Better than Toyota GR Corolla? 2022 Subaru WRX pricing and specs reveal rally-bred performance for an affordable price

Subaru Australia has opened the order book for the new generation WRX, with pricing starting from $44,990 before on-road costs for the sedan and $49,990 for the WRX Sportwagon.

Powered by a 2.4-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder Boxer engine, the 2022 WRX punches out 202kW/350Nm across all four wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox, or a continuously variable transmission.

This puts the WRX in line with hot hatches like the Ford Focus ST, Hyundai i30 N and VW Golf GTI, while the Sportwagon body style competes against the Skoda Octavia RS wagon.

Starting with the sedan, the WRX is available in three grades, the unnamed base variant, the RS and the top-spec tS, the latter being only available with a CVT.

The larger boot version is also available in three trims, the unnamed point of entry, the mid-spec GT and the flagship tS, although no manual is offered with the Sportwagon.

Standard equipment includes dual-zone climate control, a flat-bottom steering wheel, an 11.6-inch multimedia touchscreen.

Safety systems for adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, autonomous emergency braking, speed signal recognition, forward collision warning are also widespread – although these features are only confirmed on CVT-equipped models.

Going up the grade, buyers will also get a driver monitoring system, drive mode selector and adaptive dampers.

More details will emerge closer to the local launch of the WRX, which is slated for May.
