    The WRX and STI models better look like sex or the tuner crowd is going to puke themselves...

    Not gonna lie...all Ford has to do is turbo and AWD the Fiesta and it will give Subaru chills up their spine.

    I am not sure what to think. Like some posters have said, I need to see it as a WRX or STI to make my mind up. I remember when the 2006 came out and people hated the headlights, I remember 2008 and the cry was that Subaru had sold its soul. I think that it will just take time for people to get used to this body style.

    I cant imagine the STI and WRX looking that much different than whats on the road now. I mean they just released that body style within the past two years. Plus, the STI hatch was created in order for subaru to stay competitive in WRC. I doubt the hatch is going away, nevermind getting a radical facelift.

    So glad I bought the 2011. That thing is hideous, the Aztec/Caliber comparisons are right on.

    Its been done. Why do you think ford was regularly kicking subaru's ass in wrc? .. the only place subarus are constantly top fishers is here in the states. Round the rest of the world they have some seriously stiff competition from the other makes.

    Oh no no, I wasnt referring to WRC. I was saying as a street car...Fiesta's are only FF. But if they were Turbo AWD, along with Ford's increasing quality...tuners might switch over. Probably the SRT-4 crowd.

    there are very few Subaru drivers in the WRC anymore... Mainly Citrogen and Fords anymore and Ford has been doing great... If only we could've had the FQ Evo's here...lol

    We can get the focus RS .. but its got volvo c30 badging all over it and its a bit on the ugly side. I agree though I agree, the focus crowd would definitely convert quick.. I'm sure there would be others too.

    The BEst and Most loved look of all the Subaru's is the 4 door 01 Impreza, everything sorta went down hill from that especially the toyota camry look alike wrx 08-10.

    Agreed. GC8 was amazing. Turn those headlights into HID projectors...game on. Although I must admit Im a big fan of the 4door STI SEDAN.

    hated it

    as subaru gets further and further away from its rally roots, its becoming just a car. nothing special. if this has anything to do with toyota...i can see why this is occuring to subaru. i mean, totyotas are boring ass cars. friggin grandma cars
