Performance hatchback buyers can also get a free Prodrive Performance pack worth £3200

Subaru has cut the price of its Impreza WRX by £680 to and is also offering a free Prodrive Performance pack to potential buyers.

Now starting from £18,995, the Impreza WRX gets the £3200 performance pack as standard for no extra cost. The pack adds a reconfigured ECU and high-flow sports exhaust pack to enhance the performance of the Impreza. It also adds new 18-Inch alloy wheels and new tyres.

The Prodrive Performance pack improves the WRX's 0-62mph of 6.5sec to 5.9sec. The STI Type UK, which also benefits from the free pack upgrade, has 0.4sec shaved off its 0-62mph time of 5.2sec.

Kenyon Neads, Subaru UK marketing director, said: "The WRX and STI are performance-car icons with a seriously loyal following and we hope that the prospect of these free upgrades will broaden their appeal still further."

The offer will run until the end of June.

It may not be an obvious choice for most buyers, but this four-wheel-drive, sub-£20k hatch does have merit

It's not the price or the performance that's the problem with the Impreza. The problems are ugly styling, cheap interior and high CO2 emissions.

That's more like it! I got a 5 door WRX in 2005 the last time they offered the PPP for free and absolutely loved it. Enough space to get the family in, acceptable economy and fast enough to lose almost anything else on the road, on the straight or the bendy bits.

This one's still growing on me (the '05 wasn't a looker either), but at this price they should finally start selling in decent numbers.

According to the Prodrive document for the performance pack on the 03 Impreza WRX I used to own it's 0-60 was 5.5 seconds, and this was reduced to 4.8 with the performance pack.

The current WRX desperately needs the extra grunt the PPP offers! But don't forget to change the suspension so that it can go round corners like it's on rails.

£ 19k with the performance and 18" wheels does sound much better. If the STi had this when I test drove it (after it was released) I'd have bought it. As it was, I was left feeling that the STi just wasn't good enough and certainly not enough to put up with the handbrake sticking in my leg!
