Subaru Impreza WRX STi hatchback

Description

The third generation of the Impreza was launched in 2007, and was available in both 5 door hatchback and 4 door sedan bodystyles.

For the first time even, the top of the range Subaru Impreza WRX STi was offered as a five door hot hatchback alongside the sedan. The car was fitted with a turbocharged 2.5 liter boxer engine (EJ257), producing 300 hp / 221 kW of power and 407 Nm of torque. A six speed manual transmission sent the power to all four wheels with the help of a center and rear differential. The car accelerated from 0-100 km/h in 5,2 seconds and could reach a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).

Visually, the WRX STi featured a noticeably wider body kit than the rest of the range, including flared wheel arches to cover the wider tracks, redesigned bumpers with larger air intakes, extended side sills, 18 inch alloy wheels with 245/40R18 tires, a large bonnet scoop, a more prominent rear wing and quadruple exhaust pipes. Inside we found leather upholstery, STI badge on the steering wheel and the centrer console, aluminium pedals, navigation, optional Recaro seats and optional electric sunroof.

The car was facelifted in 2010 with a new front bumper and improved suspension. The hatchback STI was phased out in 2014, and did not have a direct successor, as the fourth generation Impreza was only available as a four door sedan.
