You almost had me believing but then I saw it still had an 86x86 bore/stroke, a 12.5:1 compression ratio (impossible for turbo with normal fuel), and "Available AWD" ...Yeah, not happening. LOL

I'd be curious to know what kind of "synthetic" transmission fluid they use and if that will be the solution for the TSB.

It's not just the lower CoG. Because it is physically lower, the front hood is lower which allows you to see better. It is also better balanced so it doesn't need a balance shaft or heavy...

So I wonder what they're going to do about the premium option with navigation. Will it be the same unit as before or a new/different model? The old one seemed fine to me. Still better than Subaru's.
