Re: New Impreza??

Is interesting. I quite like the idea of a a smaller more hardcore WRX. Makes more sense in these times of austerity than the current overweight, thirsty model and at least Subaru haven't followed Mitsubishi's lead and pulled out of the performance car sector altogether. And it does bode well for a return to WRC.

Re: New Impreza??

thats very very interesting, the artist imporession looks liek a fudge cupra to me, but the engine choice is the interesting bit.

isn't it in line with the future wrc rule changes?

possible subaru returning to wrc maybe?
