Rally and sports car specialist Prodrive will turn its tuning talents once again to Subaru's Impreza range next year.
The hottest version of the new Impreza, the WRX STi, is due to arrive next March with 297bhp under its bonnet. Prodrive's performance pack should add around another 100bhp to that.
Like previous Prodrive Impreza specials, the upgrades are carried out in the UK after the car has been registered, yet it still benefits from Subaru's own three-year warranty.
Prodrive is also working on a range of performance accessories for the new Impreza, including upgraded brakes.
Unlike the old model, the new Impreza is only available as a five-door hatchback. It's part of Subaru's plans for the car to be seen as a more usable alternative to budget performance cars.
However, at £25,000, the new STi will cost less than the outgoing model and feature more kit.
At the other end of the Subaru scale, whispers have reached us that next year's new Justy supermini, based on the excellent Daihatsu Sirion, will be the first Subaru to come with a five-year warranty.
