On the introduction of a new model into the market, they always upgrade visual and mechanical features in the third year of production of the particular model. This upgrade is what they refer to as ‘facelift’ since the same model concept is maintained but enhanced with minor changes. After the elapsing of a 5-year production period, they produce a new model design that is superior to the earlier model. Subaru introduced the first WRX into the market in 2002.
