Revised front and rear styling, new seats and interior trim, a specification reshuffle and a 147kW turbocharged 2.0-litre RS Turbo 4WD sedan marked the Series II range.

A RS wagon variant followed from October ’92.

Its excellent performance was a forerunner to the iconic Impreza WRX that followed from 1994. Anti-lock brakes became available on higher-end models from mid-’92.

At the same time, the recession prompted Subaru to bring a base LX wagon, while a well-equipped RX Rallye 4WD sedan also joined the range.

Currency-fuelled price hikes forced Subaru to introduce a stripped DX base sedan and wagon from July ’93.

Value-added models included the Brighton and LXS sedan from late ’93.
