Subaru Memperkenalkan WRX 2022 Semua Baharu

Ikon generasi kelima rali WRX mendapat 271 bhp

Ini dia WRX 2022 yang serba baharu dengan ciri, reka bentuk, dan prestasi yang paling maju dalam sejarah hampir 20 tahunnya. Ikon rali generasi kelima ini dikuasakan oleh enjin Subaru BOXER® turbocharged 2.4 liter 271hp baharu yang dipadankan dengan manual 6-kelajuan atau kotak gear automatik baharu.

Ya, jurutera Subaru terus menyediakan kotak gear manual untuk peminat pemanduan sejati tidak seperti banyak pengeluar kereta berprestasi lain yang telah sepenuhnya menghilangkan kotak gear manual dari barisan mereka.

WRX generasi ke-4 berharga dari RM199,800 di Malaysia yang bermaksud versi terbaru ini akan menaikkan tangga harga menjadi sekitar RM260,000 hingga RM290,000 bila tiba di Malaysia kerana ciri keselamatan telah meningkat seiring dengan tambahan teknologi pengendalian.

Kemas kini terakhir untuk WRX dilakukan pada tahun 2019 dan terdapat sedikit penambahbaikan yang dilakukan di setiap bahagian untuk memberi kelebihan kepada persaingan berbanding menunggu versi terbaharu ini tiba.

Kemudian ada edisi khas WRX STi Type RA-R yang dilancarkan pada bulan Julai 2018. 500 unit edisi terhad ini hanya memberikan 329PS pada 7,200rpm dan tork 432Nm yang mengejutkan pada 3,200 hingga 4,800rpm. Oleh itu, akan menjadi menarik untuk melihat apakah angka prestasi untuk STi generasi ke-5 ketika ia tiba nanti.

Juga baru untuk tahun 2022, WRX menambah trim GT top-of-the-line baharu dengan transmisi automatik baharu, Subaru Performance Transmission, sebagai standard. WRX GT baharu menawarkan, pertama kali untuk WRX, peredam dikawal secara elektronik yang dapat menyesuaikan prestasi dinamik dengan pilihan pemandu dengan tetapan Comfort, Normal, dan Sport. Drive Mode Select juga menawarkan pilihan tambahan untuk mengkonfigurasi nuansa kemudi, pengaturan peredam, tetapan SI-Drive, dan banyak lagi, dengan hingga 430 pilihan penyesuaian yang berbeza.

Untuk pertama kalinya, WRX dibina di Subaru Global Platform, yang menawarkan peningkatan keselamatan, dinamika yang lebih baik, dan pengurangan kebisingan, getaran, dan kekerasan (NVH). WRX 2022 akan tersedia di peruncit Subaru pada awal 2022.

Subaru WRX 2022 DYNAMIC PERFORMANCE

For 2022, the WRX lineup features a new 2.4-liter turbocharged Subaru BOXER® engine, delivering 271 horsepower at 5,600 rpm, a broader torque curve with 258 lb-ft of torque from 2,000-5,200 rpm. The increased displacement, along with a turbocharger equipped with electronically controlled waste-gate and air bypass valves, improves responsiveness and acceleration.

Every WRX is equipped with legendary Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and Active Torque Vectoring. Subaru has delivered more than 20 million all wheel drive vehicle to date and some 98 percent of them are all wheel drive.

Coupled with the Subaru BOXER engine is either the 6-speed manual transmission, which has been fitted with optimized gear ratios and refined for improved shift quality, or the new Subaru Performance Transmission (automatic) which offers up to 30 percent faster upshifts (2nd to 3rd) and 50 percent faster downshifts (3rd to 2nd).

The automatic transmission incorporates adaptive shift control that can quickly respond to perform rev-matching downshifts under braking, maintain the ideal ratio through corners, and respond faster on corner exit. Total ratio coverage range has been enlarged, and lower ‘fixed’ gear ratios have been revised to improve acceleration and response.

Engine and automatic transmission operation can be tailored to driver preferences with three different settings for the SI-Drive Performance Management System. For additional driver involvement, an 8-speed manual mode can be accessed using steering wheel paddle shifters. An available external transmission fluid cooler improves durability and capability under demanding conditions.

The adoption of the Subaru Global Platform delivers a substantial upgrade in ride and handling performance thanks to increased chassis stiffness and lower center of gravity height. The enhanced platform, now with full inner frame construction and increased use of structural adhesives, delivers 28 percent increase in overall torsional rigidity and a 75 percent increase in suspension mounting point rigidity.

A longer suspension stroke increases vehicle stability and lateral grip on uneven surfaces. The rear stabilizer bar, now mounted directly to the body (vs. the subframe), operates more efficiently and contributes to a roll rate reduction when cornering.

The suspension is track-tuned for an engaging driving experience. Optimized front suspension geometry reduces mass offset of the front suspension, and a new dual-pinion electric power steering system separates the driver’s input shaft from the motor assist shaft. Together, these enhancements deliver a quicker response to driver inputs, improved accuracy, and a more natural steering feel.

Equipped with summer performance tires on 17 or 18-inch alloy wheels and four-wheel ventilated disc brakes, the 2022 WRX has achieved the highest levels of dynamic performance and ride comfort in its history.

Subaru WRX BOLD EXTERIOR DESIGN

The 2022 WRX has a wide-body design offering an aggressive stance and bold new look. At the front, Subaru’s signature hexagonal grille is partnered with compact LED headlights and a broad front hood scoop to emphasize the wide and low look. Prominent character lines across the front, sides, rear of the vehicle further empathize the sports sedan’s strength and performance capability.

The front fenders are now made of aluminum which reduces the overall vehicle weight by 5.0 lb. The rear deck lid has an integrated low-profile rear spoiler in matching body color. Rear taillights are designed to glow with a look reminiscent of volcanic magma.

Several functional aerodynamic improvements enhance the WRX’s performance and stability, as well as the exterior design. An air outlet at the trailing edge of the front wheel opening allows air to exit from the wheel well more freely, contributing to reduced lift on the front tires and improved driving stability.

Another air outlet added at each side of rear bumper reduces body sway due to air trapped behind the bumper. Molded wheel arches and lower trim feature an aerodynamic texture that reduces air resistance. Beneath the front of the vehicle, the engine undercover also features this same aerodynamic texture, and augments it with a geometry that channels airflow to increase downforce at the front of the vehicle.

Subaru WRX DRIVER-FOCUSED INTERIOR

A black interior with contrast red stitching and carbon fiber pattern accents throughout communicate the performance capabilities of the vehicle. The high-performance feel grows stronger as soon as the driver enters the 2022 WRX and grips the flat-bottom, leather-wrapped steering wheel with integrated switches for audio, voice recognition, and EyeSight control. Power windows with auto up/down on both driver and passenger sides; 60/40-split fold-down rear seat; power door locks and side mirrors are standard.

Front and center in the cabin, and highlighting the driver-focused interior, is an all-new tablet-style 11.6-inch full HD center information display. As with a smartphone, app icons can be moved and configured based on personal preference. The top tier 11.6-inch Multimedia with Navigation option adds voice-activated navigation powered by TomTom® (3-year free map updates).

Both the Multimedia Plus and Multimedia Plus with Navigation offer a split-screen display, a first for Subaru. The display can simultaneously show two types of information, such as navigation and audio, for improved user interaction. The 11.6-inch multimedia systems retain physical buttons and knobs for frequently used functions like volume and temperature.

The all-new 2022 Subaru WRX offers an available 11-Speaker Harman Kardon® (HK) sound system and a HK 504-watt equivalent amplifier. Tuned especially for the WRX, the HK sound system features premium technology to provide immersive sound for every passenger.

The system is equipped with GreenEdge™, an amplifier technology that enables passengers to experience superior sound quality with minimal energy consumption and Clari-Fi™, a technology that analyzes and restores lost audio signals in real-time. The two technologies help deliver a rich, uncompressed listening experience.

Subaru WRX GT TRIM LEVEL

For 2022, the WRX adds a new top-of-the-line GT trim, featuring electronically controlled dampers that can tailor the dynamic performance to the driver’s preferences with Comfort, Normal, and Sport settings. New Drive Mode Select offers additional options to configure steering feel, damper settings, SI-Drive settings, and more, with up to 430 different customization options.

Exclusive to GT, new Recaro® seats offer the driver and front passenger increased support for performance driving. The Y-shaped design at the center of the seat backrest embodies a design concept in which the sides and shoulder blades of the occupant are securely supported to maintain proper driving posture.

The seats are wrapped in black Ultrasuede® with contrasting red stitching and the “Recaro” logo embossed on the seatbacks. The driver’s seat includes 8-way power adjustments.

The GT also features exclusive 18-in aluminum alloy wheels in matte gray finish paired with 245/40 R18 summer performance tires.

Standard on GT, EyeSight Driver Assist Technology includes Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control and new Automatic Emergency Steering.

Subaru WRX ADVANCED SAFETY TECHNOLOGY

The WRX’s stiffened platform pays multiple dividends in the real world through strengthened suspension mounting points and lowered center of gravity. The improved body rigidity provides more responsive steering and handling, smoother and quieter ride, and heightened hazard avoidance in emergency situations.

Crash protection, too, is markedly improved, as the new body absorbs more energy in front/side crashes than the outgoing model. When a crash is unavoidable, the WRX protects with seven standard airbags, including a driver knee airbag.

Standard on all trims (with automatic transmission) is EyeSight Driver Assist Technology, enhanced with expanded angle of view and software performance improvements that deliver a wider range of operation.

The addition of an electric brake booster improves braking responsiveness and performance in panic stops. The Lane Departure Prevention function has been improved to provide a smoother and more natural assistance.

For the first time in a WRX, Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering is now included in the EyeSight system’s suite of features. Newly available Automatic Emergency Steering works in conjunction with the Pre-Collision Braking System to assist with steering control to help avoid a collision at speeds under 50 mph.

This all-wheel drive thrill machine has been re-engineered for next-level performance, and it quickly proves itself to be punchier, sharper and more responsive
