Car reviews - Subaru - Impreza - range


Subaru's facelifted Impreza range arrives Down Under packing a 2.5-litre WRX and STi

30 Sep 2005

SUCH is the powerful marketing imagery Subaru’s hot turbocharged WRX sends to the masses, that the media push behind the MY06 Subaru Impreza has studiously ignored the relevancy of its normally aspirated models to concentrate on the WRX and STi models. The official line was that the bread-and-butter 2.0i models were still on the ship from Japan but it has to be said that with ever rising fuel prices, these are the cars the bulk of Impreza buyers will want to know about, particularly as Subaru itself says it expects 7200 Imprezas a year to be 2.0-litre and 2.0R models. By comparison, the Rex and STi models will add just 2800 sales to the overall figure. However, with a halo-car in your range like the WRX it is perhaps understandable that it will achieve a wider spread of coverage than its lesser siblings, particularly given the car’s legion of followers.
Model release date: 1 October 2005 to 1 August 2007

Many Subaru Impreza fans hailed the arrival of the MY2003 models, with their more streamlined front-ends and "bugless" headlights that was a feature of all MY00 Imprezas. After a dip in popularity, the ’03 models brought the fans back to the fold and the WRX continues to be a favourite. The Rex is by far the most recognisable Subaru model, having built its performance credentials way back in 1994 as an action-packed and low-cost performance car. It was, and continues to be, something of a performance bargain, a reign that has continued for 11 years.
