I don't like the hatch mostly because the rear wing on it is oversized and gaudy.
And you don't want an AWD Auto Slushbox. Subaru's runs the automatic with a 80/20 front/rear power split by default (last I heard, maybe in more recent versions they changed it), so it's really just a front wheel drive. PLUS, the autobox is so damned expensive, that if it breaks out of warranty, you might as well part the car out or just sell it to a junk yard for $100.
In the future there probably won't be autos in the current sense, for low torque applications it will be CVT, for high torque it will probably be a manual with the auto-clutch/shift deely.
