Those aren't just 'dips'. Those are tears. The poor thing is crying from embarassment. Subaru took the design, threw out the Neon, and jammed in a Mustang and a Civic. You can almost draw hard lines dividing the different pieces. How many Mercedes, BMW's, and Jaguars do you mistake for another car? There really should be a grating in front of that intake to protect small children from being sucked in. The ones that aren't frightened away, that is. I'm surprised they didn't make it chrome and get Mad Max to unveil it.
I must admit that I do really like the lower half of the bumper. Most of it, anyway. Is the wiring still there? Not integrating the rear end of the 'ankle' into the bumper end (to create a flare) was a mistake.
Just goes to show what smokin' schoolgirls' panties will do to designers.
How in hell is this thing supposed to be a sleeper now? It reminds me of WWF wrestlers, dressed up funny but not top-class athletes. If these pictures are correct, I'll have an extra year or two to save up while the aftermarket industry manages to develop a car equivalent of Mrs. Doubtfire padding.
Also notice that the hood curvature has been inversed, I suppose to get the air flowing over the middle to go faster.
I'm happy to sit where I am and watch your tail lights if this is what the front looks like; the bad form shows up even from inside...
When the NA auto show confirms that the styling gets no better, I'm taking back my deposit.
