What is the Subaru Impreza WRX’s top speed?

I’ve always wanted the speed of a Subaru WRX, but I found out that I can buy a more affordable model by getting the Impreza WRX. I just want to know if it has the same speed and acceleration as the regular Subaru WRX. What is the top speed of the Subaru Impreza WRX?

In 2014—its final year of production—the
Subaru Impreza WRX
had a top speed of 155 mph. While the sporty compact has featured various engines over the years, its last iteration was the fastest thanks to a 265-hp, 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
Produced from 1992 to 2014, the Impreza WRX eventually became the legendary
Subaru WRX
. But if you’re looking for a bargain, it’s a great option. It has sporty appeal, while also boasting either a five-speed or six-speed manual transmission.
With one of these transmissions at your disposal, the Impreza WRX even offers a 0-60 mph time of between 5.6 and 5.9 seconds, which is downright thrilling—or terrifying, depending on who you ask. Before you test the Subaru Impreza WRX out on the open road to determine your take on that, use the
