I just got it so this will be a preliminary review. So far I'm very impressed with this "freshened up" model. Very attractive vehicle, quiet interior, good power. Have only driven one day but am fairly car savvy and know about Subaru since it's earlier days. They keep improving on a good thing and don't cheapen their cars like other companies to save money. I saw the car in April at the NY auto show. One of my old cars was up for inspection and I decided to trade in for this puppy. So far, I love it.
Very roomy in front seats and rear. Good cloth seats which used to be a problem with Subaru. The new engine and CVT combination work beautifully without hesitation. So far I think the car can achieve the EPA mileage ratings if one is careful. Air Conditioning feels good, radio sounds full and rich in my Premium model, alloy wheels are gorgeous, the Graphite Grey is amazing.The steering is tight and very responsive--well weighted like some of the European cars. Fit and finish seem excellent, nice trunk, haven't done the blue tooth yet but sure it will work great. Lots of cool features and the safety of all wheel drive by a company that really pioneered some of the best iterations of this form
Too soon to make suggestions. Will have to own for a while.
