    Out on the road the feelings of average continue. My Prius was undriveable even with snow tires and our Sonata barely managed to cut the mustard with snow tires. The last of the Northstars were everything a Cadillac engine should be, smooth, powerful and Hampton Falls, NH A few body lines and features make it attractive and eye-catching, like the large wheel arches and the oversized angled headlights.

    Review: Subaru Legacy R - The Truth About Cars

    Once upon a time, when friends rode in your Subie they were intrigued by its quirks and idiosyncrasies. As time moved on though, everything has become increasingly mainstream.

    Well, except for the French. To prove the point we hit Subaru up for a Legacy 3. When the Legacy arrived on my doorstep, I had trouble picking it out from all the other cars on the street. The usual Subaru styling cues are gone and in their place we have some sexy curves, some hard lines, fender bulges and a subdued grille.

    Sounds good so far, right? The campaign is supposed to be lampooning the Camry, Accord and Fusion, but in the end it becomes one of the most ironic commercials ever made. Because the Legacy is by far the most mainstream vehicle Subaru has ever produced. Subaru offers the Legacy in three trim levels: Compared to the competition these power figures are adequate in a middle-of-the-pack kind of way.

    Gone are the soft touch plastics previous generations enjoyed and in their place are plastics that look good but feel cheap. Rounding out the mixed bag interior is quite possibly the best almost-metal trim I have seen. Not only does the faux metal fool you, but it seduces you into caressing it on the steering wheel and centre console, yielding satisfying tactile feedback.

    Proving that Subaru knows how to make a vehicle for the average Joe, the fit and finish of the interior is on par with what I expect from GM: Adding insult to haptic injury is the feature list of the lesser Legacys Legacies? Gone are the semi-athletic adjectives you could use to describe Subarus of yore. Ten years ago, AWD was an intriguing novelty in a mass-market sedan. Yes the Symmetrical AWD system Subaru uses is without a doubt superior in terms of feel and function to the Haldex sip-and-grip systems Ford uses, but does Joe-six-pack care?

    Out on the road the feelings of average continue. Steering feel is slightly numb, road feel is isolated, acceleration to 60 happens in 7 seconds flat and the car stops like your average family hauler. I had hoped for a bit more driving wasabi, but all I ended up getting was vanilla pudding.

    And the end of the day, the Legacy drives just like I would expect an AWD Camry to drive, which makes sense because passengers frequently confused the Subaru for a Camry. The only thing unusual about the Legacy these days beats under the hood: Sadly when it comes to weight distribution, handling, performance, smoothness, etc.

    The proof is in that vanilla pudding: Sure the Legacy is bigger, but stacked up against the much heavier AWD Ford Taurus, the Legacy still feels heavy and soft despite gaining only 50lbs over the Legacy. Sadly Subaru thought Americans wanted more cylinders instead of more power so the 2. How average is that?

    FB fans, here are your answers: I thought about trying but honestly got too bored. Catching air is against the press car loan agreement, sorry. Subaru provided the vehicle, insurance and one tank of gas for this review. We have to remember this is a gigantic Japanese company who was only every really quirky in the US because their marketing data was probably incomplete, their dealer network sparse, and their sales dependent almost wholly on New Englanders and Coloradoans.
