2009 Subaru Impreza Wrx
Subaru Impreza WRX
Subaru is revving up execution and treatment in its iconic All-Wheel Driving Subaru Impreza WRX mutant constrict for 2009, pursual the introduction of the all-new modelling in 2008. Execution leaps to a higher floor in the 2009 Subaru Impreza WRX thanks to a 265 hp turbocharged intercooled Bagger locomotive, retuned respite and wider, lower-profile summertime execution tires. WRX enthusiasts testament apace distinguish the 2009 models by the ST-type lattice and banner Aero Software. The 2009 Subaru Impreza WRX comes with a 5-speed manual infection.
New Impreza GT Model
Subaru is besides introducing a new Impreza 2.5GT modelling for 2009, powered by a 224-horsepower turbocharged intercooled locomotive teamed to a received 4-speed electronically controlled robotic transmittance with SPORTSHIFT.
Both the more potent Subaru Impreza WRX and the new 2.5GT are useable as 4-Door and 5-Door models. As on all Subaru models, the Subaru Impreza WRX and 2.5GT models are weaponed with Symmetric All-Wheel Driving.
The finish of the 2009 WRX squad was termed “Kyo-Ka” (translated from Japanese as “strengthening”). To accomplish this destination Subaru engineers good revamped the execution role of the Subaru Impreza WRX for 2009. Gaining a bigger turbocharger, on with a new larger-diameter eject and low-density accelerator for decreased backpressure, the Subaru Impreza WRX locomotive now produces 265 h.p. at 6,000 rpm and 244 lb.-ft. of bill torsion at 4,000 rpm – important increases from the 224 h.p. and 226 lb.-ft. in the 2008 interpretation.
2009 Subaru Impreza WRX
The Subaru Impreza WRX debuted an all-new program for the 2008 modeling class, featuring a thirster 103.1-inch wheelbase and an all-new double-wishbone bum suspension. Revised abeyance tuning for 2009 boost bolsters WRX’s street operation certificate. The criterion 17 x 7-inch al metal wheels now bear 225/45R17 summertime functioning tires, compared to 205/50R17 all-season tires victimised on the 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX. The Fomite Kinetics Restraint (VDC) stableness and grip restraint organisation, which is stock on all Impreza models for 2009, helps to heighten the WRX simulation’s route manipulation prophylactic.
Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive
Criterion Proportionate All-Wheel Driving, which forms the usual essence engineering on all Subaru models, gives the Subaru Impreza WRX a meaning manipulation execution reward concluded front-wheel crusade competitors. Symmetric All-Wheel Effort is a ended organisation comprised of the Bagger locomotive and the full-time powerfulness dispersion arrangement (varies by example and contagion). The aluminium Pugilist locomotive and unproblematic, symmetric drivetrain layout helper to depress the car’s centre of sobriety, which successively contributes to its manipulation characteristics.
The 2009 Subaru Impreza WRX employs a mucilaginous pairing lockup essence derivative that distributes torsion 50:50 battlefront/bum. Should slippage hap, this scheme transfers more superpower to the wheels with the topper grip. The 2009 Impreza 2.5GT, wish early Subaru models equipt with reflex transmittance, uses a dissimilar interpretation of the Symmetric All-Wheel Campaign organisation. An electronically managed incessantly varying transport batch actively manages powerfulness dispersion based on speedup, retardation, and useable grip. This dynamic torque-split organization mechanically transfers more ability to the wheels with the better clutch should slippage come.
Suspension Re-Tuned For Sharper Handling
Subaru importantly re-tuned the abatement on the 2009 Subaru Impreza WRX, resulting in sharpie turn-in and more antiphonal manipulation boilersuit. Figurehead speed sashay mounts are adoptive from the STI. The strawman saltation pace is increased from 26.5 N/mm to 38 N/mm, and the bottom saltation place is increased from 24 N/mm to 34 N/mm. Diam of the stabiliser bars is likewise increased, from 20 mm to 21 mm before and from 15 mm to 16 mm in the behind. Abatement damping has too been re-tuned. Notably, the new, stiffer abeyance tuning did not involve any boost reinforcer of the inherently firm Impreza structure.
Because the wider tires put-upon on the 2009 Subaru Impreza WRX spring more kickback than those on the 2008 manakin, a new muffler valve was added to the guidance gearbox to check a tranquil and superiority steerage notion.
The Subaru Impreza WRX bod is intentional for improved rigidness and cod puff and employs high-tension nerve at key morphological points. In improver to providing a base for more antiphonal treatment, the double-wishbone bum dangling that debuted in the new-generation Impreza models enables a polish drive character also as reduced route randomness for a quieter cabin.
The new-generation conception results in a frown boilersuit burden for the personify spell the thirster wheelbase allows for improved rag kinetics, more inner board and rock-bottom levels of stochasticity, palpitation, and rigor (NVH). In gain, the new flesh improves crash-worthiness and provides a stiffer program for crisper treatment.
Placing the locomotive slimly glower in the figure than in the previous-generation Impreza models helped glower the centre of sobriety in the new Impreza program, enhancing guidance reception. With the Subaru Dynamical Build Mastery Construct (DC3), Subaru optimized all elements of the Impreza’s anatomy to present a improve counterweight of treatment answer, cod caliber, tranquillity and boilersuit grip operation than offered by competitory vehicles.
New WRX Aero Body Styling
On both 2009 Subaru Impreza WRX Saloon and 5-Door models, a new STI-type grillwork carries the WRX badge. Both models get a sharpened new face from the criterion Aero Software, which was erst parting of the optional WRX Bounty Packet. Both soundbox styles besides have movement and backside under-bumper spoilers and streamlined incline earth effects. The saloon has a low-profile back body pillager, spell the 5-Door adopts the Subaru Impreza WRX STI bottom freebooter and a back diffusor. The ass trim empanel betwixt the igniter clusters is soundbox colouration on the 5-Door and chromium-plate on the saloon.
Early distinctions betwixt the two models extend as earlier, including open ass taillight lenses for the 5-Door and red lenses on the saloon. The 4-Door features twofold tailpipe outlets, spell the 5-Door uses a one, bigger issue (stainless on Agio Box.)
The Subaru Impreza WRX upcountry introduced new consolation and capaciousness for 2008, and for 2009 it gains new WRX-exclusive crock checked upholstery tonic by red sewing. The banner lean and telescoping leather-wrapped wheel is stressed by red sewing and measure aluminum-alloy cycle covers now admit the driver’s tuffet.
Performance-design figurehead seating desegregate the back and headrest into a ace construction. The sportsmanlike board features electroluminescent gauges, alike to the Subaru Impreza WRX STI. As in the WRX STI, the indicator needles sweep the gauge faces upon engine startup for a sporty effect. The WRX Premium Package gains a power moonroof; other contents carry over, including the 10-speaker audio upgrade with auxiliary input jack, projector-beam fog lights, dual-mode heated front seats, heated exterior mirrors and a windshield wiper de-icer.
The compact layout of the double-wishbone configuration helps to minimize intrusion into the cargo area, providing a wider and deeper luggage compartment. On the 5-Door WRX, the wide and flat load floor can accommodate two Tour-size golf bags with the rear seat backs in the upright position. In the Subaru Impreza WRX sedan, which is 4.5-inches longer than the previous-generation Impreza sedan and 6.5-inches longer than the new 5-Door models, the extra space provides for a larger, deeper trunk that can accommodate three Tour-size golf bags. In all Subaru Impreza WRX models, a 60/40-split folding rear seat further boosts cargo capacity and convenience.
Advanced Yet Easy-To-Use Technology
The available navigation and information center in Subaru Impreza WRX is the focal point of the center console. The navigation screen is located at the top of the dashboard for improved visibility and ease of use. With the navigation system, the center console provides an input for MP3 players as well as RCA-type video jacks that can accommodate portable gaming devices. These can be displayed on the navigation screen when the vehicle is parked.
Impreza models come pre-wired for XM® or SIRIUS® Satellite Radio. Both the standard and optional Impreza audio systems feature the Radio Broadcast Data System (RBDS) that can display a variety of information, including a song’s title and artist. The standard WRX audio system features an AM/FM stereo with single-disc CD player and four speakers.
The WRX Premium Package adds an AM/FM stereo with 6-disc in-dash CD changer featuring MP3/WMA file capability. Occupants enjoy powerful sound from 10 upgraded speakers (six in the front doors, four in the rear doors) and SRS® Circle Surround Sound. Also with this package, the steering wheel adds audio system switches. An auxiliary audio input jack enables connection of an iPod or MP3 player.
The optional Satellite Radio and Navigation package for the Subaru Impreza WRX integrates the Audyssey MultEQ audio enhancement. Used in high-end home theater systems, Audyssey MultEQ creates the optimal sound experience for passengers in each seat position by tuning equalization that corrects for time and frequency response. The navigation system itself presents major functions through an intuitive, easy-to-use touch screen interface. This option also includes Bluetooth® hands-free wireless capability (requires accessory kit.)
The new-generation Impreza models are built upon the proven Subaru Ring-Shaped Reinforcement Frame body structure with front and rear crumple zones. All Impreza models for 2009 feature a 4-wheel disc Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist. (The WRX and 2.5GT models have larger front brakes than other Impreza models.) All seats provide 3-point seatbelts (height-adjustable for outboard positions), and the front seatbelts have electrically triggered pre-tensioners and force limiters.
Side-curtain airbags are standard on all 2009 Impreza models. The Subaru Advanced Frontal Airbag System (SRS) features front seat side impact airbags and a driver’s side front airbag that deploys according to the driver’s proximity to the steering wheel, as measured by a sensor on the seat track. In the passenger side front seat, a sensor module detects weight – first determining if it is occupied, and if so by a child or adult – to control airbag deployment. As part of the system, the dashboard features an “Airbag” indicator light.
