    I'd put safety before style any day, but of-course it's best to have them both!

    I'm not thrilled about the styling either, especially compared to the very pretty outgoing 2005-2009 model. But the new car is better in pretty much every other way, and the safety rating is just icing on the cake.
    And, btw, Subaru pretty much telegraphed this, saying at their intros that they "expected" the car would get five-star ratings. THAT's confidence (and/or a boatload of high-intensity computer crash-test simulation).

    Safety wise - may be good. Styling wise - aha

    Let's face it -- Subaru just makes some quality cars. The just need to improve their reliability and they are right there with Honda/Toyota.

    Good safety but I'm not convinced about the styling. It seems like with every new model Subaru gets worse and worse.

    There goes the resale value on Volvo's. The Legacy looks to good to be such a safe car.
