2019 Subaru Impreza: Performance & Efficiency

Engineered with a new high-strength steel frame, the 2019 Impreza is designed to exude confidence from the inside out. Each model comes equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, which delivers 152 horsepower.

Drivers have the choice between a five-speed manual or Lineartronic® continuously variable transmission. The former offers more active control over the engine's power, while the latter provides seamless transitioning and an ultra-smooth ride.

Stability features like Vehicle Dynamics Control and the available Active Torque Vectoring help create remarkably nimble and responsive steering around sharp bends in the road. Of course, like with all Subaru models, the 2019 Impreza comes standard with a symmetrical all-wheel-drivetrain that gets an extra boost of stability from its built-in Traction Control System.

Fuel Efficiency

With superior fuel economy and a 13.2-gallon fuel tank, the 2019 Impreza is built to get you there and back while limiting trips to the pump-whether you're headed out for your daily morning commute or a long weekend road-trip.

The most efficient models are the 2.0i, 2.0i Premium, and 2.0i Limited sedans when equipped with a continuously variable transmission. CVT fuel economy changes based on what trim level and body style you choose:

2019 Subaru Impreza Technology

Available features like heated seats and automatic climate control make the Impreza one of the most comfortable small sedans on the market. In terms of staying connected, the 2019 Impreza offers a full suite of advanced tech, including a STARLINK™ multimedia system with standard connectivity options such as:

  • Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility
  • Pandora® and Aha™ smartphone app integration
  • AM/FM stereo
  • Bluetooth® audio streaming and hands-free phone
  • USB and auxiliary media ports

Depending on trim level, a four- or six-speaker sound system comes standard in the Impreza. However, there's also the option of upgrading to a Harman Kardon® premium audio system, which provides eight speakers and a 432-watt-equivalent amplifier for high-quality sound.

Subaru Impreza Dimensions: Sedan vs 5-Door

Step inside the 2019 Impreza sedan, and you'll find that the cabin is supremely generous for a small car, providing up to 99.8 cubic feet of passenger volume. Cargo space is equally abundant, with 12.3 cubic feet of trunk space.

That passenger space increases to 100.9 cubic feet in the five-door hatchback, which also offers an impressive 20.8 cubic feet of rear cargo  space. When the rear seatbacks are lowered, you have up to 55.3 cubic  feet of cargo space to play with in the hatch-perfect for moving a flat screen TV or gearing up for a weekend camping trip.

Load even more with roof racking capabilities, standard in every Impreza model. Each sedan comes with roof rack brackets, while the 5-door Premium and Limited models come with roof rails already equipped. Stylistically, each hatchback comes with an integrated roof spoiler-while a trunk spoiler is standard on certain trim levels in the sedan.

Subaru Impreza Trim Levels

Each body style offers four distinct trim levels, meaning there's a version to meet your particular taste and needs. Choose from the 2.0i, 2.0i Premium, 2.0i Sport, or 2.0i Limited.

The base 2.0i trim comes with cloth upholstery and a CFC-free air conditioning system to keep you comfortable through hot summers. Manage connected apps through the 6.5-inch touchscreen display, which is connected to a four-speaker sound system.

In the 2.0i Premium, your connectivity options get upgraded to the STARLINK™ Multimedia Plus system, which adds a CD player, an extra USB port, and access to STARLINK™ cloud-based applications. Plus, the Lineartronic® CVT comes with paddle shifters for a sportier ride.

Upgrade to the 2.0i Sport for stylish 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels. The sporty interior has red contrast stitching in the seats as well as a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear shifter. This trim level isn't all about style: Active Torque Vectoring provides an improved handling experience, as well.

The 2.0i Limited offers the most high-tech features and premium amenities. See around corners at night with steering responsive LED headlights, while fog lights increase visibility while you're driving through the clouds. Additional features include chrome door handles, leather-trimmed seating with a power driver's seat, and automatic climate control.

Safety Ratings

No matter where you're headed, safety is always a top priority. Fortunately, the 2019 Subaru Impreza performs well in crash tests, regardless of body style: It has a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The Impreza sedan and hatchback also both received the coveted title of 2019 TOP SAFETY PICK+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety in recognition of their crashworthiness, plus optional front crash prevention and high-tech headlights. Furthermore, each car comes with extra LATCH positions, making it easy to secure a child seat in the back.
