2009-2012 (Regular Sedan)
Although the sedan Centeng of the WRX in addition to also WRX STI exist, a regular non-performance variation of the Impreza compact was introduced for once. The regular sedan in addition to also its WRX counterpart was launched first in April 2009 while the WRX STI replaced its lowly brother in November 2010 through a facelift product. Do take note the regular R Sport product was replaced by the fourth generation product in 2012 while the WRX STI stayed until 2014 (by that will time, that will had dropped the Impreza name).
Depending on what you need, either a 2.0 or 2.5 turbocharged (with varying horsepower figures) engine is actually offered. The 2.0 versions have a cruiser car-like personality since reaching upper revs will possess the engine complain although This particular will unleash the vehicle’s power. Choosing the 2.5 for the WRX in addition to also WRX STI versions have different horsepower figures, with the WRX being quick yet not scary quick for first timers in addition to also the STI packing that will adrenaline rush. Since all cylinders are positioned horizontally, that will feels balanced at any speed without that will outside noise due to high levels of insulation. When that will comes to driving This particular vehicle, that will is actually a joy to drive in addition to also the suspension does not give passengers road imperfections that will are transmitted (WRX in addition to also WRX STI versions gain a different suspension setting) yet fuel consumption is actually poor, due to a standard all wheel drive system.
Excellent Internal quality greets occupants of the Impreza, alongside cabin space not bad enough for four people. When that will comes to cargo carrying, the sedan features a shallow trunk which limits its capacity.

How Much could that will Cost Me
Prepare to shell out more than your average Japanese compact when that will comes to maintaining one especially that will Subaru maintenance is actually a bit higher plus the standard all wheel drive will make fuel consumption high. Although there are no reported issues with R Sport Imprezas, WRX in addition to also WRX STI have turbo issues so do inspect that will one thoroughly. If fuel consumption is actually a priority, there are various other better choices.
