Only speculation but when you only have 109 HP to work with you need a few RPM to accelerate. The CVT cruises at a lower RPM but when you step on the gas the RPMs come up quickly for more power. On a manual you would be downshifting a lot with a tall 5th gear.

Coming from a motorcycle background cruising at 3500 or 4000 RPM doesn't seem excessive at all.
