276-horsepower, 2.0-liter twin-scroll turbocharged four.... dissapointment... Twin scroll exhaust and turbo can be put on the Gen 2 Forester XT. Its not like twin scroll is something new, JDM stuff has had it since what 93' when the 22B came out?

 

 

If they are gonna put a turbo on the forester, why not do some ground breaking design like and STi forester? If I were to buy one, (and thats a big IF, I cant stand new stuff) I wouldnt buy one unless it had the 300+ hp 2.5L in it.

 

Dont get me wrong, I think its awesome that they are making a 250+ hp forester, but with it sittin @ 276 hp, why not just buy an older XT forester and put a FMIC on it and a bigger turbo and you just passed 275 hp.

wonder how much it weighs? maybe it needs 250+ to have comparable performance to the old one.

 

as for looks, maybe the BRZ isn't the only soob vehicle to get Toyota input.

Not loving that weird little snub nose on it, needs to be more aggressive.

 

What happened to straight lines? Everything seems to need curves these days. What a shame...

Aerodynamics is the reasons for curves everywhere, i do miss some boxyness. The day the Wrangler goes curvey is the day we are all doomed to driving jelly beans.

AAND no more hood scoop. :(  But bumper/fairing slits.

Ooh well, the more manufacturers get from each other the more everything looks like everything else. . . .

 

it's more towards globalization... like you can find a Starbucks and KFC anywhere, as if anywhere (San Paulo, Santiago, Bankok, Lhasa, Quito, Tegucigalpa(that's for you JesZek ;), Beijing),  is Seattle, Portland or Atlants.

 

 

As Kurt Vonnegut put it so well, "so it goes"
