Historically, Subaru makes few changes in the 2 model years after presenting a brand new version. Because Subaru debuted this generation for the 2017 model year, we don’t anticipate to see any considerable changes this soon. Last year, for instance, the only change that Subaru released was the addition of optional automatic headlight activation with windscreen wiper use. Prices increased only $100. We don’t anticipate to see any significant changes up until the 2020 model year, when we would anticipate Subaru to carry out a “big small change” in that fourth year to freshen the look and keep the features competitive.
2019 Subaru Impreza Design
Having simply gone through a total redesign for 2017, we expect the 2019 Subaru Impreza to be a carryover model with few changes, if any at all. Lucky for Subaru, this absence of change shouldn’t be a bad thing, as the Impreza has a lot to love. Its seats are comfortable and the cabin is spacious, its basic all-wheel drive is a rarity in its class, its fuel economy is above average, its exposure is outstanding, and the optional EyeSight system provides a big suite of safety features very few cars in its class have. We believe all this will remain the exact same for 2019.
2019 Subaru Impreza Interior
That stated, this absence of change implies purchasers are stuck with another year of the Impreza’s smallish trunk, not-so-hot interior materials, and pricey safety equipment. Subaru is resistant enough to huge changes in look with redesigns, so we expect nothing stylistically new for the Impreza. However with its looks fresh and the interior design sharper than ever, this should remain a strong point.
2019 Subaru Impreza Engine
Delivering the power will likely be the exact same 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that injects 152 horse power and 145 pound-feet of torque. In the present car, the engine leaves something to be wanted in terms of straight-line speed, however it is easy on fuel despite being mated to a basic all-wheel-drive system. We likewise anticipate the outdated five-speed manual transmission to stay the standard transmission, with a continually variable transmission as an alternative.
We anticipate nothing however the very best from the Impreza in the security department in 2019. We expect the 2018 model’s Top Safety Pick+ score– the IIHS’ leading honor– to remain unless the institute changes the requirements for this score, which it tends to do regularly. Remember, however, to reach this rating, you have to include the optional EyeSight system, which runs $1,395 on the 2.0 i Premium trim in 2018.
2019 Subaru Impreza Pricing & Release Date
There are no information yet on when we need to anticipate to see the 2019 Impreza in showrooms, however we know it will get here at some point in 2018. As a carryover model, we expect minimal changes in prices relative to the existing Impreza, which varies from $20,215 to $25,415 (destination fees consisted of). Key competitors for the 2019 Impreza will consist of the Honda Civic, Ford Focus, and Toyota Corolla.
