In 2007 Subaru revealed the third generation Impreza at the New York Auto Show based on a completely new body shape and floor pan.
Initially, the new Impreza was offered as a five-door hatchback with the four-door sedan introduced in 2008. We also witnessed the discontinuation of the wagon. Dimensionally, this version is wider by 55mm and an increased track by approximately 38mm. Although first adopted by the STI, the wide-body platform was later utilized by the standard WRX range as well.
