All-weather package is the only feature of touring trim I found worthwhile. Navigation and infotainment systems are half-disabled when the car is moving. The CVT responds well in sport and sport# modes, but it's horrible in the "intelligent". So while the gas mileage is close to specs if I drive in the "intelligent" mode only, those numbers have little relevance in real life. Actual fuel efficiency is a lot worse - I get around 20 mpg on the average. Steering feels a bit artificial. The ride is quiet at constant speed, but gets very noisy with even modest acceleration. The cabin is reasonably comfortable except for an awkwardly positioned arm rest that I keep bumping into with my right elbow
The suspension is firm and well-tuned - much better than that of 2.5i models, even though the specs did not mention there was a difference.
Steering should be more precise on a model that's supposed to be fun to drive. And please, Subaru, stop trying to boost safety ratings by making navigation and infotainment systems unusable - I ended up putting my old Garmin on the dashboard.
