Definitely a worthy contender. My only criticism of it is the 4-speed tranny. Although it doesn't seem to hurt it much in the performance or efficiency dept. Although I'd chalk that up more to its light weight rather than its drivetrain. Imagine how much better it could be with a 6-speed auto or DSG trans. Also will be interesting when the boxer diesel comes to the U.S.

That diesel sounds amazing. I also wonder what it's going to sound like in person.

Nice picture where the Forester is catching some air. The driver looks like he's trying so hard to get it to fly.
