2019 Subaru Impreza: Is it Fun to Drive?

With the launch of the 2019 edition of Impreza, Subaru could showcase the way it can handle high level of safety gear placing it in a roomy interior while a decent fuel economy would always maintain the appeal to people who were looking for such an exemplary compact car. There is no doubt that the owner of a 2019 Impreza will always have things to impress people around. Available in trim levels, namely, the Base, Premium, Sport, and Limited trim levels, each of these sedans is available in a five-door hatchback model.

What’s New for 2019

At the Subaru dealer Kearny Mesa we were informed that for the 2019 edition Subaru has introduced in its impressive Impreza a new automatic emergency braking and an adaptive cruise control and has made them standard on the Limited trim and available for its base trim level.

Exterior Styling

All 2019 Impreza trim levels can be configured in sedan and five-door hatchback bodies. Our preference tends toward the latter, both for its longer roof and for its extra utility. The sedan and hatchback share front end styling with big headlights that jut well into the fenders and surround a wide grille. The steel wheels covered in hubcaps in the base trim seem chintzy at these prices, however. Impreza Sports have dressier 18-inch alloy wheels and a body kit that works well with the car’s lines.

Interior

Inside, the Impreza’s controls are arrayed logically. Big climate control vents stand on either side of the 6.5-inch touchscreen for infotainment that’s standard fare. Spend more for the Sport and Limited trims and the 8.0-inch screen looks even better and is matched by stitching on the dashboard and door panels. Inside, what the Impreza lacks in an imaginative design it makes up for in roominess. The hatchback with its 55.3 cubic-foot maximum cargo capacity is especially impressive. A high level of standard equipment including a 6.5-inch touchscreen for infotainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Engine and Powertrain

The 2019 Subaru Impreza with its 2.0-liter flat-4 shuttle engine makes a 152 of horsepower in its all four wheels drive, under its hood. The powertrain maintains a right balance with a continuously variable automatic (CVT) and a 5-speed manual transmission. Take any trim, the 2019 Subaru Impreza will show its handling capability through its all along comfortable and composed ride.

Driving Impressions and Fuel Economy

As a high-riding compact, the 2019 Subaru Impreza behaves quite like a crossover vehicle that never turns shaky under any duress of off-road driving conditions. As per some happy customers of the Kearny Mesa Subaru dealer the handling in Impreza stays stable and supple even at sharp bends of roads making you feel the prowess without compromising on its fuel economy as per the EPA rating. Even with the all-wheel drive, the 2019 Subaru Impreza can deliver up to 32 mpg of mileage in a combined trip of city and highway driving.

The unique suspension dampers in the Sport trim makes the steering and tuning more fun, while proving its real worth in off-road driving spirit. to sum up, the 2019 Subaru Impreza is a compact car that is sensible, rightly priced without a compromise.
