I drove around the neighborhood and tried them out. They were fine. There's a nice steep hill near me I got to try the XMode out on, not one tire spun. Pretty boring cars in the snow with all of the traction control and ABS and bs. lol I went home and grabbed my Jeep to go play instead.

If you got the 6MT and turned off traction control, you can really get the thing sideways. It's a hoon to drive, at least it was in my 5MT with traction control off in the snow. The Lineartronic CVT is not as eager to get sideways...

But the Lineartronic CVT paired with X-MODE makes the XV/Crosstrek far more off-road capable than the single-range stick shift.

Wasn't interested in a 6 speed. I love the CVT. I'm more nervous about idiots on the road hitting it. My Jeep is pretty armored up and will bounce off. Ask the prius that t-boned me. He got his whole grill and headlights bashed in, I got a small fleck of white paint on my rocker from his car. lol I can drive my wife's car that we just picked up if it snows. No traction control to deal with at all.

Got a little dirt on the Xtrek today. Went along the North Fork Road for a bit with the family.
