What’s New for ’08

  • All Impreza models ride on a new, wider and longer platform with revised suspension, including an all-new double-wishbone setup in the rear, that results in improved handling as well as lower noise, vibration and harshness levels.
  • The naturally aspirated engine features new intake ports and catalyst system, while the turbocharged engine receives a new intake manifold, turbocharger and intercooler, improving the output and reducing emissions levels for both engines.
  • New, standard safety equipment for all models includes stability control, front, side-impact and side-curtain airbags, seat belt pretensioners, anti-lock brakes, and active head restraints (not available with optional WRX sport seats).
  • A stability-control “off” button allows the driver to de-activate traction control.
  • A navigation system and Bluetooth hands-free cell-phone connectivity are optional.
