The 2019 Subaru Impreza continues to stand out from other mainstream small cars. That’s because it offers both standard all-wheel drive and a long list of optional technologies. The Impreza also posts competitive fuel economy ratings.
Compact sedan and hatchback body styles are available for the 2019 Impreza. Both have standard seating layouts for five people. This year’s Impreza family includes four trim levels for each body style: 2.0i, 2.0i Premium, 2.0i Sport and 2.0i Limited. A four-cylinder engine and five-speed manual transmission are standard for the Impreza. A continuously variable transmission (CVT) is optional.
Changes for 2019 range from a new infotainment system for the Premium model to wider availability for Subaru’s EyeSight safety features.
The Impreza has an athletic stance that’s emphasized by dramatic sculpting along its sides. It’s a similar story at the front. There you’ll see boldly sculpted lower intakes that set off the car’s simple but aggressive grille. The Impreza Sport trims add rocker extensions and either a trunk- or roof-mounted rear spoiler, depending on body style. For the hatchback, roof rails are standard on the Premium and Limited trim levels.
Subaru keeps things pretty basic when it comes to standard content. The Impreza entry model checks in with power-adjustable mirrors and 16-inch steel wheels with covers. As unexpected benefits, the Impreza is available with steering responsive headlights and fog lights. Subaru also offers typical mainstream updates like a power moonroof, conventional fog lights, daytime running lights, heated mirrors, mirror-mounted turn signals and 16- through 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.
Inside, your eyes are immediately drawn to the Impreza’s highly detailed dashboard. It provides an upscale look with a molded upper level that flows around the car’s center stack. The Impreza is equipped with standard 60/40-split folding rear seats for both body styles. The sedan has a trunk capacity of 12.3 cubic feet, which is low even for a compact car. The hatchback solves that problem with 20.8 cubic feet of storage behind the rear seats and 55.3 in total.
The 2019 Impreza supplies the usual run of standard content. That includes cloth upholstery, manually adjustable front seats, air conditioning, power accessories, cruise control and a multifunction steering wheel with a tilt-and-telescoping column. Heated front seats are standard above the entry trim. In the Sport trim, an exclusive cloth upholstery and aluminum-alloy pedal covers are standard. The Impreza Limited welcomes standard leather-trimmed upholstery, a six-way power-adjustable driver’s seat and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
The standard engine for the Subaru Impreza is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. This unit makes 152 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque. The standard powertrain for the Impreza also combines all-wheel drive and a five-speed manual transmission. A CVT is optional for the base and Sport models. It’s standard on Premium and Limited trims. Note that the Impreza’s engine has a flat design that’s a hallmark of the Subaru brand. With the cylinders positioned horizontally, you get a lower center of gravity for better handling. Active torque vectoring is a further advantage for the Sport models. The technology applies braking power to the inner wheels when turning for better performance.
The Impreza is rated at 28/38 mpg city/highway with a CVT, which is good for the class. Front-wheel drive competitors like the 2019 Toyota Corolla earn slightly lower estimates.
The Impreza comes with a standard rearview camera and an infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Other standard infotainment goodies include a 6.5-inch touch screen, Bluetooth, access to select online-audio apps and four audio speakers.
The Subaru Eyesight package offers many advanced safety features. Leading the way are adaptive cruise control, automatic forward emergency braking, lane-departure alert, lane-keeping assistance and a 4.2-inch LCD instrument-cluster display. Eyesight is optional on all lower trims and standard on the Impreza Limited. Reverse automatic braking, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are available separately. Among the Impreza’s top infotainment upgrades are a navigation system, an 8-inch touch screen, a Harman Kardon audio system, satellite radio, HD radio and two dedicated back-seat USB ports.
"Most reliable car on the road. Manual transmission is super convenient for hills and makes daily driving extremely enjoyable. Shines in any weather condition. The Impreza is based on an off-road rally car, and the handling is awesome because of that. " Read Less
