Post smoother shift with Outback? If yes, why?

This is for my friend. He was saying that Outback has a smoother shift than the RS. He was just wondering why and if the RS could be like that too. I've never driven an Outback before so I don't know anything about it. Thanks!

Legacy platform is more luxury oriented than the Impreza platform. More footroom, better interior (well, slightly better), etc etc.

Stands to reason they would do something different with the tranny.

I have no real answer though.

I think the gearing is the same. However, they may do something like use softer engine/tranny mounts in the Legacy. That would transmit less of the drivetrain movement to the cabin.
