2015 Subaru WRX

The 2015 WRX has hit dealers (that is to say, I saw one on the road last night).

I see that it is offered in leather with a 6-speed manual.

I like the clean look quite a bit:



As much as I love my little BRZ, I do miss having a back seat. I don't think I miss the back seat enough to get rid of the car, but if I were in the market today, I'd definitely impulsively buy a new WRX in silver with manual.

Thoughts?

I still think the two door cars look the best....but then I own one so I am a little biased.

Looks like a fuckin' Toyota Corolla with body work on it. Imprezas have looked like shit ever since the mid 2000s.

Really? I think the photo above shows some really clean, beautiful lines.

My visual complaint would be the back of the rear doors is too close to the back of the car. Seems strange to me. I liked that spacing better on my STi (05). But the new design seems a lot slicker. It'll probably grow on me. I like the lack of a massive wing.

A visual mess, but a champion in inclement conditions.

The STi is sexier.



Used to be that there wasn't such a noticeable difference between the two. I'm kind of bummed, as I saw a non-STi WRX in my future. But indeed, it looks like a Toyota Corolla S. It has homely wheel/body plastic proportions.

VERY bummed that the wagon / hatchback model is no longer offered- It made for a bad-ass all arounder that could handle xtra cargo...Plus it looked great.

The WRX front end is the equivalent in the auto business of GM's horribly cartoonish/plastic back end designs of the mid to late 70's.

The WRX was never a looker. It's a drivers car. Once you're in it, you don't have to look at the exterior.

This came up today about the possible return of the wagon: http://wot.motortrend.com/1404_we_he...social21349524

Ugghh. Dead to me. And the new styling looks too transformer-ish to me.

I probably see 4 or 5 wrx wagons for every 1 wrx sedan I see around here. But I also see a lot of adults driving them, and child seats in the back (like mine has). I think the wagon bias and the older drivers are less common elsewhere.

Do not like the lines, too soft. No 5 door!? Blasphemy. Not surprising though considering, where I live at least, I see 3 or 4 sedans to 1 wagon. In my opinion the wagons are much more appealing than the sedans.
