It has been a whole 15 years since the first Subaru Impreza WRX appeared in the UK and the carmaker has taken an unusual step to shift a few of the latest version.

While desperately trying to avoid a 'the car may have changed but the price hasn't' cliché the News is that Subaru has given the new WRX a 1994 price tag. It will cost the same £17,998 that the original did when it went on Sale. This means a saving of £2,100 on the list price.

Considering the car gets a 230bhp 2.5-litre boxer engine, with 236lb ft of torque, power-to-pound it is very good value. Incidentally a price tag of 18,000 pounds was seen as good value for the original 208bhp WRX in the early nineties. The question is whether the price drop will be enough to tempt those who have rejected the new car's hatchback styling.

Lawrence Good, managing director of Subaru UK, said: 'This is the last opportunity for Subaru WRX fans to buy into the latest, best Impreza WRX Turbo model - at a price they were 15 years ago! It is one of our best dealer offers in our History - ideal in these lean times.'



The Jap STi had 280bhp and a 2.0 engine - fifteen years of evolution, bigger engine, but less power think

...good to see the price drop though happy
