The Car

27 Jun 2001

Distinctive headlights are clear-lens multi-reflector halogen type with integrated indicators

A ski-port, which doubles as an armrest, replaces the old car's split-fold rear seat, reducing total luggage capacity

The driver's seat has height adjustment with 50mm of movement, up 20mm from the old model

All Imprezas are equipped with ABS anti-lock brakes and have front seatbelt pretensioners and load limiters

Lap-sash seatbelts are standard for all passengers

Dual airbags are standard up front

Remote central locking is standard, integrated with hazard lights for visual recognition

Multi-parabola headlights with built-in fog lights are a feature of the RX nose

External mirrors and doorhandles are matched to the body colour

Front seat adjustment includes backrest angle, height and fore/aft slide

The AM/FM stereo radio-CD is located above the heating and ventilation controls on the central control panel

The all-alloy, 2.0-litre, four-cylinder engine is a development of the boxer (or horizontally opposed) engine used in the previous generation car

The RX engine develops 90kW at 5600rpm and 184Nm at 3600rpm

Impreza RX uses a fully independent strut suspension with coil springs front and rear

MacPherson struts are used for the front suspension, with a multi-link arrangement at the rear

Bosch 5.3A four-channel, four-sensor anti-lock braking system is standard on RX models

Cruise control is a standard feature on RX

Like the WRX, Impreza RX also gets a Momo steering wheel

Semi-automatic air-conditioning is on the standard equipment list

Wheels are 15-inch seven-spoke alloy

Did you know?

Although the basic size and shape is retained, the new Impreza is 40mm wider than its predecessor and the track is 20mm wider on the sedan - hence the flared guards
