The car looks like a sad puppy - nothing aggressive about that...Originally posted by kenoka
This is the International 2003. The US Model Year is always one year off. Our MY 2003 is everyone else's MY 2002. For some reason we have to believe we're getting everything in advance, when in reality we get everything last. :sarc The facelifted Impreza should be here for calendar year 2003 as a 2004 model, but it will be released everywhere else as a 2003.
These are not official, but I believe they're accurate. All the little details people have obtained agree with the pictures. Plus there is the scoop pic of the white sedan with masking all over it, which looks identical to the silver sedan.

The front looks a bit better than the bug-eyed version, but what has happened to the rear? Leave a riceboy alone in a garage with scissors, epoxy and some cardboard and this is what you get. Hopefully it looks better IRL than on pictures.
Amen to that!Originally posted by OppenheimeR
I like the 'fake' version better than this ugly car. The first generation Impreza's were ok, the second ones were less cool and the latest version is really ugly.. Ugly, ugliest, Vectra, Impreza..
I would almost say 'your brother has not taste at all', but I didn't .. The Impreza's are well motorized and AWD is fine, but the looks are always a problem. This new Impreza looks also a bit like a Hyundai (Accent, Excel, Elantra, I can't remember => not so relevant ). And you don't want to drive in an expensive car and hear people say; 'Hey dad, that's a new Hyundai..'Originally posted by Labtec
I didn't want to buy old WRX because it was so ugly (but it was very powerful/good buy for the price). But the new design makes the car look very awesome, my 2nd choice if not for the 6. (my brother is most likely gonna get this WRX, he's in love with it).[/b]
It really is a good time ; and the thought of putting a Hyundai-badge on the WRX would be a very cool idea.. I already start to smile when I see those BMW- and Alfa-boys after they've lost a race... from a HYUNDAI!!!Originally posted by kenoka
Actually I think it would be hilarious to change the badging on the new WRX and add Hyundai badging. Then race somebody. Can you imagine the look on their face?
I've heard the new WRX face looks like:
1. Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V
2. Nissan Altima
3. Kia Spectra
4. Acura RSX
5. Hyundai Elantra
And some others that I can't remember. Poor Subaru. They try to be different, and they get blasted. Then they try conformity and they get blasted. Hopefully their new chief of design will get them all sorted out for the next iterations of the Impreza and Legacy. By the way, there are rumors that a version of the Legacy B4 RSK will make it over to the US. That could be serious competition for the MazdaSpeed 6: 2.0 twin turbo, 276hp, AWD, etc. This is such a good time for car lovers! [/b]
