Following the launch of the Impreza R, RX and RS sedans, Subaru will launch the WRX variant of the popular model at the Sydney motor show next week.
With the current turbocharged WRX hatch gathering attention of a different kind, with some Subaru fans still not satisfied, the sedan could be a step in the right direciton.
Impreza WRX sedan will feature a wide variety of mechanical changes. It will, of course, maintain our standard of five-star crashworthiness ratings for occupant safety and standard electronic stability control.” Nick Senior, Managing Director, Subaru Australia, said.
Previous reports have indicated the MY09 versions of the WRX sedan and hatch will have over 190kW of power and an upgraded suspension to properly take on the Lancer Ralliart, which will also be launched the motor show next week.
“New generation Impreza has proved a sales winner since its introduction last year, with sales up 12.5 per cent.This final addition to the range will expand its appeal still further.” Mr Senior said
Pricing and specification details are still unconfirmed but all will be revealed in Sydney on Thursday 9 October.
The new MY09 WRX sedan and hatch will go on sale around December.
If Subaru has upped the power to 190kW as widely expected, would it change your opinion of the car?
