Subaru Impreza WRC2004
decoration
In their second year with new-look Impreza and Subaru opted for subtle changes, quite understandably. Even though it looks much the same as WRC2003, there are small but important changes in the bodyshell too. These come from the change in bodyshell minimum weight rules, allowing team to manufacture bonnet, boot, some of the windows and other parts from light weight materials like aluminium for body panels and polycarbonates for windows.

Under the skin changes concentrated on engine and it's ancillaries. Radiator was rearranged and angled backward to help airflow but at the same it was made vulnerable to water crossings where water entered the cooling system with force, costing time for both crews in more than one occasion during the 2004 season.
