2012 Subaru Impreza: The Upside Of CVTs

November 20, 2012

One underappreciated aspect of our longterm 2012 Subaru Impreza's continuously variable transmission is its smoothness. No gearchanges equals no shift shock. Just smoooooth acceleration all the time. I do have a quibble about its throttle tip-in at slow speeds, though. It's too abrupt, probably to give the impression that there's more grunt available than what's really there once you delve deeper into the throttle.
