2011 Subaru Legacy review

The Subaru Legacy has been redesigned for 2010 and now boasts a bigger backseat and improved gas mileage, with the same nimble steering the 2009 model had. Snowbelt drivers will appreciate its standard all-wheel drive, which few competitors offer.

Among midsize family sedans, the Legacy is a jack of all trades. In trying to do everything, though, it doesn't master very much. The Legacy doesn't feel as high-rent as some of its competitors Ч particularly the suburb-infesting Honda Accord. Nor will its polarizing styling work for everyone.

The 2010 Legacy Ч you can compare it with the '09 model here Ч comes in base, Premium and Limited trim levels, with a four- or six-cylinder engine. The related Outback wagon, also redesigned for 2010, is covered here. I drove a four-cylinder Legacy Limited. There's also a turbocharged four-cylinder available in Premium and Limited trims, though it only comes with a stick shift.
