Subaru unleashed sedan variants to complement the new generation hatch - and both body styles share the same turbocharged technical advances.
The 2.5 litre turbocharged engine produces 195 kW of power at 6000 rpm and 343 Nm of torque at 4000 rpm.
While Impreza WRX is meaner, it's also greener - lower fuel consumption and emissions result from the engineering refinement.
Fuel consumption is improved in the combined cycle from 10.7 l/100km to 10.4 l/100km, while carbon dioxide emissions are down from 252 g/km to 247 g/km.
Among the highlights, Impreza WRX offers:
-0-100 km/h time improved from 5.8 seconds to 5.31 seconds over previous model,
-26 kW more power
-23 Nm more torque
-Enhanced suspension package - sharper, more aggressive handling
-Better fuel efficiency (combined cycle/ADR 81/01)
-Carbon dioxide emissions reduced
-Options of leather trim with sunroof, and satellite navigation
-New mesh grille, with WRX badges front and rear
-Distinctive red brake calipers
-Red stitch seating and steering wheel adds to sporty appearance
-WRX logos on front seats
-Simple choice between hatch or sedan, as prices identical.
Impreza WRX's 2.5 litre turbo charged engine produces 195 kW of power at 6000 rpm, up 15.4 percent, and 343 Nm of torque at 4000 rpm, up 7.2
percent over the previous years model.
Maximum turbocharger boost is also increased from 78 kPa to 92 kPa, resulting in a substantially faster car.
A revised exhaust system provides a 30 percent reduction in gas flow restriction, to match the turbocharger performance and increase engine power.
Standard equipment for the WRX includes:
Colour-coded mirrors and door handles, double locking system, front fog lights, headlights auto off, mesh grille, privacy glass, rear diffuser, rear roof spoiler with LED brake light (hatch,) rear roof mounted radio antenna, rear wiper (hatch), self-levelling Xenon headlights with pop-up washers, sports body kit, tail pipe cover, WRX badges - grille and boot/hatch and 17-inch alloy wheels - space saver spare
