About Subaru Legacy

The Subaru Legacy has always stood out with its traction-enhancing all-wheel drive, yet in the face of rivals with household names like the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, Subaru's midsize sedan received only marginal attention. But with a total revamp for 2015, the Subaru Legacy deserves real consideration. With a more appealing design, far better technology and improved fuel efficiency, the new Legacy is a legitimate contender among family sedans. Available with a 4-cylinder engine rated up to 36 mpg or a strong and smooth 6-cylinder that makes passing a breeze, the Legacy ranges from a roughly $22,500 deal to a $30,000-plus leather-laden sedan filled with creature comforts. All-wheel drive (AWD) remains standard, but with its rebirth for 2015, it's not the Legacy's only highlight.

"I got my Legacy slightly used with only 4200 miles on it. I think this is the best car I've ever owned!!! I couldn't be happier with my decision. The interior is beautiful with the black leather and the seats are extremely comfortable. The ride is smooth and quiet and the power is amazing. The engine shifts through gears so smooth you don't even notice unless you keep an eye on the RPM's. If you even have a hint of buying this car, please do yourself a favor and BUY IT!! This is the best mid sized car out there, believe me, I looked around. Now, I actually look forward to going to work so I can drive my Legacy!"

"So many cars; so little time. I've owned many different brands but the Legacy might be the one I stick with. Mine is a 2010, 76K, and adding 2K per month. Symetrical AWD is tops -- always on, no doubts about grip. I average 32mpg on summer blends and 29+ on winter blends. Large, comfortable, fairly quiet inside at speed and definitely reliable. Only non-routine service points have been headlight bulb replacements. They are owner-serviceable but it's well worth the few bucks the dealer charges. My OEM tires lasted 65K before I replaced them -- unbelieveable. CVT with paddles is sufficiently engaging. No race car, but I get a lot out of the combination when I want to play. Really nice build quality and quite decent interior materials. Overall styling could be better but that is subjective. No hesitation to take clients and customers out in this car. The car always elicits compliments."

"I traded in a 2002 VW Passat manual, so the AWD CVT Subaru Legacy Limited is quite a change. Its mileage is equal to the Passat. It has a pleasing interior (black leather), and attractive ruby red exterior. The paddles are good for quick downshifting to a stop. The engine and CVT produce enough power to meet my needs. It can bcome noisy under acceleration. The ride is comfortable, but inconsistant, with some bumps surprisingly jarring. It is sensitive to wind shear. It's good about town, but a little tiring to drive on a highway trip - it seems subject to "drift", so one has to pay attention. The jury's still out on this Subaru. A longer test drive might have led to a different choice. There is a lot to like about this car. Paddles, remote start, Bluetooth, interior, front end sheet metal, great paint job, headroom, comfortable seats, easy cruise control. Automatic headlights. Needing improvement: A little more work on the suspension. Crisper handling so highway driving is less of a chore. More sound-deadening for the engine compartment. A less tinny sounding trunk lid."
