beautifully done interior and the exterior is... an Outback. I'm sure existing customers will love it but doubt anyone will be entering the showroom for the first time because of this.

Subaru really needs to work on their base engine. 182 hp just doesn't cut it any more.

Eh, for the majority of shopper 182hp is fine (esp since I think I think Subaru tunes the engine to feel very jumpy off the line).

I myself would prefer the turbo, of course.

The front air dam is ungainly, and the whole thing is predictable, but this actually looks like a nice evolution over the last one. I particularly like the way they handled the D-pillar (which is almost... STYLISH).

I fully agree. Very nice interior, and whilst I think it looks good, I agree it is more or less the same as the two previous generations, so will hardly bring in too many new customers that didn't fancy one before.

Subaru keeps having the nasty tendency of shooting itself on the foot at the very last moment:
- Design is nice until you get to the third window, which spoils the whole design
- Engine is totally right (flat boxer and all that) until you notice is does NOT have a very needed turbo
- Gear box is quite nice for a CVE, until you learn that gear ratios are totally off and not aadapted to the engine. At all.

And the list goes on. No mistery that Subaru is still a niche brand, it is almost as if they were trying hard NOT to be a sucessful brand, or rather, a brand only for the initiated.

Quite a shame because their concepts are superb.

They follow the Cadillac play book. Show something great and then disappoint with a class trailing production model.
