A marginal uptick in cost isn’t the only update for the 2019 Impreza, however. The base model can now be equipped with Subaru’s EyeSight Driver Assist Technology suite for a perfectly reasonable $845 given that it comes with adaptive cruise control, automatic pre-collision braking, lane-departure warning and lane keeping. EyeSight is also now standard on the Impreza Limited trim. Note, though, that EyeSight is still unavailable with manual transmission-equipped Imprezas. The range-topping Limited trim also comes standard with a pair of new safety features: reverse automatic braking and automatic high beams.
The Impreza Premium trim now comes standard with an upgraded Subaru Starlink 6.5-inch touchscreen that includes HD and satellite radios, two USB ports for rear passengers and a CD player (yay, save the CD’s!). Black alloy wheels are also now included on the Premium. Finally, the Impreza Sport gains an STI short-throw shifter when, quite obviously, it’s equipped with the manual.
The full pricing breakdown, all including destination can be found below. The 2019 Subaru Impreza arrives in dealers “this summer,” which we can only assume means if it’s not on dealer lots already, it will be very soon.
