Even Japanese manufacturer Subaru admits that the 2014 Subaru Impreza is not the most beautiful car in the world, but it is reliable and affordable. Powered by a 2.0-liter boxer 4-cylinder engine that generates 148-horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque, the car was available in two styles – sedan and hatchback. Both of which can benefit from the K&N 69-8008TTK cold air intake.

A standard five-speed manual transmission or an optional CVT offers all-wheel-drive and the manual equipped hatchback raced from 0 to 60 mph in 8-seconds while the CVT-equipped sedan achieved 60 mph in 9.4 seconds.

There are also two variants –- the WRX and the STI.

The WRX features a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder boxer engine generates 265-horsepower and 244 lb-ft of torque and comes with a five-speed manual transmission. The STI is powered by the same engine that produces 305-horsepower and 290 lb-ft of torque, which is mated to a standard six-speed manual transmission.

The 2015 model has the new Subaru Eyesight Driver Assist Technology, which includes adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking and vehicle lane departure warning. It is also equipped with a standard rear vision camera, a new infotainment system, and improved mileage of 28 mpg city and 37 mpg highway or 31 mpg combined.

The styling of the 2015 Impreza has been enhanced from the 2014 model to include a new front bumper, grille, and headlights, which makes it somewhat similar to the 2015 Subaru Legacy. Aerodynamics has been improved with a better exterior mirror and a low-profile trunk spoiler on the four-door models. In addition, the center high-mounted stoplight includes LED lights.

Liquid (hydraulic) engine mounts have also been included on models that feature the CVT transmission that helps dampen vibration. Double-wishbone rear suspension with pillow ball bushings provides a more stable ride.

The K&N 69-8008TTK air intake system is a proven replacement when it comes time to upgrade the factory air intake system. The K&N system includes a free-flow aluminum tube that assists in boosting horsepower and throttle response. The K&N system is designed to totally replace the factory system to dramatically improve the airflow so that the engine can breathe in more air than the factory air intake system provided.

The K&N 69-8008TTK system includes a black rubber topped K&N high-flow air filter and heat shield and it installs in the original air box space of the car in about 90 minutes with basic hand tools. The intake tube that is part of the system accommodates the factory mass air sensor and crankcase vent hose and is finished in a stylish black powder coating.

The air filter will last up to 100,000 miles before service is required. The K&N 99-5000 recharger kit can then be used to clean and restore the filter to its original capabilities. After cleaning the K&N air filter using the K&N filter care service kit, the air filter can be used again for another 100,000 miles.

The K&N 69-8008TTK air intake system can be used in the following vehicles:

2015 Subaru Impreza 2.0L H4
2014 Subaru Impreza 2.0L H4
