Subaru Introduces Revised 2022 WRX
It was supposed to debut at the New York Auto Show at the end of August, but the cancellation of that event due to the pandemic put an end to that. Now it's done, however: the next-generation WRX has been introduced by Subaru.
As per Subaru tradition, those expecting a revolutionary change in terms of design will be disappointed The lines of the new model are very recognizable, which will please some of course.
More interesting is that this new generation is a little more powerful; but above all, it is based on a new platform. A "sportier" GT variant has even been announced, but so far that’s for the U.S. - we'll have to see what the equipment looks like on this side of the border. Sometimes manufacturers have little surprises in store for us, good or bad.
