I wonder if we'll see the wagon at all in North America.
North America isn't getting the wagon, unfortunately. It would probably compete with the already popular CX-5.
I despise crossovers and SUV's...this mazda looks awesome. Will Russia get it? IF so, maybe Putin will give me a passport and a new Mazda wagon.
+1. Time to replace the Sube WRX. Nice looking ride.
Really want a all wheel drive wagon. Anyone look at the Foresters?
Keeping my eye on the 2014 XT. 2.0 turbo and 250hp. Looks good, only downside I see for us in the states is it only comes with the CVT transmission. Better than the current 4 speed AT though.
Bummed to hear the mazda 6 wagon isn't coming here, although I do seem to recall the CX-5 will have a diesel option here soon so maybe that will work out.
Hmm, I don't think I've ever heard anyone refer to the Forester as enormous before.
The 4th Gen/2014 Forester looks a lot better then the outgoing 3rd Gen. More sporty like the older 1st and 2nd Gen.
Yeah... Me, either...
103,000 miles, just got back from a CA-PHX run...Still hauls ass like when it was new! 85MPH for hours and no downshift for passing. 24.5 mpg
The original Forester was wagon-sized. The current Forester is a small-midsize SUV. It grows with every update.
I have an 08 Outback XT Limited I'm about to put up for sale once it quits raining and I can get some decent pics. 41k miles, 2.5L turbo and the all important 5 spd manual transmission. Too bad you are 1600 miles away. Of course I just did a fly and drive from Green Bay to Austin last weekend which was only 200 miles shorter.
A fun read/slideshow - especially if you grew up with these wagons.
How feckin big do you think your tadger is then ?
My first car in 1983 was a 64 Ford Country Sedan wagon. Great car, I sold it into the movie industry. Stupid.
If the Diesel is 30% more efficient than it's Gas counterpart we could be looking at x-over getting 45mpg! Talk about a way better option to a Hybrid!
Yes, I can see this auto thread devolving into a TDI thread but...
I can't figure out why Toyota et al hybrid makers don't go diesel on their hybrid engines. More fuel efficient generation, lower maintenance, etc.
and yes, both of my cages are wagons: Volvo flying brick and VW Jetta TDI. Love them both equally, but don't like the VW on long trips; it is a Jetta after all.
Might be a new Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo in the future (sorry for the huge photo):
That Panamera Sport Turismo has a great ass, but I still can't stand the badger ugly (chews own arm off to avoid waking up next to it) butter face.
That would look great with wood panels on the sides.
