Standard all-wheel drive makes the 2019 subaru Impreza a trusty all-season companion but it does little to excite enthusiast drivers. Both hatchback and sedan models get a 152-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder with either a 5-speed manual or a CVT. A 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is standard, while top-shelf Sport models get an 8.0-inch screen. Subaru’s EyeSight active safety tech is optional and includes adaptive cruise control and automated emergency braking.

2019 Subaru Impreza Wrx Sedan Overview and Price

No doubt, Subaru has had some very good years of late. Annual sales that had been burbling along at around 200,000 started swelling in 2008, after an overhaul of the company’s product line. Subaru steamrollered right through the recession, and in 2012–2013, when another product makeover gelled with the recovering economy to loft the brand even higher, up to the circa-600,000 mark it currently enjoys. And Subaru hasn’t squandered the profits drinking booze and rolling dice. Instead, it has plowed a significant pile of that enhanced revenue into an all-new, soon to be ubiquitous architecture given the sexy name of Subaru Global Platform. It makes its debut inside the 2017 Impreza, which now comes exclusively from Subaru’s U.S. plant in Indiana.

We’re told that 95 percent of the Impreza is new, from the curved skeletal members baked into the floor and designed to better manage impact pulses, to the super-stiff firewall that laughs at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s narrow-offset crash test, to the stouter yet no heavier suspension subframes, to the flowing exterior lines. Those looking to Subaru for design leadership, like those looking to the San Diego Padres for a World Series victory, will be disappointed yet again. But the new Impreza, unlike the bug-eyed monsters of the past, is handsome and sleek in a conventional way and drives like a worthy sequel from the company that brought you the BRZ (and the Toyota 86).

The Gold Wheels Era Is So Over

Subaru has wanted to push the Impreza up the social scale ever since it stopped offering gold wheels on the STI. The past is the past, and Subaru wants the all-wheel-drive-only Impreza to be thought of not as a hooligan’s proto-rally car but as a cut-price Audi, with dynamic sophistication to match. All the pieces haven’t really fallen into place until now, bedeviled as the Impreza was by chintzy no-brand electronics and a bargain-basement feel.

Now, with sedan and hatchback bodies available on a stiff new platform, a stick shift offered in the base and upper Sport trims, options such as a Harman/Kardon stereo and an 8.0-inch full-color high-res touchscreen with a host of apps including Apple CarPlay, and a price escalator that starts with the base $19,715 2.0i manual and ends with the $24,915 Limited automatic, the Impreza is gunning up to be a serious challenger to the Honda Civic and the Mazda 3, two compacts we consider as good alternatives for those who can’t or won’t pay for an Audi A3.

 

It Plays Out on the Road

Starting in the Padres’ backyard, we headed to the beautifully undulating hinterlands just north of the Mexican border to sample the Impreza sedan. Sadly, although the new Impreza is on sale now, manual-transmission cars won’t be available until this coming January or February. So it was the updated 2.0-liter direct-injected FB20 boxer four, parked in front of the CVT and electromechanical all-wheel drive, that we jockeyed (manuals still use a viscous coupling for the AWD).
