4 new upgrades
For 2019 MY, Subaru gives the Impreza compact a minor refresh with four new upgrades over the outgoing model. The 2019 Impreza now comes standard with the Tire Pressure Monitoring System with individual wheel pressure display on all trims. The base 2.0i CVT model now offers Subaru’s EyeSight Driver Assist Technology, and dual rear USB ports are now standard on Premium and above. Limited trim models are all now equipped with standard EyeSight and include High Beam Assist and Reverse Automatic Braking (RAB).
This is the third year of the new-generation Impreza and there were initial problems with the in-car electronics, where owners reported the rearview camera didn’t work properly (its screen froze or was blank), the radio got no reception, and there were problems with phone pairing. Those issues should be fixed for 2019.
The 2019 Subaru Impreza continues being the safest compact in America with a host of available safety technology. EyeSight features the adaptive cruise control system which we road tested on the new model and it keeps an ideal distance behind cars ahead, and it doesn’t slam on the brakes when someone cuts in ahead. It also features Blind Spot Detection with Lane Keeping asset, and Rear Cross-traffic alert and a standard rearview camera for extra safety.
