2008 Subaru WRX Unveiled at Motor Image, Singapore! (Photos)
Here it is folks! The nemesis to the Mitsubishi Lancer, the 2008, Subaru Impreza, now based on the platform of the Legacy. Associated corporate members of Subaru and the media were treated to a cordial unveiling of the Impreza S-GT (which is to replace the WRX in the Japanese Domestic Market)

Unfortunately, we were not able to get good shots of the S-GT as overcrowding was the order of the evening, with everyone excited to see the new car.


Yes, that is the one and only Arai sandwiched in between Cody and Glenn (Rifat Ali on the extreme left)







The interior is a marked improvement, where you will find a nice, big boot and driving position that is much more comfortable thanks to telescopic steering adjustment.

The "less than bucket" seats were kind of a disappointment though, while the gearshift feel appears to be unchanged from the previous model.

The S-GT that we previewed also came with 18 inch STI wheels with 225/45 Falken 522 tyres wrapped around them, with slightly bigger, or same size brake rotors at the current model. The 2-pot front/1 pot rear arrangement remains.

The S-GT is claimed to be over 100 kilograms lighter than the current standard model WRX.








Motor Image has yet to finalize their price list. A good estimate indicates that the S-GT, which will come with the existing 2.5 litre turbocharged boxer four that will yield peak power and a flatter torque curve 500-800rpm lower in the rev range, will retail for just a little more over the current standard WRX manual.

There will also be plans to introduce the 2.0 litre turbo automatic in the later part of 2008. Sales for the S-GT will start from October.
