Editors’ Page: 2014 Subaru Legacy

Among the dozen mainstream midsize sedans on the market, the Subaru Legacy stands in contrast to them all with one significant standard feature: all-wheel drive (AWD). While this traction-enhancing setup should come as no surprise since it’s a Subaru — all of the automaker’s vehicles except the sporty new BRZ are born with it — all-wheel drive is a major distinguisher in this segment of front-drive cars. In fact, only one other contender even offers the feature, and an all-wheel drive Ford Fusion has a starting sticker price of more than $33,000. That makes the Legacy’s base price of just over $21,000 all the more enticing.
