2022 Subaru WRX Coming Soon to Premier Subaru of Fremont

The Subaru WRX has played an important part in Subaru's history and legacy as a global automaker. The WRX made a huge splash in the world of motor racing and continues to be the frontman for Subaru's global motorsports team. Just under twenty years of setting itself apart from the classic Impreza's and into its entity, the WRX is a highly popular powerhouse that satisfies a driver's loyalty to Subaru as well as their need for speed. Subaru is gearing up for their release of an all-new 2022 Subaru WRX, which is already turning heads in anticipation as the grand reveal comes closer. Take a look at a brief history of the WRX, why it's such a pillar of the racing community, and how the success of recent models can help predict what the newest WRX will bring. 

The first years of the WRX

Subaru released the first WRX for the first time in 1992, setting it apart from its original model, the Subaru Impreza. Like many models at the time for Subaru, the WRX was available in several different configurations including a sedan and hatchback model. The initial models across the world were relatively lackluster, but the tables turned in 1994 with the release of the STI version and its debut in motorsports at the World Rally Championship. The STIs ended up with stronger engineering, higher horsepower, and a more favorable transmission.

The WRX soon gained hot popularity with the 1996 releases that featured higher standard horsepower, American manufacturing, and a sharper exterior that was a call to performance lovers everywhere. Over the years the WRX became a direct competitor to many major brands including Honda, Dodge, Mazda, and many more.

The WRX in Motorsports

The foundation of Subaru's motorsports division heavily emphasizes the development of the WRX and the WRX STI. Generations of the model have helped Subaru earn records in competition, and the company has done extensive research and development on how to further modify each vehicle as well as make many of its features available for the average buyer. You can build and customize your WRX and WRX STI to get the most power out of your vehicle. The team consists of a handful of specific model configurations including the WRX STI VT20r Rally Car, the WRX STI VT19r RallyCross Supercar, and the Gymkhana 2020 WRX STI. Topping out at over 600 horsepower, it's hardly a surprise that Subaru has a foothold in motorsports around the world.

Today's WRX Vehicles

Consumer-friendly models of the WRX have evolved so much throughout the years, and the 2021 model is described as a compact sports sedan. With a maximum of 310 horsepower, sporty exterior, it's a lot more fun than its classification would lead you to believe. The vehicle features Subaru's standard symmetrical all-wheel drive and features the tried-and-true Subaru EyeSight Safety Suite along with Subaru's entertainment system, Subaru StarLink.

As a new generation of WRX's come to the production line for 2022, there is certainly a lot of excitement and speculation on the newest version's specifications. For more information on the 2022 WRX, visit Premier Subaru of Fremont!
