- Subaru has announced pricing for the new 2022 WRX sedan.
- It starts at $30,100 and ranges up to $42,890 for the top GT model.
- A six-speed manual transmission is standard and a CVT automatic is an $1850–$2250 option.
The new 2022 Subaru WRX is more expensive than before—especially the new range-topping GT trim level that crests $40,000. The WRX’s base price rises $1680 to $30,100, and the new model will also offer $32,600 Premium and $36,990 Limited trim levels in addition to the new $42,890 WRX GT that is unfortunately only offered with the optional CVT automatic.
#SavetheManuals enthusiasts shouldn’t worry too much, though, because a six-speed manual transmission is still standard on all other trim levels, with the CVT available as an $1850–$2250 option on the base, Premium, and Limited. All-wheel drive and a 271-horsepower turbocharged 2.4-liter flat-four are standard across the board.
Certain performance options are reserved for the automatic-only GT, including adaptive dampers and larger 18-inch wheels (17-inchers are standard on other models). The GT also has desirable Recaro front seats and additional drive modes compared with the base cars.
Subaru previously told us that automatic-transmission WRX models were affected by supply-chain issues, so you may have better luck finding a car with a clutch pedal as they start arriving at dealerships. Subaru is now taking reservations on its website but hasn’t said exactly when deliveries will start.
