Subaru hasn't officially sold a wagon version of its popular WRX since 2014. Sure, the Levorg, a wagon version of the Impreza with WRX power, has been available in overseas markets since 2016, but it's just not the same. Now, a real, actual WRX wagon has finally returned... but not for America.

Subaru held its launch for the new WRX in Australia today, and revealed it will be offering a wagon version of the WRX alongside the sedan. Essentially a rebranded Levorg, it gets all that car's body panels paired with the WRX's fascia. The most interesting bit? That controversial fender cladding found on the WRX sedan has been dropped. It's a great looking car with a more cohesive design that we're really into. It's a real shame this car probably won't be sold here in the U.S.

Underneath the skin the WRX wagon gets the same kit you'd find in the sedan. That means a 2.4-liter turbocharged boxer-four sending 271 hp to all four wheels via Subaru's Symmetrical AWD system. A six-speed manual is available on the sedan, though the only choice of transmission available on the wagon is the new "Subaru Performance Transmission," which is just a fancy name for the WRX's updated CVT.

We've reached out to Subaru USA to see if there's any chance we might see a WRX wagon in American dealerships. We don't suggest getting your hopes up, though. The Levorg has been around four half a decade now with no indication of coming to U.S. shores. We don't expect any different with the WRX wagon.
