Subaru adds RV to Impreza range

New addition: The RV is available only as a hatchback

Subaru's Impreza heads for the outback

22 May 2001

SUBARU'S popular Outback softroader four-wheel drive now has a little brother, the Impreza RV.

Originally called Outback Sport when displayed in concept form at this year's Melbourne International Motor Show, the name was changed following feedback from customer clinics, indicating some confusion with the Outback.

Impreza RV uses Subaru's trademark all-wheel drive system and a compact 2.0 litre horizontally opposed engine.

The RV is available as a $29,990 manual or $31,980 automatic. The manual also has dual range.

It becomes a permanent part of the Impreza range, sitting between the GX and RX in the range.

Available only as a five-door hatch, the RV features a distinctive two-tone colour scheme, including grey opal bumpers, wheel arches, door rub strips and special badging. Sixteen-inch alloy wheels, air-conditioning, dual front airbags and four wheel ABS anti-lock disc brakes are all standard.

The two-tone theme continues inside with black and grey dashboard and door trims and grey fleck seats.

Other standard features include AM/FM radio with single in-dash CD, cruise control, dual trip meters, front and rear fog lights (single rear), rear spoiler, remote central locking, integrated with hazard lights for visual recognition height adjustable driver's seat and variable intermittent windscreen wiper control.

Nick Senior, general manager, Subaru Australia, said: "Impreza RV fills a gap in our small car range.

"It's a fun package that's great to drive and draws on the fine reputation of Impreza to produce a good looking car with a character all of its own."
