My Vehicle: 2013 XV 2.0i 6MT Luxury
Default Hello from Belgium

Hello there, I'm Joost from Belgium.
After a lifetime of driving Japanese cars, I finally ordered my first Subaru.
2.0i XV (as the Crosstrek is known here), 6 speed manual in Obsidian Black Pearl.
I should take delivery of the car next month.

Hi Joost, welcome. Wish we could get the 6 speed in North America.

Hey, Joost, welcome! Thank you for signing up, I hope ClubCrosstrek offers you everything you are looking for.

You will truly love your Crosstrek. As I just posted to another new member, my Crosstrek is still impressing me and proving itself more and more worthy day after day.

Yeah, I have to say I'm a bit baffled that you guys only get the 5 speed. Is it because Americans mostly opt for automatic?

And thanks for the welcome, guys!

While it is true that most Americans drive an automatic, I don't think that's any reason not to sell the 6MT. If anything, people who want a manual transmission like driving MORE and want MORE control of their car (otherwise they would opt for automatic) so it seems a 6MT would be even more attractive to them.

That said, I do love driving a manual but I still opted for automatic because of how much time I sit in LA traffic.

Yup, wish we had the 6mt here in the states. I figured its subaru of America not choosing to give us the 6mt. Kinda like how ford of America won't give us the Focus RS. A 6mt would be so nice. Maybe that's in next years XV for the US.

I think a lot is on the horizon for the XV. I recently read that Subaru is increasing their production of the Crosstrek by TEN times this year to meet the demand.
