The 2022 Subaru WRX will also be available as a station wagon in some markets. It should have been called Plus, but is called the Sportswagon.
The new Subaru WRX debuts as a classic four-door, but will also be offered as a station wagon in some markets – the Australian one. That is not entirely new, because the Impreza WRX of the first and second generation was also sold as a handy Plus. That name is not reused, this break will be in the catalog as Subaru WRX Sportswagon. A little disapointing.
If you look closely at the Subaru WRX Sportswagon, you will see a Levorg in sportswear. And that shouldn’t come as a surprise, because you could also think of the new WRX as a sporty sedan version of the Subaru Levorg. More important is the drive unit, as the Sportswagon has the same engine as the new Subaru WRX: a pressure-fed 2.4 liter boxer engine that puts 280 hp and 350 Nm on all four wheels.
