News 2022 WRX/STI News & Rumors

Next-Generation Subaru WRX Details Emerge - New Interior Upgrades Revealed




We have talked about the next-generation Subaru WRX engine, and arrival date of the new performance models, but not what interior upgrades the new-generation WRX and STI will get. Thanks to an image of the second-generation Subaru Levorg sports wagon from Japan, we are getting an idea of how the new 2022 WRX and STI cabin will look.

Creative311.com, a Japanese website, obtained a new Levorg brochure and published the interior photos. We found the image above on Subaru's Facebook page. The images reveal the latest technology and upgrades coming for the next-generation performance car. We can see a new digital instrument cluster with navigation integration as part of the Starlink infotainment system.

The new WRX will also come with a large tablet-style touch-screen borrowed from the newly-remodeled 2020 Subaru Outback. The old hard buttons are going away, making way for the new multi-media interface that will also offer Apple Car Play and Android Auto integration. Knobs still control the radio volume and tuning.

The second-generation Levorg images reveal the old hand brake is gone and replaced by a space-saving electronic brake located behind the gear shift. The storage bin has been moved forward with two cup holders directly in front, and the A/C vents repositioned. There is also a new chrome accent trim that runs the length of the dashboard.

Itís not a surprise the next-generation Subaru WRX and STI will get new technology inside, but we donít know whatís going to be under the hood. The latest rumors say the STI is getting the new FA24 2.4-liter direct-injection turbocharged Boxer with plenty of upgraded internals from Subaru Tecnica International for added horsepower.

The WRX could get the same powerplant but de-tuned, or a new Levorg-sourced 1.8-liter direct-injection turbocharged Boxer with more horsepower than the current generation performance sports car.

The next-generation 2022 Subaru WRX and STI will likely get a very similar-looking cabin as the second-generation Levorg sports wagon. The new 2021 Subaru WRX will make its world premiere sometime in April 2021. Stay tuned.

Would the 2021 WRX /STI be a continuation of this current generation?

Oof, that center screen is UGLY. I know that all cars are going to have massive screens in now, but this might be the worst looking version I've ever seen.

Maybe the STI will skip it because racecar

Next gen will have a wrap around industry first 42” screen. Then the other mfr’s will compete, 55” then 60”. Then someone will partner up with Samsung and have a screen that wraps around the entire interior of the vehicle so the little ones in the back seat area will have touch screens everywhere for all their apps! It will be self driving too with McDonald’s drone service delivered right to you window so you can have your sack meal disgusting burgers and fries delivered as you drive or the car drives you, right down the freeway. Then maybe someone will go Idiocracy on it and have seats in the car will built in commodes and plastic integrated straws for your cola/beer. You can sit in the car, like Idiocracy, eat, drink, ****, piss and not move.

I kind of like Mickey D’s double quarter pounder with cheese. This coming from someone who hadn’t eaten more than a handful of fast food burgers in the past decade. Damn you, COVID, and my lowering standards! :sobs into my single quarter pounders:

I would say take it with a grain of salt, but the Tarted Up Impreza renders of the STI prior to its reveal in 2014 weren't that far off either...

If it looks like that I'd be interested, but only if it has a newer, more efficient engine and drive train.

https://creative311.com/?p=99206 I hold out hope that they will follow the concept with the image in this article. there are very slight and more production viable differences with this pic of the rear and side profile. it may keep the side profile and very similar interior, but during development did they go with a more radical approach with the wrx and STI exterior to actually follow the concept instead of the levorg which had its own concept?

WTH is a Laverg?

Based on the car behind him(his), I wouldn't care what he likes in "looks" of a car. First he complains that Subaru has gotten away from where they came from in looks, then complains about the taillights that he compares to a past Legacy(where they came from?). Which might not even be what they are. Since when have we EVER seen a "finished" product before even seeing a camo'd car on the road?

Toyota owns 20% of Subaru Corp? And have been using their screens going back to 2015 at least? And, no. I am not a fan of sharing certain things from other manufacturers; but, it is what it is.

If it is the same screen used in the 2020 Legacy/Outback, then it is a Denso/BlackBerry system. Legacy/Outback are the first to use it.

Is there any manual car that has portrait screen type layout? Wondering if likely someone could accidentally punch the screen while shifting gears.

Tesla is a performance car

I like the big screen on the Levorg/WRX and our Teslas. It is all you need (and a tach for the WRX)

Tesla is not a performance car to me. Weighs too much. Straight line speed is neat, but corners matter just as much. Where I ride and drive, the Tesla would need to be towed. No superchargers in the twisties. That makes it a city car.



Not everyone wants a flat screen in their car dude.

Tesla isn't a performance car. It just happens to perform well at things inherent to its drivetrain.

Once the new Roadster comes out, then we'll see.

It may weigh a lot, but has the power to overcome it. You really can't tell that the car is heavy when driving, and the low center of gravity makes the car very good at handling (at least on normal roads).

You drive over 300 miles round trip to go for a cruise? Teslas are far from City cars, they have about the same range as my old 2018 STI.

Would you prefer a bumpy screen? jk. While a few tactile inputs are nice, you don't need thousands of buttons like most ICE. Subaru is good about keeping knobs/buttons to a minimum, compared to ICE, especially Honda/Acura (a button for everything).

Is an M5 a performance car? It's a big boat with a lot of power.

Honda didnít even have a knob for the radio volume on the civic. They have too FEW buttons, not to many.

I think you need to think about your questions. You've obviously little experience in this space. Hard driving you aren't getting a 300 mile charge going in and out of turns, wfo pulls, etc.



I have driven the P85D, the P90D, and a Model 3, yes I can tell the weight especially on the S. I have also been DD'ing an electric car for 6.5 years. There isn't much you have for me in the way of information. I'm happy you are a happy with your purchase, but as I said, where I ride and drive for fun, any Tesla made would end up getting towed. It wouldn't make it.
