2005 Subaru Legacy 2.5i AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


I waited three weeks to be able to test drive my '05 Legacy GT Ltd. and it was absoultelym worth it. I had compared this car to the Acura TSX, Audi A4 and BMW 325xi. The Legacy is by far the most sporting of the bunch. Power delivery is typical of a turbocharged car, but there is enough grunt from the 2.5 off-boost to keep it from being an annoyance. the handling is crisp, yet it doesn't punish you over rough surfaces. The interior is first rate, and the only complaints there are the stereo which sounds a little dull, and the cupholder which places large drinks in the path of the driver's elbox when shifting into 2nd, 4th or reverse. Great job Subaru!

Best Features

Turbo power with AWD stability and traction, and styling that is bold but not "look-at-me".

Worst Features

Better sound systems (you can't change it since it's built into the dashboard) and a revised cupholder design that keeps water bottles from hampering shifting.
