Subaru Impreza, WRX STi Axed in United Kingdom

According to reports, the Subaru Impreza and WRX STi models are being cut from the Japanese automaker’s lineup in the United Kingdom.

Starting next year, Subaru’s sports car will no longer be in the UK due to a lack of demand. The WRX STi currently has enough stock to last until early summer, but the automaker has no plans to replenish it.

Subaru instead will focus on its XV, Forester, and Outback SUV models, and of course the sporty BRZ. Out in the UK, Subaru hopes to get more BRZs next year to help satisfy the strong demand on the car. The BRZ was recently selected as’s Reader’s Choice Sports Car of the Year.

“The new Impreza has been under evaluation in the UK for 12 months, but the decision has been taken not to bring that car to the UK because of insufficient demand,” said a Subaru spokesman to Auto Express.
