I completely missed the lack of fender vents

I dunno. Did the Forester XT sell well or is the Outback XT selling well?

A WRX Crosstrek has been requested. I think it could sell well, but it would probably just pull from WRX sales.

A WRX Crosstrek would be pretty sweet, and there's definitely a market for it.

A vehicle like the Crosstrek is appealing to me, but the powertrain options are laughable at best (and pathetic at worst).

I think they could make alot of people happy if they just brought the Levorg over here and the 1.8L Turbo motor they have.

It's a really fun idea that would never happen. Seeing these little rally monster Crosstrek WRX's flying around in winter and off-roading with some OZ wheels and good enough power.

yeah that sucks.
Most reveals are probably going to online reveals again or maybe they scramble to setup a short notice in-person reveal somewhere.
