2016 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: After its redesign last year, the 2016 Subaru Legacy gets revised power steering that Subaru says provides better feel. Subaru has also retuned the shock absorbers on Limited models. New safety features include available telematics emergency services, headlight on/off linked with the windshield wipers, and the optional EyeSight package now includes lane-departure mitigation. 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 Legacy is a solid choice, we like the 3.6R models, which have good power and lots of features for the money.
