Question 2012 Trim Levels: 2.0i vs. 2.0i Sport

I'm the happy owner of a 2012 Impreza 2.0i Limited 5-door. They had me when my salesman took me four wheeling in a local sand pit in a new car off his lot! I looked hard at the Sport Limited before ordering my car, but I could not find any difference that wasn't "cosmetic" like color options and wheels, and of course the roof rack. My dealer could not point out any other differences.

Now I'm wondering what I missed - my manual says my car is definitely not for off-road use, but that the 2.0i Sport can be used in "limited off-road use" (though it may void the warranty ). Going back to the specs, the only clue I can find is a diffence in ground clearance: 5.7" for my car and 5.9" for the Sport trims. Since sheels sizes are the same, this suggests suspension diferences. Can anybody enlighten me on these and any other "performance related" differences in the trim levels? Thanks!
