2009 Subaru Legacy 2.5i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
We bought this car after a whole year of online research and test drives. Completely satisfied after a month of ownership. We needed a safe car for our 5-year-old twins, and the Legacy is definitely that. It's also a real pleasure to drive. The overall impression is that it's extremely solid, but also very agile (not an easy combination). Steering is just about perfect -- responsive and precise. The engine is smooth and has good torque. Visibility is great. Simple, no hassle driving and parking. Interior design is very handsome and oozes quality. Not a large car, but big enough for a family of 4. Superior value for the money. I'll post again after driving in winter conditions.
Rugged feel combined with sharp handling. High quality construction. Attractive and driver-oriented interior.
Power seat memory. Turn signals on side mirrors. Storage for sunglasses.
