2008 Subaru Impreza WRX
The standard Impreza 2.5i and the WRX are on an all-new platform with a 3.7-inch-longer wheelbase. The front subframe is gone, allowing Subaru to mount the engine 10 mm lower than in the old model. An unequal-length control arm suspension replaces the multilink in back, in part to reduce the wheelwell intrusion and buy more trunk space.Or hatch space. The WRX hereby becomes a five-door hatchback worldwide. You'll be able to buy a 2008 WRX sedan, based on the new Impreza four-door, as long as you buy it in North America, a concession to lingering distaste here toward hatchbacks. The STI will be available globally only as a five-door hatchback when it goes on sale next year.
