It’s the handling that makes the Subaru Impreza stand out from the rest of the compact car segment. The Subaru Impreza is a driver’s car; it’s the only compact car on offer that comes standard with a sophisticated all-wheel-drive (AWD) system.

2019 Subaru ImprezaThis is particularly useful for drivers from Kansas City, Olathe, Lenexa, Lawrence, Shawnee, and Overland Park, as we’re increasingly seeing erratic weather causing disruption on the roads. With over 30 inches of snow on the roads each year in Kansas, it feels good to be in a car with AWD.

The Subaru Impreza holds its value well, so it’s also worth considering a used or pre-owned Subaru Impreza for sale. You’ll see a significant saving while getting one of the best family cars on the road.

Once you’ve decided on the 2019 Subaru Impreza, all that’s left to do is choose the trim level and extra features that best suits you. Let’s take a look at what’s on offer in the 2019 Subaru Impreza for sale at Olathe Subaru.

2019 Subaru Impreza Trim Options

The 2019 Subaru Impreza is available as a sedan or a five-door. There are four trim levels to choose from, and each is available on both the sedan and the five-door Impreza.

2019 Subaru Impreza Base 2.0i

When considering the ‘base’ Subaru Impreza, it’s worth remembering that this model already includes more than competitor vehicles offer even at the low 2019 Subaru Impreza price. Most importantly is the underlying powertrain and all-wheel-drive that makes the Impreza one of the most fun and engaging drives in the state.

The 2.0-liter four-cylinder Boxer engine keeps the center of gravity low and the vehicle stable as stable can be. You’ll get 152 horsepower at 6,000 rpm, and 145 pounds per foot of torque at 4,000 rpm.

The base 2.0i comes with a 5-speed manual transmission, which many drivers prefer. Nevertheless, a Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) is available as an option for around $1,000.

Expect an excellent 39 miles to the gallon in the city and 28 miles to the gallon on the highway in the sedan model. Choose the 5-door variant and you’ll get around 2 miles less per gallon in the city, and kitting out your Impreza in the Sport trim discussed later will drop these figures by another 1 mile per gallon.

Some of the highlights of the base trim interior include a 6.5-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, tilt-and-telescope steering wheel, a USB port, Bluetooth, and remote locking and unlocking.

On the outside, the base trim has steel wheels and daytime running lights.

A popular upgrade for the base trim is the EyeSight safety package. This feature adds automatic forward and reverse braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane-keep assist. It also upgrades the driver information display in the cabin.

2019 Subaru Impreza Premium

The Premium trim adds a number of “must-have” features, like a Wi-Fi hotspot, additional USB port, heated mirrors, and a sound-reducing windshield. The four-speaker sound system is replaced by a six-speaker system with satellite radio support. There are now steering-wheel paddles with six simulated gears.

For those wintry days and nights, the Premium trim includes the All-Weather package as standard. This includes a windshield wiper de-icer and heated front seats.

The EyeSight safety package continues to be an optional extra, but choose it on the Premium trim and you’ll also get cornering fog lights for better visibility on foggy nights.

The exterior sees an upgrade in the form of 16-inch alloy wheels.

2019 Subaru Impreza Sport

The Sport trim doesn’t just add features, it makes driving more fun. The Impreza is a car that loves to be driven, and the Sport trim brings out the best of it by borrowing a number of features from the high-performance Subaru WRX STI.

You have the choice of a manual or CVT with the Impreza Sport; the manual transmission now has a short-throw gear shifter.

The handling of the Impreza Sport is better thanks to performance tires and sport-tuned shocks. The addition of active torque vectoring makes you want to tackle every corner that you can find.

To pair with this improved ‘boy racer’ feel, the Impreza Sport has a number of styling changes. The alloy wheels are now 18 inches in diameter, there are a cool rear spoiler and body-color rocker spoilers.

Inside, the seats have been replaced with red-stitched sports seats that hug you and your passengers as you take every corner with ease. The shift handle and steering wheel are both now wrapped in leather. There’s also an 8-inch touchscreen, a color multifunction driver’s display, and keyless entry and ignition.

Popular upgrades are the Harman Kardon eight-speaker sound system and the EyeSight safety tech discussed above.

2019 Subaru Impreza Limited

The Sport trim is for those who want the most fun and engaging ride from the 2019 Subaru Impreza; the Limited trim is for those who want the most luxury.

The Limited trim builds upon the Premium trim and doesn’t include the performance-oriented upgrades of the Sport trim. This makes sense, as the stiffer suspension of the Sport trim isn’t the best choice for those who will mainly ride around town.

Instead, the Limited Subaru has leather upholstery, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, automatic climate control, and the EyeSight safety package, though blind-spot monitoring and rear-traffic alerts are optional extras.

On the outside, you’ll find unique 17-inch alloy wheels and LED adaptive headlamps.

Which Trim Level Should I Choose?

Subaru has done an excellent job of dissecting what people love about the Impreza and offering it in multiple different configurations. For the best-priced AWD vehicle around, choose the 2019 Subaru Impreza base model. For a bit more style and cold-weather features, upgrade to the Premium trim. For the best handling and a sportier feel, choose the Sport model. And for a more luxurious ride with all the trimmings, choose the 2019 Subaru Impreza Limited.
