I particularly like the tailgate spoiler which most likely doesn't do anything remotely effective...apart from uglifying the rear end. The rear bumper add ons add to the mess. They need to ditch the chrome to the DLO as well.

Spoilers are actually effective on station wagons. It does not make the car handle any better, as it is not there to create downforce, but it does smooth out the airflow as it passes over the rear end. If you ever owned one, you would know that station wagons always have dirty liftbacks. Thats because of the wake created by the shape of the car as it passes through air. That's also why most hatchbacks and station wagons have wiper blades on the rear window. Without one, while driving in inclement weather you cannot see sh*t (pardon my French). Wagons, inherently, create more turbulence behind them, and that spoiler helps reducing that effect. It's a small effect, but it helps.

OCN75 was probably talking about the cosmetic one BELOW the window not the one at roof level.

Ah, yes, that one is totally f*cking useless. I believe they are called "shopping cart handles".

The Levorg isn't selling:

I really don't know why Subaru doesn't sell this here. They could probably just add it to the Impreza line-up very easily in regular and XV Crosstek trims, and steal away sales from the Jetta/Golf Sportwagen.

Levorg looks awesome... they need a Hybrid for Japan these days though.

It debuts their new 1.6l Turbo with 170hp and 250nm,
