Excitement and cool factor aren’t what come to mind when we think of midsize cars. But that’s not necessarily the case with Subaru. Motorists who buy the Japanese carmaker’s large offerings still want the excitement associated with the brand. True enough, from our experience, the Legacy is one of the most heart-pounding midsize cars on the market today, and the new Legacy looks set to continue in that tradition.
Two engines are offered: a 2.5-cylinder four-cylinder mill which generates173hp and 235Nm of torque, and a 3.6-liter six-cylinder lump which produces 256hp and 350Nm of torque. Both powerplants are mated to a Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission. Symmetrical AWD is standard.
