The 2022 WRX is nearly upon us, and Subaru is whetting everyone’s appetite with a couple of photos and a short teaser video full of quick cuts of the sport sedan drifting about, mostly obscured by dust. There’s simply no other way to tease a new WRX.
As you’d suspect we never get a clear look at the car in the clip, which you can see in full on Subaru’s website. For that, we’ll have to wait until the New York International Auto Show kicks off on August 19.
What we can see are small details in very snap, close-up shots. And these details in and of themselves are kind of interesting, because they deviate from the stereotypical WRX getup. The car in the video is orange, for one — like that pastel-toned, glossy shade you sometimes see on Crosstreks. (It’s almost what you’d get on a Hawkeye Spec C Type RA-R, too.)
