What more could we expect from manufacturers being succumbed to ever-tightening regulatory bodies that have turned vehicles into appliances on wheels?
They need to stop letting their colouring-in departments collaborate with design and engineering.
Manufacturers have seemingly moved their directed ear-holes away from consumer responses of their products.

Turbo the BRZ.
Give the Levorg an option for manual trans.
Stop ramming CVT down everyone's necks.
etc...

I know when the time comes in a few years I won't be looking at a late model WRX, not with the Hyundai i30N landing late this year...

Not wrong about the Toyota name. Something in there says Kluger to me... meanwhile in Hyundai land I was a bit shocked when I drove a Hyundai Tucson hire vehicle a few weeks back. They have seriously come a long way since the last Hyundai Santa fe I drove back in 2009. May be shortage of spares if DT & Kim have it out though.

Seriously? Have you ever been inside, or driven a Hyundai? Very different cars to Subaru's. As a detailer I have a strong dislike for their lack of quality both inside and out.

Yeah, was at a local dealer around EOFY run out time with the in-law looking for a run out i30 for her.
It was no "N" but they were seemingly reasonable for their price. Father in-law even commented he liked them, and he's a V8 guy haha.
Personally I wouldn't own a base i30, but the promise and reviews of the "N" tickles parts of me that haven't' been tickled since I've been married.
Had a look around at almost everything in the yard at the time, their SantaFe, Tuscon, i40, Veloster, etc... Killing time. Nothing really stood out as something I'd buy there and then.

I said I'd take an i30N over a new rex because if I was presented with a blank cheque and they were the A or B options, that's what I'd choose. Has a bit of character/WTF factor about it.. Everyone knows what a rexy is..
Or come several years from now if I had to pay for it, that's probably the option i'd still choose given the choices..

2019 Subaru Forester First Look.

From Edmunds story:
Quote:
Its venerable 2.5-liter flat-four engine soldiers on with 12 extra ponies and 2 additional pound-feet of torque, now at 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft, but the turbocharged 250-hp 2.0-liter engine found in the now-defunct 2.0XT has been dropped. This engine gave the Forester absolute performance bragging rights in the class, and we're sad to see it go.

No 2L turbo confirmed. Will now be looking elsewhere to replace SJ XT.
