Profile

If we thought that the second gen Sti was no looker, then no-one was quite prepared for the hideous restyling of the 2007 third generation. The familiar 4-door saloon was still there, but the estate version was replaced with a 5-door hatchback with questionable design.

Engine capacity was up to 2.5 litres (except in Japan, where the 2 litre was retained), with an accompanying increase in power to around 300bhp. Unfortunately weight also increased to almost 3400 lbs.

This generation STi did howver feature a raft of technological features such as electronic stability control, Subaru Intelligent Drive and a driver adjustable LSD known as DCCD.

As with all Imprezas, the 3rd gen spawned many limited edition variants, cumulating in the 400hp Cosworth CS400.

Sadly, Subaru's efforts to broaden the appeal and everyday usability of the Impreza backfired. The raw, rally bred appeal of the previous generations had been lost, and with it the customers!
