I love the way my 2014 looks and am really happy I got one. I wanted the hatchback so that was an easy choice for me. The 2015 does sound like it really has a lot of potential.

You're incorrect. The new Impreza has been out for years and has the same interior dimentions as the new WRX. The back seat is considerably bigger than any Impreza has ever had, by a substantial margin. The 2015 WRX's rear seat has much more legroom than the 2014 WRX.

My 2011 which is tuned stage 2 puts out 18.5. Turbo spools very quick, probably due to the direct injection and twin scroll set up. The digital turbo gauge is a nice touch. So yea it feels very powerful right out the gate and the transmission feels solid. Definitely considering the 2015 in the future. Just figured I'd give you guys my 2 cents on my first impression.
How I wish I had the same experience as yours. So, you are saying 2015 is worth the price right?

Obviously there's preference with it comes to looks. I personally like the new body style and I hear good things about the new motor. I would buy the STI version though. I've seen a lot of blow rod bearing.

I luv my '15 mt6 limited. I read where it has overboost. It saves the highest boost reading until you reset it. My boost has been up to 22.6!

I like the sedan look. Looks are very stylish and mean. This is the first year it's not based of the impreza. They have much more room than the older generation. Oh, and that stereo really rocks!!!!! That Kardon thingy.

It's not based on the impreza the same way a buick isn't based on a chevy that's the same size. They're the same chassis beneath the body paneling for the most part. Compared to previous years, the WRX/STi contain a larger set of non-impreza exterior panels and they lost the impreza name on the trunk. Other than that, the 15 WRX and 15 Impreza aren't really more different than they were in 2002 when the WRX came out.
