Subaru in the UK is offering free performance upgrades for its iconic Impreza WRX and STI Type-UK, raising power to 265 and 305 bhp respectively.

The deal covers the three-month period of May, June and July or while stocks last and is worth 1,995 for the STI and 1,600 on the WRX.

The Prodrive-developed Performance Packs are fitted by the dealer after registration and carry the full Subaru three year/60,000 mile warranty.

It means the Impreza WRX STI Type-UK sees its power rise to 305 bhp and torque leap from 253 lb-ft to 299 lb-ft resulting in a 0-60 mph time of 4.6 seconds and
0-100 mph in 12.2 seconds. Top speed is in excess of 155 mph.

Meanwhile, the standard WRX available in both saloon and 5-door bodystyles now has 265 bhp and 257 lb-ft of torque. The 0-60 mph time is reduced from an already rapid 5.6 seconds to 4.8 seconds with 100 mph coming up in 14.1 seconds instead of 15.9 seconds.

Both Prodrive Performance Packs include a reprogrammed Electronic Control Unit (ECU) and free-flow exhaust system with a large single rear tailpipe.

The Impreza WRX saloon costs 20,300 with the 5-door at 20,800 while the WRX STI Type-UK is 26,400 (all prices On-The-Road).
