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.Because of emissions, European won't get the FA20T?
So many people wish for that option 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.1.5 ? sad :/
Can I haz the 1.8 with a 6MT ?
Can't say that I'm too surprised at that info from your dealer, mine goes in for its service and MOT next week. I don't think that the manager will tell me that though. He'll probably try to convince me to buy the current 2.0 litre version. For which the answer is a resounding No!Had a chat with my dealer (car went in for scheduled maintenance). He told me that new 'vorg isn't gonna me available in european union, for tax reason. The supposed pollution numbers are so that importers/dealers would have to pay a shitton of money to be allowed to sell the car in EU. And buyers would still have to pay crazy taxes to be able to register the car under their name (FWIW, my levorg cost me ~2500€ for registration. luckily yearly tax is more decent).
I so much wanted that new levorg with 1.8 and 6MT :/
