Plush, but cool.

ReviewWe bought this car for my wife to drive, but I like it a lot, too. Its interior and exterior styling are cool and futuristic. (I even like the weird LED tail lights!) The upgraded stereo rocks, but I would rather listen to the unique sounding boxer engine. That engine is a little different than an inline 4. It produces punchy low end torque, but levels off the higher you rev. There's really no point in revving it over 3500 rpm! The slick shifter, loose clutch, and peppy engine make it ridiculously easy to drive. It's obvious that Subaru focused on utility and comfort for this model, at the sacrifice of agility and handling, but the full time all wheel drive rules!
Best FeaturesSound and feel of the boxer engine, unique appearance, ride quality, affordable all wheel drive.
Worst FeaturesCornering ability is disappointing, fuel economy is so-so. Some people might find the front seat too cramped.
