2015 Subaru Legacy

Pros: Spacious interior; controlled, comfortable ride; standard all-wheel drive; large trunk

Cons: Middling fuel economy with 6-cylinder engine; some ergonomic issues with climate controls and available navigation system

CG Says: The Subaru Legacy is redesigned for 2015, along with its SUV-esque wagon sibling, the Subaru Outback. Among the key improvements in the new Legacy are a more-refined interior, improved fuel economy, better passenger and cargo room, and new infotainment and safety features. The previous 2.5-liter 4-cylinder and 3.6-liter 6-cylinder engines are enhanced in terms of fuel efficiency and quietness, and a CVT is now the lone transmission with either engine. These midsize cars are pleasant to drive, have great interior room, and come with a lot of equipment at reasonable prices. Standard all-wheel drive is a bonus for snow-belt states. While any 2015 Subaru Legacy is a solid choice, we like the 3.6R models, which have good power and lots of features for the money.
