Bought the vehicle in May. Premium- Lane change warning active backup warning. (No eyesight) $27.5 OTD. CVT 152 HP 2.0 Boxer Engine. CVT it very nice never feels like it needs to shift. It has steel chain..feels very solid. 100K warranty on the tranny. It has paddle shifters which operates in the sport mode, they are OK but unnecessary for me. One thing is without going to the sport mods you can hit the downshift paddle and it will shift down to slow you down going downhill or coming to a stop. Its a nice feature. 2.0 Engine. Has been described as dogish. I find it fine. I redlined it from the very start. No detectable oil use. When you floor it, it gets up and goes. I never found it wanting. The wife's forester is the 2.0 XT. She asked me if its a turbo. She was impressed. My point its not inadequate (IMH) The trim is nice. The orange accent is nice. It fits. The infotainment system has Apple Carplay. I don't have auto climate control. It heats up very quickly. Heated seats have heat in the seat and back rest. The visibility is excellent as with all Subarus. Ride as very refined. Zero body lean. It handles extremely well. You sit up high. Ground clearance is 8.7". I have had it on a solid ice/snow hill at my gun club. I stopped in the middle and without X mode almost no slippage. I can't imagine it getting stuck unless it needed to push snow. The tires are all season and very good. Mileage in warm weather in short trips is 29 mpg and highway 35+ mpg. Winter 23 mpg on short trips and about 35 highway. I can't say it is as comfortable on trips as my Forester. But short trips I prefer the Crosstrek. Other than a recall, I have had zero problems with the vehicle. I'd buy it again.
