Car is pleasant to look at but doesn't attract attention. The turbo gives it a serious turn of speed. Has been comfortable on long (7 hour) highway trips. Has performed well on off road camping excursions. Did very well last year during a major snowstorm and snow covered roads in Colorado (where every third car seemed to be a Subaru). Holds a surprising amount of gear. Longer wheelbase gives it a more comfortable highway ride than the Forester.
Car is fast in town, fast on the road, gets decent mileage, goes off road, is good in snow, has a luxurious attractive interior, and holds a surprising amount of gear.
Key is too big, remote door switch is too sensitive.
