There is no other comparable vehicle at the price. It cost around $21,000 at the time and is fairly loaded. All Wheel Drive (AWD) was not available in an American car, only trucks and SUVs, when I leased this vehicle. Every other AWD vehicle was well over $30,000. Although I drive conservatively, my favorite part of a trip is the twisty roads and exit ramps - because the car rides like it is on rails around turns. Heater works exceptional, even on the coldest Detroit, Cleveland and Pittsburgh days. 4 cylinder with plenty of power, even uphill and sips gas. Subaru builds quality small vehicles, not every manufacturer does that. Will probably purchase at the lease expiration.
The combination of All Wheel Drive with about 29-30 mpg on the highway and at least 25+mpg in the city. Good torque, even in the base 4 cylinder engine.
Seat belt chime silence after a few minutes. The chime is incessant while trying to warm the parked car up in winter. More comfortable headrest position, tends to always push my chin to my chest. What causes the Clunk on a cold day? It is like all the wheels are trying to get in sync.
