    Next-gen boxer engine comming this year!

    Report: Next-gen boxer engine coming from Subaru this year
    http://www.autoblog.com/2010/09/01/r...aru-this-year/

    According to Automotive News, Subaru is set to release a new, more fuel-efficient version of its boxer four-cylinder engine. The powerplant should be available in both 2.0-liter and 2.5-liter configurations and will be able to offer up a 10-percent boost in fuel economy over its predecessors. The report doesn't detail exactly how the engine goes about gaining its new found efficiency, but it does say the changes are the first significant revision of the company's boxer architecture in two decades.

    A Fuji Heavy Industries spokesperson confirmed that the new powerplant is coming, but wouldn't go so far as to say which models would benefit from the new tech. Automotive News reports that other sources claim that the thrifty four-pot will first show up in the Forester both in the U.S. and Japan, paired with a CVT gearbox. The new engine will then begin to crop up in models like the Legacy and Impreza here in the States and the Exiga minivan on Subaru's home turf.
    Hopes for direct injection.

    That is the trend. Do away with the 5 speed while they are at it.

    "the changes are the first significant revision of the company's boxer architecture in two decades".

    Subaru has never been a innovator.

    I say keep the 5 speed but beef it up (make it stronger). The gear ratio's are better for drag racing and rally racing.
    Life is like riding a bicycle in order to keep your balance you must keep moving.

    I'll probably be in the market for a new Subaru in the next couple years so this is great news.

    Why does it seem like all the "changes" they are making to EVERY make/model are NOT for the car enthusiasts? I'm just glad their bringing back the STI in sedan form. No disrespect to the Hatch owners im just sayin..
