We bought a Legacy partly because everyone has an Outback, partly because it cost less than an Outback, and partly because it's cleaner looking than an Outback. People say it looks like an Audi. We haven't been a bit disappointed. Because it is 2.5" lower than an Outback our Legacy corners great on curvy roads and provides as much as 30 mpg on the highway.
Easy to use cruise control, select shifting on auto trans, confident handling, excellent cornering.
A lock out for 4th gear on auto transmission, 5 speed auto transmission, wider choice of interior colors, more comfortable front seats.
