    Why do I want all wheel drive? I live in a dry warm climate.
    All wheel drive is a full time traction system that is effective on dry as well as slick roads and helps maintain stability and control  under most conditions.
    It is a benefit in all driving conditions but of course especially any area where there is snow or rain including the Northwest, Northeast, Midwest.
    The BRZ is Subaru's only rear wheel drive car. It has a Limited slip rear axle. Introduced in 2012, it's built by Subaru but was was co-designed by Toyota and is also sold in the US as the Scion FR-S


    Is there an CUV or SUV?
    from small to large:  Crosstrek, Forester, Outback, and Tribeca.


    Is there a mini-van?
    No.
      The Tribeca is a 7 passenger

    Is there a Hybrid
    Yes, hopefully in 2013 as a 2014 model. No details are available. In the meantime the 2013 Impreza 2.0i gets 27/36 MPG and the Legacy gets 23/31

    Is there a Diesel
    Yes but it is not available in the US.

    2.0L Diesels with a manual transmission are available in other countries but not the US or Canada.
    Why?
    The potential US market for a Subaru diesel is small and Subaru is working on other technologies.
    Few diesels actually do well in the US. A gallon of diesel is frequently more expensive than a gallon of gas.
    Diesel in the US isn't as refined as other parts of the world and the newer, cleaner burning and quieter diesel engines don't run our stuff.
    Subaru diesels around the world are a 2.0L with a manual transmission - no automatic transmission. That won't work here... It would have to be auto.
    Diesel engines cost a lot to make and the price of the car would be high.
    Subaru is partnered with Toyota, the hybrid leader, and they don't do diesel here.

    what should this next question be?  Ideas welcome.
