Subaru WRX Wagon Revealed For Mexican Market

Author: |

While the United States boasts one of the largest car markets globally, its prominence doesn't necessarily equate to exclusivity. It's a familiar refrain that despite the plethora of options available, there are often tantalizing vehicles just out of reach, almost close enough to touch. Adding to this catalog of unattainable delights is the Subaru WRX Sportwagon, a sporty new model slated for release—a model that Americans won't have the privilege to purchase.

Set to hit the Mexican market later this year, the WRX Sportwagon is already available for pre-order, albeit exclusively for those residing south of the border. Powered by Subaru's turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder boxer engine, it boasts a robust output of 271 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. This power is harnessed through a choice of either a six-speed manual gearbox or a continuously variable transmission, both seamlessly integrating with the symmetrical all-wheel-drive system, mirroring the setup of its US counterpart. Pricing for the manual transmission variant of the WRX wagon begins at $48,500, considering current exchange rates, while the WRX tS commands $54,415, and the CVT-equipped WRX is priced at $53,232.

Mexican consumers will undoubtedly relish the enhanced versatility offered by the Sportwagon's elongated roofline. Boasting a hands-free liftgate and 40/20/40 folding rear seats, it promises practicality without compromising on performance.

Despite some skepticism surrounding the WRX's recent softening in its latest iteration, the proximity of the wagon to American borders stings with a twinge of envy. While wagons haven't entirely vanished from the American market, their lukewarm reception among buyers has relegated them to the fringes of showroom floors.
