The Legacy has always been a good choice for those after something a little different to the usual estates. Like the majority of Subarus, it comes with all-wheel drive as standard, giving it great traction, while the neat styling helps it stand out from the crowd.

The diesel can be identified by an air-scoop in the bonnet which petrol versions lack.
