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.
