Safety & Pricing

The new Legacy has yet to be tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Standard safety features for 2010 include six airbags, an electronic stability system and antilock brakes. Click here to see the full list. Active head restraints are no longer included Ч they were standard last year Ч but Subaru says the 2010 Legacy's seats use a whiplash-mitigating design.

The base Legacy 2.5i starts at $19,995. That's $800 less than last year, and in league with competitors' base trims Ч 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.
