2008 Subaru Impreza WRX Sedan…Impresses More than the 5-Door?!

In the past week or so there have been numerous photos of the new WRX 5-door on the internet. It all started with a controversial Motor Trend showing. Since its unveiling the 5-door has received a lot of criticism for its underwhelming styling.

Well now the sedan version has been unveiled. It looks much better than the recent pics of the 5-door version. Maybe it is just the color. The styling of the sedan isn’t revolutionary and rather uninspiring, but at least it is a lot more pleasing to the eye than the 5-door.

The specs for the powertrain have finally been released: The WRX’s 2.5L turbocharged flat-four still features the same 224hp and 226 lb-ft. of torque, but those numbers now arrive earlier on the tach. The base 2.5L has 170hp a 3hp drop, but torque moves up 4 to 170 lb-ft.

Both cars will be shown at the upcoming New York Auto Show.
