Question

So even if there non-turbo models they still call them WRX's? I thought the non-turbo would just be called a regular Impreza. I thought that's how it was in japan.

The wagon is a Turbo model = WRX, the one below is the RX, a European model with 2.0L engine and 125hp or in Japan with 150hp (dohc).

Ah HA! Four piston calipers, just like I suspected. I hope we get these instead of the two piston that were on all the show cars.

Mmmm big brakes

The OZ turbo is going to be detuned somewhat, but nobody knows how much yet. No numbers have been published.

I don't really like the new design that much and I'm not big on wagons, but I have to admit, that's the sweetest looking wagon I've seen.

A 4-door will probably go for somewhere over $40,000, ex options. The old WRX 4-door was around $38,000; I imagine there will be a premium for the new one. A loaded 5-door will be at least $45,000.
