  • Subaru has released another teaser for the 2022 WRX, which will debut September.
  • It was originally to be shown at the New York auto show, but the event was canceled.
  • We expect the new WRX to go on sale in the U.S. later this year.

UPDATE 8/24/21: Subaru has rescheduled the debut of the 2022 WRX, which will now take place September 10. We have updated this article accordingly.

The trickle of information continues about the new 2022 Subaru WRX with the latest teaser photo and a video clip that shows the new sport compact kicking up dust. We also now know that the new turbocharged, all-wheel-drive sedan will make its official debut in just a few short weeks, on September 10.

The teaser image shows the new WRX in red with a cloud of dust surrounding it. The video posted on Subaru's website is a bit more revealing, showing a few quick views of the car's details including black wheels, dual exhaust tips, and a rear diffuser. You can also hear the distinctive growl of a turbocharged flat-four engine in the clip and briefly see the tachometer.

We expect the new WRX to have a turbocharged 2.4-liter flat-four that should make more power than the current model's 268-hp turbo 2.0-liter engine. The standard WRX could even approach 300 horsepower, if current rumors are any indication. An even more powerful WRX STI with a more extreme suspension setup and visual add-ons should follow soon after the standard model.

Look for more information to come soon on the new WRX, which will likely go on sale in the U.S. by the end of the year with a starting price somewhere around $30,000.
