A long overdue model in Subaru lineup. Still as good as before?

Subaru of America introduced the all-new 2022 WRX with the most advanced features, design, and performance in its nearly 20-year history. The fifth-generation rally icon is powered by a new 271 hp 2.4-liter turbocharged Subaru BOXER® engine that is paired with either a 6-speed manual transmission or new automatic transmission. With available high-definition tablet-style 11.6-inch SUBARU STARLINK® Multimedia system and latest generation EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, the 2022 WRX delivers greater performance, technology, and safety than ever before.

Also new for 2022, the Subaru WRX adds a new top-of-the-line GT trim with a new automatic transmission, the Subaru Performance Transmission, as standard. The new WRX GT offers a first-ever for WRX, new electronically controlled dampers that can tailor the dynamic performance to the driver's preferences with Comfort, Normal, and Sport settings. The Drive Mode Select also offers additional options to configure steering feel, damper settings, SI-Drive settings, and more, with up to 430 different customization options.

For the first time, the WRX is built on the Subaru Global Platform, which offers increased safety, improved dynamics, and reductions in noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH). The 2022 WRX will be available at Subaru retailers in early 2022.

But before fan boy rejoice, as usual, the press photos will typically shown the top spec trim. For entry level WRX, you will get this screen instead... You have been warned. :D

I've had three through the years, starting from STi5 😳

Had to stop when WRX only came with CVT, and STi only as manual..... this just says "new automatic", whatever that means but will it even come to SG?

Nice! Looks purposeful enough as a WRX. 🙂

During my younger days, I was quite affixed to Colin McRae driving Subaru WRX rallies.

Maybe it will.

For JDM STI, have to go PI route.

Look like shit...on the side.

An imitation of last generation Altis but a failure of which.

The hazard light button must be taken from Toyota.

Seats and front still look nice.

Their CVT is actually excellent if you have ever tried it.

Wrx always came with both MT and CVT. Even for this latest model.  But it seems that the highest trim is only for their CVT model. Right now these information are for the US market. Let's see what mi will bring in.

What's with the black wheel arches and trimmings? This isn't some urban crossover wannabe. 

Ugly.
