2011 Subaru Legacy Review

(3 Stars)  Better all around vehicle

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The Legacy is Subaru's most long lived model name. For 2010, the Legacy was again updated making it a bigger and more sophisticated car than its earlier incarnations. There were 5 earlier incarnations that make the current Legacy what it is today. It's grown larger and somewhat less sporty over the years, but it is now more family practical. Subaru is applauded as one of the most receptive companies to customer concerns and complaints about models and correcting them. They have done a commendable job with the new Legacy, where users wanted more space, more power, and a more capable vehicle. The new vehicle is larger, offers Subaru's superb all wheel drive system and offers a variety of engine choices. The styling may not appeal to everyone and the larger engines don't sip the gasoline, but many will be able to overlook these shortcomings and find a wonderful vehicle for all season driving.

The engine choices for the Legacy are the base 2.5 liter four cylinder (opposed horizontally as is a Subaru trademark) making 170 HP and comes mated to either a 6 speed manual or a CVT transmission.
