Don't get me wrong, CUV's and Crossovers will continue sell well, but Subaru does sell over 100,000 Outbacks a year in the U.S. alone, not bad numbers and sure they have good margins.
good to see you here again, Sierra
I've hoped for more diversity in vehicles forms for some time,

your lifted Awd Fusion wagon reminds of my Milan-CX
