2008 Subaru Impreza S-GT & 15S JDM details

Carscoop Jdmimpreza 0

We don’t know if this will make European and American Scooby fans feel a little bit better or not, but from the looks of it, the JDM (Japan Domestic Market) version of the WRX will loose the "WRX" nameplate in favour of the uninspiring and meaningless "S-GT". As you can see from the images that where posted on NASIOC, apart from the 7.500 rpm redline (US WRX: 6.500 rpm) and the 180km/h tachometer, there’s no other visible difference between the US spec WRX and the JDM S-GT.

2006 Subaru Legacy GT Limited sedan reviewed - again


Subaru has been moving upscale with its vehicles for a half dozen years or so and its new Legacy GT Limited sedan shows how far it has come. This is a stealthy sport sedan that is attractive, yet blends into the crowd, especially when cloaked in the dark metallic blue of the test car. Overall, the Legacy GT is quick and well mannered on the road while also offering fairly sporty handling. Add to that its all-wheel drive and a base price just below $29,000 and it's a bargain in the near luxury market.

Impreza WRX gets Prodrive punch

Impreza Prodrive

Prodrive says its version of the 2.5-litre, turbocharged boxer engine delivers 185kW and 360Nm, the standard engine 169kW and 320Nm. Subaru SA says the car will sprint from 0-100km/h in 5.7sec and top out at an electronically limited 210km/h.

A special Prodrive boot spoiler with four swept-back vertical surfaces adds to the boy-racer persona but the only visual indication in the engine bay is the blue Prodrive turbocharger plumbing. The only cabin styling cue is a polished aluminium Prodrive gear-shifter.

2006 Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT Limited reviewed

Legacy Gt 2006

The good: The 2006 Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT Limited disguises a sophisticated all-wheel-drive turbo drivetrain in a useful and nondescript body, with decent fuel economy and a well-done if simple interior rounding out the picture.

The bad: Interior tech features are scarce for the price, and Bluetooth and satellite radio aren't available. The navigation option curiously requires the automatic transmission.

The bottom line: The 2006 Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT Limited offers more performance than most cars in its class, but this comes at the expense of cabin gadgetry.
