Well, I felt this deserved a new thread.

Subaru's new design direction and new STI w/ hatchback version.

I really like this hatchy and I don't think I like any hatchies.


What do you think?

I think it's pretty pretty ugly. Does it have the same engine specs as the current STI?

The only major difference I see is the scoop, but other than that I like it :clap:

Saabaru!

I like the looks better than the current ones, but I still like the older ones best.

the current one looks better.

Eww.... I still have trouble looking at the current generation. The front of that is good (well, better than the current one), but the back is nasty. Subaru needs to get better designs and even more power to beat out the Evo X, it's gonna be a hard fight.

Well, it almost resembles a Saturn Aura (or the opel whatever for you europeans)


Anyways, I like it.


I have taken this from another forum





Hopefully that answers more questions.

i like it that way! better than the picnic table

I like the picnic table.

it suits the saloon, just not the hatch!

Now that as a two-door would be dead sexy.

I'm not gonna lie, I really hate the spoilers on the STis. I really like WRX's more. I like the Spec C that has a WRX spoiler on an STi.

Subaru should stick to making saloon cars as their performance cars, just more menacing in my opinion! A hatchback would be too much like a Civic Type-R!

for some reason hatchbacks just dont tickle my fancey

i second that!
do you think theyll make a B4 Blitz of the new Legacy???

posted by  True_Brit

I like hatches, they're handy for carrying stuff, they look sporty, and they usually don't add much weight. But that new STI hatch is ugly as sin.

And why the hell does every new car have to have twin exhaust???? I mean....Hyundai SUV's with twin exhausts look hideous. And so does this STI. One is enough.

I guess consumers want dual exhausts. W/out them, they will lag behind competition.

posted by  Bronxie

*Sigh*...Stupid consumers...

posted by  Mathew

I like dual exhaust, it makes the car look balanced. With a single exhaust on one side to me the car looks un-even.

posted by  greg985

Ya, I think that way too. Besides, it adds so much horsepower. In some cases it can add as much as one "NOS" sticker. :laughing:

posted by  StiMan

In some cases maybe even as much as some underglow. :laughing:

My car has a single exhaust in the middle. I call it an anus.

posted by  Bronxie

i was just looking at the pic of the Vauxhall Corsa VXR and ive noticed a couple of things.....
http://www.askaprice.com/images/news/inhouse/2519-03.jpg
Renault first put the diffuser on 'hot hatches', vauxhall/gm have taken that idea,
the side vent in the front wing looks like the same vent found on the mini cooper S, the triagular exhaust, like the one found on the Honda Civic and finally, the whels, which look like the ones first found on the BMW X5!!!
Vauxhall are up to something!!!:laughing:
