When we first saw the new Subaru Impreza and Tribeca at the New York Auto Show, we were a little disappointed with the overall styling direction. It seems as though Subaru wanted to play it safe with two of its most important models, but little did we know, the worst was yet to come. After seeing the two-tone 2008 Outback on the VWvortex forums, we think Subaru just abandoned safe in favor of just plain ugly. Although we can appreciate the dearth of plastic cladding surrounding the Outback, it honestly looks like the plant where this beauty was assembled ran out of paint for the front and rear bumpers, and we're seeing bare plastic. This Subaru may be the worst interpretation of two-tone paint of the 21st century. Congratulations Aztek, you're off the hook. At this point, body cladding would be like a gift from Harley Earl.
