I've owned this car for a little over a year now, and love it. I have the GT model, which gives you an upgraded interior, and a traction control system. As a wagon, it's extremely practical. It can easily haul 4 adults and their gear for a weekend getaway. The driver's seat is 6-way adjustable and is very comfortable. The back seats are comfortable and have plenty of legroom. The trunk is massive and can swallow tons of stuff (not literally obviously). I'm about 5' 11" and I can comfortably lie down in the trunk with the back seats folded down. Speaking of cargo, there's also a roof rack should you be wanting to put a travel box up there.
The All Wheel Drive system is excellent and provides great control even in low traction scenarios (if your tires are good). The GT model has a torque vectoring center differential that sends 70% of the torque to the front and 30% to the rear under normal driving conditions. However, if it detects wheel slippage, it locks up and splits the torque 50/50. The front differential is open and the rear is limited slip. If you're not very technical, this setup basically gives you excellent control of the car even in snow or mud.
The only complaints I have about this car are performance and gas mileage. The 4 cylinder engine makes 165 horsepower which is usually enough for daily driving, but it can struggle with passing at times. The gas mileage is also average, between upper teens and lower 20s depending on how you drive it, but it could definitely be better.
This is the first car I've owned and it definitely was a good purchase. It's extremely reliable and practical. I highly recommend it!
