Unlike the rally-race-inspired WRX and WRX STI, regular-strength Imprezas were intended for less strenuous duty. First-generation models arrived for the 1993 model year and were available in coupe, sedan and wagon variations. The lineup was revamped for 2002, at which point all-wheel-drive became standard and the coupe was dropped. Impreza was also revamped for the 2008 and 2012 model years.
