Subaru’s mid-size sedan has been going strong for three decades, entering its 7th-generation for 2020 and arriving at dealerships this fall across North America.
Sedans today may be lacking the hype of yesteryear, but the Legacy has grown into a stylish family hauler sporting standard full-time Symmetrical all-wheel drive while maintaining a lower starting MSRP than many of its front-wheel drive competitors.
For 2020, the Japanese automaker has really ramped up their 4-door with enhanced safety, performance and refinement, including an available new turbocharged 2.4L making 260-hp and 277 lb.-ft. of torque.
Despite its 30-year run thus far, the Legacy needs all the help it can get in the dwindling segment beating off crossovers and small SUVs but Subaru definitely appears to have come through with their latest version of the family car.
