Subaru's new Impreza - Not Imprezzive

Subaru has unveiled the all-new fourth-generation Impreza at the New York Motor Show, which it claims to be more efficient than the outgoing model.

Which is all well and good, but what happened to the Subaru of before?

Subaru used to be known for their cutting edge design and technology. Its Legacy models were handsome and understated-looking executive cars, and the Impreza were highly impressive performers, as evidenced by their success in the World Rally Championship during the 1990s.

However, ever since it withdrew from rallying a few years ago, the company seems to be going downhill. The Legacy now looks like a mess, and now we have this dull-looking new Impreza.

I don't know about you, but this new model doesn't come across as very exciting to me. I don't think car enthusiasts will go ga-ga over the new Impreza.

What's happened to Subaru?

For some reasons.....ugly imprezzas will eventually become acceptable in looks especially after the WRX or STi comes out...until the next uglier model comes out.

From Bug eye to pig nose to the current one...it's all the same..

Problem of being bought over by the big T. Becoming more Toyotalish liao.

Proton Persona looks much better and oh yes, it was a design years back. Still look good.

Proton Persona looks much better? It's basically a Gen 2 right? Very "Malay" feel to it actually.

I didn't see the link u provided! and got a shock upon seeing the pics

those rear lights are hideous!!

Side profile still looks pretty for the hatch. Interior looks pretty ok..

What happened to their sedan? totally no more presence.

Best looking impreza of present day is the new 2011 widebody sedan wrx/sti
Best looking impreza of the past few years is the cockeye version

Other than the absence of the frameless windows, I thought this upcoming Impreza is much nicer than current Impreza Sedan. Interior should be by far the best looking (dashboard looks kind of like Golf and IS 200, especially the centre console) with quality soft touch plastics to the dashboard and door panels.

Very much looking forward to its arrival in Singapore
