Subaru WRX Wagon to be Released in Mexico, Unavailable to US consumers

Subaru teases with dream WRX wagon just out of reach.

The United States is known for being one of the biggest car markets globally, however, that does not make it unique. Frequently, we are reminded that there are fantastic cars available elsewhere that we cannot get our hands on – at least not brand new. Sometimes, these vehicles are so close that you can practically touch them. The latest addition to this list will be the upcoming Subaru WRX Sportwagon, a sporty car that will not be available for purchase in the U.S.

The extended Subaru model will be released in Mexico later this year, and preorders are currently available for residents living south of the border. It is equipped with the manufacturer’s turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder boxer engine, generating 271 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. This power is distributed through a six-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable transmission to the symmetrical all-wheel-drive system, mirroring the setup of the US variant.

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

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

Despite some doubts about the WRX becoming less aggressive in its newest version, it stings a bit to see the wagon on sale nearby. Wagons may not be completely extinct in America, but they are still unloved by consumers, resulting in them being absent from our stores.

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