Historically, Subaru makes few changes in the 2 model years after introducing a brand new version. Because Subaru debuted this generation for the 2017 model year, we don’t anticipate to see any substantial changes this quickly. Last year, for example, the only change that Subaru released was the addition of optional automated headlight activation with windscreen wiper usage. Rates went up only $100. We do not anticipate to see any significant changes until the 2020 model year, when we would anticipate Subaru to carry out a “big small change” because fourth year to freshen the look and keep the features competitive.
2019 Subaru Impreza Design
Having actually simply undergone a total redesign for 2017, we anticipate the 2019 Subaru Impreza to be a carryover model with very few changes, if any at all. Fortunate for Subaru, this absence of change shouldn’t be a bad thing, as the Impreza has a lot to enjoy. Its seats are comfy and the cabin is spacious, its basic all-wheel drive is a rarity in its class, its fuel economy is above average, its presence is exceptional, and the optional EyeSight system offers 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 said, this absence of change means buyers are stuck to another year of the Impreza’s small trunk, not-so-hot interior products, and costly security devices. Subaru is resistant enough to big changes in look with redesigns, so we expect absolutely nothing stylistically new for the Impreza. But with its looks fresh and the interior decoration sharper than ever, this ought to stay a strong point.
2019 Subaru Impreza Engine
Delivering the power will likely be the very same 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that injects 152 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque. In the current car, the engine leaves something to be desired in terms of straight-line speed, however it is simple on fuel in spite of being mated to a basic all-wheel-drive system. We likewise expect the out-of-date five-speed manual transmission to remain the basic transmission, with a continually variable transmission as an option.
We anticipate absolutely nothing but the very best from the Impreza in the safety department in 2019. We expect the 2018 model’s Top Safety Pick+ rating– the IIHS’ top honor– to stay unless the institute changes the requirements for this ranking, which it tends to do periodically. Remember, however, to reach this rating, you have to add the optional EyeSight system, which runs $1,395 on the 2.0 i Premium cut in 2018.
2019 Subaru Impreza Pricing & Release Date
There are no details yet on when we must anticipate to see the 2019 Impreza in display rooms, however we know it will show up at some point in 2018. As a carryover model, we expect minimal changes in rates relative to the current Impreza, which ranges from $20,215 to $25,415 (destination charges consisted of). Key competitors for the 2019 Impreza will consist of the Honda Civic, Ford Focus, and Toyota Corolla.
