Subaru Legacy Saloon rivals

The Legacy has often been overlooked by saloon buyers - but there's no reason for it anymore. This model has a classy look to it. It's good to drive with powerful, punchy engines and still has the traditional Subaru traits - excellent build quality and four-wheel drive handling giving security when the going is slippery plus extra grip for deploying its performance.

The model was facelifted in for 2007 with a sharper look and upgraded interiors. The petrols are on the thirsty side but the addition of a long-awaited diesel engine in August 2008 means more acceptable running costs.
