Did you end up ordering it? I have never seem one in stock at my local dealers.
We're now in the market for the new Impreza Sport hatch in 5MT or the upcoming Crosstrek if they offer it in MT. Since dealers aren't carrying any MTs in stock anywhere, we might finally surrender to the 800 CVT, which obviously gets better mileage, better for resale, and Eyesight becomes available. My real concern is how much acceleration and fun driver involvement the CVT kills. MT is also a millennial theft deterrent...
I agree drive by wire is more of a pain with a manual. I had a 2010 ranger with a throttle cable and just got a '12 focus with drive by wire, both manual. I'm not used to rev hang so I'm still trying to get used to it
What do you think of the plastic intake manifold, probably not as good for long term reliability? Thanks.
I just got a 2017 Impreza sport manual hatchback. What would be your advice on how to moderately increase hp and not ruin the Warranty. Cold air intake? Subaru Turbocharger?
2018 is going to have Direct Injection
Was the Eyesight offered to you or how come you didn't get it? Trying to decide between 2016 Rav4 or 2016 Crosstrek. Thanks
is it diesel or petrol???
and... for those who want to wait for the completely redesigned Crosstrek with the new chassis, the new 2018 Crosstrek has debuted at the Geneva auto show today 372017:
I drove my 2016 crosstrek limited from Louisville, Ky to Portland, Oregon at around 200.
I'd go for the cvt. I love a nice high gear for highway speed.
I really wish you would drive the CVT version and do a comparison video.
He loved his STI until it was stolen............ Compares what it is repeatedly to his STI
I just bought the 2017 w CVT about an hour ago. Great car. I was already a subscriber and was pleasantly surprised that one of my favorite Youtubers also considers this car a good choice. Cheers
Hey can you do a video about the charcoal filter in the intake of the crosstrek? I have one and have seen in many XV forums that a lot of people are taking out the charcoal filter saying it adds a little more power since airflow is unrestricted?
Funny: I just went the other way from you.......... traded my 2014 CVT TOP Crosstrek for a 2017 WRX. My only problem with the Crosstrek was the power...... of lack of it...... My wife's daily driver is a 16 Forester, so we still have a trail car. Had the suspension modded on the Crosstrek, it handled well for a Crosstrek. Have fun in your Crosstrek, hope you enjoy it.....
so the mpg meter is a vacuum gauge in a fancy dress.
These things are everywhere up here.
Can you give me the coordinates of the road you're driving in the video? I want to look into that area to build a home. Great video review of the Crosstrek That car is fantastic
