Yup - you are right - just checked the SoA press release. I had assumed that if the premium was gone, the base was, too - weird!

Looks like it's an accessory on the Subaru Japan site (at 43050 yen - about $540!)

Thanks illmatic it looks amazing...and the engine undoubtably sounds like a boxer but to me it seems like all the usual clatter is actually refined now, instead of offbeat.

I just have two questions, that I may have missed the answer to reading this thread:

1. Does is only come as a wagon? Or is there a sedan version also.

2. Is there a manual trans as standard or option? Or is it only 5eat/CVT.


My phone wouldn't let me watch the videos so I couldn't use those.

Sedan, too. Exclusively CVT AFAIK. Subaru's press release makes no mention of manual option when discussing the transmission in the DIT.

I don't mind shifting. Did it most of my life, but manual=slower and lower MPG. Nah, I'll take the CVT.

If and only if, the CVT can do it better than me, I'll take the CVT.

If Subaru can/will program it properly(for what you are probably referring to). Have an ECO mode, then a balls out mode.

This ^^^ It definitiely needs a Sport and/or Sport# mode. Standard settings on Legacy and Outback CVT are too timid. Impreza CVT is definitely more aggressive.

Perhaps rather than set parameters, they could provide continuous variable torque response via paddles; the longer one tugs on a given paddle the more torque is applied, and vice versa ?

The '13 Legacy/Outbacks should be similar. They are getting the second gen CVT.

I was of similar thinking. I hope that's the case, as we are ready and waiting to buy a '13 Outback as soon as they confirm pricing and option packages. Hopefully tomorrow...

IF subaru puts CVT's in all their sedans, they will lose me forever. It is the devils transmission. It is the only thing I can imagine worse than a slush box.

Perhaps you could explain how you came to that conclusion?
