While the Subaru WRX is certainly a very capable car, chances are, you may not want to attract that kind of attention on the road. I mean, how often do you think people will pull up next to you at the lights asking for a drag race? Thankfully, Subaru has a much quieter alternative.
The Subaru Legacy Premium comes equipped with a 2.5-liter, boxer engine capable of 175 horsepower and 174-lb.ft. of torque. Surprisingly, it has a great EPA estimated gas mileage rating of 26 city, 36 highway with a CVT transmission. While it’s a bit down on power in comparison to the Honda Accord Sport, and the Mazda 6, the Subaru Legacy has symmetrical all-wheel-drive. The all-wheel-drive system makes handling far more predictable in different weather conditions. Best of all, the 2.5i Premium begins at $23,845.
The Legacy is a great alternative to the Accord and the Mazda 6, and provides a different driving experience.
