Subaru Legacy 2.5i-S AWD CVT Review
Boxer better

It used to be that when owners of the much celebrated Subaru WRX ‘grew up’, they would graduate into the Legacy that used to share the engine and drivetrain of its performance oriented sibling. Since the last generation, Subaru has made a conscious step towards a more mature market for the large Japanese sedan.

This was evidenced in its decision to have a CVT gearbox although the trademark boxer engine was retained. Other areas that hinted at this change was the significantly larger body dimensions which meant it was now possible to fit a family of five comfortably within its spacious interior. And it didn’t hurt that the boot capacity was improved. It made the sedan a lot more practical than the sportier but smaller fourth generation model.

And Subaru has continued with that new modus operandi on this latest sixth generation model. While its size remains largely faithful to the model it replaces, Subaru has improved the exterior design to create a more executive style. The edgy angular lines of the previous model have been smoothed over to create a graceful silhouette here.

Good response and support from Angie at One Shift when I wanted to sell off my old Camry which was due to be scrapped in early February. Would recommend this platform for those wanting to buy or sell their cars.
