2022 Subaru WRX: hatchback and sedan?


From these photos, it looks like Subaru could offer the next generation WRX in 2 body styles. 
The top photo (as well as the one HERE) shows a slightly more slanted rear window. But especially, a wiper. Which is usually only used on a hatchback design.
Subaru did offer a WRX hatch from 2007 to 2014, based on the Impreza hatchback.

Not sure yet how different the new WRX will be from the next-generation Impreza. 
But this could maybe mean a more coupe/like silhouette for the next generation Crosstrek as well.


  1. bit of the little old Bangle butt treatment?

  2. 22B also had a rear wiper having a coupe design.

  3. JDM cars have rear-wipers on some sedans.

  4. I guess that hatch version is more akin to say a civic hatch which has the wiper on the rear and is kind of like a sedan. Interesting take.

  5. And you thought the VW Taos was bland...

  6. As someone had said sedans in Japan can have rear window wipers. If you look at the previous WRX news from the same day posted earlier you can clearly see a rear window wiper in the first photo:
