The Subaru WRX is a new machine for 2022, kicking off the road-going rally racer's fifth generation. It debuted in September 2021 to mixed reviews, and now we have official pricing for the entire 2022 WRX family. Will these figures alter the opinions of WRX fans and potential buyers regarding the latest model?
Pricing for the 2022 Subaru WRX starts at $30,100, For that, you get a six-speed manual transmission connected to the new turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, developing 271 horsepower (202 kilowatts) and 258 pound-feet (349 Newton-meters) of torque. For the record, that's a $1,680 increase over the outgoing model which offered 268 hp. Opting for the automatic Subaru Performance Transmission (SPT) elevates the starting price to $31,950.
