2019 Subaru Impreza: Only mainstream compact car with all-wheel drive

The compact Subaru Impreza retains its title as the most affordable all-wheel drive car in Canada, with its starting price of $19,995 unchanged for 2019. With that low MSRP comes a small car that punches well above its weight when it comes to value.

Subaru's 2019 Impreza continues to offer the passive, active and preventative safety systems that enabled it to be the very first small car to receive the Top Safety Pick+ (TSP+) designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) — the highest safety rating possible.

Available in both sedan and 5-door configurations, the 2019 Impreza uses the Subaru Global Platform (SGP) to tie together the performance, dependability and safety features that have become synonymous with the Subaru brand.

Under the hood lies a direct-injection 2.0-litre SUBARU BOXER 4-cylinder engine that produces 152 horsepower and 145 lb.-ft. of torque, and integrates perfectly with either a 5-speed manual transmission or available Lineartronic continuously variable transmission (CVT).

In addition to Subaru's legendary Symmetrical full-time all-wheel drive, all trims come equipped with standard air conditioning, cruise control and LED tail lights, as well as the latest version of Subaru's infotainment system that includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for seamless smartphone integration.

The Touring trim adds a 6.3-inch multifunction display atop the dash, as well as enhanced gauges and a six-speaker audio system, automatic climate control, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear selector, and a windshield wiper de-icer, among many more features. A new 16-inch alloy wheel design has been added for 2019 for an enhanced look.

The Sport trim, meanwhile, sees the list of standard features grow to include a power driver's seat, LED steering-responsive headlights, LED daytime running lights, a power glass sunroof, 17-inch alloy wheels, a larger eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and Subaru Rear/Side Vehicle Detection, with blind spot detection, lane change assist and rear cross-traffic alert.

Unique to the Canadian-exclusive Sport-tech trim is sport suspension tuning, active torque vectoring, a heated steering wheel, leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, an eight-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, and infotainment system with navigation and over-the-air map updates.

Available on Sport and Sport-tech trims, the optional EyeSight package includes the EyeSight suite of active safety features, as well as high beam assist, rear proximity warning with reverse automatic braking and proximity key with push-button start.

New for 2019 on the entry-level Convenience trim is the availability of Subaru's Impreza-exclusive Island Blue Pearl exterior colour, while that finish is also available for the first time for 2019 with an ivory interior on Touring, Sport and Sport-tech trims.
