Subaru’s 2022 WRX performance sedan follows in earlier version’s footsteps

LOS ANGELES (KABC) — Subaru has an all-new car for 2022 that’s also a bit of an automotive legend. The Subaru WRX is a high-performance sedan with a sort of cult following, and its roots go back to the dawn of the millennium.

It was early 2001 when Subaru originally brought the WRX to the U.S., after it had been on sale in Asia and Europe for years. More than two decades after that original North American debut, an all-new WRX is arriving for a new era.

Ford revolutionized the automotive world with the Mustang and shortly after that it revolutionized the model and segment it had built with the K-Code Fastback.

In 1964, the Mustang created an all new segment in the automotive market. Attention was immediate and profound, and the Mustang quickly became one of America’s favorite cars. With three assembly plants working around the clock to accommodate the market, Ford added to its successes with an all new K-Code Fastback model in 1965. The K-Code 2+2 Fastback Mustang featured a 271-­horsepower 289-cid High-Performance V8 engine topped with a special Autolite four­-barrel carburetor from the factory, implementing solid valve lifters and a 10.5:1 compression ratio.

There’s a certain pressure when you show up to car-related events as an automotive journalist, and I definitely felt that as I introduced myself to my group at BMW’s Performance Driving School in Thermal, California.
