2022 Subaru WRX Exterior

The Subaru WRX features a rally-inspired and bold exterior design. from the front end, it has a menacing front grille and squinty led headlights giving it a more aggressive look. Giving it an even more athletic stance are the flared fenders with functional air vents and hexagonal wheel arches.

The WRX wagon rides on narrower, less aggressive Yokohama Blue Earth GT 225/45/18 tyres. The sedan rides on considerably superior Dunlop SP Sport Maxx 245/40/18 tread, in keeping with its more intentful nature. As a result, the wagon’s front (1550mm versus 1560mm) and rear (1550mm vs 1560mm) tracks are narrower (1545mm vs 1570mm).
