If your looking for an all around performer sedan, the Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT is the car for you. For the price you really can't buy a better vehicle. Its a great mix of luxury features and strong driving performance. I took a long time deciding on what car to buy to meet my desire for performance and need for practicality, not two things that often go together well. When I found the Legacy GT and drove it, I knew it was love at first drive, and the best car for me.
The exterior styling isn't as flashy as the WRX or STI but the hood scoop and rear spoiler help it stand out against other bland sedans.
The inside of the car is well thought out. The leather wrapped streeing wheel feels good in your hands and has radio and cruise controls on it. Dashboard controls are easy to use and well laid out. The leather seats are frim, and will hold you in place while your taking corners hard. Also has grab handles I affectionately dubbed "Oh Goodness! Handles" so that your passengers can hang on too. Rear seat room is a bit smaller then some other sedans. Good trunk space and has a center pass thru and the seats hold down to extend the trunk room.
The true joy of this car comes from driving it. The AWD handeling is a work of art, keeping all four tires glued to the road. It takes a bit of effort to break the tires loose. When pushed to the limit the rear end tends to sway out, but its easy to correct. My GT is a 5 speed manual, and I feel this is the best way to get the most out of the Legacy's power. The pedals are positioned for easy heel toe maneuvers. Setting the SI-Drive to Sport Sharp brings the car to its full potential. Mash down the gas, wrap out the gears, hit boost, and feel the rush as the car rockets off. Its an awsome feeling and the main reason why I bought the car. The AWD gives me confidence while driving hard, or while driving in hard conditions. Rain or snow, the AWD keeps you in control and gets you where you want to be safely.
All in all, the Leagcy GT does it all. The room and practicality of a sedan and the performance and handling of a sports car all put together in one nice package. Go drive one and my bet is you will see why loves makes a Subaru a Subaru.
