I like the new nose better than either of the last two. I like the central grill opening and teh hood lines that flow rearward from it. Of course, I liked that on Alfas, on BMWs, on Seats, and on dozens of other cars....

Funny thing is when the bug eyed version came out a few years back, everyone that was the fan of the then current Imprezza front called it hideous and a total disaster. When the LAST bodystyle was introduced, everyone said it was hideous and a total disaster, and why did they have to change the classic round headlight look? Now this one comes out, with it's Alfa inspired grill and much more agressive headlights, and most people say it's hideous and a disaster and why couldn't they leave the attractive nose it had on it?

Next facelift and you guys will bitch about that and wish they left THIS one on it. Just like every time it gets updated!

actually Subaru's website says it's parnet company, Fuji Heavy Industries, is Japanese. I'm still pretty sure that Subaru was originated in Australia

Actually, they did make the hoodscoop smaller, says MPH magazine.

So I guess I was right Inygknok...

"The folks at Subaru also slapped on a lower-profile hood scoop (no airflow was injured during the process) that allows for better visibility and less offensive styling."

bwhahahahahaaaaaaa

Subaru started out as "The Aircraft Research Laboratory" in 1917 by Chikuhei Nakajima. Then in 1931, the company was reorganized as "Nakajima Aircraft Co., Ltd", designer of the infamous Zero fighter. At the end of the Second World War, Nakajima Aircraft was again reorganized, this time as Fuji Sangyo Co, Ltd. In 1946, Fuji Sangyo created its first Rabbit motor scooter with spare aircraft parts from the war (see picture on right). In 1950, Fuji Sangyo was divided into 12 smaller corporations according to the 1950 Corporate Credit Rearrangement Act, but between 1953-1955, four of these corporations and a newly formed corporation formed by an alliance of the four aforementioned companies were again merged together to form the Fuji Heavy Industries we know today.

The new corporation adopted the "Subaru" cluster of stars as its official logo for its line of automobiles. In 1955, Fuji Heavy Industries rolled out the P-1 as "Subaru 1500". This vehicle has the first Japanese-manufactured monocoque body.

Of course, I have to question this, as Nakajima did NOT design the Zero. It and Mitsubishi competed for the design contract with the Japanese government, but Nakjima felt the requirements were impossible to meet, and Mitsubishi ended up designing and building it.

Subaru's first car, the 1500:

bah, fine, you win. but only this time!!!


anyhow, on a serious note. im quite sure that it will be just a matter of time until people get used to the new style. its already growing on me... a bit at least.

i say give it 6 months until its roaming the streets enough for people to notice it and get to appreciate it.

I'll never appreciate anything style wise with a GM front
