That's a good point, though I guess the same kind of risk (denting/scratching) remains regardless of method used, and I'm sure there are ways to mitigate the contact-point scratching and rubbing.
The 2.0i manual does not advise using a trailer assembly for towing (except for the Crosstrek). That would've been a preferred option for me as well.
