And now for something completely different. Somewhere in the past few years I went from finding the newest member of the Sti family incredibly boring, to viewing it as one of my favorite current sedan designs. Also interesting is how unique it is. Try to think of another sedan that looks similar.

There isnโ€™t one. Itโ€™s sharp and aggressive, without being over-the-top. Itโ€™s chiseled, but not folded-over origami death-by-a-million-creases. The front end is distinctive Subaru, with beautifully paired wheel and accent colors. Man. The more I look at this the more I like it.

Is this how it was with all the other generations? Hated and called ugly at first, until eventually they were beloved designs?ย
