Most of those competitors don't offer AWD though.

New Chrysler 200 will also have it.

Maybe they're "cornering" it, but seems like a pretty small corner. The take rate for AWD for Fusion is pretty low in the overall national mix, I think ~5% last figures I saw.

People that want AWD are generally okay with getting the compact CUV's like RAV4, CR-V, etc.

That's right, glad to see the 200 get it optional too. Doesn't have to be a volume seller (AWD) by any means. Just the fact these companies offer it in a segment that overall lacks it is

Subaru quit selling Legacy wagons (and Outback sedans) a number of years ago in the American market because of low sales of each, and, of course, the huge popularity of the Outback wagon itself.

Wit the possible exception of the 2002 model and its round headlights, was there EVER a good-looking WRX?

subaru has never been known for hp (except wrx/sti) or fuel economy. they're loved for reliability and awd, and 'frumpiness'

having said that, looking at the pic of that subaru in the still of the youtube video there, it looks a lot like the new sonata or genesis.
