Right, although this new one reminds me more of a RAV4 than an Impreza, more so than the current model, which might be where the Crosstrek segment fills the white space between the Forester and Outback.a forester is an impreza with a higher roofline and taller shocks. there is a new impreza. the '13 foresters were based on the last generation impreza
Well, Subaru only has 2 platforms: compact car (Impreza) made in Japan and midsize (Legacy) thats made here in the US. The differences aren't all that noticeable, but can be seen in the small details. I'm sure the reason for that boils down to money, like how many cars they can sell per year and also customer feedback.is it me or are all the Subaru's starting to look the same?
New Outbacks look kinda like Tribecas.... New Foresters look kinda like Outbacks.
So do the Imprezas. Its subtle but I feel like 10 years ago, they all looked a bit more distinct.
BTW, this is NOT a complaint.
edit: wonder if they will do the same new purchase coupon thing they did up in the Washington auto show?
I am going to try to go to the LA auto show at least to check out Subaru for a bit. I havent been to an auto show since
about 1990. Remember it was fun though - even for a non car guy like me.
I understand it gets the CVT. Although much of the automotive press seems to dislike CVT's in general, I find it gets power to the ground much more effectively than the old Forester 4 speed automatic. I have CVT's in my 2010 Outback and in my 2013 Impreza. Drove Foresters before buying each of these cars and the Foresters just felt underpowered with the 4 speed auto.Is it just re-skinned 2013 model?
