Press Drive
Our press drive began in Sonoma County with hours of northern California backroads through redwood forests before connecting to Highway 1 and a lunch stop at Point Arena Lighthouse. With temperatures in the 40s, many of the shaded roads were damp with occasional leaves and dirt on the surface. The new WRX proved to be as fun to drive as we always remembered — stable and controlled, with smooth power delivery coming out of corners even when surfaces were rough, slippery or both. And even though the previous model was stiffer than its predecessor, this 2022 WRX feels stiffer, and the new suspension tuning feels less jarring although it’s still firm. The electric power steering is quick and precise although it lacks a lot of direct feedback.
