Trying to find my wife a useful non-barge wagon or SUV, looked at Outback, took a chance on Forester. Congratulating myself. Turbo is very quick, handles way better than most sedans, feels bulletproof, great build quality. Took it from GA to New England over holidays, got into big snow, AWD very confidence building. Highly recommend.
Rush to redline in second. Front seating position and comfort. Big sunroof. Usefulness of area behind front seats.
Like everybody else, a couple inches rear legroom.
