Subaru Impreza WRX History

In 1992 Subaru introduced the Impreza WRX, a turbocharged version of the Subaru Impreza. First available in Japan the WRX made its way onto the showrooms of Europe, New Zealand and Australia. It wasn't until 2001 as a 2002 model year that North America got a taste of the Subaru WRX's style and speed.

The word Impreza, a derivative of an Italian word which means "achievement," has certainly attained worldwide superstar status both on the racetrack and on the streets. While only minor cosmetic changes have occurred over the years, huge steps have been taken to make the WRX both faster and more powerful. Originally coming out with a 2.0L then later a 2.5L Subaru's EJ series flat-4 Boxer engine.

Although the WRX took ten years to make it to the U.S, the Subaru Impreza WRX won the 2006-2007 Golden Icon Award for "best sedan" on the market, a great achievement for any car.
