It's hard to believe we are on the precipice of the Subaru WRX's 30th birthday. This model has transcended generations and is reliable, fun to drive, and isn't afraid to roll up its figurative sleeves and get dirty. Finished in Light Silver Metallic (406), and featuring some tasty OEM aero, the body is in good shape aside from some minor dings, chips, and scratches associated with normal use. Offered with a mere 21k verified and documented miles, this sports sedan was cared for in a previous life in Japan and is turn-key ready to go! Fresh off a recent service, this federally legally rally rocket would make an ideal daily commuter, weekend play toy, or unmolested platform to tune. Practical, collectible, and capable this 1994 Impreza is a certified Japanese Classic. 

The cabin is in above average condition and includes plenty of power equipment too. When entering the cockpit, the driver's eyes are immediately drawn to the OEM Nardi Steering wheel, mounted on an adjustable column. This wonderful leather-wrapped unit adds some sportiness to the cabin alongside the stellar front bucket seats. The upholstery is highly stylized, with red accents and agressive side bolsters to keep you secure in the twisties. The material lacks any major rips stains or tears and is still soft to the touch. As the WRX was intended for year-round use we wanted to note the heat is piping hot and the A/C works too. Directly below is the functional OEM radio/cd player, although we did want to note the LCD display is on its last legs. Power windows, door locks, and mirrors make daily use more convenient and work as they should. The door cards, carpets, and headliner all have held up well to abuse over the years and look just fine. We did want to note some discoloration on the dash and that the driver's side sun visor has some busted stitchwork. Still, at 25 years old the condition is remarkable and even the OEM books are still in the glovebox. 

Symmetrical AWD and a turbocharged four-banger are a match made in heaven. The EJ20G is fresh off a recent oil and filter service and starts up promptly with the twist of the key. A new 12v battery was installed here stateside and while the Subie was up in the air, we replaced the serpentine belts and added a new engine air filter. The 2.0L idles confidently and the boxer growl is subtle but noticeable, especially under heavy throttle. Acceleration is impressive and the EJ pulls hard to redline. Torque is fed through a slick-shifting automatic gearbox, and the gear ratios are well suited for our American interstates. The driveline feels stout and the differentials both front and rear have received a fluid flush. We also resealed the oil pan to keep the four-banger topped up on lubricant and she's now running tip-top. The ABS brakes feel precise and the factory suspension is compliant and predictable. There are surprisingly few squeaks and rattles to note as the overall platform feels unflappable and confident. The 15" factory alloys are all wrapped in new all-season Falken rubber that we mounted and balanced here at the dealership. They will return plenty of year-round grip for tens of thousands of miles and can be put to work in less than ideal weather scenarios. Overall, this well-balanced sedan leaves little to be desired and is a blast to drive.
