All-new 2022 Subaru WRX Priced From $30,995 in Canada

The 5th generation Subaru WRX has met with some criticism, but it’s already almost forgotten


  • This represents a $1,000 price increase over the 2021 model year.

  • Priced from $29,105 in the US.


Pricing always has a huge impact on perceived vehicle worth. We’re not talking about value, we’re referring to the fact that had Subaru decided to price the new 2022 WRX closer to $35,000, very little would be forgiven. At $30,995, it’s a real contender.

The New 2022 Subaru WRX is Finally Here

Among its niche segment peers, the WRX is actually one of the less expensive hot compact cars and the only one that includes AWD. The all-new Volkswagen GTI is priced from $31,495 while the equally fully revamped Honda Civic Si tips the pricing scale at $33,150. It could be argued that the Mazda3 Sport GS AWD, at $30,065, is a contender but in reality, it’s not.

Furthermore, with 271 horsepower on tap, the WRX also happens to be the most powerful of the lot. The only “thumbs down” that can really be given to the WRX is the “Subaru Performance Transmission” (SPT) or CVT, but thankfully, it’s only an option over the standard 6-speed manual transmission.

There will be three trims to select from including the WRX, the Sport, and the top-trim Sport-tech. Whenever you see “w/eyesight”, that means the SPT is part of the package.
