Here’s What Made The Bug Eye Subaru Impreza So Awesome

Having been the poster-child for rally success in the nineties, the Impreza had, mainly through win-after-win at the hands of rally legend Colin McRae, carved out a dedicated, and very loyal, fan base. Due to this, Subaru found itself in a position where it couldn’t build its four-wheel-drive turbocharged road car fast enough, and many main dealer outlets would report back that demand vastly outstripped supply. In fact, at one point, the Impreza counted for 25% of all new car sales in the United Kingdom, where the car had become something of a must-have item by performance car fans.
