I was considering the Forester with it's HUGE sunroof, but it is a little "Old Maid"ish in the looks dept. They are unveiling a new one in 3 or 4 days. It looks more aggressive.

And also the new Subaru Crosstrek XV. But from what I've read, it is seriously underpowered. I believe it has 100 HP less than the X1. Of course it is $20k cheaper.

But I don't know how to describe it other than that Subaru's feel light and wispy. I can't believe they are anywhere near as safe in a collision. Any thoughts on that? Regarding gas mileage, I've heard the X1 is a bit of a fairy tale in that regard. I wonder what the actual would be for an 80% city driver.
