New Impreza WRX and STIs to be limited

29 August 2007

Motorists hoping to get their hands on the new Subaru Impreza WRX or STI models will have to move fast, as both will be limited-edition cars in the UK.

The 227bhp 2.5-litre Impreza WRX will go on sale in the UK in November, but only between 350 and 400 models will be initially available. No prices have been released.

Subaru has confirmed it will limit sales to 1000 cars per year from 2008.

Details of the WRX STI also remain under wraps ahead of its spring 2008 launch, but Subaru has also confirmed that just 1500 models will be made available annually.

New Legacy
Sources have also confirmed that an all-new Subaru Legacy will be launched at the end of 2009.

The revamped car will be considerably bigger than the current car, sparking speculation that there will be an Impreza Sports Wagon to fill the gap left in Subaru's range.

A Subaru spokesman refused to confirm or deny any plans to build an Impreza Sports Wagon.
