Our third Subaru since 1996. The car has evolved in ten years & has a fit & finish expected in cars over $40K. Went with the 175hp because it runs on regular unleaded & we plan to give it to kids in 6 years, engine power better than expected & fine for daily driving. If you require power to satisfy your manly needs for speed go with the turbo, forget the six -- not worth the extra cash. Averaging 23.8 MPG according to on board computer based on a mixed daily highway & suburban 70 mile commute. The ride & handling are tight & make for a sportscar like feel does not feel you are in a wagon. The sunroof is huge and lets in the light; a must in the winter cloudy Midwest. Best value in AWD buy it!
Sunroof, tinting rearview, side view mirror & wiper defrost, overall looks and finish, paid $26.9K before taxes & rebates. Leather, AWD, moonroof, 6 disk cd, great reliability, still the best value in the AWD category. Why pay $10K+ or more for a AWD Volvo, Saab, US makers way behind in the AWD.
Rear middle seating below average. Like other Subas we owned funky cup holder armrest design present in front. Limited storage for rear passengers. Not a car for people with big feet, got big feet you won't like it.
