Subaru of America, Inc. today announced pricing on the all-new 2022 Subaru WRX. The fifth-generation sports car comes standard with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and is powered by a new 2.4-liter turbocharged Subaru BOXER® engine. Newly available for this year is the tablet-style 11.6-inch SUBARU STARLINK® Multimedia Plus infotainment system and the latest generation EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology. The 2022 WRX arrives in retailers this Spring and is available in four trim levels: Base, Premium, Limited, and new GT.
The WRX lineup comes standard with a new 2.4-liter turbocharged Subaru BOXER® engine, delivering 271 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and broader torque curve with 258 lb-ft of torque from 2,000-5,200 rpm. The increased displacement, along with a turbocharger equipped with an electronically controlled wastegate and air bypass valves, improves responsiveness, and acceleration.
Every WRX is equipped with legendary Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and Active Torque Vectoring. The standard 6-speed manual transmission has optimized gear ratios and refined shift quality. The new Subaru Performance Transmission (SPT) is available on all trim levels (standard on GT). The automatic SPT offers faster up and down shifts and incorporates adaptive shift control that can quickly respond to perform rev-matching downshifts under braking, maintain the ideal ratio through corners, and respond faster on corner exit.
The adoption of the Subaru Global Platform for WRX results in a substantial upgrade in ride and handling performance thanks to increased chassis stiffness. The enhanced platform, now with full inner frame construction and increased use of structural adhesives, delivers a 14 percent increase in front lateral rigidity, 28 percent increase in overall torsional rigidity, and a 75 percent increase in suspension mounting point rigidity.
The 2022 WRX has a wide-body design that projects an aggressive stance and bold new look. At the front, Subaru’s signature hexagonal grille is widened and paired with compact LED headlights and a broad hood scoop to emphasize the wide and low look. The rear deck lid integrates a low-profile rear spoiler in matching body color. Rear taillights are designed to glow with a look reminiscent of volcanic magma.
All SUBARU STARLINK® Multimedia systems for the 2022 WRX are equipped with a high-resolution touchscreen; on-screen controls for audio, HVAC, and vehicle features; and combination meter integration. Smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, and Bluetooth® hands-free phone and audio streaming connectivity; AM/FM stereo; Rear Vision Camera; SiriusXM® radio and Travel Link®; and HD Radio® are also standard.
Select 2022 WRX trim levels are equipped with the latest generation of SUBARU STARLINK Safety and Security. Available packages offer access to emerge
