My 2015 rogue rpms are slightly lower than your Subaru, only thing I dislike about the CVT is that it doesn't seem to try to make hills without increasing RPM's I'd like to see the driver be able to set how many MPH it allows cruise control to slow down when going up hill. Cruise is enabled anytime almost every time I'm going more than 2 miles.

Maybe Toyota should consider adding an engine-braking function to its CVTs, in a way similar to what is available for its hybrids. It would provide more peace of mind on mountain roads and decrease wear on the brakes.

no noticeable engine or electrical assisted braking tell about 13mph unless it's in Manual mode..
(yeah it has regen but it's hardly noticeable )

I regenerate for tailgaters (it turns on the brake lights) lol

IIRC there is no manual mode on Toyota's HSD, unless for some Hino trucks. What I was considering is that B position on the shifter of Toyota hybrids.
