Thumbs down What have they done!!

Looks like any other boring hatchback - As the style police were obviously looking the other way why the designers did not go the whole hog and make it into a people carrier is a mystery!
Guess next time I change my STI it will have to be for an EVO!

OMG!

I was hoping beyond hope that they would pull it out of the bag, but It's worse than i feared. It looks like a guppy from the front and the back is the same as the WRX which is a disaster.
Evo ownership is a dead cert at some point in the not too distant future then.

Funny you should mention that, but as the Evo X comes out here very shortly, there are some incredible deals on new IX's (less than 8,000 quid). We have enough money banked to buy a new one at some of the prices we have been quoted. We are seriously considering it.
Brand new Evo X RS price incl tax is 2,997,750 yen = 12,489 pounds. Thats cheaper than the Sti. What future then for the Impreza?
