One of the latest creations from Subaru - the Impreza WRX STi Carbon made its official debut at the Tokyo Motorshow 2009. Based on the A-Line model, the new sport hatchback has carbon fibre roof, which gives the car better hp/weight ratio and lowers the center of gravity to maintain better traction and handling. Other main difference is the updated interior, which includes more luxurious materials delivering better comfort to passengers.

Besides the carbon fibre roof and the interior changes the new Impreza WRX STi Carbon now comes with 5-speed automatic gearbox, which precedent for the WRX STi models. Obviously the real hard-core fans wont appreciate it, but it is designed to deliver better comfort for ordinary customers.
