It is getting difficult to find a car that doesn't have electric steering, subaru is still using hydraulic power steering which IMO is nicer though it didn't provide much feedback in the legacy either.
The ride is really good. Nice and firm feel with solid handling and not too much body roll considering the extra height. It rides more like a truck than I thought it would considering the Sentra chassis. Highway stability is great, it feels solid and planted. I have yet to see what the AWD will be like in the snow. I do plan on getting a set of snow tires for it at some point.
so far i'm pleased.
