Right now, today, Forester is Subaru's fastest selling model. It is also Subaru's highest volume model, It is also more profitable than Crosstrek. They didn't spend any real money introducing the 2.5l. Your narrative is wrong.

It's astonishing you are not seeing this. What engine does the Forester have? What car is that now being put in? They need more 2.5 engines to make these new Crosstreks. Where do they get them from?

"Right now, today..." go look at the very first post....the thread topic....which car sold more last month? And as of "right now" I type this, there are 628 Crosstrek sales and 530 Forester sales. Which one, again, is selling faster?

"They didn't spend any real money". So, what number is that? Tuning suspension. Crash testing. Whatever else... I don't know those numbers, but it's still a cost to recover......and why do something that people have been screaming about for 8 years and not provide?

Edit: as of 1600 today Crosstrek is at 749 and Forester 635
