Subaru Liberty

Subaru WRX/STI/Liberty GT 2003-08

Subaru for 2003 returned to a conventional WRX frontal design but by then the model’s ‘wild child’ reputation had almost been extinguished.

Facelift models sold from 2003-06 are easily found and values are holding up better than might be expected.

The STI by 2003 was available only as a four-door with 195kW and any pretence to exclusivity was gone.

Some buyers opted instead for the Liberty GT which offered more space and similar performance to a WRX.

Used GTs are today a little cheaper than a ‘Rex’ but look out as a future collectible for the limited-edition ‘Tuned By STI’ version at under $20,000.
