    Yay! that's great news. Hopefully, they up the HP from the FA20 and throw in a manual option alongside the CVT

    Will not get this in Europe sadly. But if they at least get the 1.6 to around 180-190hp, and throw a 6 speed in there, that'd be sweeeet :D

    Because of emissions, European won't get the FA20T?

    I suspect that Europe is more likely to see the forthcoming 1.5 version which is reported to make power, BHP and torque, extremely close to the old 1.6 DIT engine. The upcoming 1.8 makes around 270 BHP if my memory serves me correct.
    I saw these two proposed engine unit figures on another website a while back. There were no emission details regarding them though.

    So many people wish for that option :D Unfortunately Subaru have, I believe made every model in their current UK range apart from the BRZ CVT with auto CVT boxes only. The BRZ can be bought with a manual or CVT gearbox.
    Every car magazine that I've read who have tested a Subaru vehicle (BRZ aside to a degree) have complained about the serious lack of torque with their N/A engine range. A problem they could have negated with fitting either the 1.6 DIT engine or a mildly detuned version of the 2.0 BRZ engine.
    I'm going to hang on to my 1.6 Levorg like glue while I see what Subaru UK decide to bring into the UK.
    Incidentally I was back tracking on some of the posts on this site. Mine is one of the last of the pre eyesight Levorgs, my CVT gearbox seems to behave better than some of those that I've read about on this forum site. I wonder if mine got fitted with a updated software? Or have I managed to adapt my driving style to suit it's limitations? ;)

    That would be sick if that information is true!
