Here's What You Need to Know about the All-New 2022 Subaru WRX

The new Subaru WRX is designed to appeal to enthusiasts of sport compact cars, but it’s also meant to be a daily driver that anyone can enjoy. It’s an excellent combination of performance and practicality, but don’t take our word for it—here are some things you need to know about the all-new WRX.

What Is New about the Subaru WRX 2022?

The Subaru WRX, an iconic and high-performance sport compact, has been redesigned for the 2022 model year. The unique bodywork and new platform for WRX are packed with a powerful turbocharged flat-four cylinder engine. For its price, it is considered reasonable, knowing the power and style it holds.

Key Features

The manual and continuously variable automatic (CVT) transmission of the WRX is loaded with 271 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The all-wheel-drive system propels the WRX from zero to 60 mph in 5.4 seconds. The manual transmission has six-speeds, while the automatic (CVT) version has its three drive mode settings with a paddle shifter on the steering wheel.

Wheels and Brakes

The Subaru WRX has a reputation for being one of the sportiest small cars out there, and you’ll quickly see why once you get behind the wheel of the 2022 model. Thanks to its agile handling, solid road grip from its standard all-wheel-drive system, and strong brakes, this sporty sedan is sure to leave a lasting impression.

Let's Look at the Interior

The Subaru WRX 2022 has similarities to the older version, except it has new details such as the carbon-fiber-like and red stitching on its seats that make it look sporty. Its thick-rimmed steering wheel is flat-bottomed, making it more comfortable to grip. 

You can access the trunk from the inside with a capacity of 12.5-cubic-foot trunk space that will give you ample space for your belongings.

Infotainment System

Every WRX comes with an infotainment system that is touch-based. The lower versions of this variant boast a 7.0-inch display, while the high-end versions have 11.7 vertical screens. While almost all of the inputs rely primarily on touch, the stereo and climate systems are controlled manually.

An 11-speaker Harman-Kardon sound system is also available that provides a more premium experience. It includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, making it easy to connect your phone for music streaming or navigation purposes.

Fuel Usage

The WRX with a manual transmission gets 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. The automatic-equipped WRX is estimated to get 19/25 mpg city/highway.

Safety on the Road

To keep drivers safe on the road, Subaru has developed Eyesight Driver Assist Technology for its newest WRX models. Eyesight includes Subaru Performance Transmission and Pre-Collision Braking features that can automatically apply full braking power and bring you to a complete stop in emergency situations. New for 2022, the Automatic Emergency Steering feature will steer the vehicle away from obstacles when braking alone is not enough to avoid a collision.


For those who love driving and who aren't afraid to push the limits of their car–but who also want all the safety and efficiency of a modern automobile–the new 2022 Subaru WRX delivers on so many levels.
