Therefore it is fair/logical to compare/cross-shop a WRX and Forester. Therefore it is logical to compare a Forester XT to a Focus ST. I'd take a 2014 FXT over the Focus ST anyday as a daily driver. *snip*
You just compared apples to nails. There's is nothing logical in what you just said, at all, when you bring the '14 FXT into the discussion considering...
1) There's no proof that the '14 Forester XT and WRX will be sharing anything because there's a void of info on there being a new WRX.
2) We *do* know the new FXT engine/chassis is different than the older FXTs.
