Subaru's performance icon, the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive Impreza WRX STI, will add the choice of a sedan body for the 2011 Model Year, the company has revealed at the New York International Auto Show.

Until now, current generation WRX STI has been available as a hatch-only.

Nick Senior, Managing Director, Subaru Australia, said: "We can confirm a four-door Impreza WRX STI will join our Australian line-up much later in the year and will be available from our exclusive STI retail network."

Mr Senior said further specification and pricing will be announced at launch time.

Subaru's latest turbocharged developments follow the recent news that widebody sedan and hatch versions of the Impreza WRX are also being launched later this year.

The widebody design further distinguishes Subaru's turbo Impreza variants from the normally aspirated versions.


Every Subaru sold in Australia features Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and a horizontally opposed Boxer engine, standard Vehicle Dynamics Control electronic stability program, and a five-star rating for occupant safety from the independent Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP). The result - driving confidence
