NEW 2022 Subaru WRX



Rally-inspired sport compact cars are on the verge of extinction, but the new 2022 Subaru WRX aims to reignite interest for this enthusiast-focused breed. With the adoption of a new architecture aimed at better driving dynamics as well as the addition of more powerful 271-hp turbocharged flat-four engine, the new WRX promises to be an improvement over the outgoing version. Its contemporary interior design and 11.6-inch touchscreen infotainment system also now better align with newer rivals that include the Hyundai Elantra N and the VW Golf GTI and Jetta GLI. Of course, among this group, only the WRX features all-wheel drive. Without the muscle to take on the 315-hp VW Golf R, Subaru fans must eagerly await the reveal of the more powerful STI model. Until then, the 2022 WRX and its bold bodywork give enthusiasts something fast and fresh to be excited about.

What’s New for 2022?

The 2022 Subaru WRX is the latest generation of the well-known, all-wheel-drive sport compact. It rides on a new platform, boasts more distinctive bodywork, and is motivated by a larger and slightly more powerful turbocharged 2.4-liter flat-four engine. Subaru hasn’t yet r

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

Under the WRX’s hood is a turbocharged 2.4-liter flat-four-cylinder engine. Its 271 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque routes through either a standard six-speed manual or a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Per tradition, every WRX has all-wheel drive. Those who opt for the automatic, which can also be controlled via paddle shifters on the steering wheel, can also select from three different drive-mode settings. The auto-only GT trim also comes with adaptive dampers. A set of 17- or 18-inch wheels shod with summer performance tires are also available. We’ve driven the new WRX and appreciated its smoother ride and improved refinement. But most importantly, it’s still very entertaining to drive. Expect the forthcoming WRX STI to have more track-focused equipment and possibly as much as 400 horsepower.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

Inside, the WRX looks a lot like other contemporary Subaru models, except that it’s dressed up with carbon-fiber-like accents and red contrast stitching. There’s a thick-rimmed, flat-bottomed steering wheel as well as a set of analog gauges. The top-tier GT trim comes with heavily bolstered Recaro front seat covered in microsuede. The trunk can be accessed from inside the car via the 60/40 split-folding rear seat.

Infotainment and Connectivity

Every WRX comes with a vertically oriented 11.6-inch touchscreen infotainment system. While it relies primarily on touch inputs, it does have some physical controls for the climate system and stereo. An 11-speaker Harman Kardon sound system is also available. Otherwise, the WRX’s list of standard multimedia features include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

The WRX is available with a variety of popular driver-assistance technology, but such equipment is only offered on models with the automatic transmission. For more information about the WRX’s crash-test results, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites. Key safety features include:

  •  Available forward-collision warning and automated emergency braking
  •  Available lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist
  •  Available adaptive cruise control

    • I love auto lux! They put me in my dream car and the absolute best price! I truly cannot believe the wonderful deal I got! Zorik was so patient and helpful and kindly answered all my questions and addressed my concerns. This is the ONLY way to get a car! It literally took me 20 min to return my previous lease, sign paperwork, and hop in my new wheels. I\'ll never go anywhere else. Auto Lux will always have me as a customer!!! Thanks So much Zorik!

    • Six months ago we dealt with Auto Lux Sales and Leasing Company. Last time we got Toyota Prius and are very happy with the auto and the leasing requirements. This time, the focus of our attention was Chevrolet cruse. On the right date we came for the auto but on the last moment sales Manager, showed us an incredible option: Chevrolet Trax, at this moment the only car available. And it was just the color we wanted. Eventually we got this automobile. Thank you Auto Lux !!! For $145 per month, without down payment ,for 24 months, automobile in LT package !Roman G
