The latest generation Subaru WRX is now powered by a new 271 bhp 2.4-litre engine. The car is built on the Subaru’s Global Platform that engages extensive high-strength steel for more rigidity, superior quality, and almost 30% greater torsional rigidity, as well as a quieter cabin.
Exterior of the Subaru WRX
At the front, the Subaru’s signature hexagonal grille is coupled with compact LED headlamps and a broad front hood scoop that accentuate the car’s wide and low dimensions. The plasticky fender flares with carbon fibre-ish details are what stand out the most.
A closer look at the rear of the WRX will reveal beefier fenders that bulge so dramatically. When combined with those C-shaped taillights, one might mistake the new model for a larger and broader BRZ.
Interior of the Subaru WRX
In the cabin, you will notice an 11.6-inch vertical, tablet-style touchscreen infotainment system. The system comes standard with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity. If you fancy black, you’ll like the 2022 Subaru WRX model’s interior. That’s the only colour it comes in, with red contrast stitching and simulated carbon fibre trim.
The 2022 WRX is a performance car that can fit your whole life into one vehicle. With its 60/40 split-folding rear seat and 12.5 cubic feet of luggage space, you can take it to the track, the weekend, or wherever the road leads.
Performance of the Subaru WRX
The 2022 WRX features the newest version of the 2.4-litre 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.
All-wheel drive and a six-speed manual are standard on Subaru’s models. Additionally, the Rex is available with Subaru’s Performance Transmission (SPT). They come equipped with paddle shifters and an 8-speed manual shifting mode. Subaru claims that its new SPT will upshift 30% faster, downshift 50% faster, and eliminate the “rubber band” effect that has turned off many enthusiasts from CVTs.
