Best Mid-Size Car:

2015 Subaru Legacy

With fresh design, high-tech safety features and enhanced fuel economy, the reinvented-for-2015 Subaru Legacy offers a wholly rewarding package in its 6th-generation debut. While myriad aspects of Subaru's midsize sedan are new, one that hasn't changed is its exceptional resale value. Like its siblings that populate this year's Best Resale Value Awards, the 2015 Legacy takes the crown among midsize cars thanks to a reputation for reliability, a fervent fan base and a high value proposition.

Like every Subaru except the BRZ sports car, the Legacy comes with all-wheel drive (AWD). While more and more midsize sedans have followed the Legacy's lead in offering such traction-enhancing systems, the Legacy remains the only one to offer it standard -- and for thousands less than rivals. That attribute alone makes the Legacy the automatic choice for family sedan buyers in cold-weather states who require extra grip on snowy, slippery roads.

The Subaru Legacy's rebirth for 2015 includes an ample dose of technology that's both helpful and easier to use than past models. The latest EyeSight driver-assist system, for example, offers automatic emergency braking, while controls for the infotainment system are sleek and simple.

Efficiency is another attribute that makes the 2015 Legacy a winner, with 4-cylinder models attaining up to 36 mpg. For drivers seeking more gusto, a 256-horsepower 6-cylinder offers plenty of it. Though a manual transmission is no longer in the cards, the Subaru's standard CVT automatic is more efficient and more refined. Whether you opt for a sub-$23,000 base version or a premium, leather-laden model, the 2015 Subaru Legacy instills confidence on the road and assurance of an excellent long-term value.
