2019 Subaru Impreza pricing is up $125 from the 2018 model to start at $19,480 for the base 2.0i compact sedan with a five-speed manual, including an increase in the destination charge by $25 to $885. But Subaru also now will offer its EyeSight safety technology as an option for that base model where it was previously the only trim without the option. Other trim levels get varying price increases.
The Impreza was fully redesigned for 2017 and is offered in sedan and hatchback versions ($500 more for any model). Trim levels in ascending order of price are 2.0i, 2.0i Premium, Sport and Limited. All have a 152-horsepower, 2.0-liter boxer four-cylinder and all-wheel drive. All offer a continuously variable automatic transmission with a paddle-shifter manual mode that mimics seven gear steps; the base and Sport trim levels have a five-speed manual transmission standard.
The major feature change for 2019 is that Subaru now will offer its EyeSight safety system with automatic emergency braking and other driver assist technology on all trim levels and will make it standard on the top Limited model. The newly optional EyeSight for the 2.0i base model will be part of an $845 package for cars that also have the $1,000 CVT. The package also includes an upgraded driver information display, an overhead console light and a tire pressure monitor that shows the pressure for individual wheels. Subaru's EyeSight is not available on the stick-shift cars.
The EyeSight system is still optional on the Premium trim level (in a $1,395 package that also includes blind spot protection, rear cross-traffic alert and steering-responsive foglights) and Sport cars equipped with the CVT (in a $2,945 package that includes the Eyesight tech plus a moonroof and premium Harmon Kardon audio).
The 2019 Premium trim level sedan with a standard CVT will start at $22,480 with destination, an increase of $325. It gets an updated Subaru Starlink standard multimedia system featuring a 6.5-inch touchscreen with smartphone integration and satellite radio capability as well as availability of the latest Starlink safety and security services. It also gets new-style alloy wheels, dual rear USB ports and heated front seats.
The Sport trim level, which has electronic torque-vectoring all-wheel drive as well as sporty trim and an 8-inch touchscreen, will start at $23,080 for the sedan with the five-speed manual, an increase of $125. The CVT is an additional $800.
The top Limited model will start at $25,880, a price bump of $825, and is now standard with standard Eyesight as well as the CVT, automatic high beams, rear automatic braking, LED headlights and leather interior trim.
The 2019 Subaru Impreza will be at dealers this summer.
