2005 Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT Limited AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


The perforated leather seats, dual
climate control and large sunroof were
far classier than other comparable
models built by Subaru's competitors.
The cornering and stopping
capabilities of this model are
astounding due to the lower
positioning of the boxer style
engine. The sportshift automatic
transmission allows for manual shifts
which makes driving incredibly fun.
The turbo model has on demand
power at almost all speeds above
15mph. Some competitors boast more
power under the hood but the Legacy is
geared lower which results in better

Best Features

Unparalleled cornering and stopping power thanks to AWD. Perforated leather and large sunroof round out the interior well. Turbo model balances fuel efficiency and acceleration needs well.

Worst Features

Larger space in backseats to accommodate 6ft adults. A longer wheelbase would be preferred to shrinking the cargo space. Trailer towing capacity comparable to the Outback. 0-60 in quicker than 6.0 seconds, perhaps 5.3. Transmission and differentials gear changes could do this.
