I wonder if the reprogrammed 6 speed automatic will be faster than the manual? Just curious. Is that something possible or they’ll have to add more gears to it to achieve that

Welcome @86maniac!

Its not yet clear what the gear ratios are or overall performance will be like.

Subaru will only confirm the two options:

"6-Speed Manual or Automatic with Paddle Shifters

Choose between the control of the standard close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission with short-throw shifter – upgraded for 2022 – or the convenience of the available reengineered 6-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters and downshift rev-matching."


Are there any areas you want them to improve on from the outgoing automatic/manual?

Welcome to the forum @86maniac! It's definitely possible that the auto will be faster than the manual. That's usually the case these days.

I believe the automatic will be faster than the manual though there will still be a lot of enthusiasts opting for the 6-speed manual.
