- 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.
