The base Legacy 2.5i starts at $19,995. That's $800 less than last year, and in league with competitors' base trims not bad, given the Legacy's standard all-wheel drive. Other four-cylinder trims include the 2.5i Premium and 2.5i Limited. The six-cylinder Legacy 3.6R comes in base ($24,995), Premium ($25,995) and Limited ($27,995) trims, while the turbocharged 2.5GT comes only as a Premium ($27,995) or Limited ($29,995). Premium models get a power driver's seat, while the Limited adds a power passenger seat, leather upholstery and dual-zone automatic climate control. Heated seats, a moonroof and Harman Kardon audio are optional across most trims; the navigation system is optional only on the Limited trim level.

Check all the boxes, and a 2.5GT Limited tops out around $33,000.
