 Mexico’s Subaru WRX Sportswagon Is Another Car The U.S. Misses Out On

  • Power comes courtesy of a 2.4-liter turbo four-cylinder with 271 hp and 258 lb-ft.
  • Mexican buyers can order the WRX Sportswagon with either a six-speed manual or a CVT.
  • Subaru Mexico says this is the only performance estate sold in the country.

What’s cooler than a standard Subaru WRX? A Subaru WRX estate, and that’s exactly what will soon be launched in Mexico. Unfortunately, the car will not be sold in the United States.

Estate versions of the WRX have been sold in select markets for many years now and are often badged the Levorg, although in some markets like Australia, it is named the WRX Sportswagon. That’s the moniker it’ll adopt in Mexico and shoppers will be able to order it in one of three available guises. Pre-sales recently kicked off before the car’s local arrival later this year.

Sitting at the base of the range is the WRX High6MT available from MX$819,900 or approximately $48,500. Subaru is also selling it with a CVT priced from MX$899,900 (~$53,300), while the flagship WRX tS CVT Sportswagon will set back buyers MX$919,000 (~$54,400).

Like the standard WRX sedan, the Sportswagon is built around the Subaru Global Platform. Drive is provided by a 2.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that in Mexican spec will deliver 271 hp and 258 lb-ft (363 Nm) of torque. While we’ve always questioned Subaru’s decision to offer the WRX with a CVT, we applaud it for still selling it with its symmetrical all-wheel drive system rather than opting for a cheaper front-wheel drive set-up like its similarly-priced rivals. This AWD setup includes a center limited-slip differential, but only if ordered with the six-speed.

Subaru Mexico says the WRX Sportswagon will be the only performance wagon sold in the country when it launches.

While it’s a shame American buyers can’t buy the Sportswagon, the standard sedan variant still has plenty of appeal. Prices for the 2024 model start at $33,855 with the six-speed and top out at $44,215 for the WRX GT variant, sold exclusively with the CVT or, as the automaker calls it, the ‘Subaru Performance Transmission.’
