Subaru Impreza, WRX will not be available in the UK starting next year

Article by Christian A., on December 17, 2012

Subaru’s models -- Impreza and WRX – won’t anymore be available in the UK in the upcoming year. According to Autoexpress, Subaru’s dealerships in the UK will sell down remaining inventory. The new Impreza won’t be brought to the market. This model had recently started selling in Japan and the U.S. to the UK market in 2013.

This isn’t too surprising since the WRX has a niche status when compared to the Subaru Impreza, which has a wider lineup. The WRX is also one generation older than the new Impreza. The C-segment class is one of the biggest in Britain and Europe so the fact that the Impreza isn’t moving forward is a shock.

Subaru said that its focus will be on the XV, Forester and Outback models. It also added the BRZ to its UK range so that it could offer a performance-oriented model.

The XV, which is known as the XV CrossTrek in the U.S., has a close relationship to the Impreza, so Subaru will still have a C-segment sized model in its offerings for the UK market. Another model that may soon be lost is the Legacy D-segment sedan. According to a spokesperson, he can’t say for sure what will happen to the Legacy after 2013.
