Subaru Impreza 22B

The Ultimate Classic Impreza

Introduction

Subaru built just 424 examples of the 22B to celebrate its 40th year in the car business, taking the already fabulous STi Type R and fortifying it with muscular blistered arches covering bigger wheels, and opening up the flat four to 2.2-litres.

But what about the 22B? Having not driven one before, but heard stories about its stiff-legged, crashy ride, I was amazed how well suited it seemed to tough British A and B roads, and how much feel there was through the gorgeous thin-rimmed Nardi wheel.

But it’s hard to drive a 22B and not get fixated by that engine. Subaru might have quoted the same nominal 280hp (276bhp) for the 2.0-litre STis, but dip your toe in at low revs, feel the kick in the back and you know this is an Impreza like no other.
