I recently purchased this car and have been very happy with it. The performance is excellent: the tight steering, acceleration, and the way the car sticks to the road. This is my third Subaru as I can't seem to part with the AWD. Definitely go with the premium package, it's worth it and adds pizzazz to the car.
Large engine for a small car (170HP), AWD, exterior trim with alloy wheels, neat display and layout in the interior.
Well, the car seats are low. In fact, the whole car is low to the ground, including the engine which may explain why the car hugs the road so well.
