2022 Subaru WRX
It’s been 20 years since the rally-inspired WRX first arrived for the U.S. market. The fifth-generation debuts for the 2022 model year, built on a stiffer Subaru Global Platform and powered by a turbocharged 2.4-liter flat 4-cylinder Boxer engine. In its first two decades on American roads, Subaru sold more than 400,000 WRXs — a respectable number for a performance model. The WRX has also helped raise the stature of the Subaru brand, leading to sales of other models not directly associated with the automaker’s World Rally success. The newest version of the WRX is scheduled to arrive in spring 2022, and Subaru invited us to be among the first to drive the latest iteration.
