Since the introduction of the third-generation Impreza, there are many talking point between fast cars lovers. In countries like USA and Australia which selling WRX like hot cakes, Subaru makes Impreza WRX sedan available besides the 5-door hatchback.

Personally, I prefer the 5-door hatchback model over the sedan model after my long period of digestion. Partially could be due to Ken Block’s influential.

Now, the 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX adopted the STI’s widebody design for 2011 model to enhanced handling performance. With a 1.5 inch-wider track front and rear, the 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX’s are more aggressive, and with firmer rear subframe bushings pulled from the STI and wider 17×8-inch wheels wrapped in 235/45R17 low profile tyres, the 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX is assuredly stickier than its predecessor.

Besides the widebody fenders, the front bumper receives a restylized front lip with a larger front grille and intakes. The whole package only increases the curb weight of the WRX by 34 pounds, and coupled with the 265hp turbocharged 2.5-liter flat-4 Boxer engine teamed with a 5-speed manual transmission. This highly responsive engine produces 244 lb.-ft. of peak torque at 4,000 rpm.

The 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX will be preview in 2010 New York Auto Show. Meantime, check out the photo gallery to ease the thirst first.
