Historically, Subaru makes very few changes in the two model years after introducing an all-new variation. Because Subaru debuted this generation for the 2017 model year, we do not expect to see any substantial changes this soon. Last year, for instance, the only change that Subaru published was the addition of optional automated headlight activation with windscreen wiper use. Costs increased just $100. We don’t expect to see any considerable changes up until the 2020 model year, when we would anticipate Subaru to carry out a “big minor change” in that fourth year to refresh the look and keep the features competitive.
2019 Subaru Impreza Design
Having actually just undergone a total redesign for 2017, we expect the 2019 Subaru Impreza to be a carryover model with very 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 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 uses a large suite of safety features very few cars in its class have. Our company believe all this will stay the same for 2019.
2019 Subaru Impreza Interior
That said, this lack of change suggests buyers are stuck to another year of the Impreza’s small trunk, not-so-hot interior products, and costly security equipment. Subaru is resistant enough to huge changes in look with redesigns, so we expect absolutely nothing stylistically new for the Impreza. However with its looks fresh and the interior design sharper than ever, this need to remain a strong point.
2019 Subaru Impreza Engine
Delivering the power will likely be the same 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that injects 152 horse power and 145 pound-feet of torque. In the current car, the engine leaves something to be preferred in terms of straight-line speed, however it is easy on fuel regardless of being mated to a standard all-wheel-drive system. We also expect the out-of-date five-speed handbook transmission to remain the basic gearbox, with a continually variable transmission as a choice.
We anticipate nothing but the very best from the Impreza in the security department in 2019. We anticipate the 2018 model’s Top Safety Pick+ ranking– the IIHS’ leading honor– to remain unless the institute changes the requirements for this score, which it tends to do periodically. Remember, though, to reach this ranking, 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 details yet on when we should anticipate to see the 2019 Impreza in showrooms, but we know it will get here sometime in 2018. As a carryover model, we expect very little changes in prices relative to the current Impreza, which ranges from $20,215 to $25,415 (destination fees consisted of). Key competitors for the 2019 Impreza will include the Honda Civic, Ford Focus, and Toyota Corolla.
