The 2022 WRX will share its platform with the current, and it'll look similar to the that debuted at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show. Don't get your hopes up for a five-door WRX, however. We have no reason to believe Subaru will offer anything other than a four-door sedan body style.
Expect standard all-wheel drive,(with an optional automatic) and turbo-four power. The WRX is expected to get a version of the 2.4-liter turbo flat-4 used in the , and .

Since the 2022 WRX will make its debut in September, there's a good chance it'll go on sale before the end of the year. Of course, that also means a big-wingedis imminent, and we're super stoked for that one, too.
Update, Aug. 24: The 2022 WRX was supposed to debut last week, but on Tuesday Subaru tweeted the new Sept. 10 reveal date. This story has been updated to reflect this information.
