2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek Limited 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl CVT)
I've only had my Crosstrek about 3 weeks now and I've put about 700 miles on it. I drive a mix of city and highway and have been averaging 28.8-29.1. My mom bought one a month before me and she drives only city in a busy shopping area, so she is not the most fuel-efficient driver (quick starts/stops). I absolutely LOVE this car - it handles so well, feels so secure and solid on the road, very comfortable, has all the conveniences I need (heated seats, rearview camera, HD radio, etc), and on top of that both my mom and I get compliments (esp the wheels) wherever we go! I love driving this car and am excited for the AWD in winter - this drives much better than my RAV4, glad I switched to Sub!
Heated seats, symmetrical all wheel drive, rearview camera, wheels, trunk liner and cargo cover, handling, very nice leather
More powerful engine (although afraid the gas mileage would decrease) - this one seems to struggle sometimes when merging on the highway or trying to pass, but then again my last 2 cars have been V6 engines so could just be me
