CNET recently reviewed Subaru’s midsize sedan, the 2015 Legacy which aims to compete with the Toyota Camry, Ford Fusion,Chevrolet Malibu in the sedan category. According to the review, Subaru’s Legacy isn’t all that bad even for long drives.
Here are the highlights:
- Subaru traditionally sits outside the mainstream, offering crossovers popular to outdoorsy types and rally-bred cars for boy racers. The Legacy, however, settles neatly into the midsize sedan category with comfortable seating for five, big trunk space, and an economical engine.
- The Legacy comes with all-wheel-drive, standard. Subaru adds its corner braking technology, a system that lightly engages the brakes on the inside wheels in a turn to enhance handling.
- A continuously variable transmission (CVT) is not unheard of in this segment, but Subaru includes a manual mode, complete with paddle shifters, relying on six virtual shift points that can help during hill descents and other situations where you want more control over engine speed.
- The Subaru Legacy is available in the US starting at a list price of $21,695, while in Australia (where it takes the name “Liberty”), its MSRP begins at AU$43,676.
