I came out of a 2003 Outback LL Bean Edition. I thought the B9 would be too big and clunky - that is, until I drove it. It took a few minutes to decide but I chose the B9 because it was a pleasure to drive.
Good range of options included.
The wipers are great, but, the connector is unique to this model so there are no options to add winter blades. They say they are winter capable. My experience says otherwise and would like the option of winter blades. Also need a roof-rack that can handle a box as this one is too far back.
