You're so OT and still misspelling it! Crosstrek.

I drove a CVT 2012 Impreza. It's a high-revver, so you can't expect it to perform like a standard auto. It's weird when you expect it to jolt to switch gears and it doesn't. When you lay on it, it feels like a turbo spooling infinitely. It's kinda cool, I think.

People say it's noisy, but quieter than other CVTs from other manufacturers. I was fine with it. I play my music loud or have the windows down to enjoy fresh air and sounds.

To sum up why a Crosstrek isn't an Impreza Sport:

Quote:
Crosstrek has a shorter wheelbase, wider track, raised suspension, revised suspension geometry, revised manual transmission ratios, larger radiator, reinforced chassis, more sound deadening, flat under body panels, larger brakes, larger gas tank... and more. That's in edition to the cosmetic differences.
