What’s the most Subaru car in the back catalogue?

The standard Subaru Impreza, when it first arrived on UK shores way back in 1993, was quite dull if we’re being honest. Based on a chopped down version of the Legacy’s platform, the Japanese carmaker had rallying in mind when it was developing the car, though you wouldn’t have known it at first. This was the car that rallying was supposed to sell. The boring version of the car even came in front-wheel-drive flavour, but that was swiftly dropped in favour of just selling the cooler AWD model.

The legend began in 1994 with the Impreza Turbo 2000 AWD. British outfit Prodrive had been enlisted by Subaru’s sporting division, STI, to help it crack the WRC, and that extended to a few choice improvements to the road car.
