A little bigger
6 speed instead of 5 speed manual.
CVT still a thing you can get, now with 7(!) fake ratios.
2.0 still there, with direct injection and 5(!) more furious ponies.
will still sell like crazy.
There you go! Now you’re up to date.
The new platform is supposed to be a little lighter too (I would guess about 100 lbs less)
The 6 speed will be a plus too since the ratios are closer and shorter for better performance (the mpg actually go down 1 in the city with the 6 speed vs the 5).
The fact that is still doesn’t have the FB25 or a turbo means that its still completely unsuited to people who live at altitude though. Thanks Subaru for listening!
