2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek Premium 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
bought the cvt premium with moonroof 12/22/12, waited until Mayan apocalypse was over!
I'm 6'4" and have plenty of legroom & even with the moonroof still had enough headroom.
not the fastest vehicle on the road, but plenty of power to get it moving, merging or passing on the highway, just need to punch it.
road noise isn't as bad as consumer reports describes, not sure what they're comparing it to?
gas mileage pretty good right out the gate, 28mpgs on 380mi trip doing 70-80 with fully loaded car and only 100 miles on it at start.
pretty impressed so far.
versatility for loading cargo.
peppy even with only 148hp.
visibility out front, sides & back is excellent.
mpgs & driving range.
easy to maneuver & parallel park in the city (big points for this).
front seats comfortable.
good amount of storage nooks & crannies up front.
doors open almost 90degrees from frame.
easy getting in & out.
having reserve power to close windows after shutting the engine off, have to turn key to power back up, fairly standard stuff now.
engine is very loud when you have to floor it & will hold on to high rpms than most people are used to.
other than that, not much to complain about.
