Additional Info: Available as a coupe (2 door), saloon (4 door) or estate (5 door). Engine choices include a 1.6, 1.8 and 2.0 litre units (note: the US didn’t get the 2.0 Turbo, they got a 1.8, 2.2 and a 2.5 litre unit). The specs vary from country to country with the 2.0 turbo producing anything from 200bhp-282bhp. The STi (Subaru Tecnica International) had an uprated engine, gearbox and suspension over the WRX. Another special edition (amongst many) was the RA (Race Altered) which reduced weight and had a few performance upgrades. Others just to mention here were the 555, RB5, 22B and P1 (see below). A facelift took place in 1997 and here in the UK the 208bhp Turbo gets an increase to 215bhp in 1999. The Impreza has seen much success in world rallying.
