Subaru Corporation recently unveiled its 2022 WRX, this was the global U.S. model and specifications may change for the local edition.
Equipped with its symmetrical all-wheel drive (AWD) system built around Subaru Boxer engine, the WRX is the symbol of the company's AWD sport performance. Ever since the first model hit the streets back in 1992, the WRX has gained worldwide support as a car combining sport performance with the practicality of a four-door sedan.
The power unit has been upgraded to 2.4 litre direct injection Subaru turbo, installed on a rigid body and chassis built on the Subaru global platform with full inner frame construction to enhances responsiveness and ride comfort and an updated version of EyeSight.
According to the company's PR, the "three-dimensional, deeply carved shape starting from the hexagon grille, wide and low front bumper and the bulging fenders express the dynamic feeling and raise expectations for superior driving performance.
"Black trim pieces including the sport side garnishes on the front and rear fenders and the side sill spoilers feature hexagon patterned aerodynamic texture that reduces air resistance. Air outlets opened at the front sport side garnishes and each side of the rear bumper enhance the driving stability, as well as the exterior appeal."
The new WRX is scheduled to go on sale in the US in 2022. A confirmed launch date for Australia, however, has not been announced but the local company anticipate WRX being in showrooms in second quarter of 2022.
