2022 Subaru WRX to unveil at the New York International Auto Show

KUALA LUMPUR: The 2021 New York International Auto Show is set to be staged from August 20 to 29 with the new concepts and production car models. And, one of them is the 2022 Subaru WRX sports sedan, which is approaching its 30th year in production. While confirming its global debut at the auto show, Subaru released a teaser video showcasing the new rally sedan in the American desert with a cloud of dust all around it.

The 2022 Subaru WRX teaser unveils a few things in a series of quick views, which include the sedan’s black wheels, rear diffuser, and new dual exhaust outlets. The clip also provided a glance at the car’s tachometer whose red line appears to start at 6,100 rpm. We can also hear the unique sound of the turbo engine in the video.

Just like the Subaru Impreza, the upcoming WRX will also underpin the brand’s Global Platform that may lead to higher dimensions. As per the Japanese media reports, the sports sedan will measure 4650 mm in length, 1850 mm in width, and 1450 mm in height, with a wheelbase measuring 2670 mm.

We also expect to see an FA24 2.4-litre flat-four under the bonnet of the performance sedan. The same engine can be found under the Subaru Ascent, Outback, and Legacy models where it delivers a maximum power output of 260 hp and a peak torque of 375 Nm. However, for the WRX, a bump in output figures is expected. The reports suggest an output of 300 horsepower.

And as far as the transmission is concerned, the new Subaru WRX is likely to be offered with a six-speed manual or a CVT, just like its predecessor.

No clue is there about the interior changes, however, for safety, we expect a whole pack of advanced EyeSight driver assistance features, bundling autonomous emergency braking, lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control, and driver attention monitoring.
