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.

The latest fourth generation Subaru Impreza 2012 version debuts a more dynamic and bolder design as well as new engines at the New York International Auto Show of 2011. It offers an interior space which is bigger like never before, improved handling agility as well as enhanced refinement.

New features for its interior are also added like the high-end infotainment technology, superior quality interior materials which guarantee a worthwhile driving and satisfying ownership experience for its 2012 customers.

For its UK market, this new version is equipped with a new Boxer engine of 1.6 liters as well as a second generation Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) and five-speed manual transmission. Every Impreza unit also features the latest Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, the brand’s priceless performance as well as enhanced safety measure systems.

With its long wheelbase yet short overhangs, the latest Subaru Impreza offers a spatial interior with external footprints similar to the previous model. Its new and improved passenger cabin yields not only more space, but also a crucially great feeling of capaciousness and enhanced visibility.

Functionality Also Enhanced with Bold Design Statements

This latest version of Subaru Impreza also conveys an audacious more confident look which emphasizes the car’s sporty heredity and its customary All-Wheel Drive system. This 2012 version draws more focus to the car’s wheels with its powerful arches and an all new motif that made its debut during the historical 2010 Subaru Legacy.
