Subaru has plans of ‘boosting’ the Subaru WRX Impreza’s power output for their 2009 model year. A new buyer can expect stock gains of up to 41 horsepower over the 08 WRX model, which will place the horsepower at around 265. This kind of power numbers will make the WRX just under it’s STi brethren.
As usual, all wheel drive is standard on the 09 Subaru WRX. In addition, the same 2.5 liter boxer engine will also be used, making this one sexy four door. The additional power is just one of the changes coming in 2009 to the WRX, there will also be a number of cosmetic differences as well. The one I’m looking most too is the addition of Gun Metal Gray rims, as seen in the picture below.
