There’s a new buzz about the new Subaru Impreza WRX. Well, it still possesses the same power with a roomier interior and a lighter body. Moreover, it still runs up to 60 mph in a matter of 5.9 seconds. Experts could bear out the fact that such mishmash is truly rare.

Now, each of the new models weighs more than their previous models. This is because the car manufacturers are keep on adding power to compensate. But not the Japanese automaker who made exactly the opposite. The new WRX is a little bit slower in the quarter-mile than the vehicle it replaces, 14.5 seconds at 94.4 mph compared to the 14.3 seconds at 95.5 mph. The car’s chassis setup, according to those who tested the car, is also noticeably softer and there is no body roll shortage.

On the paper, it seems as if the WRX really has not changed, however the WRX we have loved for its “finger-in-the-air attitude” is gone, it was eventually replaced by the WRX with its finger on the pulse of the mainstream market, this is according to Josh Jacquot-the Senior Road Test Editor at Edmunds, an auto shopper’s online guide.

In the past year, the 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX has received shortage of coverage, but after the rumors and all the hype, everyone wants to know how this new AWD beast machine performs. The Inside Line folks have recently took the 2008 Subaru WRX for a series of track tests, including the slalom and stopping distance tests, and in the end, they determined that the WRX has ‘gone soft,’” said Michael Kwan of Mobile Magazine.

With a price of $30, 000, this killa’ street machine makes it more controversial. although the new WRX five-door hatchback may look like a family car, it will undoubtedly exceed any production Corolla or Camry and that is according to the critics.

The Japanese carmaker has officially uncovered the next generation Impreza WRX at the 2007 New York Auto Show. After that, its appeal has fascinated the crowd. And the magnetism’s blaze, illuminating as Subaru Headlights which induces what is forthcoming. Produced for the 2008 model, the new Impreza is presented as both a four-door sedan and five-door hatchback. The cool feature of this fly ride was predicted to pull a lot of customers.

Unluckily, not all of the aficionados find it hard to love the new “soft” Subaru. “We have had a soft spot in our heart for Subarus for many, many years. In the late 70’s a move to bucolic Bradford, N.H., brought a Brat into our driveway. We figured with winter coming on we needed more than two-wheel drive to make it down our narrow and winding road to work on a winter’s morning,” said Ron Amadon of MarketWatch. “Over 88,000 miles, we had more fun with that little truck than we could have ever imagined at the outset. It was rock solid reliable, sounded like a tractor, and took us everywhere that we wanted to go. What it lacked was much acceleration and some sporty handling.”

However, despite of these statements, there are still other good reasons why one should love this car. The brand’s considerable experience with the road rallies came into play here with a neat 2.5-liter, DOHC intercooled turbo four under the hood can also be one of the reasons.
The car was said that it possess great amount of speed which gives the Suby its character. And such would probably be enough to give everyone to imagine it.

“The sounds the car makes getting up to speed are just great and give the Suby its character. Subaru’s ‘Symmetrical All Wheel Drive’ system ensures that the precise amount of power goes to the proper wheels and eliminates any torque steer. Hence, this car was made to make your daily “road life” easier.
