The Subaru WRX STI is an all-wheel drive sport compact sedan based on the Subaru Impreza. It split from the Impreza in 2014, and has continued on since then as a separate model. Apart from some mild refreshments in between, the WRX received no significant update. The STI is the performance variant of the WRX. The year 2022 marks the entry of the 2nd generation of the WRX sedan, with a completely new body, exterior and interior design and a more powerful engine setup.
The Subaru WRX sedan is widely popular in the US: thanks to its affordable price, the level of performance offered and the kind of accessibility around the WRX. The STI takes everything on the WRX (that’s already slightly above normal) and places it at an even higher level. The STI is faster, corners flatter and brakes as required. The 2022 Subaru WRX STI is expected to be powered by an all-new engine, replacing the 2.0L with a 2.4L. The pricing is estimated at around upwards of $40,000 for the STI. The Subaru WRX STI goes up against the 2021 Honda Civic Type-R, the 2021 Hyundai Sonata N-line and the 2021 Toyota Camry TRD.
