If the CX5 could only have an optional more powerful engine, gas or diesel I would certainly have considered it. As for the Impreza, I had a 2008 2.5i Sport 5 door with 170 HP and it was not enough for me and not refined, also very little ground clearance so the new one just does meet my requirements with it's 2.0L engine. That being said, I really like their new Crosstrek but again same 2.0L engine; about the CVT, I'm sure I would have gotten used to it and it's one of the best. Lots of issues with the 2008-2011 models thank God I did not pay much for the car and got a good trade-in value. My new RAV meets 95% of my requirements and I will continue with add-ons and small mods to make it a better vehicle!
2012 Sport V6 Classic Silver no option
1999 Lexus RX300 Pearl White base gone
1972 Corolla 1200 Yellow 4 speed manual long gone
Others too many to mention!
