When the Subaru Leone -- known in the US as, for instance, Subaru RX -- disappeared in the early mid-1990s, a compact car succeeded it that would become a favorite among drivers five generations and counting. That car was the Subaru Impreza, and as soon as it went on sale in 1992, its popular variants would spread throughout the segment.
You may know today's four-door sedan and five-door hatchback duo best. However, Impreza was also a sports car in WRX and WRX STI variants as early as 1992. There was even an Impreza WRX STI Special Edition released as recently as 2010. That's not to mention that the first generation offered a limited-edition Impreza Sports Wagon, too, called Casa Blanca. Impreza ran as a coupe from 1995 to 2001, and variants of the lineup were active all over motorsports throughout the 90s and 2000s. The car would even spin off crossovers like Subaru XV and XV Crosstrek around 2015.
There'd be many milestones throughout its history, too. During the 1997 model year, the brand's legendary Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system was made standard. After an interior redesign in 1998, a high-performance 2.5RS model was introduced. A redesigned engine appeared in 1999. By the fifth generation, which came out in 2016, the car would be fully fledged, built on the new Subaru Global Platform and offering the sought-after EyeSight driver-assistance system.
Today, in trims ranging from base and Premium to Sport and Limited, Impreza is beloved of Subaru enthusiasts everywhere. Just consider its accolades. The second generation, for instance, earned Best Sport Sedan and Best Performance Car standings at the MotorWeek Drivers' Choice Awards, in 2002 and 2004, respectively. Ratings from the IIHS and NHTSA for safety are top-notch, and other honors over the years have come from ALG, Kelley Blue Book, and more.
