"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
This conjecture is terrible. There are literally DOUBLE the number of Crosstrek's available for sale vs Foresters available for sale. The days to turn on Crosstrek is 30% higher than Forester. There is no cannibalization of Forester to build Crosstrek's. Your conclusion from correlation is flat out wrong. Crosstrek, Forester, Outback, and Legacy all use that engine. Subaru didn't cut their best selling product in half to push a less profitable vehicle.
