Subaru Impreza WRX Model Years

Overview

Research by Year
, Automotive Editor -

The Subaru Impreza has been around since 1993, usually flying under the radar, but earning an underground following and industry acclaim as a highly successful rally car. A high-performance variant -- the WRX -- had existed for some time in foreign markets, but only made it to the United States in the early 2000s.

With refined steering, a sport-tuned suspension, agile handling and rip-roaring engine performance, the current WRX has become a class standard.
