To Crosstrek or to Forester, that is the question

I have a 15 year old Outback legacy limited only 145,000 - love it and still running great. And a 2005 Forester my son has driven since he got his license 10 years ago. I want, don't need, want a new Subaru and am torn between the Crosstek and 2016 Forester. Or maybe I should wait for the 2016 CT. In either case I'm going Limited. The forester power front seat with adjustable lumbar, large sun/moon roof and auto tail gate vs the sportier looking Crosstek? The CT rides a little bouncier but the manual override is fun. The forester feels a little more grown up...what to do??? Or be sensible and drive that Outback into the ground!

    I've driven both a CrossTrek and a Forester as loaner vehicles - the CrossTrek is a bit underpowered (but I live in Colorado) but I like the size.

    The Forester felt as big to drive as my wife's 2015 Outback, but as noted, visibility is excellent. The larger engine also helped.

  • Thank you everyone for your input which combined with no firm info on why the 2016 crosstek is delayed helps me immensely. You all rock!
