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