2019 Subaru Impreza Exterior WRX Redesign and Changes

The 2019 Subaru Impreza is Such amazing sedan from my favorite brand car. but, don’t buy this car before you read this review. mmmmmh what I can say, you’ll happy with this car:v

The new Subaru Impreza maintains the full traction and the boxer engine, but is now finished with more care and drives even better. Behind, who is in the middle is uncomfortable and some commands are to be revised.

The fifth generation of the Subaru Impreza, already sold in Japan and the United States from the end of 2016, arrives also from us; There are already some specimens in the dealerships. In here (where the Impreza are not imported from 2013, if not in the model “crossover” called XV) we will see only the five-door version, without a tail, which has quite important dimensions for the category: it is 446 cm long. The shape recalls that of the previous Impreza, but the shell is entirely new and the characteristic elements (sloping roof and baseline of the windows that rises towards the roof) are more evident. The side is spinning, thanks also to the deep-rooting in the upper part of the doors and the window rather inclined; The latter aesthetic choice, however, penalizes not little the rear visibility (although, in the car parks, the reverse camera gives a big hand).

As soon as you enter the cockpit of the 2019 Subaru Impreza (easy operation: The doors open almost at an angle of 90 degrees and the Style ships version has the electronic key serial) you immediately notice a sharp improvement over the previous series. Now the plank plastics are soft, and the assembly is accurate. A little dispersive, however, the arrangement of the instrumentation, which is divided between the actual dashboard, the screen of 4.2 “above the console and that of 8” (touch) of the multimedia system (which includes the Protocols Apple CarPlay and Android Auto). In addition, the steering wheel is too crowded with controls (there are 15 buttons and levers). It would also be possible to revise the positioning of the keys on the ceiling, which allow to activate the Pre-collision braking System (automatically brakes to prevent collision) and the Lane Sway Warning, which warns the driver, when the car starts to exit the Own lane, with the lighting of a spy and playing a buzzer. Both devices are part of the EyeSight Guide assistance system: standard for all versions, it uses two cameras behind the windshield and also includes the adaptive cruise control and the Lane keep Assist function, which helps to keep the car within The roadway, correcting the trajectory. Remaining on the subject of safety, we report the presence of seven airbags (there is also the one for the knees of the driver).

In front, there is all the necessary ease (the seats are cozy, and, for the Style ships that we drove, also Heatable) and behind who sits on the sides of the couch has the way to stretch the legs. Very different is the situation for a possible passenger of the Subaru Impreza that tries to accommodate in the middle; It has to contend with the raised seat (who exceeds 180 cm touches the ceiling with the head) and has the obstruction of the tunnel of the transmission and the cabinet between the seats. The capacity of the trunk is good, for a 4×4 that discounts the footprint of the rear differential (385 liters, which become 1310 with reclining couch) but the loading plane is 11 cm below the threshold: load and unload is not very convenient.

2019 Subaru Impreza Hatcback Changes

The 2019 Subaru Impreza sti remains loyal to the classic setting of all Subaru, with boxer engine (a 1.6 turbo-free gasoline) and full traction, but compared to the old model makes the steps forward in handling. The merit of the lowered center of gravity of 5 mm and especially of the new platform, which improves the torsional stiffness of 70 percent compared to the old model. With the four wheels always in grip, the traction is also effective on the slippery funds, and in turn it really seems to be “glued” to the road: the merit goes, in addition to the integral traction, to the suspensions that restrict the roll (but manage to filter very well the Disconnections of the asphalt). The positive rating also for braking, sports type: The pedal has the short stroke, and to be operated requires some effort. To make it pleasant the guide then give their contribution the steering, direct and precise, and the valid change to the continuous variation of the reports (the only expected: no manual transmission) that do not exaggerate with the unpleasant effect of dragging of this type of Transmissions. Pity only that it is not the type of the “virtual marchers” (some cars with the same type of transmission offer them) to have a more suitable answer to the sports guide.

2019 Subaru Impreza Performance; Always Great

Already the performance declared by the house for the Subaru Impreza (0 to 100 km/h in 12.4 seconds and 180 km/h of maximum speed) make it clear that this is not a particularly bright car, but the 1.6 (updated and lightened 12 kg) is pleasant to use and n On gives the impression of being undersized; Also, it doesn’t make too much noise. Thanks to the full traction, however, it seems that the consumption is not low: the average calculated by the computer on board, in the mixed test path, was 11 km/L (instead of the 15.6 officers).

Pros and Cons


  • finishes. The car is very well made: the improvement over the old is remarkable.
  • Guide. Brakes with a good bite, precise steering, road holding and high-level stability.
  • Security. Curated: standard, driving aid systems, including the adaptive cruise control and the device that helps keep the car inside the lane.


  • commands. Steering wheel with too many keys and some commands on the ceiling: you need to distract to find the function you are looking for.
  • fifth place. Whoever sits in the middle of the couch is called to some sacrifice too.
  • visibility. The sports line limits the rear visibility. But, in reverse, the camera helps a lot.
