Subaru Impreza Sports Wagon
The Subaru Impreza is a compact car that was introduced to the small-car market segment in 1993. It's name "Impreza" is derived from the Italian word for "motto" or "badge". In Polish, "Impreza" is also used to refer to a celebration or party.
In 2001, Subaru released the second generation "GD" Impreza, which was intended to be bigger, safer, and more refined that its predecessor. Many car enthusiasts were unimpressed with the changes, as this version was heavier and slower. The WRX sedan had a wider track to improve handling, but other models stayed the same. There was no longer a coupe option. The exterior design of the GD Impreza was quite polarizing, though it was improved upon with a facelift in 2003 and a new design in 2006.
The US version of the Impreza was released in 2002, with the WRX STi following in 2004. The power of the WRX was boosted with a turbocharged 2.0L engine, but the STi had a even more powerful turbocharged 2.5L EJ25 engine. The different markets had varied releases, with some Asian countries offering a 1.6L SOHC entry level Impreza. In Australia, the GX served as the baseline, while the RV was the sport model, and the WRX and STi had designated positions.
In 2005, Subaru replaced the 2.5L engine with a 2.0L engine for the RS model, now called the 2.0R. The WRX, on the other hand, got an upgraded 2.5L engine. Automatic transmission was removed from the WRX, while side airbags were added to the Impreza range. The 2006 design debuted the "jet intake and wings" grille from the B9 Tribeca SUV. This style has been met with mixed responses, though better regarded on the Impreza than the Tribeca.
