Subaru adds a three-box sedan to its newest Impreza range, but WRX buyers must wait

9 Sep 2008

SUBARU has reinstated the sedan in its popular Impreza line-up, with the intention of seeing sales rise from at least 1000 to 1200 units per month.

But WRX fanciers must wait until December before the turbocharged version of the G3-series three-box four-door sedan comes on stream, resulting in all cars until then being powered by Subaru’s 110kW/196Nm 2.0-litre naturally-aspirated horizontally-opposed four-cylinder petrol engine.

Pricing is identical to the existing G3 five-door hatch models launched in October last year, meaning that the R starts off from $24,90, extending to $26,490 for the RX and $29,490 for the RS, while the four-speed automatic adds $2000 to all models.

Furthermore, the latter two gain the option of a sunroof and leather upholstery.

As we reported last week, the Impreza 2.0D features a 1998cc double overhead cam 16-valve four-cylinder common-rail variable nozzle-type turbo-diesel and a unique closed-type diesel particulate filter system for reduced emissions.

In the Impreza 2.0D it delivers 108kW of power at 3600rpm, and 350Nm of torque from 1800rpm, for a carbon dioxide emissions rating of 156g/km.

Only a six-speed manual gearbox will be offered for now in Europe (which receives the diesel models from December), helping explain the Australian market delay but an automatic transmission should come on stream within the next 18 months, according to one Subaru insider.
