Under the Hood
The 2022 Subaru WRX is powered by a new turbocharged 2.4-liter engine producing 271 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, combined with a standard 6-speed manual transmission or available CVT Subaru Performance Transmission. The new engine is the most powerful standard WRX powerplant ever (not including STI versions), although it is only rated at 3 horsepower more than the outgoing model (with the same torque rating). According to Subaru, the SPT offers 30 percent faster upshifts and 50 percent faster downshifts and includes adaptive shift control for rev-matching downshifts during braking.
