Subsaru should offer a sport seat option for the 2.0 XT. While the seats are comforable, they're flat and could use side bolsters.

What Our Members Are Saying about the Powertrain of the 2015 Subaru Forester

2015 Subaru Forester Powertrain: Pros

All wheel drive system is great. Hard to get the car stuck in snow.

The CVT is a little loud and crude until it warms up. Then you don't notice it's a CVT. Ridiculously low idle speeds. I haven't played with the paddle shifters much yet (had the car about three months and the engine is just over the 1,000 mile break-in). Acceleration is good; from a standing start, not much happens for a couple of seconds, then the turbo kicks in and it moves out nicely. Great on on-ramps and passing. I dind't think I'd like a CVT but I appreciate the fuel efficiency. I drive it 5 days a week to a train station, under 4 miles each way, and I wanted something that wouldn't eat me out of house and home paying for premium fuel. Although much bigger and heavier than my previous commuter car, an older Mitsubishi Eclipse, it gets slightly better gas mileage. Waiting to seehiow it does in the summer now that the vry cold Northeast winter is behind us. All-in-all, very pleased with the engine and powertrain.

CVT AWD
I've got the "base" 2.5 litre 4-cylinder "boxer" motor with standard AWD and the Continuously Variable Transmission. The powertrain IS powerful - even with just 170 HP on tap, I've got no issues with acceleration. The engine pulls smoothly (although sometimes noisily at higher RPM) and it's easy to get up to speed. The CVT is great... It takes a moment to get used to the "non-shifting" feel - not feeling the shift between gears. But, again, smooth and easy. Subaru has programmed some shift "feel" into the unit, so it's not like a solid ROAR of engine noise all the time. It "feels" like there is a shift between first and .. 2nd? and then onto "third"... Have yet to achieve the "promised" MPG levels, but I've got a bit of a heavy foot and have been using the A/C almost non-stop since day one - I live in the desert area of Southern California. Have not had any slippage or loss of traction - but I've played on some loose dirt roads and never lost any control.

Sometimes the engine gets a bit LOUD when you're accelerating. The CVT can be a bit .. touchy .. and can sometimes lurch from a stop. But otherwise, the powertrain is great.
