i mean y have they gone for an automatic transmission ? i know the auto transmissions these days are far intelligent and advanced , but for really enjoying to drive a car like the forestter , we have to have manual gears !!

the interiors look classy !! hope these interiors make it to india specific model!!

anyways cant wait to get a test drive of this new baby !!

cheers

I personally did`nt seem to like the car that much.Neither do i like the present one.I feel its just bout average.
I hope they introduce a tiptronic with the 4-speed auto too.
