I've owned Hondas and a VW in the past and am able to say my Subaru Wagon is a nice mix of both Honda's reliability and VW's style and handling. The acceleration in Sport mode is decent but what is most impressive is the excellent, smooth, quiet, luxurious ride and sharp handling. It's a fun car to drive and the build quality is evident.
