Basic Impreza info needed

I'm new to Subaru's I don't even have one yet.
I'm after any basic make and model information, eg: What MK's year ranges are, Power figures, things to look out for when buying, the difference in mports and UK spec's etc.
I was hoping to find a load of sticky threads but haven't.

I'm currently interested in a V reg, Impreza. I know its not an STI or WRX, its just says 2000 Turbo AWD. What Mk is this, and whats the standard power figures?

Any help much apprieciated.

Right then a Turbo 2000 AWD is a uk Classic

All STI and WRXs in the classic shape are imports

2000 onwards the bugeyeyou could buy wrx and stis as uk cars

Thanks guys. Very helpful.
I was thinking for a moment that the non WRX/STI's were An RB5. But then I read there were only 444 of them made.

The non turbo are called SPORT.
The RB5 was built to commemorate Richard Burns WRC title

Thanks. I read about it being a Richard Burns LE.
I've read through all of the links you supplied. The last one doesn't apply as the vehicle I'm currently looking at it damaged any way.
I still haven't found any thing about the MK's. Going on my limtied knowlege, I'm guessing the v reg, which is the same shape as the RB5, is a MKII. Is that correct.
You say the n/a's are called a sport, Is the 2000 Turbo AWD called any other name? I've seen GLX mentioned a few times.

the MK on scoobs is actually a version on classics, then on new age not sure how there labeled tbh lol, you can tell the difference by going on MY which stands for Model year.

A V reg will either be a MY99 spec (version5) or a MY00 (version 6, mine is a version 6 on a V plate) according to when it was regestered.

Classic, version 1 - MY94 (known as pre-facelift)
Classic, version 2 - MY95 (pre-facelift)
Classic, version 3 - MY96 (preface-lift)
Classic, version 4 - MY97 (some are facelift, some not)
Classic, version 5 - MY98- MY99 (Face lift)
Classic, version 6 - MY00- MY01 (face lift)
Bug eye, - MY01- MY02
Blob eye, - MY03- MY05
Hawk eye, - M06 (current model)
