Subaru piles kit on Impreza WRX
3 April 2006

Subaru is throwing over £3000 of extras onto a special edition of the Impreza WRX saloon - but only until the end of June.

The 2.5 WRX Type UK is available as a saloon only. It includes five years or 50,000 miles of free servicing, a five-year/100,000-mile extended warranty, a theft-tracking system with satellite navigation and touch screen, a Bluetooth hands-free phone kit and five years' roadside recovery. Subaru says the extras add up to £3,635 of extra value.

Mechanically, the car is a regular 2.5-litre turbocharged WRX. It accelerates to 60mph in 5.4sec and will hit a maximum of 143mph. The WRX Type UK costs £20,945 on the road and is on sale until 30 June.
