Subaru Justy & Impreza WRX to be dropped (UK)

Subaru is to axe its Impreza WRX, Justy supermini and its two-wheel-drive technology in a bid to stick to what it believes is its core values.

The Japanese car manufacture will now run down its stocks of two-wheel-drive cars and its deleted models that are expected to run out in Spring 2010. From then on, Subaru will be selling the STi only and in a bid to stick to what it does best will be producing more hardcore performance cars with power outputs of 350bhp and more.

The company says it will be working alongside Prodrive to offer more high-performing Impreza models along the lines of the fire-breathing STi 330S. The Impreza diesel is already in the showrooms but Subaru expects to produce an oil-burner with greater power outputs in the future. A twin-turbo diesel is expected but Subaru wants to see how well the existing diesel performs before introducing a twin-turbo.
