Junior rude boys, rejoice! Subaru's Impreza is about to hit the market in a spec that won\u2019t hit your wallet, insurance premiums or a lamppost.\n\nFrom 1 October, the five-door 1.5R Sports Wagon will join the range for just \u00a312,495, which given the standard kit is quite amazing. Symmetrical all-wheel drive with a dual-range, low-ratio transfer \u2019box, alloys, climate-control air-con, radio\/cassette\/CD player, front and rear electric windows plus driver, passenger and side airbags are all there for just \u00a3500 more than a rather wet Ford Focus 1.4 Studio.\n\nThe all-new 1.5 litre "boxer" engine has been designed to offer high torque and high revs, and it will give around 107bhp However, top speed is just 109 mph, with a rather tortuous 0-60mph time of 13.5 seconds, Fuel economy is around 35.8mpg on a combined cycle, and exhaust emissions are just 184g\/km. As with all Impreza engines, the new 1.5 features twin overhead camshafts and variable valve timing.\n\nIn safety\u2019s name, the Sport Wagon also has four-channel anti-lock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution. Airbags all-round, energy-absorbing brake pedal and ISOFIX-compatible child seat mountings in the rear seats are also there.\n\nOverall, while it\u2019s looks and performance may not be to everyone\u2019s taste, the Sport Wagon is an amazingly cheap and practical vehicle that\u2019ll go on and on.
