Subaru is expanding its All Wheel Drive Impreza range with the addition of naturally aspirated sedan versions in November.

The Impreza 2.0R and 2.0R Sport sedans complement the existing hatch variants and share the same safety credentials — a maximum 5-star crashworthiness rating for occupant safety from the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) along with the maximum 4-star pedestrian ANCAP safety rating. Electronic stability control and six airbags, including curtain airbags, are standard on all models.

Subaru of New Zealand Managing Director, Graeme Woodlands, said: “Impreza sales have climbed by more than 10% since its launch 12 months ago and that has been without any sedans in the range.”We can only see that improving with the addition of the naturally aspirated sedan versions.We expect the Impreza 2.0R Sport sedan to be the more popular model like its hatch sibling.”

The base model Impreza 2.0R sedan features a good specification list for an entry level vehicle including; fulltime Symmetrical All Wheel Drive, 16-inch alloy wheels, six airbags including curtain airbags, electronic stability control, and ABS brakes with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution.

The Impreza 2.0R Sport sedan is differentiated externally by; 17-inch alloy wheels, dual exhaust system with chrome tail piper covers, a mesh sports grille, boot lid spoiler and a sports body kit. Inside, Impreza 2.0R Sport features sports seats, rear privacy glass and different cloth trim. Impreza 2.0R Sport adds six-stack CD player with 10 speakers, climate control air conditioning and leather-bound steering wheel with audio and cruise controls and a leather gearshift.

All naturally aspirated variants offer the choice of five-speed manual or four-speed SPORTSHIFT automatic transmissions. Both models are powered by a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder DOHC Boxer engine developing 110kW at 6,400 RPM and 196Nm of torque at 3,200 RPM.

The turbocharged Impreza WRX sedan is due for launch in December.

Pricing of equivalent Impreza sedans and hatches is identical, giving customers a direct choice between their preferred body style.

The Impreza sedan and hatch pricing is:

Impreza 2.0R manual $26,990
Impreza 2.0R automatic $27,990
Impreza 2.0R Sport manual $31,990
