Subaru Forester XT
 
Does anyone know if the 2009-2013 Forester XT Turbo came with a manual transmission option in the US?

I know the second gen Forester XT did but I'm not a fan of the styling.

No, unfortunately no manual in the US. Blame the sales division. Technically a manual was possible and existed in other markets, Europe for example. It had a 5 speed manual like the 2.5X, but I do not know how different the gear ratios and final drive were.

Awww, dang it. It caught my interest when I saw one in a parking lot. I loved the sporty looks with the mesh grille and hood scoop, and especially the fact that it's equipped with a sporty, turbo engine. As usual, Europe gets the cool stuff.

Sigh, nevermind then.:hmm: Thank you for answering.
