Subaru of America, Inc. (SOA), a pioneer of crossover all-wheel drive vehicles designed for the active lifestyle, announced today the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of the exciting 2001 Impreza models. For the '01 model year, Impreza models continue to offer tremendous value and performance, combined with the confidence and control of the Subaru All-Wheel Driving System.

Subaru Impreza:

Subaru Impreza is recognized around the globe as one of the most familiar names in the World Rally Championship (WRC) series. In fact, the Impreza World Rally Car won the World Rally Manufacturer's Championship an unprecedented three years in a row (1995, 1996 and 1997). In 1999, Subaru won more events than any other team.

In poor weather, full-time all-wheel drive gives Impreza traction that's superior to the front or rear-wheel drive systems found on the competition. On dry roads, all-wheel drive and the long-travel four-wheel independent suspension provides Impreza with a measure of driving excitement unexpected in this competitive segment. In fact, the Subaru Impreza L models are the least-expensive AWD passenger cars available in the U.S. (based on MSRP of all all-wheel drive passenger cars sold in the U.S.).

Impreza L:

For the 2001 model year, Impreza L models feature the 2.2-liter, 142 hp SOHC boxer engine. Available in coupe, sedan and sport wagon models, the 2001 Impreza L continues to offer all of the same popular features and equipment included in the 2000 model year. All 2001MY Impreza L models come standard with a 5-speed manual transmission and have an MSRP price increase of just $100.

Impreza 2.5 RS:

The 2001MY Impreza 2.5 RS coupe and sedan models bring a rally-winning heritage to the street with an impressive array of standard features. The hot-selling Impreza RS models feature a 2.5-liter, 165 hp SOHC boxer engine, full-time all-wheel drive, sport-tuned suspension, and a viscous limited-slip rear differential. For the '01 model year, all Impreza 2.5 RS models feature a standard single disc CD player, 2.5 RS embroidered floor mats, carbon fiber patterned interior trim and a standard 5-speed manual transmission. This enhanced level of standard equipment increases the value of 2.5 RS models significantly more than the MSRP increase of only $200.

Impreza Outback Sport:

For the 2001 model year, Impreza Outback Sport models feature the 2.2-liter, 142 hp SOHC boxer engine, full-time all-wheel drive and a 4-channel, 4-sensor Anti-Lock Braking System. Impreza Outback Sport comes equipped with a standard 5-speed manual transmission. Impreza Outback Sport has an MSRP increase of just $100.

All 2001MY Subaru vehicles comply with Low Emission Vehicle (LEV)
standards and are certified for sale in all 50 states. Additionally, all 2001 model feature the peace of mind of standard 24-hour roadside assistance coverage for 3 years or 36,000 miles.
