Subaru Forester Sport for the win overall
Overall the vehicle is worth the purchase price. I do find that, even in the sport model, the performance is a bit lacking. If you are not under the perfect conditions you will not really have much power when you put your foot down. I also do not like the CVT and the way it is programmed to feel like an automatic, I think this defeats the purpose to the CVT. As far as features go the vehicle has more than I need, including some that I do not want. The Eyesight suit, while noce for safety, can be rather annoying. They constantly beep and flash warnings at you. Aside from that I think the radio is really good, though the touch screen is a bit sluggish at times. There is plenty of room in all seats, though I wouldn't try fitting three adults in the back for more than a short drive. As a tall, and larger, person the driver's seat is good, though sometimes I find myself resting my leg in an uncomfortable position because the center console is very wide and leaves little room for me. I have yet to run into any mechanical issues, even at a little over 6,000 miles.
