The all-new 2022 Subaru WRX is here to take rally-born, high-performance driving further than ever before, with a new, more powerful turbocharged SUBARU BOXER engine, an upgraded track-tuned suspension, the legendary grip of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, and a resculpted, athletic exterior that takes inspiration from its championship motorsport heritage with an eye to the future. The WRX represents decades of rally racing experience translated and re-engineered for unleashed power, precision handling, and thrilling performance.  

Rally and Motorsport DNA 

A Championship Pedigree

Racing has always been the ultimate test of vehicle engineering and driver skill, and rally is racing’s toughest crucible. With challenging routes on and off real public roads that mix multiple types of surfaces with arduous climbs and daunting corners, rally demands relentless traction, precise control, and plenty of power. In other words, the perfect match for Subaru performance engineering and Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. The 2022 WRX was born out of rally and inspired by generations of Subaru rally cars, which have carried Subaru Motorsports USA to 14 of the last 15 U.S. National Rally Championship titles, a rallycross championship in 2019, and the American Rally Association Overall Championship for 2021.

Subaru 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.

Standard on: All models

Reengineered Track-Tuned Suspension 

The 2022 WRX pushes its razor-sharp handling even further with its reengineered suspension. New for 2022, the rear anti-roll bar is now mounted directly to the chassis to provide increased roll control and improved ride. Cornering, steering balance, and stability are all enhanced 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 changes at the touch of a button.

D-Shaped Steering Wheel

Every part of the 2022 WRX cockpit is designed for comfortable, confident high-performance driving, and the 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.

Aggressive, Rally-Inspired Design 

With its dramatically flared fenders with functional air vents, a 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.

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 a five-time Best Performance Brand winner[3] .

Engineered to Thrill 

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.

EyeSight Driver Assist Technology 

EyeSight has been found to reduce rear-end crashes with injuries by up to 85%[8]. EyeSight Driver Assist Technology[9], monitors traffic movement, optimizes cruise control, and warns you when you're swaying outside your lane[10]. The automatic Pre-Collision Braking feature can even apply full braking force and bring you to a complete stop in emergency situations[11]. Automatic Emergency Steering can help you avoid a collision by providing automatic steering and pre-collision braking support if it determines there's enough space to intervene[12]. Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering[13] 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.
