The 2008 Subaru Impreza wagons are more plushly equipped than Subarus of recent memory.

The Impreza wagon is offered in two different models: the 2.5i and the 2008 Subaru Outback Sport. The 2.5i starts quite basic and includes air conditioning, keyless entry, power windows and locks, and an MP3-compatible CD sound system. The Premium Package adds four-wheel disc brakes, fog lamps, steering-wheel audio controls, and an upgraded 10-speaker sound system with an auxiliary jack. Sirius Satellite Radio and a navigation system are available together as a package.

The 2008 Subaru Impreza wagons bring some upscale options to their compact package. 

The 2008 Subaru Outback Sport brings a more rugged look and some enhanced ability, thanks to a raised suspension, larger wheels, and standard electronic stability control. The Outback Sport also gets special side molding, bumper underguards, heated side mirrors, fog lamps, a wiper deicer, heated seats, and the 10-speaker audio system.

Cars.com reports more features that include "dual-mode heated front seats"; 2008 Subaru "manual transmission models get the incline start assist, which prevents the car from rolling backward on a hill."

According to Kelley Blue Book, 2008 Subaru options include the "Navigation Package, which adds a touch-screen GPS system and Bluetooth capability." Automotive.com reports that Subaru 2008 stand-alone options "include body molding colors various deck-lid spoilers, a battery warmer, a subwoofer and power amp for the base audio system, and XM or Sirius satellite radio hardware."
