Forester XT vs Outback XT vs 3.0: who is faster?
I am new in Subaru but I am looking now for car to replace my 6-old Isuzu Rodeo.
I have actually two important criteria: performance and enough space behind my back.
Off-road possibilities is very appreciated but not critical, since I am living in TX.
Subaru fit very well in all three requirements. I even have got drive test of Forester XT.
I was very happy but later, when I compared specs of Forester XT and Outback, I noticed that turbo-engine of Forester is "underpowered" comparable with same engine on Outback (224hp vs 243hp) and Forester has missed H6 (245hp) engine in line that could be suited very well for him.(when direct competitor RAV4 has V6) And Forester has 4-speed auto transmission vs 5-speed on Outback. Why? Will it worth (in term of performance) to by Outback (XT or 3.0) instead of Forester, specially when Outback is mach more expensive?
