You mean like pretty much every SUV ?

Turkina wrote:Yeah, that figures - although the Tucscon wasn't an option since they don't offer it with the 2.0T. Most CUVs have crappy underpowered engines on heavier vehicles so they have worse performance and worse fuel economy than a comparable sedan.

About to replace the wife's '07 CR-V with a 2014 Forester. New design, but the non-turbo is the same 2.5L they've always run so I'm comfortable with that. I'd prefer the turbo, but every one I see in inventory has every single option box checked adding about $4K in useless expense. Since it's a new model and they need to flood the lots, methinks a special order (it'd be my 4th Subaru from the same dealer, so I know I can get it done) might take a few months.
