All-New 2022 Subaru WRX Teased

The all-new Subaru WRX is finally and officially on its way


  • The image gives little away other than the required hood scoop.

  • Subaru’s teaser site tells only that the premiere is coming.


The current-generation WRX and WRX STI are the last Subaru vehicles to not be assembled on the company’s global platform. Despite its “age”, the pair of performance compact cars remain popular but anticipation for the new WRX has been growing for some time. Finally, Subaru shares something about the new WRX.

And it’s admittedly not much. The teaser image shows a WRX with a mountain backdrop and a setting sun. The information that can be extracted from the image is limited to the following: The hood scoop is back (that was not going to change) and that the introductory car will be a sedan. This does not mean that a hatchback is out of the question but it seems highly unlikely.

Next-Generation Subaru WRX Debut Expected In October

And lastly, the new 2022 WRX’s overall shape looks to be extremely similar to the outgoing car. Motor1 has lightened the provided image and in the process has discovered the similarities between the two generations.

According to Subaru’s site, “The legend of the WRX gets an all-new, even more thrilling chapter.” That could be, in part at least, the result of the reported addition of the brand’s turbocharged 2.4-litre 4-cylinder engine which should provide at least 260 horsepower.
