No changes were in store for 2001, with a completely redesigned Impreza Wagon issued for 2001 that offered better quality materials, an updated exterior and interior styling, enhanced performance and new safety equipment. The only changes for 2002-2003 were updates to the trim levels. In 2004, the Impreza Wagon got new front and rear fascias, new headlamps and updates to all upper trim levels.
