Subaru Impreza 1
Assembly Ōta, Gunma, Japan (1993-present)

Predecessor Subaru Leone/Loyale
The Subaru Impreza is a compact car that was first introduced by Subaru in 1993.
"Impreza" is a coined word, deriving from an originally Italian word, impresa, meaning a feat, achievement or
The Impreza was introduced after the popular Leone/Loyale was cancelled with the aging EA series engine. The
Impreza was introduced with the popular EJ series engine found in the larger Subaru Legacy. In Japan, the Impreza
sells more than the larger Legacy due to Japanese vehicle size legislation, which offers a reduced tax liability
because of its smaller exterior dimensions.
Compared to vehicles in a similar size class such as Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic, Nissan Sentra, Suzuki SX4,
Mitsubishi Lancer (including Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution) and Mazda Protegé/Mazda Axela, only the Impreza has
always offered AWD. Subaru Impreza made this feature standard equipment in all trims, while its competitor,
Mitsubishi Lancer puts this feature to Ralliart trims and Evolution versions. Subaru produces a lower volume of
slightly upscale, well-equipped, sportier Impreza models, unlike other contemporaries in the compact category that
offer no-frills base trims. 
Subaru chose to continue their longstanding use of the boxer engine in the Impreza. According to Subaru, their
configuration of the engine inline with the transmission minimizes body roll due to the lower center of gravity
compared with offset engines in most other vehicles. This is similar to the design of the Citroen 2CV, providing light
weight and compact, economic design for basic cars. The boxer design provides good vibration mitigation due to the
principles of a balanced engine because the movement of each piston is largely countered by a piston in the opposing
cylinder bank, eliminating the need for a counter-rotating weighted crankshaft (harmonic balancer), but with some
vibration from offsets. Torque steer is also reduced with this type of powertrain layout since the front drive shafts are
of equal length and weight.

Introduced in November 1993, the Impreza was offered in either front wheel drive (FWD) or all wheel drive (AWD)
versions and as a four-door sedan/saloon or five-door station wagon/estate. According to a Motor Trend article
written March 1992 on page 26, the name of Subaru's new compact was, initially, to be called the Loyale, displaying
an official photograph of the 4-door sedan. In late 1995, a two-door coupe was introduced. The Impreza, like many
Subaru-built cars, was equipped with a flat engine, a distinguishing Subaru characteristic. Initial engine choices
included 1.6, 1.8 and 2.0-litre naturally-aspirated engines as well as the turbocharged and intercooled 2.0-litre
engine. The basic turbocharged motor, the EJ20, produced from 244 PS (179 kW; 241 bhp) to 210 kW (286 PS; 282
bhp) in Japanese market WRX trim depending on model and year. Outside Japan, the turbocharged model was
initially rated at 211 PS (155 kW; 208 bhp) and marketed as the 2.0 Turbo, 2.0 GT, 2.0 GT Turbo, 2.0 WRX, or
Turbo 2000 AWD in the United Kingdom.
Trim levels were LX, GL and Sport. LX models were front-wheel drive, and powered by a 1.6-litre engine; these
were four-door only. GL trim levels were either front-wheel drive (Subaru badged these 2WD) or all-wheel-drive
(badged AWD); cars launched in 1993 had a choice of 1.6 and 1.8 flat-4 engines, the 1.6 being available with 2WD,
the 1.8 an AWD version only. From 1996, the 1.6 and 1.8 versions were dropped (in the European market), and
replaced by a 2.0-litre engine. Sport versions had alloy wheels, and a 2.0-litre engine only. These were "warm hatch"
versions which were similar to the WRX, albeit less adorned.
In 1994, Subaru introduced Subaru Technica International (STi) versions of the Impreza in the Japanese Domestic
Market (JDM) and European Domestic Market (EDM). These models were upgraded from the WRX in many
categories, including blueprinted performance-tuned engines, transmissions, and suspensions. The STi versions of
the Impreza were immensely successful in rallies and popular among street racers. The first STi models featured
Subaru Impreza 3
higher power ratings than the WRX, while later versions of both WRX and STi were rated at 280 PS (206 kW; 276
bhp) due to the Japanese manufacturers' informal agreements around power ratings. Its top speed was electronically
limited at 180 km/h (110 mph) and it had a 0–100 km/h time of 4.9 seconds in the UK Impreza Turbo 218 PS (160
kW; 215 bhp) version. 2006 WRX STI claimed 0 to 100 km/h in 5.4 seconds. RA (Race Altered) versions of the
WRX and STi were also available in the Japanese market. Targeted for race and rally, the RA versions were
generally lighter in weight; featuring reduced soundproofing, manual windows, no air conditioning, and added racing
features such as more robust engines, driver controlled center differentials, and shorter gearing.
Special editions of the Impreza were very common in Japan and Europe, many coinciding with a significant World
Rally Championship victory. These editions included the Series McRae, 555, Catalunya, Terzo, RB5, P1, and 22B,
the latter still considered by many to be the ultimate Impreza of all time with its wide arched rally style body.
During this generation, Subaru made a limited edition Impreza Sport Wagon called the CasaBlanca, which had a
retro front and rear end treatment, which was inspired by the popular kei car Subaru Vivio Bistro styling package
and Subaru Sambar Dias Classic. The Sport Wagon was also offered with the WRX turbocharged engine, and was
called the Gravel Express.
The Impreza received an external facelift for the 1997 model year, followed by an interior redesign in 1998, using
the new redesigned dashboard from the Forester.
The European 1999-2000 turbo model received further upgrades in the form of more parts from the STi range. The
front brakes became Subaru branded 4-pot calipers with 294 mm discs, the wheels having become 16-inch (410 mm)
lightweight alloys from 1998 - previously 15-inch (380 mm), vented rear discs, the Sti 4 high level wing was fitted to
the saloon, Sti style front bucket seats and firmer suspension. The phase 2 engine now fitted developed 160 kW (218
PS; 215 bhp), an increase of 5 kW (7 PS; 7 bhp) over the previous model.
The story of the North American Impreza is much different than the rest of the world. North American markets never
received a turbocharged version of the first generation Impreza (it was heavily rumored in 1998 and 1999). Subaru
never had a performance image in North America, so Subaru initially offered the Impreza with the 1.8L engine only,
with either front- or all-wheel drive; a 2.2-liter engine became optional in 1995. Subaru later decided to emphasize
all-wheel drive, making it standard on every Impreza (and Legacy) from 1997 onwards.
There was a minority that knew of the Impreza's accomplishments overseas and was very interested in having a
high-performance Impreza. To test the waters for a full-fledged turbo model Subaru showcased a turbocharged
version of the Impreza at various car shows around the country. The vehicle was named the 2.5RX and is now
located in Subaru of America's Cherry Hill, NJ storage facility. Subsequently the 2.5RS performance model was
introduced in 1998 (the same year the 1.8-liter engine was dropped). A naturally-aspirated 165 bhp (123 kW; 167
PS) 2.5L DOHC engine and larger brakes, borrowed from the Legacy, were fitted into the coupe body with
gold-colored 16" five-spoke wheels. The 2.5RS also featured several external cues from its overseas brethren such as
hood vents, a hood scoop, and a rally-inspired rear spoiler. The 1999 model featured several changes: the newly
designed "Phase II" SOHC version of the same 2.5L engine featured a slightly higher peak torque (225 N·m (22.9
kgf·m; 166 ft·lbf) vs. 220 N·m (22 kgf·m; 160 ft·lbf)), the wheels turned to a standard silver, the interior got an
update, and US versions became visually similar to their Japanese contemporaries with an updated front bumper
borrowed from the Japanese Version 6 Impreza WRX STi. 2.5RS models became available in sedan form in 2000.

Subaru introduced the "New Age" Impreza to the world market in 2000. The second generation Impreza was
intended to be larger, safer, stiffer, more refined, and more responsive. For many enthusiasts, the changes in the new
car made it less desirable because it was heavier and slower with less of a raw edge to it. The WRX Sedan had a
Subaru Impreza 5
20 mm wider track than its predecessor to aid handling, while the wagon remained the same. The coupe model was
no longer available. The headlamp styling of the New Age Impreza was polarizing, but the improvements to the car
brought greater mainstream acceptance.
For quick and easy reference to the different exteriors, some Subaru Impreza owners use nicknames based on the
headlights. Each relates to a creature that has similar looking eyes: 2002–2003 are 'bug eyes' / 2004–2005 are
'crocodile' or 'blob eyes' / 2006–2007 are 'hawk eyes'.
In the United States, release of the basic 227 bhp (169 kW; 230 PS) 2.0 L turbocharged Impreza, the WRX, did not
occur until the 2002 model year, and the Impreza WRX STi was delayed until the 2004 model year. The US version
of the STi includes various departures from the Japanese and European counterparts, such as a turbocharged 2.5 L
EJ257 engine, rather than the twin scroll turbo 2.0 L engine sold elsewhere. All 2006 American Imprezas use some
form of the 2.5 L EJ25 engine since naturally aspirated and turbo charged are available.
Some customers' and the press' negative reaction to the New Age
Impreza's styling forced Subaru to facelift the car in 2003 for 2004
model year, with more conventional, rectangular headlamps,
nicknamed 'crocodile eyes' (although many still use the 'blob eyes'
nickname). For the US market, the facelifted Impreza was offered as
2.5 RS Sedan and Wagon, 2.5 Outback Sport Wagon, WRX Sedan and
2004 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS Wagon, and the new WRX STi Sedan. Sport Package was optional for
the RS, and the WRX could be ordered with Premium Package. The
RS, Outback Sport, and WRX are available with manual or automatic transmission, while the sole transmission for
the STi is 6 speed manual.
All 2006 Imprezas, including the performance models, have been redesigned again with the controversial "jet intake
and wings" grille first debuted on the Subaru B9 Tribeca crossover SUV, along with new headlights (nicknamed
'hawk eyes'), taillights, and bumpers. Opinion on this style is split, but is generally regarded as better applied on the
Impreza than the Tribeca. The grille design was dropped in the 3rd generation Impreza, due to the restyling. The 2.5
RS was dropped from the line up, and replaced by the base model 2.5i.
The most basic Impreza in Japan is 1.5 i with 1.5 liter EJ15 SOHC engine. The 1.5 R comes with the 1.5 L DOHC
engine with AVCS, but is only available with automatic transmission, whereas the 1.5i model is available with either
automatic or manual transmission. For both models, AWD and 2WD versions are available. Option packages for
either the 1.5i or 1.5R include wheel type, size, bucket seats, and white LED illuminated gauge meters. Starting with
model year 2006, the EJ15 was replaced with the new EL15
In 2005, Subaru made their AVCS standard on all engines used in the Impreza.
For export market, the all-wheel drive 1.6 TS is offered in Singapore and other Asian countries. The 1.5 sedan is
normal body similar to the Sports Wagon. The TS shares wide body with WRX and WRX STI.
Models offered in Australia in 2004 included the GX (2.0 L engine, this model has become the baseline Impreza in
Australia), RV (2.0 L engine, styled for active lifestyles, similar to the USA-spec Impreza Outback Sport), RS (2.5 L
engine, sport model) along with the WRX and STi version thereof. The RX model has been abandoned in Australia,
and its position in the Impreza line-up has been subsumed by the GX (which had formerly been a sparsely outfitted
budget model). A variant of the RS for Australia is the RS-X, which whilst technically not a naturally-aspirated
version of the WRX as is often claimed, does feature many WRX components, including wheels and brakes, in a
package powered by the 2.5 litre drivetrain.
Subaru Impreza 6
In late 2004 a new range was released; including the entry-level 2.0i (formerly GX), RV, 2.0R (formerly RS), WRX
and WRX STi models. The 2.0R changed from a 2.5 L engine to a slightly more powerful 2.0 L engine; while the
turbocharged WRX changed from a 2.0 L engine to a 2.5 L engine. The automatic transmission was dropped from
the WRX, despite the popularity of the sports shift automatic in other Subarus such as the Outback. In 2006 the
automatic transmission was added to the Limited package, which includes heated leather seats, power mirrors,
heated wiper blades and a sunroof. Side airbags were added as standard across the range. Subaru Impreza WRXs
have been bought by French Gendarmerie for its Motorway patrols. At the New York Auto Show, Subaru introduced
a new WRX.

On 2 April 2007, Subaru officially unveiled the next generation
Impreza WRX at the 2007 New York Auto Show. In contrast to its
usual rival, the Mitsubishi Lancer, the Impreza WRX is increasingly
being positioned as a 'practical' performance car - the suspension for
instance is more accommodating of everyday roads.  Similar to the
marketing of the Lancer, Subaru plans to offer a lower volume of
2008–2009 Subaru Impreza R sedan (Australia) slightly upscale, well-equipped, sportier Impreza models, unlike other
contemporaries such as the Honda Civic, Mazda3, and Toyota Corolla
that offer no-frills base trims.  The new Impreza is offered as both a 4-door sedan and 5-door hatchback.
The new base model Impreza is slightly longer, wider and has a longer wheel base. The dashboard in the Impreza is
much more open and is easy to configure. Two Subaru traditions have been ended with the new Impreza: the parking
light switch atop the steering column is no longer present, and for the first time the windows have frames to improve
In the Japanese domestic market the range comprises the 1.5 litre 15S
using the EL15 series engine, the 2.0 litre 20S and the 2.0 litre
turbocharged S-GT using the EJ20 series engine. Variations are found
in other markets around the world: In Australia the range at launch
included three 2.0 litre models (the R, RX and RS) and a 2.5 litre
In the United States market (the US and Canadian markets were the
2008 Subaru Impreza 2.5i hatchback (US)
only ones to receive the sedan until it made its Japanese debut in fall
2008 as 'Impreza Anesis') for the 2008 model year, the model range
consists of the 2.5 liter, 2.5i and Outback Sport and the 2.5 liter turbocharged WRX. Both the 2.5 and the 2.5i are
electronically limited from surpassing 190 km/h (120 mph). The EJ253 engine carries over from the previous
generation to power the 2.5i and the EJ255 engine carries over from the previous generation (although it now uses
many external engine components from the Legacy GT) to power the turbocharged WRX trim levels. In the
Canadian market, the base Impreza 2.5i model received upgrades for the 2009 model year, including rear disc
brakes, electronic stability control and traction control, and body-colored door handles, features previously only
found on the 2.5 Sport and more expensive trims.
From September 2007 the Impreza range in Australia has been changed with models designated R, RX, RS and
WRX. Initially only hatch models were offered. The R, RX and RS all share the same engine - a new 2.0 L, with
110 kW (150 PS; 148 bhp) @ 6400 rpm and 196 Nm @ 3200 rpm. Subaru recommends that the new engines be run
on 95 RON premium unleaded fuel. Another noticeable difference from the Japanese Impreza is the removal of the
"Engine Start" button from the Australian model. The iconic WRX has largely unchanged engine power output of
169 kW (230 PS; 227 bhp) and 320 Nm from its 2.5 L engine. As with previous versions, there will only be a manual
version of the WRX. The weight of the car also has been lightened (by ~50 lbs) to just 1400 kg, and gives the WRX
a 0–100 km/h time of 5.8 seconds. In contrast, curb weight of the standard Impreza model is ~60 lbs heavier,
although still lighter than the WRX trim level.
In Israel, the Impreza is denoted as the B3, and three styles are offered: the B3 1.5, with a 1.5 liter engine, the B3 2.0
and the B3 2.0 Sport, both with 2.0 liter engines. Four-door and five-door models are available for each engine type,
Subaru Impreza 8
ranging from the basic R class, to the medium RX and top RXI class. No 2.5 liter engine option is available.
The third generation Impreza is sold in certain Asian countries in 1.5
R, 2.0 R, 2.0 S-GT, 2.5 WRX, and 2.5 WRX STI trim levels. In
Indonesia, the Impreza is only available as 5 door Hatchback only, but
all trim levels are offered. The 1.5 R and 2.0 R can be ordered with
Dual Range 5 speed manual, or 4 speed automatic SPORTSHIFT
electronically-controlled transmission. However, in Singapore and
Thailand, the Impreza 1.5 R, 2.0 R, and 2.5 WRX are also offered as 4
The latest-generation of the WRX STI which is built as "wide body" Subaru Impreza 2.0 R Hatchback
hatchback only debuted in the Tokyo Auto Show in October 2007. The
release date for a US launch was in March 2008. The WRX STI chassis code is GR, different from the GH used for
the "standard body" hatchback WRX chassis. The Japanese WRX STI is powered by 2.0 liter improved EJ207
engine with twin scroll turbo, while the American and other export models has 2.5 liter EJ257 with single scroll
turbo. The Impreza WRX STI features a Multi-Mode Driver Controlled Centre Differential (DCCD).
A facelifted 2010 model of the Subaru Impreza went on sale in
late 2009, receiving a new grille.
In the 2010 New York International Auto Show, Subaru unveiled
the 2011 model year "wide body" Impreza WRX Sedan and
Hatchback, as well as the Impreza WRX STI 4 door Sedan. The
new STI Sedan features high rear spoiler similar to the old STI.
Safety of the car has been increased with range wide inclusion of 2010 Subaru Impreza sedan (US)
Stability/Traction control as standard in some markets. In early
September 2007, the IIHS crash-tested the 2.5i 5-door Impreza and gave it the highest ranking available due to the
test results the car achieved, continuing Subaru's reputation for producing cars that consistently earn the institutes
The Impreza also achieved a 5 Star Safety Rating, and a 4 Star Pedestrian Safety rating in the ANCAP crash tests.
A boxer diesel engine, called the Subaru EE, for European Impreza models was introduced at the 2008 Paris Motor
Show. The diesel Impreza was made available for sale in several European countries in early 2009, with the 2.0 litre
turbodiesel engine of 150 horsepower. Two models are available as of July 2009, 2.0 TD and 2.0 TD Sport, which is
Subaru uses the Impreza chassis for the mechanical underpinnings of the Forester, a small crossover SUV designed
to compete in the segment comprising the Honda CR-V and Ford Escape.
As a result of GM's investment in Fuji Heavy Industries and ownership of Saab, the badge engineered Saab 9-2X
used the second generation Impreza wagon, released in 2005 (given the rally-derived "Saab Rally Wagon") which
was discontinued in 2006 due to the dissolution of the Subaru-GM partnership.
Subaru sold a cosmetically altered (in the neoclassic style) sedan and wagon in Asia called the Subaru Casa Blanca.

The Impreza chassis has been more successful in rallying than Subaru's
previous contenders. Prior to the introduction of the Impreza into
World Rally Championship racing in 1993, the Subaru World Rally
Team had fielded its larger mid-size Legacy. However, with the rest of
the rally competition increasingly shifting towards smaller and lighter
chassis, Subaru introduced the smaller Impreza, immediately achieving
a podium on its debut on the 1993 1000 Lakes Rally. To jumpstart its
early rally efforts, and to develop the Impreza into a competitive rally
car, Subaru teamed up with its current preporatory firm, British
2006 Impreza Rally Car
motorsports company Prodrive, in 1989.
Immediately following the first overall WRC event win for both the
fledgling Subaru team and its young driver, the late Colin McRae
aboard a Group A Legacy on the 1993 Rally New Zealand, the
Scotman's team-mate and childhood idol, 1981 World Rally
Champion, Ari Vatanen of Finland, went on to finish second in the
debut rally of the first ever factory Impreza. New recruit for the
following season, 1990 and 1992 World Champion, Carlos Sainz
brought the Impreza its inaugural victory on the 1994 Acropolis Rally.
The Impreza brought Subaru three consecutive WRC constructors' Stéphane Sarrazin driving a Subaru Impreza
titles (1995–1997, the latter season the first for the newly introduced WRC on the Monte Carlo Rally
World Rally Car class) and a driver's championship for McRae in
1995, the late Richard Burns in 2001, and the Norwegian, Petter Solberg in 2003.
Another evolution of the Impreza WRC made its debut in the 2007 Corona Rally Mexico. Unfortunately, the team
had several major problems with reliability as the car experienced mechanical difficulties in almost every rally from
Subaru debuted an Impreza WRC in hatchback form for the first time from the 2008 Acropolis Rally onwards, on
which event Solberg scored a second place finish.
On 16 December 2008 Subaru announced that it would withdraw from the World Rally Championship due to
However, the Subaru Rally Team USA is still competing in the Rally America National Championship. Also, there
are still several teams using Subaru models in the Intercontinental Rally Challenge.
In Australia, the 1993-2004 Subaru Impreza was assessed in the Used Car Safety Ratings 2006 as providing
"average" protection for its occupants in the event of a crash.   In frontal-offset and side crash tests
conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety in the United States, the second-generation Impreza earned
"Good" ratings. 2005-2007 models also earned a "Good" rating for rear crash protection (head restraint design)
placing it at the top of IIHS small car ratings.
The third generation MY2008 Impreza continued the tradition and also earned the Insurance Institute for Highway
Safety highest rating for "Good" in each individual test, earning an overall score of "Good".
The third generation MY2008 Impreza hatchback received five stars (34.66 out of 37 points) for occupant protection
and a four star pedestrian rating under testing by ANCAP.
