Sliding off the road into a ditch can really ruin your day. If that s a potential scenario for you during the winter you should add the 2016 Subaru Legacy and its standard all-wheel-drive system to your test-drive list. Plus the Legacy offers enough additional benefits to make it a solid pick during those months when the sun is shining. Check out its other virtues below.If you re itching to see a lot of Subarus (and who isn t?) go to where it rains and snows. All-wheel drive standard in all Subaru models save the BRZ sport coupe has made Subarus popular in places like New England and the Pacific Northwest.Subaru has tried to broaden the Legacy s appeal in recent years by making it feel more like a mainstream car. A 2015 redesign saw improved passenger and cargo space along with a significant upgrade to cabin materials and electronics controls. Subaru also boosted the Legacy s fuel economy which had previously been a notable drawback for the car.But there are many quirks that remain for the 2016 Subaru Legacy. Chief among them is its standard all-wheel drive. True some competing midsize sedans offer it but usually only on upper trim levels or with more powerful engine options. It s not only standard on the Legacy but it doesn t come at the expense of a higher price or mpg figure. Another quirk is the horizontally opposed boxer engines (a 2.5-liter four-cylinder and a more powerful 3.6-liter six-cylinder) which have their benefits and detriments but ultimately are most notable for how few companies employ them. Both engines come exclusively with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) with steering-wheel-mounted paddle switches that attempt to mimic a manually shifted six-speed.We like the Subaru Legacy and we re well aware of how well owners like it: Subaru s brand loyalty is among the best in the business. We think the overlooked Legacy is indeed worth a look especially if you do live in a place where it rains and snows in significant amounts.We RecommendThere s a good chance you re considering the all-wheel-drive Legacy because you live somewhere chilly during the winter. If so you re going to want the seats mirrors and windshield wipers heated along with dual-zone climate control. To get that you need at least the 2.5i Premium trim that also adds most of the Legacy s available infotainment features. -Edmund s Expert Review All Scheduled Maintenance. Ice cold A/C.
