Subaru Canada Announces Pricing for 2009 Impreza Lineup

Better equipped, and one of the safest vehicles in its class, new pricing also makes Impreza an exceptional value.

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire – Aug. 29, 2008) - Subaru Canada, Inc. today announced pricing for its 2009 lineup of Impreza performance sedans and 5-door models. With a range of new standard features across the model lineup, a new performance model - the WRX265, and pricing that's as competitive as Impreza's rally-bred performance, every vehicle in the 2009 Impreza lineup is a lot of car for the money.

Impreza is also the first and only vehicle ever to be named a Top Safety Pick in the Small Car category by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). In order to be named a Top Pick, vehicles must be equipped with electronic stability control, which is now standard on every Impreza.

For 2009, there are enhancements to every Impreza in the lineup. All prices are for 4-door models with manual transmissions, unless otherwise noted.



- The affordable performance of the Impreza 2.5i re-defines the concept
of "entry level." New standard equipment includes 4-wheel disc
brakes, Subaru's Vehicle Dynamics Control electronic stability
system, an auxiliary input jack and body-coloured door handles. The
Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of the well-equipped
Impreza 2.5i is $20,995.

- The 2.5i may be further equipped with a Sport Package that adds a
power tilt-and-slide moonroof; Sirius satellite radio, plus a 3-month
trial subscription; and, for the sedan, a body kit, spoiler and
exhaust tips. The MSRP of the Impreza 2.5i with the Sport Package is
$24,695.

- Subaru offers a choice of two turbocharged Impreza WRX models for
2009:

- The new entry level Impreza WRX with 224 hp is $30,995, which is
$2,000 less than last year.

- Pricing for the new Impreza WRX265, with a more powerful 265 hp
engine, new performance suspension, moonroof and much more is
priced at $33,995.

- The flagship of the Impreza lineup-the turbocharged WRX STI-is
offered solely in the 5-door bodystyle with a 6-speed manual
transmission. For 2009, the WRX STI, with unique new gunmetal-
coloured alloy wheels, is now available from $39,995. The new Impreza
WRX STI Sport Tech Package, with moonroof, BBS wheels, navigation
system and Bluetooth has an MSRP of $45,995.
