Guys, Advise me. I want a car to carry a couple of canoes, go cross country skiing, and pull a small boat occasionally. I want a stick shift, and am not sure whether to get a Forester or a crosstrek. It looks like the next generation forester will not get a manual. Both cars could use a little more power. Is anyone able to either custom order or build a slightly more powerful car, ie something with a low pressure turbo? It has to be able to go offroad a little and definitely handle at least medium snow. Priorities. 1. A little more power, especially low end torque on pump gas. 2. Comfortable. I am getting old and have some low back pain.?? Recaros? 3. Very reliable. 4. HID headlights. see 2 above re getting old. 5. Stick shift. Thanks.
