About Subaru Legacy

In the world of family sedans, Subaru’s Legacy has gone from being a niche player to a genuine contender. Every bit as roomy, comfortable and efficient as a Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, the Subaru Legacy sedan for 2016 bests the competition by offering all-wheel drive (AWD) as standard equipment. An appealing design wrapped around a voluminous interior peppered with the latest infotainment and driver-assist technology, Subaru’s Legacy sedan for 2016 is the consummate family 4-door. The Legacy’s 4-cylinder engine is both peppy and fuel efficient, but there is a smooth and powerful 6-cylinder for those who prefer potent passing power to miserly fuel consumption. And, the AWD Legacy costs less than a front-drive Accord or Camry, with a starting price around $22,500.

"First off I love Hondas. I love their great quality and most everything about them, except driving in the harsh winters I drive in. When looking for a car I didn't really have this in mind when shopping. I test drove an Accord, Altima, and a Legacy. As soon as I took the Legacy for test drive it had me sold. My winter driving experience has drastically improved. From the amazing handling to smooth driving. I test drove while the roads were covered in ice, and the stability control was outstanding. The features available for the price was above average. All this and the peace of mind of all wheel drive had me sold, and I have to say I have no regrets going from my reliable Accord to this amazing Subaru!"

"After extensive research and test driving Camry's, Hondas, Mazdas, and VWs, my daughter recommended checking Subaru. I was about to purchase an Accord but decided to test drive the Legacy. The AWD and CVT give it a powerful feel. It feels as much power as my V6 Maxima. It is Smooth, Quiet, and roomy. I look forward to driving the car every day. I also got the eyesight package and love all the safety gadgets. I just hope they are reliable since this is new technology. I have been driving it for 4 months and so far LOVE it!"

"Drove through torrential downpours and several inches of snow and did not slip even once. The eyesight package is extremely helpful, especially in conditions where I cannot see."
