If you’re itching to see a lot of Subarus (and who isn’t?), go to to what place it rains and snows. All-wheel drive, standard in all Subaru models amass the Subaru BRZ sport coupe, has made Subarus dear in places like New England and the Pacific Northwest. But Subarus have evermore had something of a quirky nature, and meanwhile that may promote sales in Oregon, it has limited the Legacy from being a major player in the reasonable midsize sedan market.
But there are multiple quirks that hang for the 2016 Subaru Legacy. Chief among them is its standard all-wheel drive. True, small number competing midsize sedans tackle it, nonetheless regularly only on upper trim levels or by the whole of greater powerful engine options. It’s not only standard on the Subaru Legacy, but it doesn’t attain at the additional charge of a higher price tag or mpg figure. Another quirk is the horizontally opposed “boxer” engines (a 2.5-liter four-cylinder and a more powerful 3.6-liter six-cylinder), which have their benefits and detriments, but at the end of the day are most noteworthy for how few companies handle them. Both engines arrive exclusively with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) with steering-wheel-mounted paddle switches that attempt to simulate a manually shifted six-speed. That being said, this Subaru is definitely a great buy.
