All-New Subaru WRX Will Debut at New York Auto Show

All-new WRX model teased

  • First all-new WRX since 2014

  • Debut set for NYIAS on August 19


An all-new Subaru WRX is finally almost here. The automaker’s rally special is set to debut at the New York International Auto Show in August, marking the first all-new WRX since the launch of the standalone model back in 2014.

Subaru isn’t showing us much about the new model other than some super-cool shots of the new car blasting through a dry lakebed and kicking up an impressive cloud of dust. And slow-motion clods of dirt thrown from all four tires, making this the best way ever to tease this turbocharged rally hero.

The car in the clip isn’t big on showing us details, but a few bits do filter through the dust. Like that bright orange that looks more Crosstrek than anything found on a previous WRX model. There’s also some cladding around the wheel arches, and this might have us a bit worried. Since cladding is usually reserved for crossovers and crossover-aspiring wagons.

Don’t expect the look to stray too far from the rest of Subaru’s offerings. Even the all-new Impreza, Outback, and Forester needed a side-by-side comparison to really be sure which you’re looking at.

The 2022 WRX is also rumoured to get a new engine for the first time since approximately forever. A version of the 2.4L from the Ascent (as well as available on Outback) is likely, but with the wick turned up appropriately for the WRX.

To see the full thing, wait for August 19th and the big reveal.
