Default Waiting for the 2015 Forester to come out

Thought about Subaru vehicles for a while, but lost hope after the early 00's rally car look went away. The new Forester is moderate looking but has impressed me in overall looks, function and performance.

I can't wait to see what the 2015 Forester comes with.

I already have a list of "improvements/mods" and I have not even bought one yet. I basically want it to corner like a race car since it already had the performance of one.

When I purschase one this will be my first Japanese vehicle that I will own.

I would guess that since Subaru came out with 2 new engines and re-engineered the body to succesfully pass the new "small overlap frontal crash test" I wouldn't expect much body change (or engine change). CVT exists and XT will not have a manual.

Given the success of the '14 in its short life, I think only small tweaks will be implemented: probably down model offering of eyesight and xmode. If past is any indication, more substantial tweaks will come in 16-17, suspension changes, etc.

I agree, I don't see anything significant changing for '15

You know what they say, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"...

I've decided to wait for the 2015 Forester. Gives me something of interest while enduring this brutally cold Michigan Winter.
