The Intrepid Adventurer of Midsize Sedans

The Subaru Legacy isn't just the only midsize sedan to include all-wheel drive as standard equipment, it's one of very few midsize sedans to even offer all-wheel drive at all. But while all-weather performance remains a calling card of Subaru and the Legacy, other strengths include a solid reputation for reliability and standout resale values. The Subaru Legacy is resilient in bad weather, and also stands up to the test of time.

The Legacy is a freshly relevant entry in a strong segment, thanks in large part to a refined powertrain, increased fuel economy, updated styling and a greatly improved infotainment offering that now includes standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. If you're looking for a midsize sedan with the added traction of all-wheel drive, the Legacy is number one on a very short list.

Driving It

From our full review of the 2018 Subaru Legacy: "The standard 2.5-liter 4-cylinder offers similar power as other 4-cylinder cars in this class, but the continuously variable transmission (CVT) actually makes it feel more responsive than you'd expect from 175 horsepower. Still, it's no rocket with that engine, and if you need more, the 3.6-liter 6-cylinder available in the Limited offers a more robust 256 horsepower that makes short work of passing and accelerating, albeit at the expense of fuel economy."
