This is our second Forester (my wife drives a 2003 XS with PP). The power of the turbo is outstanding, yet it is still very practical & enjoyable on long drives....went to Washington DC & spent time in cottage country of central Ontario. Looking forward to the winter time with one of the best full time AWD systems in the industry!
The AWD system, huge power sunroof, factory HID headlights (standard on Canadian XT's), 'stealth factor' for the Turbo, hood scoop looks cool, cargo capacity with very good overall fuel economy & excellent visibility. Heated wiper elements are awesome for the winter.
Factory 'privacy' tint on rear windows, larger center armrest with more storage, 5 or 6 speed automatic, better quality original equipment tires for safer grip in wet weather & better road noise. Steering wheel controls would be nice & a little larger fuel tank wouldn't hurt either.
