    The current US version has this dip in it. Actually I think only the Australian version offers the flat floor, and you have it because you have a full size spare, or can be optioned to have a full spare. We have a dropped floor for more cargo area, but limited to a space saver.

    Oh does it?..I didn't know that!
    That gives me hope that the Aussie model will still have the flat back then.

    I think the set up will remain essentially the same as the last gen CrossTrek:

    2.0i Base - manual, black mirrors, alloy wheels, fog, 6.5 inch screen with back up camera/Bluetooth, basic cloth

    Jumping to a premium would add heated seats, heated mirrors, upgraded cloth, cargo tray, cargo cover.

    I wish they would come out with some form of brochure. I want to know if they will offer something other than black interior for the seats. On the '17 a beige is only available on the Red and one Blue. If the '18 is only going to have black I may as well go ahead and buy the '17 now.

    i was hesitant based on the shadowy teaser image pre-show... but i really like how it turned out. the pale blue is gorgeous. maybe i can convince the lady friend to go crosstrek for the dogs.

    I'm really interested to hear the rest of the US-market details, too -- colors, option packages, whether they will still offer a manual. I imagine we won't get all the details till sometime this summer, though, when Subaru gets close to opening the MY2018 order books. They won't want to divert too much attention to the new model too early, because doing that might impact sales of the 2017s ...

    was it confirmed the european market loses manual? if so, i would place all bets against the USDM having a manual option. that said, i test-drove the 2017 crosstrek manual at the behest of fellow forumites and actually narrowly preferred the CVT (it pains me to say that. i strongly dislike CVT and i've never owned a car with an automatic.)

    Sounds like you did the same as me when I bought my 2014 CVT, after test driving the 5MT. After driving manual transmissions for 25 years I settled for the Crosstrek CVT and I'm not very happy with it, I wan't to go back to manual but want a car will some ballz, more luxury and a smother ride. Hope to see a VW Alltrack or Audi A3 quattro manual transmission option brought to the states. There is also hope the next generation Forester looks more like a car then a brick on wheels.
    Interested in seeing if the new 2018 global chassis improved the ride, noise and vibration but without 175-HP or better and like a high 7s 0-60 time I'm not I buyer.

    My wife has a '16 Forester with CVT, which I like, mostly. When going from reverse to drive, there is an unusually long pause before it is ready to go forward. I've never driven any automatic that has this long of a pause.
