What is the WRX?
Subaru's hotly anticipated 2022 WRX follows the successful original recipe of a sport compact sedan fitted with a punchy, turbocharged flat-four engine that powers all four wheels. The outgoing generation lasted longer than usual — from 2014 to 2021 — and was sorely in need of an update. This redesign is wonderful news for its existing, and potentially new, fan base. It'll face off against primarily front-wheel-drive competition, including the Honda Civic Si and Hyundai Elantra N. The Mazda 3 with its optional turbocharged engine and all-wheel drive is another possible rival.
