Keep in mind that the Consumer Reports review was based on the LE trim, which to be fair does have it's fair share of interior plastic.

Yes, definitely keeping that in mind. I had noticed it was essentially a base model, which is a fair review in its own right, but it would also be nice to compare loaded vehicles.

CR's test vehicle is a Lunar Rock XLE.

XLE Premium has full sofTex seats and the same 19" wheels as the Limited, but doesn't have the full soft touch surfaces on the doors that the Adventure and Limited have.

Just FWIW, many late model vehicles, perhaps including the new gas RAV and certainly the Forester I owned, spend a lot of energy on shiny objects and electronic helpers. The drivetrains not so much. So we get loud and underpowered, and soon the chrome, moon roofs and lane assist that beeps all the time doesnít look so good. But we wish for quiet, smooth ride, comfy seats that adjust, adequate power, and simplicity, or at least I do.
