This is my first Subie after years owning German cars. I am really surprised at this little package of fun & all-wheel-drive. It is very comfortable and seems much bigger when sitting in it then I expected. I also had my eye on the Mazda 3 but was sold on the AWD.
The AWD, the seats are more comfortable then they look. Also I really like the red dashboard lighting.
Some of the plastic feels a little cheap. Offer an upgraded stereo. Maybe a leather option.
