More torque would be greatly accepted
However, feathering the accelerator for the slow increase is still pretty legit for me...

The Girlfriend commented that she didn't like how we could be traveling 90km/h while only feeling like we're going 60. I think it's just fine

My main complaint is that when buying the limited there should be more options that go along with that. Like the power seats, lumbar support. The heated seat switches could stand to be moved forward maybe a little more accessible. I wish the doors locked automatically like my grand Cherokee did once you start driving. Just little things like that but all in all I love our Crosstrek those are minor things I can live without but would be nice to have

Theses are great changes. I would like to add to the list. Push button start and auto lock when leaving the car. Temp guage, battery meter, trany temp, and tire pressure readout.

More powerful antenna or receiver. I listen to the radio a lot. I live between NY and Philly and I can go in many directions and start losing reception. I go under a bridge or a short tunnel I lose reception. I don't experience this with my other cars.

More HP/Torque please. Not asking for a turbo cause I do like the gas mileage and the lack of having to buy premium fuel. Maybe just the existing 2.5 engine bored out or something.

Make the radio able to sync the contacts from your phone so you don't have to enter them manually. That has been my only real annoyance so far.

As others have said, HP/torque would be biggest for me. The car is fun but I would love a turbo in it. Besides that, lumbar support, better quality radio (it lacks considerably compared to the CD/BT/USB/AUX), small things like that. Nothing really huge for me.

Also, moved this topic to Crosstrek Chat as it is more generalized and not specific to interior.
