I've been test driving several cars trying to decide on one. I started with Impreza initially and then tested others. Noticed when I came back a second time to test drive Impreza that it seems quite a bit more noisy in the cabin from the engine more than I recall the first time. Is this because of the CVT, boxer engine or both? It was a bit annoying. I also tested the Sport this time instead of the Limited because I liked the styling (don't need roof rails and like the cloth seats). Can anyone share their thoughts on this? I really wish it did not have a CVT (although I've heard Subaru CVTs are better than most and/or I can go manual but drive mostly city so don't want the constant shifting). I test drove the Mazda 3 and was quite impressed but not with the looks of it as much, etc. (Subaru AWD nice and styling) but the ride was great and I do not recall the engine being as loud (does not have a CVT).
