Subaru tends to have their vehicles become dated and behind the pack.  Then every ten years, they try to upmarket everything to compete, then fall behind again.  Small car company woes.

Mazda is going to start seeing that happen to them here too if they don't make great strides inside.

It to me seems like a lazy afterthought to do that.  The German brands love to do that.

The German brands have lost their soul and passion.  All sterile.

BMW and Mercedes are becoming quite sterile, but there is still soul in their performance cars.  Mercedes has been doing a better job lately on the performance front.

The BMW's are losing steering feel and becoming turds with turbochargers.

It's true!  Think of the new BMW 3 seres that costs $60,000 for a fully loaded car, but it comes with a 4 cylinder!  The 5 Series is the same way!  Turbo 4's!

Look at the Alfa Guila TA which can be had with a turbo 4 instead of at least a V6!

Engine downsizing is the current trend, but luckily, engines are getting better and providing better power with less, and better economy.  Fact of life.

Okay.  Bare with me here.  The new Focus ST has about 230hp and does 0-60mph in about 5 seconds.

The 80s Buick Grand National had 210hp and did 0-60mph in about 8 seconds. 


The Buick had a V8 and the current Focus has a V4.

.....You make your point. 

I am just trying to say how wimpy it sounds.  A 4 cylinder doesn't sound nearly as good as a 6 cylinder, and an 8 cylinder is boss.
