The leather does have a more musky animal hide smell these days (it smells like leather). The Infiniti has a much better quality supple leather seating than the Subie. Even the fake leather sections on the sides are of better quality. But, I do like driving the new Subie because it is light and nimble.
I sure am missing that new car smell. My wife ran over a skunk in my Impreza and now that's all I can smell. Left the car outside for about two nights ran the car through through the car wash with the undercarriage spray and then left windows down in the garage overnight to let the last little bit out of the interior. Inside is much better now, but I can still smell it in the drivers rear wheel well
