    Pretty disappointing. Looks like the current car with some ugly cladding. The performance isn't much different. Interior does look good, but the current car was decent enough. I predict a pretty significant body change/refresh to be on the way ASAP. I remember the revolt of 2008. I know every single time a new one comes out people immediately complain, but this is one of the worst. Better than 2008, but pretty bad.

    I'm not disagreeing with any of the above, I just have no horse in the race at all since I haven't had any serious interest in a WRX for a few years now since owning the mayo on white bread sandwich that was the SJ XT.

    It's no better nor worse than what they've already been doing for a while in my opinion. Over the last 15 years or so cars have all started to look the same. I'm interested to see what people have to say about the 'GT'.

    2008 WRX, the only used car you could probably buy at pre-pandemic prices right now.

    It's almost like it's not sure if it's supposed to be a sedan or crossover. I HATE boxy wheel arches almost as much as that hideous plastic body cladding repulses me. If you can possibly look past those wheel arches and cladding, I actually like the body design from most angles otherwise. What's actually remotely exciting is the 2.4L turbo engine in the WRX chassis - looking forward to seeing what it's capable of in the hands of legit performance shops testing its limits. Definitely not 2008 bad. Maybe the STI won't have the cladding...I might be able to live with the boxy arches without the cladding. At any rate, I'm not buying one because I'm poor anyhow. :)

    Someone photoshopped paint matched cladding...I might actually hate it even more if that's possible

    Does anyone know if that wheel arch cladding that is on so, so many vehicles offers any advantages (meaning ease of or lower cost) to the manufacturing or assembly process? Can it be strictly for appearance? If so, what is visually appealing by making the wheel arch look larger than it actually is? Or is it to hide the inevitable rust that forms in wheel aches for a longer period of time before it assaults the owner's eye? I have come to accept that visual styling cue on SUVs and crossover wagons, but on run-of-the-mill sedans? No.

    It's a cross between wishful thinking for rust prevention and ****ty taste (see all white house trim)

    If anything, it will speed up the rusting process.

    Looks like a WRX mated with an Outback or Crosstrek. I agree with Joe...the most exciting part is the 2.4L.

    I really like the interior. The “GT” model makes me lol a little. “CVT-GT”

    That's lame. I never heard of it before I thought it might be something new.

    The GT? It is. Sounds like adjustable suspension, Recaros/interior upgrade, etc(along with CVT trans.).

    Not really, since it is so far from what made a Subaru, a Subaru for so many people.

    Subaru makes zero cars I'm interested in buying. This is ugly as hell.
