Subaru WRX Wagon Exclusively Available in Mexico

Subaru fans’ dreams come true as WRX wagon is available just over the border.

The United States is known for being one of the largest car markets globally, however, this does not mean we have exclusive access to all vehicles. Despite our market size, there are often amazing cars that are unavailable for purchase here, even when they are located nearby. The latest addition to this list is the Subaru WRX Sportwagon which will soon be arriving at our doorstep but unfortunately, won’t be available for purchase.

The extended Subaru model will be available for purchase in Mexico later this year, and preorders are currently being accepted for residents living in that region. It is equipped with the automaker’s turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder boxer engine, generating 271 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. This power is transferred through a six-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable transmission to the symmetrical all-wheel-drive system, similar to the version available in the United States.

Mexican customers will have the opportunity to appreciate the enhanced flexibility of the body design. The Sportwagon is equipped with a liftgate that can be operated hands-free and rear seats that fold in a 40/20/40 configuration.

The WRX wagon with a manual six-speed transmission has a starting price of MX$819,900 ($48,500 based on current exchange rates) in Mexico. The WRX tS model is priced at MX$919,900 ($54,415), whereas the WRX equipped with a CVT is available for MX$899,900 ($53,232).

There have been concerns raised about the WRX potentially losing some of its edge in the most recent model, but what stings a bit is the fact that the wagon variant is being offered for sale in such close proximity. Wagons may not be completely extinct in America, but they continue to struggle to capture the interest of consumers, resulting in them staying away from our dealership floors.

We have contacted Subaru to inquire about any intentions to introduce the wagon in the United States. We will update this article accordingly once we receive a response.
