Don't see any EPA ratings or specs yet other than 'most efficient crossover' claims.

It's a "mild hybrid" forget about it. They're no good compared to what we have or a Prius/TCH for fuel efficiency

The new Nissan Pathfinder and Infiniti QX60 Hybrids are so heavy then can't run on EV only at any speed. Their MPG is only 26, hardly worth the effort.

Some Subaru spec's are here.

Strangely, the hybrids mpg's are 25/33, almost the same as the standard 4 cylinder Boxer ICE in the '13 model (25/28).

I like Subaru's, my sister has had 2 or 3 and they have been bulletproof.  She lives in the woods of Oregon, dodging turkeys, varmints and deer.

Her '09 Outback gets an easy 25-28 all the time.

 

Putting the badge with the word 'hybrid' with a green leaf attached are more for marketing and public opinion for some car models.

Very few hybrid sedans can do what our cars do in the size and model range, and there are none that can do all the things that ours can.

Over on that "other" forum they are praising the HiHy as some miracle vehicle, when in reality it only gets what a properly driven MKT gets, yet the MKT isnt a Hybrid, and can tow 4500#.  They are only getting about 23 MPG in them, and I easily got 23 in the MKT I drove. So, whats the big deal?   Badges? We no need no stinkin badges!
