      That's a whole lotta charge piping. Turbo Subarus are jealous.

      Any US spec dimensions available yet? Curious about how it stacks up to the 2017 Impreza and the GSW.
    3. Diesel particulate matter is really nasty for...

      Diesel particulate matter is really nasty for humans, with data over the past few years pointing to it being worse than previously thought. Rolling coal is going to put a hurt on diesel tuners and...
    4. Don't forget the new Impreza and new XV is coming...

      Don't forget the new Impreza and new XV is coming soon. 5-door is gaining something like 7" in length, so cargo and passenger room is going to be going up a decent amount. Doubt cargo capacity will...

      Let us know how the test drive goes. Forester 6MT is on my list as well.
    6. Could end up being 11"-13" longer that the Golf...

      Could end up being 11"-13" longer that the Golf (using couple/sedan total length) and it already has more legroom (over 36"). Cargo floor length and width is going to be bigger than the Golf. ...

      Is this going to be on the coupe (177") or sedan (182") chassis?

      The GSW 4Motion, Civic hatch, and 2017 Impreza are all on my list for possible LGT wagon replacement; they may just be big enough,...

      Second that. I'm more conservative when it comes to housing loans. Losing a house is a little more disruptive than losing a car. Getting 6+ months of car payments under your belt certainly can help...

      The Impreza is on my list to compare to the GSW, since it will be a few inches longer and have a bit more passenger space. Negatives include only 152 HP and no confirmed manual. The numbers being...

      As a Subaru driver, I'm looking at as close as possible replacement to my current unicorn car (cloth heated seats, no sunroof, manual, turbo, aftermarket), with the addition of a little more rear...

      S 4Motion 6MT looks good on pricing, and really similar to my current car in terms of specs. Just hope it is 1) rear seat is big enough for rear-facing car seats and 2) long-term reliability

      Bummed to see the lower torque spec for the 4motion GSW with the 6MT. There a tech discussion somewhere on the 6-speed manual used on the GSW 4Motion? Greater weight and AWD means the...
    13. Definitely taking more interest in the GSW with...

      Definitely taking more interest in the GSW with the announcement. Probably the closest 2017 car to my LGT wagon (manual, turbo, wagon, no sunroof). Hopefully it will be big enough for the family.
    14. Not being required to get a sunroof would be a...

      Not being required to get a sunroof would be a bonus for me. New Foresters with sunroofs have less rear headroom than my LGT wagon because of the sunroof. That doesn't seem right when comparing the...

      Wait, I can get a base GSW with AWD and manual? Niiicceee

      Any reason the Forester XT wasn't on the list? ...

      Any reason the Forester XT wasn't on the list? 250HP and turbo near the top/if not the top in terms of acceleration for the class, even at altitude. Decent rear seat space and cargo capacity. And...

      It is on their new global platform, with some silly numbers like a 70% increase in stiffness. Also is going to get the same steering ratio/maybe same rack as the BRZ T 13:1 down from 16:1. The...

      New Impreza lands in a few months, and it currently has the best fuel economy for an AWD car in the US. Be interesting to see how the new Impreza/CrossTrek compares to the Alltrack. One thing is...

      I'd look for a new commuter car. 300-400 miles a week for work and dealing with a fairly constant stream of issues would be annoying. With interest rates as low as they are combined with low gas...

      The Forester Premium 6MT is the default choice for me, but it just feels 'meh' I know the suspension and shifter can be tightened up, but the interior feels the same if not worse than my current...
