Looks like a RWD Legacy...which would be a good thing.

In other news, I saw a 2009 TSX today. Looked better than I thought it would. It's damn shame that Acura doesn't bolt a turbo to that engine and add SH-AWD and make it an Audi A4 2.0T killer...and a reliable one at that.

As long as it does not look like a ricer boi toi.

Why does Subaru have such nice hardware but have to fvck it all up with cheesy (or boring) exteriors and no sunroof on most models?

Yes, I saw one few days ago. Man, it really looks a lot better than it was in the picture. (More specific, it was a lot better than last gen, IMO) It's so shame Acura chose underpowered 2.4 I4 for such 30k+ sports sedan, but meanwhile, I am hoping diesel powered TSX would be a great one.

Anyway, back to OP. Design-wise, as many others say, it's Subaruish. I hoped Toyota looking sports car with Subaru performance. :(

The fact that it's estimated to be below $20,000 and pack 220hp in RWD form?

And is shorter, and has two doors.

Keep dreaming. Notice how these projections are invariably and massively off? By the time it hits dealer lots and has air conditioning and a stereo it'll cost a lot more than that, no doubt about it.

RWD, 220 HP stock, and under $20K sounds like a winner to me. If it's the Subaru 2.5, it will be easy to squeeze more power of it.

Rwd, 220hp, under 20k? I dunno about that, something will have to suffer to get it that cheap, most likely fit and finish and a cheap interior. And watch it weigh over 3000lbs.
