2015 XT CVT.....sadly !
3 out of 5 stars for the 2.0xt from EVO and have to agree
That was a significant factor in the US Motortrend Magazine giving the Forester "SUV of the Year". It offers fantastic bang for the buck.I wonder what alternative they would review better. It seems to me unless you can spend at least the best part of 40k there are very few choices for people who want a new SUV type of vehicle with half decent acceleration.
3 stars in EVO means 'interesting' ...
"Tiptronic mode"? It's not a VW.Their CVT is not very nice either, its tiptronic mode being very forced.
I've had some experience with the BMW 8 speed. I don't see anything special about it. It exhibits typical behaviour like hunting around for the right gear on a hill. I'll take the CVT over that.If you think that's unfair, drive a Mercedes 7spd (9spd soon) or the BMW 8spd auto and you will very quickly see how far behind they are.
The Evoque is a SUV with a very bad view backwards, maybe even that one with the worst view backwards at time!:crazy:Evoque is the best looking SUV in it's class, shows you that sometimes 'looks' are everything!!!
With today's image conscious buyers, the Designers are more important than the Engineers!! That can't be a good thing!
