WRX tS Sportswagon Lineartronic 2022 Subaru Review

Subaru WRX tS Sportswagon is it any good

WRX tS Sportswagon – We have driven a few WRXs over the last few weeks but last week was my favourite. The tS Sportswagon with Sport Lineartronic transmission.

2022 Subaru WRX - TS Sportswagon. The key things I like are firstly, the extra practicality of the sport wagon design with its larger and more accessible boot area.

Secondly, the flexibility of the suspension set up. The Sportswagon has slightly softer standard suspension setting compared to the sedan as well as different tyres. This allows for more relaxed everyday driving, with less firmness.

However select any of the sport drive modes and the Sportswagon transforms its personality to provide a thoroughly engaging drive experience.

Staring with the turbocharged 2.4-litre, horizontally-opposed four-cylinder Boxer engine that delivers power 202 kW @ 5,600rpm and Torque of 350 Nm from 2,000 – 5,200rpm..

Obviously it comes with Subaru’s famous AWD system and Sport Lineartronic transmission with Electronic control dampers and Drive Mode Select – Comfort, Normal, Sport, Sport+, and Individual settings.

18 inch alloy wheels and performance tyres enhance the sports appeal and Subaru Intelligent Drive (SI-Drive), EyeSight® safety features round out the list of tS features.

The tS Sportswagon is priced from $57,990 plus the usual costs and you get a lot for that money.
