Does your CVT shift like a regular geared trans?

    My wife's 2010 Outback with CVT will go up to a certain RPM and stay there until the car gets up to speed. My 2017 Legacy supposedly has CVT but the RPMs (and feel of movement) act as though it has a 6 speed. I suspect it doesn't actually have CVT.
    Anyone else have a newer Legacy that has CVT do steady RPMs or is this some "feature" to make it feel like it has gears? In which case the point of having CVT is lost on me.
