The British version of the 2014 Subaru Forester gets a Pioneer Nav system. Given the complaints about the Fujitsu-ten model US Foresters gets, I'm curious how difficult it would be to get that system integrated into a US Forester. Here is a pic of the UK Forester interior:

UPDATE: Whoops. On second inspection of the photo - it appears they actually get the same NAV system we do. Is that true? I had read theirs was a Pioneer model.

UPDATE 2: I went to the Subaru UK site (which is abysmal for its lack of detailed information) - and it does say its a Pioneer NAV system. Also noticed that UK Subaru's get a 5-year warranty.

UPDATE 3: They "say" Pioneer - but I suspect Subaru slaps a name on the head unit based on what the speakers are. Just like they put Harmon-Karmon on the US head unit even though the unit is made by Fujitsu-Ten.

They also ONLY get a 2.0 engine option (either gasoline or DIESEL). Lucky Brits....
