Don't forget that it has a completely new frame and chassis, 70%!!! Stiffer than the outgoing 2016, and 40% less body roll...that is quite significant, and a lower center of gravity and a 13 :01 steering ratio, eyesight technology and apple car play, android auto and starlink. That is quite a package for their line ups base model. The interior looks very nicely updated as well to accomodate the new tech, and I still swear I see leather trim stitching around the upper dash surfaces???

As for the looks they are just incorporating a lot of what every other major car brand is doing to keep up with design trends while still having traditional subaru aesthetic traits.

I'll bet it handles and performs much better than a corrola LOL.

The Next gen STI's should be PHENOMENAL if they follow the same trends they did with the impreza redesign.

I'd love to know how those stiffness/rigidity figures stack up against the current WRX/STi chassis

I like the hatch. Overall much improved over all previous models since the GD. Only took 10 years.

And, from the new Impreza, we also get a glimpse of what the new WRX and WRX STI will one-day be like. What's your take on the new design?
I dislike. not because of you, because this thing is butt ugly.

Not digging it. The tail lights are far too big and prominent. I absolutely hate how they (and the headlights) stick out from the body. 👎🏻

The front end isn't too bad. Nice subtle changes here and there. The interior also has some nice touches. Looks like you get a much nicer interior for the money now, compared to the current and previous generations.

The rear just kills it for me though. I feel like they basically took the tail lights off the Corolla, changed the corner edges a tad, and through them on. Just doesn't match the rest of the design to me.

LOL about the corrola comparisons, the impreza is LEAPS and BOUNDS above a corrola in every way. The new impreza "looks" like a lot of other cars to me as well, but that is what car manufacturers do.

Edit*

Aftermarket will undoubtabley supply a different tail light kit once these are hitting the streets and the mods start.....

Regarding the tail lights, remember the famous WRX concept. Maybe Subaru is trying to get closer to that original concept with the lines and lights as much as they can.

With that being said, I think it will look better on the future Sti with the wider body.

Add the side vents, the wide fenders, the bigger rims, maybe it's just me, but I could see something closer to the original concept once the WRX and STi come out.
