Horray for CVT!

ReviewI've had the car for two weeks and continue to be impressed with the design. The 2.5 is a little gutless off the line and under heavy acceleration, but it gets the job done and for the 26- 28 mpg I'm getting around the city on regular grade gas, it's well worth the trade. Averaged 32 mpg on a recent road trip. The CVT transmission is remarkably smooth and keeps the tach in a sweet spot. Handling is fantastic. What the Legacy lacks under the hood is more than made up for in the turns. Bluetooth works well, wheel controls are well placed, seats are comfortable and supportive and there is no lack of passenger space. No noticeable blind spots or tiny rear view issues as is common in many new cars.
Best FeaturesHandling, fuel economy, styling, smooth transmission, interior comfort and full time all wheel drive without the typical hit to MPG.
Worst FeaturesFully integrated satellite radio antenna, CVT on the turbo GT model, lose the MPG meter on the main display.
