2019 Outback Limited 2.5i
Your logical fallacy is anecdotal.New poster, I test drove both engines and the Turbo was just a better experience overall especially on the highway, so I picked that. We do a lot of drives to my Partner's parents' house, which is an hour drive through nowhere Kansas. Kansas drivers are very frustrating (slow, do not pay attention, scared of any weather that is not sunny for some weird reason), the extra Zip really helped me get around those drivers. As another comparison, I actually took mine in today to get a hitch and the audio upgraded and took a Crosstrek loaner. After 2 minutes, I was already really missing the turbo. Yeah, the gas mileage is not the best, but honestly compared to my Focus (which averaged about 28 mpg overall), I don't really mind. Now if they get a powerful hybrid option, it would be possible to get closer to have your cake and eat it too.
