Editor's Overview

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 now that the 2015 Legacy has been revamped with a new design, better fuel efficiency and much improved technology, it deserves real consideration.

Love my Subaru legacy and you will too.

This vehicle is amazing. Spacious and has many great features. Good for a family, has great cargo room and rides smooth on the highway. The AWD is amazing in the winter - love it! I have the limited that has read cam, lane departure alert, and lets you set your cruise and adjusts to the people ahead of you. Also has auto braking, to prevent crash - this is a feature that is nice but yet can get a little knit picky.

My Subaru legacy is the best!

I love my Subaru legacy! It is my second one and when it is time for me to get a new car, I will probably get another. The car is extremely safe, drives well in all conditions and looks great. I have received so many compliments on the car. It is small enough to park wherever I want but large enough to accommodate five people comfortably with a huge trunk for lots of shopping!

All-wheel drive under 25 mph and automatically engaged all-wheel drive in slick conditions. Very safe!

The Subaru Legacy really is a great car that fits my needs perfectly. I have not had any problems with it after a year of driving it. I have taken it on multiple road trips and it has never let me down! It is comfortable, steady and controllable, and it has pretty good gas mileage as well! It's really a terrific car, and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone!
