Asphalt 8: Airborne Edit

Summary Edit

The SUBARU IMPREZA WRX STI was added to the game during the Research & Development Update of late 2015.

The Impreza is a high-end Class D car, qualifying as the fourth fastest car in the class with maximum speed upgrades and a Tuning Kit applied. Speedwise, it is found behind the Mazda RX-8, nanoFlowcell QUANTINO and Buick Avista Concept, and in front of the 1967 Chevrolet Impala and Mazda 6, respectively. Although its nitro efficiency is only medium and it has a relatively large emphasis on nitro, the Impreza boasts the highest performance of any non-Elite + non-token car in Class D. However, this is not without a huge price in credits.

The Impreza has a base rank of 517, a MAX rank of 1070, and a MAX + PRO rank of 1354. The Impreza benefits from the third largest Tuning Kit boost in the game, at +90 ranks. However, the large PRO rank increase of +284 reduces much of the Multiplayer potential of the Impreza.

Performance Edit

Although decent, the Impreza's acceleration statistic can be considered relatively low, given that many high-end cars of Class D feature exceptional rates of acceleration.

The Impreza also features a large nitro stat, but only a mediocre nitro efficiency of 8/13/18.

However, the Impreza's main advantage is a huge Tuning Kit bonus and a large total speed, due to the large nitro which it features (cars with larger nitro statistics feature higher total speeds for their ranks, within Class D).

The Impreza has a moderately high handling statistic but a relatively low drifting statistic, at least when compared to other Class D cars.

Usage Edit

Time-Limited Events Edit

The Impreza is not able to stand its ground as a Time-Limited Event car due to its absurdly high upgrade prices coupled up with inferior performance to the Mazda RX-8.

Other cars which are inferior to the Mazda RX-8, such as the nanoFlowcell QUANTINO and Donkervoort D8 GTO, see some usage in Multiplayer Time-Limited Events, as they have extreme acceleration and nitro efficiency statistics.

The Buick Avista Concept also holds the title of the highest-performing Elite A8Credits or A8Tokens car in Class D, with the Impreza only coming in second place to this title. This further increases the Impreza's low usage in Time-Limited Events.

Multiplayer Edit

On the other hand, the Impreza does have some usability in Multiplayer. Although it isn't a "king" at any rank-bracket in Multiplayer, the Impreza can easily be rated as the third best car within ranks below 800.

The best car within this bracket is a tie between the Ford F-150 and Renault DeZir, although the Ford F-150 is arguably superior to the Renault DeZir if the user runs an Extra Tank and avoids maps like Area 51 and Azure Coast.

The Ford F-150 has a total top speed that is at least 3 mph (5 km/h) faster than the Renault DeZir at many ranks. The Ford F-150 and Renault DeZir share a roughly equal top speed statistic, with the Ford F-150 having a slightly larger nitro statistic, while at a rank around 800. Below rank 700, the Ford F-150 has a much larger nitro statistic but a smaller top speed statistic.

Though the Renault DeZir is worse than the Ford F-150 in total top speed and is similar in raw top speed/acceleration/launch/handling/drifting, the Renault DeZir makes up for this with a very high nitro efficiency of 6/9/12, with the Ford F-150 only possessing a mediocre efficiency of 9/13/17, which does a poor job of keeping its nitro activated for the entire race (hence, why the Ford F-150 must be used on maps with frequent ramps).

The Impreza isn't as impressive as the Ford F-150 and Renault DeZir, both of which are superior speed-wise. The Ford F-150 possesses a ~7 mph (~10 km/h) higher speed and the Renault DeZir possesses a ~3 mph (~5 km/h) higher speed. The Impreza holds practically no advantage over either, other than its far superior base top speed statistic, which can be around 44 mph (70 km/h) faster; however, skillful Ford F-150 and Renault DeZir drivers will not allow themselves to run out of nitro. One should remember that the advantage of the Ford F-150 is total top speed, while the Renault DeZir's is nitro efficiency, and the Impreza's is raw top speed.

However, the Impreza outperforms the Camaro Z/28 in both speed and nitro duration (slightly). It also outperforms the Volkswagen Beetle Turbo in a similar way. The Impreza can also outperform the Porsche 959 if it avoids a rank of 850. The Impreza can easily outperform such cars as the Mazda 6, Range Rover Evoque Coupe HSE Dynamic, and Nissan Juke Nismo, at least at a rank around 800. The Impreza does have some small competition from the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe, which is slightly slower but possesses a higher nitro efficiency (the Evoque has the same nitro efficiency of 5/10/15, but its speed is worse than the GLC Coupe at very low ranks, due the GLC Coupe having Elite-Tuning, which can enhance its speed further, by utilizing the Tuning Kit more effectively).

Tunes for car comparisons:

Multiplayer tunes for the Ford F-150 are between 0005 0303 and 0405 0303 (~ranks 650-815).

Multiplayer tunes for the Renault DeZir are between 0004 0101 and 0205 0202 (~ranks 630-830).

Multiplayer tunes for the Impreza are between 0202 0000 and 0404 0000 (~ranks 630-830). [Pro Kits are best avoided entirely].

Multiplayer tunes for the Camaro Z/28 and Volkswagen Beetle Turbo are similar to those of the Impreza.

Multiplayer tunes for the Mazda 6 are between 0400 0000 to 0400 5050.

Multiplayer tunes for the Nissan Juke Nismo are between 0004 0505 and 0405 4545.

Multiplayer tunes for the GLC Coupe are between 0402 0000 0000 and 0404 5555 0808. [One optimal tune is 0404 3333 0408].

Multiplayer tunes for the Evoque are between 0300 0000 and 0500 5555. [One optimal tune is 0402 5050].

Multiplayer tunes for the Porsche 959 are 0004 0000 --> 0004 0500 ---> 0005 0500 --> 0405 0500 --> 0505 0500 --> 0505 0505, etc.

Pricing Edit

The Impreza costs A8Credits 300,000 to purchase, A8Credits 2,167,710 on MAX and A8Credits 632,750 to PRO. The Impreza also counts towards the 'Old School' collection,
