Subaru Impreza STI
The Subaru Impreza made its name in the ‘90s thanks to an interesting, highly capable combo. First, it had a turbocharged flat engine, and the second was the all-wheel drive. And finally, the third was the fantastic power and torque. So, in 2008, they debuted the Impreza as a five-door hatchback.
And immediately, it set the hot hatch world on fire. This was a smart move from Subaru with the invading hot hatch class to attract more buyers to the Impreza. Yet they still managed to keep the performance and mechanical layout intact. Also, with 305 HP and intelligent AWD traction, the Impreza was one of the best and fastest hot hatches money could buy.
