We drove the turbocharged 2.5 GT Limited sedan with a five-speed manual transmission and enjoyed it very much. The engine's turbocharger comes on quickly, strongly and smoothly, the steering is...
... also responsive and handling limits are high enough to promote outbursts of enthusiasm.
Still, when driven at an everyday pace, the Legacy behaves not unlike its less athletic competitors. With a light steering effort and small turning circle, the Legacy is pleasant around town and in a parking lot. Likewise, highway ride is well within the range of comfortable. We'd expect similar ride and handling from the less-powerful 2.5i models. For even sharper handling and sportier accessories, check out the (very) limited edition 2.5 GT spec.B.
