• 225/55x17 tires, same size as found on the Forester
• 8.6" ground clearance
• 1.6L & 2.0 gas engines. First application of the FB16 engine
• Updated diesel offered
• 1.6 version gets dual-range 5-speed tranny, others get 6-speed manual. All but diesel get CVT option.
• Still struggling with the grille insert design
• Start-stop engine function
• Disappointed in the "urban" CUV marketing. Was hoping for it being the sporty off-roader that the Forester never was.
