2008 Impreza WRX review

"Subaru are currently working at the successor for the Impreza WRX. Spy photographers caught several test vehicles. It appears that the new vehicle will be a hatchback and the overall design is inspired by that of the B5-THP concept car. By making the Impreza a hatchback, Subaru will throw the WRX STI against cars like the Volkswagen Golf GTI, Opel Astra OPC or Ford Focus ST....."

This is from an exclusive review on the 2008 new Impreza WRX model from Subaru. You can find info about it's features, history and competition it may face, and also view a photo gallery with the concept car.

Thanks for that!

Think this is the reality of the wrx - A complete new look --- Honda Civic have reported massive increase in sales and even upping production to cope with demand.. Maybe subaru going down the same route. Keeping the STI similar in nature to what we all see around today... Changing the WRX to appeal to a wider audience. ?

Thanks for posting up

I cant see subaru changing much from the rally car market much ie the impreza, because its such a big buisness for them. There whole advertising is based on the fact that your getting a car thats designed for rallying. Just think how much money they must make on the merchandise alone.
If in Doubt Flat Out

I do like the look of the new saloons I will admit... Although I do like the look of the hatch in the second pic... Wonder if they are considering a 2 door come back?
