Forester XT is looking great. I even like the idea of CVT. I wonder how much slower it is going to be than 2011 LGT. Also will be interesting to see if reflash will be able to up the torque to like 300lb-ft.

CVT might provide a cool experience: floor it, minimum turbo lag and then super smooth powerful acceleration!

2.0 from BRZ has 150 tq and far too weak for Forester.
