    You might find yourself needing more space in the future so make sure you check out the XV's trunk space before deciding to get it.

    Check out the Subaru PMS thread here in the forums. Its not the maintenance cost that would might give you headaches but rather parts availability and cost.

    Exactly the same options for a wife a few months back. She ended up paying for a Forester XT, instead. But among the 3 with wife and baby on board, I will get the HR-V. If you can save a bit, get a Forester. Hindi ka magsisisi.

    Thanks for the input guys, yes practicality-wise hr-v is the best choice, I'm just a little bit worried with the cvt driving feel, is it really that numb and rubberband like feel based on what I've read on some reviews?

    The subcompact crossovers TOTL almost same price ng base model ng compact crossovers right? if ever TOTL hr-v vs base model ng forester which is the better choice? (As much as I want the XT but limited pa budget :D)

    rubber band feel? that happens when going very fast and letting go of the gas pedal, very minimal, it feels like an engine breaking, you wont notice it in everyday driving..

    i drive a xt, once the novelty of going fast fades, it becomes just another daily driver.

    Yep, a Forester 2.0i-L would be a more practical buy over a TOTL subcompact crossover. The novelty of the features will fade over time but the additional space and comfort will be useful over the lifetime of the car. We did check the HRV last year when we were shopping for a crossover. I felt that a CRV is a much better choice over it.

    If you're used to driving an automatic, there won't be much of a difference except that with CVT, the sensation of going fast is not like the traditional AT or DCT. There is no sensation of going up thru the gears.

    Yep, very true. My Forester XT is a good daily driver and it drives more like a big and tall sedan. It just happens that it gets up to speed quicker than most cars on the road.

    Exactly what I saw in that brand, it's a fast car, it's a rally car. But these days who really makes slow cars unless they want to file for bankruptcy in the near future.

    A year ago i was choosing between that HRV and my Nissan Juke. Now, i wanna sell my Nissan Juke.

    There are just too many factors now in Metro Manila road conditions. These types of cars are like bringing a knife to a gun battle,

    cx-5 is also worth looking in to, if titignan mo forester. with yojin at least factored in na yung oil/labor maintenance mo sa short term.
