1st Generation (1992–2000)

Part of the Subaru Impreza lineup, the first WRX models featured turbocharged engines and all-wheel-drive systems that made them highly competitive in rally racing. The high-performance STI (Subaru Tecnica International) variant was introduced during this period.

2nd Generation (2000–2007)

The second generation continued to build on the rally-inspired design and performance. It saw further refinement in the engine and handling departments, as well as the introduction of the WRX STI in the U.S. market in 2004.

3rd Generation (2007–2014)

The third generation marked a departure from the Impreza name, with Subaru marketing the WRX and WRX STI as standalone models. This generation offered improvements in interior quality, technology, and safety features.
