    I agree on the "lackluster powertrain." Subaru has been pushing uninspired combinations of weaker engines coupled to CVTs on the Impreza, Legacy, Outback and Crosstrek for years. This has been done seemingly to inflate the EPA mpg numbers even though they seem to be MUCH lower than real world efficiency in this case. You know what? A lot of people don't care. While I'm unimpressed, the larger public has been scooping these things up. Subaru is selling most of its cars with boring, buzzy powertrains that don't deliver promised efficiency and their sales growth over the past decade+ is the envy of just about any other automaker.
