AT-A-GLANCE ® 2009 Subaru Impreza 2.5i 4-Door sedan • 2.5i 5-Door • Outback Sport New-generation Impreza and Outback Sport were introduced for 2008, with more sophisticated styling, two new body styles, greater room, refinement and comfort, and advanced new safety technology. Outback Sport blends versatility of a small sport-utility vehicle with passenger car dynamics, comfort and fuel efficiency. Standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive gives Impreza 2.5i and Outback Sport models outstanding all-climate traction. What’s New for 2009 Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) made standard on 2.5i models; now standard across the Impreza line. Rear disc brakes added to 2.5i: 4-wheel disc brakes now standard across the Impreza line. Brake Assist safety system made standard on 2.5i; now standard across the Impreza line. Incline Start Assist made standard on 2.5i with 5-speed manual transmission; formerly part of optional Premium Package and already standard on Outback Sport with 5-speed. Inner fender liners added to rear wheel wells to help reduce road noise. Body-color exterior mirrors and door handles standard on 2.5i; chrome exterior door handles on Outback Sport. Minor interior trim changes. Key Facts Two body styles, each on a longer wheelbase than previous-generation Impreza models (103.1 in. vs. 99.4 in.); 4-Door sedan is larger than its predecessor; 5-Door model replaced previous wagon and is the only style for Outback Sport. Longer wheelbase results in improved interior roominess and ride quality. New chassis improves crash-worthiness, and the stiffer platform gives Impreza crisper handling. Sophisticated double-wishbone rear suspension provides enhanced driving dynamics and a smooth, quiet ride. Outback Sport is a 5-Door model with two-tone appearance plus chassis and interior enhancements, including: standard heavy-duty raised suspension, 17-inch alloy wheels, dual-mode heated front seats, cargo area 12v outlet and more. 2.5-liter Boxer engine is among most powerful standard engines in the compact segment; provides broad torque curve for excellent everyday driving performance. Two different versions of Symmetrical AWD, depending on transmission: Models with 5-speed manual transmission feature a viscous coupling locking center differential that splits power 50:50 front to rear. Models with 4-speed automatic transmission use an electronically managed continuously variable transfer clutch that actively manages the power split based on acceleration, deceleration and available traction. Both systems power all four wheels and will transfer power to the wheels with the best grip. Ring Shaped Frame Reinforcement body structure provides outstanding occupant protection. Standard safety features include 3-point seatbelts for all seating positions, front seatbelt pretensioners and force limiters, Subaru Advanced Airbag System, curtain side air bags, front seat sideimpact air bags and rear seat headrests for all three seating positions. Incline Start Assist (standard on 5-speed models) can momentarily prevent the vehicle from rolling backward when being driven away from a stop on an incline. Tire Pressure Monitoring System standard on all models. Interior features high-quality materials, including double-stitched fabrics and high-grade plastics. All models pre-wired for XM or SIRIUS Satellite Radio. Navigation models have standard SIRIUS. ® ® Basic Specifications 4-door or 5-door 103.1 in. 4-Door: 180.3 in. 5-Door: 173.8 in. 4-Door trunk: 11.3 cu. ft. 5-Door max cargo: 44.4 cu. ft.
