Small changes to the grille, wheels, cabin trim, colour palette and features list marked the first Impreza facelift.
The previous LX became the LXS special edition, the ‘real’ LX lost air-con and the GX gained cruise control.
In late ’95 the short-run WRX Rallye introduced the series’ signature blue paintwork.
In March ’96 a 85kW 2.0-litre boxer engine was slotted underneath the Sportswagon and its limited-edition Gravel-X counterpart, while an 88kW version powered the sporty RX 4WD limited edition sedan.
