Though not officially announced, pricing for the new 2008 Subaru Impreza has leaked out onto the web courtesy of a dealer with loose lips. The complete breakdown of models and packages shows that the redesigned 2008 Impreza will have a base MSRP of $16,995 for a four-door sedan with the 2.5L boxer-four. That's a full $1,000 less expensive than the outgoing 2007 Impreza 2.5i sedan.

At the other end of the spectrum, the WRX model with its turbocharged version of the 2.5L engine producing 224 horsepower will start at $24,350 for the four-door sedan and $24,850 for the five-door hatch. This model year's 2007 WRX TR (Tuner Ready) starts lower at $23,995, but is somewhat of a blank canvas car meant for customers who will immediately begin customizing their WRX. The base 2007 WRX sedan, however, starts at $24,995, meaning the 2008 model with its controversial new skin and upgraded interior will be $645 less expensive than the outgoing model.

It appears that Impreza prices have dropped across the board, which should help satisfy potential defectors who aren't pleased with the new design. If you've got money in your pockets, the most expensive Impreza until the STi appears will be a five-door WRX model with the Satellite Radio and Navigation package that retails for $28,950. There will also be an Outback Sport version of the five-door hatch, though not the sedan, that starts at $19,995. Destination charges, don't forget, will raise the price of any model by $645.

      I think that the higher priced 5-door WRX might not be too good for 5-door WRX sales!
      • 7 Years Ago
      I'm liking the new look, now really liking the price.The interior is very smooth and with a high end design look. I think the Impreza is the best deal, I'm in!

      That pricing seems very competitive, especially the entry-level sedan. You're talking AWD and quality Subaru engineering for the price of a mid-level Sentra. Nice.

      And the WRX remains an incredible performance bargain. VW's limited edition R32 Golf cum Rabbit is $33k, with very similar mechanical specs.

        the shitiest impreza subura ever made... BUT!! at the lowest price... u get wat u pay for i guess
      • 7 Years Ago
      The designs might be controversial to some, but they are the best looking impreza/wrx to date. I know, that isn't saying much coming from Subaru.

      I Still don't like the giant single snout on the hood, no matter how functional it is, better than the last one at least.

      What equipment is included in the premium package?
        • 7 Years Ago
        Premium gets you the heated seats, aero package, upgraded stereo, etc. Glad to see that Subaru managed to drop the weight and price! Seems like everybody else is going in the opposite direction these days.

      re RidinLow-

      So no Sunroof on the 2.5i?

      the most expensive Impreza until the STi appears will be a five-door WRX model with the Satellite Radio and Navigation package that retails for $28,950

      The base Impreza sedan really needs a spoiler on the back, but overall the entire Impreza line up is a great value. I really don't find the WRX sedan that bad looking.
      I am also looking at : Mini Cooper S (traction package)
      Nissan Rogue (AWD)

      Absolutely unattractive at any price.

        "Absolutely unattractive at any price."

        Just like your mother

      $28,950 for a STI?? Really.. thats awesome.
        • 7 Years Ago
        $28950 for the most expensive WRX. when do these cars come out.
        • 7 Years Ago
        No, they said the most expensive model until the STI comes out is "a five-door WRX model with the Satellite Radio and Navigation package that retails for $28,950"

        • 7 Years Ago
        You misunderstood...it's $28,950 for the most expensive version of the WRX currently. Once the STI is released, it no doubt will have a price quite a bit higher than $28,950. Probably something in the low to mid $30's.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Nice pricing. This is a car - the 5 door - high on my list for 2009/2010.
      • 7 Years Ago
      this looks so much better than the hatchback version they showed off. it looks sleek and futuristic.. The sad part? The 2008-2009 Ford Focus looks just like it, sans the hood scoop and spoilers and it's fwd and alot cheaper. I do like the Impreza and the Lancer and while they have the same rivalry as the camero and mustang, I would take both if I could.
