A Tradition of Motorsport Performance

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.

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.

Exhilarating Engineering

New 2.4-Liter Turbocharged 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.

Standard 6-Speed Manual Transmission

The 2022 WRX gives you total control over your performance with a quick-shifting 6-speed manual transmission controlled through a short-throw shifter.

Elevates Every Drive

Subaru STARLINK® Multimedia

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, 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. The automatic Pre-Collision Braking feature can even apply full braking force and bring you to a complete stop in emergency situations. 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. Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering 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.



2022 Subaru WRX GT

Recaro Performance Front Seats

The perfect platform for high-performance driving, standard Recaro front seats provide comfort and support, corner after corner.

18-inch Alloy Wheels

The WRX GT turns heads at every stoplight with the layered spoke design of its 18-inch alloy wheels with exclusive matte-gray finish.

2022 Subaru WRX Engine and Drivetrain

As was mentioned above, the 2.4L turbocharged flat-four Boxer engine under the hood of the 2022 WRX has been upgraded. The WRX now pushes out 271 horsepower and 253 lb-ft of torque. The turbocharger is paired with an electronically controlled wastegate and air bypass valves that improve acceleration and responsiveness. The engine is linked to a 6-speed manual transmission refined and has optimized gear ratios to enhance shift quality. The two-pedal option is the all-new Subaru Performance Transmission. This new automatic transmission offers 30-percent faster upshifts from 2nd to 3rd gear, and 50-percent faster downshifts from 3rd-2nd gear. The automatic transmission also utilizes adaptive shift control to respond with rev-matching quickly downshifts under braking, maintain the ideal ratio through corners and respond faster on corner exits. In addition, the automatic transmission comes with an 8-speed manual mode with paddle shifters. As always, the Subaru WRX features Subaru's legendary Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system for unparalleled control.

2022 Subaru WRX Exterior Design

The all-new WRX has an upgraded wide-body design to offer a more aggressive stance for a bold new look. The front fascia features Subaru's signature hexagonal grille with compact LED headlights that give off a fearsome glare. The front hood scoop has been broadened to highlight the low and wide appearance. The exterior linework around all edges of the vehicle emphasizes the WRX's performance and strength. Designers shaved off five pounds by making the front fenders out of aluminum. The new molded wheel arches have an aerodynamic texture to limit wind resistance. The rear decklid features an integrated low-profile spoiler that matches the body color. The taillights have been redesigned to glow with a look of volcanic magma. From every angle, the 2022 WRX boasts its rally performance heritage.

2022 Subaru WRX Interior Design

The 2022 WRX comes with a black interior contrasted by red stitching and carbon fiber accents. These design features vocalize the car's performance abilities. When you enter the WRX, you'll get the high-performance feeling from the rally-inspired flat-bottom, leather-wrapped steering wheel and the aluminum pedals. The WRX's cockpit is driver-focused, and entry-level trims feature two touchscreens on the center stack, one for infotainment like audio and navigation and the other for climate controls. Meanwhile, upper-level trims feature a tablet-like 11.6-inch vertical touchscreen display for the Subaru Starlink Multimedia software. This features a split-screen option to display two applications at once. For instance, audio and navigation can be displayed simultaneously. In addition, the new slim HVAC vents give the interior a modern look and extend the sporty feeling. The 2022 WRX's interior does not lack modern technology, comfort, or style!
