This is truly a great car. It is versatile, safe, reliable, and fun to drive. With 44.4 cu/ft of cargo space, 60/40 fold-flat seats, the car can handle anything I throw at it. With the car's AWD system and 6 standard air bags it offer's a level of confidence on the road unlike any of the other cars I test drove. Lastly, Subaru has found a great balance between ride and handling. The car rides completely different then it's predecessor with a subtle ride, yet still contains the prowess to be tossed into a turn. The car is not without it's faults, though, as the hard plastic that completely covers the interior and tires seem to amplify the little road noise that find their way into the cabin.
AWD, Comfortable Seats, Usability, Balance Between Handling Capabilities and Comfortable Ride, Reliability, Subtle Styling, Standard Safety Features, Quite Interior (Especially When Compared To Previous Models), Roomy Interior, and L.E.D Tail Lights
Hard Plastic Interior, Sound System (It's ok but could be better), Rear Drum Brakes (There strong but I would have preferred rear disc), Black Door Handles and Side Mirrors, and Noisy Tires Over Rough Surfaces Disturb An Otherwise Peaceful and Quiet Ride.
