I needed a midsized sedan that my wife would enjoy driving. My short list included the Ford Fusion, the Toyota Camry,and the Mazda 6. I test dove all four and the 2010 Subaru Legacy 2.5i with the new CVT transmission became my first choice. I like the styling, it looks expensive and it's clean aerodynamic line illicits lots of raves from friends. The car is roomy front and back and all the controls are accessed easily. The ride is solid with no swaying in the corners and adequate suspension on bumpy terrain. This is not a Hot Rod, it's 4 cylinder 170 HP engine with the new CVT automatic transmission gives you adequate acceleration for all sensible driving needs. Gas mileage 25/32.5.
I most liked the Passenger Roominess, the smooth operation of the CVT transmission, the outstanding gas mileage. The interior details. The Harmon Kardon sound system with Blue Tooth.
The car may be a tad underpowered with the 2.5i but the CVT helps compensate and the gas mileage is outstanding.
