So what price an old-shape Impreza? The under-rated 2.0 Sport (125bhp) looks similar to the Turbo, still has four-wheel drive but costs a whole lot less to buy and run. A 30,000-mile 00X Sport saloon can be picked up for around £10k, an estate £500 more.
Older Turbo models start from as little as under £6k for an M-reg 80,000-miler, to £16k-plus for an end-of-line 00X saloon.
Turbo values are dependent on mileage and extras: UK modified Prodrive P1 versions are the most expensive at up to £22k. WRX (218bhp) and STi (265bhp) 'grey' imports are around £1000 to £2000 less than official UK Turbo models, but they have higher specifications.
