The short test drive at the Chicago auto show last month made the price of parking and admission almost worth it. It was about a mile down MLK and back, so some bumpy potholes without any highway or corners. Non turbo model, CVT. The suspension soaked up bumps well enough, and power was adequate. Can't really comment on the CVT, since I didn't drive it up or down big hills. Interior was a step up from the current Forester. The Eyesight system was annoying and felt like a drunk driver was hitting the brakes while I was telling him what to do. Anyway, that's my 2c.
