The new Forester XT 230hp, 2.5x 175hp. Both have a higher ground clearance.

I absolutely love our new '06 Forester. Just love it. It was everything we were looking for without having to sacrafice a thing. As a matter of fact, I feel we got even more than we were looking for. We bought the 2.5X with the premium package (worth it for the moon roof alone!).
And as an added bonus, all the people at the Subaru dealership were so pleasant and informative. Not once did we get that eww-I've-got-to-wash-now feeling we got from the Honda and Toyota dealers.
I am sold on this car--which really surprised me because I don't get this excited about new vehicles. I'm a Subaru convert.

I hope to get either an FXT or LGT before Subaru bastardizes them with the new grill like subieman alluded to.

You don't have to know Japanese to see it. Where is says 265PS, that means 265 Pferdstarke, the European way of rating horsepower. 1 Pferdstarke is roughly equal to 1 horsepower, so I would say that it's probably rated at 276hp.
If you actually pull the motor, put it on an accurate dyno, and run it, I'm sure it will probably say more than that, most likely in the 320-350hp range. Most über Japanese sports cars (Nissan Skyline, Toyota Supra, Mitsubishi Evo, STi-tuned Subarus, etc.) make way more than the 280-hp limit. But the company will simply lie about the rating so the Japanese government will allow them to sell it.
