2022 Subaru WRX MODEL OVERVIEW

The patience of Subaru fans is finally being rewarded as a new WRX and WRX STI arrive for the 2022 model year. The 2022 Subaru WRX will be the first meaningfully redesigned model in years; the outgoing generation was new back in the 2015 model year. Since then, the hot hatch/sedan segment has largely passed it by, with stars like the Honda Civic Type R and the raucous Hyundai Veloster N. Could one of the original sporty four-doors come back on top? We look forward to finding out. For now, check out our first ride review for our initial impressions of the all-new WRX sedan.

What will power the 2022 WRX?

A 2.4-liter turbocharged flat-four will lives under the hood of every 2022 Subaru WRX and WRX STI. In WRX form, it develops 271 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, with the WRX STI model coming in at least 310 hp; some rumors suggest the STI may hit as much as 400 hp. Regardless, both models will come standard with AWD, unlike the RWD-only BRZ. Additionally, Subaru equips a six-speed manual transmission as standard. A CVT, which the automaker calls the Subaru Performance Transmission, is available.

Sedan or Hatchback?

There hasn't been a WRX or WRX STI hatchback model in years, but that doesn't mean the 2022 model won't bring back the enthusiast favorite. For now, we know you can count on a WRX sedan being part of the picture.
