Standard all-wheel drive has always been the Subaru Legacy’s claim to fame. Yet in the face well-established rivals like the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, Subaru's midsize sedan has gone largely unnoticed. Subaru intends to change all that with the completely redesigned 2015 model. Is the Legacy on track to becoming a household name? KBB’s Micah Muzio has the answer in this video.

      We (me and my family) had a 2013 Ford Focus (loved it) but we wrecked it from some idiot pulling out and only looking right, instead of both ways. Anyway, we had to get a new car, so we looked at the Subaru Legacy and a few cars from Ford. Long story short, we loved the Legacy because of the price (being hella inexpensive) and design. We've had it for maybe, ehh 3 months. I can't say we regret it and I get to drive it for my road test this Thursday. I can say, I do miss the Focus because it handled really well but offered really no leg room (I'm 6'2, so you could imagine lol, I mean in all fairness it is a compact car after all).

      I am not sure what people’s complaints are with CVTs, noise should not be a problem, all cars have noise anyway. Noise is just the little things.

      Update: unless it’s a Nissan, the amount of complaints I read on those are just enough to avoid Nissans.

      For a car that's supposed to have a simple design, it looks pretty nice in the interior and exterior.

      An update on my 2017 Subaru 2.5i, base model.

      We did not need all the extra bells and whistles, but we upgraded the interior with a Katzkin leather kit for about $400, 17" aftermarket rims, door panel guards, mud flaps, Homelink mirror, and a set of optional fog lights. Our total upgrades was about $1,200, which put the total cost around $22,000 before taxes. This was a much better option than buying the Premium model for $25,000 that had a lot of options we just don't want or really need, and still don't get a leather interior.

      Well, we are pleasantly surprised at how well the car runs and drives. The new chain driven CVT is much better than I thought it would be. For all of our normal driving, the acceleration is more than sufficient. In fact at only 3,000rpm, the car accelerates much faster than most normal driving we do. Initial acceleration from a dead stop does have a slight lag. However, it's mid to high acceleration band from say 20-80mph is pretty impressive. Once the CVT is locked up, it will take you from 20mph on a highway on-ramp to 70mph lickety-split. In fact it seems to accelerate onto the highway much faster and feels more stable than the Camry we test drove.
      The handling feels much better than a Camry, and is more inline with a Mazda 6. It is a very flat and sporty drive, yet the interior noise is very low, like a Camry. Cornering is very good, especially when you hit the accelerator on a corner, you can just feel the rear drive kicking in to push you around a corner vs plowing around a corner in a FWD only car.
      It is also a deceptively fast car. Because the interior is so quiet, the first time I hit the highway, I accelerated into the left lane, and found myself passing the right lane quite handily. I then realized I was going 85mph, and the car barely felt like it was going 60mph, because it such a smooth and quiet car. Part of that is the 17" rims, instead of the 18" rims on the sport models. I did notice from test driving the 17" rimmed cars do drive quieter and slightly smoother.
      Overall MPG is around 29-30mpg for us. On the highway alone it easily does 36mpg for those long flat road trips.

      Also, oil consumption is very low, which is a known issue with boxer engines. After 5,0000 miles, we did lose a little oil, but did not need to add any between oil changes. Looks like about 1/4qt loss at the most. And that is on a brand new engine that is still breaking in. As time has gone on, oil consumption appears to be less, and overall MPG's are slowly going up as the piston rings get seasoned and seat properly.

      So far, I would say I really recommend this car for anyone who wants an AWD family car, or just an all around good car to drive everyday.

      Pavel D1 okay.. legacy limited with every option.. tops out at 34,900.. the base has many standard features including touch screen audio with Apple CarPlay and back up camera.. so there is that.. at least the 2017 does.

      Cristian Gamez-Panuco That’s what I thought too but the truth is that Subaru is more expensive to than VW, yes way cheaper than Audi. Also VWs are a lot tougher than the media and most people portray it to be, do not believe me here’s 2 links:

      https://www.yourmechanic.com/article/the-most-and-least-expensive-cars-to-maintain-by-maddy-martin

      There’s a tried and true owner of VWs that will tell you that it’s not that bad:

      So, you're right, Toyota doesn't completely own Subaru. But, it still does own part of Subaru. Therefore Toyota does own Subaru. And, it's certainly not less than 5%.

      Wrong!  Toyota does not own Subaru.  Toyota bought a small percentage that someone else wanted to sell--I believe it is less than 5%.
