The 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX STI

For 2008, a new hatchback model will join the Impreza lineup, a reaction to the recent comeback by this configuration as seen in trendy examples like the Audi A3 and Mazda speed 3 five-door. We hear there's a new multi-link independent rear suspension under both the hatchback and the sedan.

The 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX STI will be a hatchback, just like the 2007 Subaru WRC rally car. The intercooled and turbocharged, 2.0-liter flat-four engine will produce 300 horsepower, although the engineers have spent more effort on improving power at low- and mid-range rpm.
That this new version has a lot to do with the arrival of its bigger challenger the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X and its impressively aggressive look, but at the same time it is Subaru's tradition to take the Impreza to the top of the technology.
