What makes the Subaru WRX 2022 different?

The sport-tuned Subaru WRX comes standard with all-wheel drive, one of the big differences from sports cars. You won’t find the sports car in the garage when the weather is bad. They are driven year-round in conditions of snow, humidity, mud and ice.

But the 2022 Subaru WRX brings something unique. It is more than all-wheel drive that sets it apart from all other models. It’s called balance. The boxer’s flat-four engine powers the WRX, and it’s not offered in any other sports car priced under $31,000.

The horizontally opposite design allows the engine to sit lower in the chassis lowering the center of gravity, giving the sporty-tuned WRX optimum balance and optimum driving dynamics. It’s what sets the brand apart from all other automakers.

The WRX symmetric all-wheel drive system works in harmony with the vehicle’s overall balance, providing stability you won’t find in other sports cars. With the WRX, it’s all about synergy, how the car responds to driver inputs, overall driving dynamics and stability.

The WRX 2022 is still a good value sports car. What is the price of the 2022 WRX?

A trim level 2022 WRX 6-speed manual starts at $30,600. WRX with Subaru Performance Transmission (SPT) is $32,450, WRX Premium 6-speed manual is $33,100, WRX Premium SPT is $35,150, WRX Limited 6-speed manual is $37,490, WRX Limited The SPT is $39,740, and the WRX GT is $43,390. The price includes destination and delivery fees ($995).

New WRX sales are up two months in a row

Subaru delivered 2,304 new WRX sedans to US customers compared to 2,194 in August 2021, an increase of 5.0 percent. Last month, the WRX index rose 9.8 percent.
