2022 WRX SHOWN

A Tradition of Motorsport Performance[539]


Aggressive, Rally-Inspired Design

With its dramatically flared fenders, menacing front grille, and athletic stance, the all-new 2022 WRX wears its rally heritage on its sleeve. Our engineers drew upon decades of motorsport experience to both tune the performance features and shape the bold exterior design, referencing its racing history while creating the next evolution of the WRX.

Standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive for Tenacious Grip

One of the core performance features of the WRX has always been Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. A balanced, time-tested design, refined through decades of rally experience, it creates uniform stability and delivers an optimal distribution of power for maximum traction on all types of surfaces - from the track to the street to your favorite stretch of twisty dirt road.

Updated Track-Tuned Suspension

The 2022 WRX pushes its razor-sharp handling even further with its upgraded, retuned suspension. Cornering, steering balance, and stability all feel and perform better than ever thanks to upgraded dampers, a stiffer chassis, and high-performance summer tires. The newly available GT trim raises the handling bar even higher with electronically adjustable dampers, allowing driver-controlled damping changes at the touch of a button.

All-New D-Shaped Steering Wheel

Every part of the 2022 WRX cockpit is designed for comfortable, confident high-performance driving, and the all-new D-shaped steering wheel is its centerpiece. With its excellent weight and feel, it gives you ergonomic control and near-instant response from the lightning-quick 13.5:1-ratio dual-pinion steering.

Born to Perform

The 2022 WRX isn't just a sports sedan. It represents all the lessons learned in decades of motorsport competition and technological breakthroughs in performance engineering. It's also one more reason why Kelley Blue Book has named Subaru as a five-time Best Performance Brand winner[276]

Exhilarating Engineering

New 2.4-Liter Direct-Injection Turbocharged SUBARU BOXER Engine

The 2022 WRX features the newest version of the 2.4-liter direct-injection turbocharged SUBARU BOXER engine. The latest in a long line of iconic BOXER power plants, it produces 271 horsepower and features a twin-scroll turbocharger with an electronic wastegate for near-instant boost response and 258 pound-feet of peak torque with a broad, flat power band.

Delivering 30% faster upshifts and 50% faster downshifts, the Subaru Performance Transmission features an upgraded, more aggressive shift logic with a quicker and smarter response to driver input so every trip can be more fun and engaging.

Built on the Subaru Global Platform

For enhanced handling and ride comfort, the 2022 WRX is built on the Subaru Global Platform, which uses extensive high-strength steel for more rigidity, long-lasting quality, almost 30% higher torsional stiffness, and a quieter cabin.

A High-Performing Investment

Owning a WRX is just as smart as it is fun: The WRX has retained its value better than any other vehicle in its class for seven years running, according to ALG[215].

Elevates Every Drive

SUBARU STARLINK® Multimedia with New 11.6-inch Touchscreen Available

The STARLINK Multimedia system features standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration, so all your favorite content is close at hand on every drive. The newly available 11.6-inch touchscreen makes it even easier to access and enjoy all your apps, entertainment, and available navigation.

EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology

EyeSight Driver Assist Technology[104], standard on Limited and GT models equipped with the Subaru Performance Transmission, monitors traffic movement, optimizes cruise control, and warns you when you're swaying outside your lane[116]. The automatic Pre-Collision Braking feature can even apply full braking force and bring you to a complete stop in emergency situations[113]. Automatic Emergency Steering, an all-new feature for 2022, can assist in certain emergency scenarios by steering the vehicle away from an oncoming obstacle when there is a clear path and braking alone may not be enough to avoid an accident[117]. Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering[116] can take some of the stress out of driving by helping with steering, braking, and throttle control - both in daily traffic and on long road trips.
