Styling kind of reminds me of BMW a bit. I like it besides the mirror and no hatch. Read this on Motortrend's website, I hope it's true! Makes sense since the Forester XT makes torque way low.
"The engine gets different camshafts and higher-rate valve springs, among other upgrades unique to the WRX, to bring output to 268 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, which peaks between 2000 and 5200 rpm. That represents an increase of 3 hp and 14 lb-ft of torque over the previous-gen model's turbo 2.5-liter."
