The leather packed Impreza R is a proper limited edition with only 1,000 headed to Australia (arriving in April). The choices will include five-speed manual or four-speed automatic available in both sedan and hatch body-types.

The standard Subaru Impreza R will drop in price by $1,000, making it $23,990. The leather equipped models attract a premium of just $500, retailing for $24,490 for the manual.
