I am seriously thinking about buying one "for my wife." Are the new models more comfortable than the early models? I remember the front seats being really hard and worse in the back with not much leg room.

Is the turbo worth it?

The new model definitely feels more like a small luxury SUV, which I'm on the fence about at the moment. I can't speak for the back seat because I'm never back there, but I'd assume for a small person like me, it would be quite comfortable. For myself, turbo is worth it, I am a tad bit of a speed junkie and it seems as of late, nobody in this city can drive, in which turbo works out to my advantage. But with that being said, the n/a version is honestly super, super fun. For a 2.5L engine in a bigger body, it has quite a bit of power. Besides watching my fuel mileage drop like a rock because of the break in period, I myself have no regrets about said vehicle.

2005 Subaru WRX wagon Stage 2 with all weathers. Its lowered about 1 1/2 inches on Tein coil overs and has a lip on the front so it gets a little sketchy when the terrain is rough.

99 explorer sport! It's old, has a good number of miles, it's falling apart, and you can tell the engine is tired. But its paid off and it gets me a few hours away continually! It's a beater for sure. My Infiniti does not come out once the salt hits the roads.

01 Civic 5 speed. Just put 2 Cooper WeatherMasters on it and it crawls like a champ. Took it up a iced over driveway with a serious incline and it never once slipped. Couldn't imagine how stable it would be if the rears had snow shoes as well. Plus it gets 45mpg. Can't beat that!
