Man what's with so much hate on the exterior design! IMO this car looks simply stunning the way it is...I think at the first reveal I didn't like the back (as it appears to sit a bit high - almost like a small crossover?), but even that's grown on me.

I think the front end is even better than the GR86.

Pretty or not, thanks again to Subaru and Toyota for updating this car and giving something to the enthusiasts for a reasonable price

I don't get it either. Car looks as good as or better than current-gen (of which I'm a fan) to me.

I especially don't get comments about the new car being "too high". It looks lower to me in most pics. In person, I guarantee it won't look like a "small crossover"!

Agreed! I've never been a fan of huge, tall, gaping-maw grills. Really like the slim (vertically) new BRZ grill and the absence of the moustache. GR86 looks great as well, but so far I prefer the BRZ.

I would have waited if i didnt like the 2020.

Need the pricing information and release date, which we still dont know yet.
But one of the videos said the GR86 premium would start at 31k...so.....might have still ended up with the 2020 anyways due to price.

Looks are subjective. Why are people that think it is butt ugly not allowed to say so? We are not trying to tell others not to like it simply that we do not. That is not “hate” in any way shape or form it is an expression of our opinion.
To me it is still a conglomeration of conflicting lines and tacked on boy racer body kit parts and I will bloody well say that if I want.
