2019 Subaru Impreza Sport-tech + EyeSight Review


We’re taking a second look at Subaru’s compact AWD car, the 2019 Subaru Impreza Sport-tech with EyeSight Package.

Last year we featured the 2018 Subaru Impreza Sport with Optional EyeSight package: https://youtu.be/uEhfwCyy0xU

We’re now talking a look at the fully loaded sedan sold here in Canada, the 2019 Subaru Impreza Sport-tech with EyeSight, or in the US the Subaru Impreza 2.0 Limited with EyeSight. Our Snapshot goes over some of the differences with the top end trim along with the changes afforded by the hatchback over the sedan we drove over a year ago.

We go over the exterior LED adaptive headlights, wiper de-icer, rear parking sensors, backup camera, keyless entry, black trim elements, EyeSight safety tech, and the Sport appearance with this black hatch. We jump inside to go through the interior changes also, including full leather seating, Navigation with SiriusXM Radio, Apple CarPlay, & Android Auto along with the harmon/kardon audio system. Front heated seats, heated steering wheel and dual zone automatic climate control are also on this vehicle.

We then take the 2019 Impreza Sport-tech on a road test including a quick 0-100 kmh (0-60mph) test, and talk about the road feel, driving characteristics, and the feel of the Lineartronic CVT. We wrap up with our fuel economy testing for this compact consumer car and what we liked and disliked about it compared to last year.

    Thinking about trading up into one of these from a 2016 Civic LX. But I’m worried the power will be really lacking and sluggish in the Impreza. Is it worth it?

    Currently have a 2015 Mazda3 hatchback. My girlfriend just got an SUV so there will be no need for me to get an SUV, but I do need a slightly bigger car for 4 or 5 people. I don’t need the bells and whistles as her CX5 has navigation. The Impreza, legacy are the main two vehicles I’m looking at, basically for the AWD and the better interior space over my Mazda3.

    for those curious This exact model of car is not sold in the US. The US sport model is slightly different. The CA sport model has LED headlights and fog lights, US has halogen headlights and LED Day time running lights in place of fog lights. Also, the CA model has chrome accents on the front bumper where the US model has all black accents. Interior of US sport model is all black with red stitching, also has LED interior lighting as upgrade option.

    no "sport tech" in US..only "sport"
