The storms that slammed into Connecticut during the early weeks of the winter of 2019-20 may have served as a reminder of the reasons many New Englanders choose Subaru crossovers, sedans and SUVs. Models like the Legacy, a midsize sedan that was redesigned for 2020, are equipped to deal with all kinds of weather, yet deliver the ride, handling and comfort of a modern, medium-priced passenger car.
The Legacy, a 4-door sedan built in Lafayette, Ind., has a base price of $22,745 when equipped with the 182-horsepower Boxer Four. Our test car, a Legacy Limited XT, had the 260-horsepower turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. Its sticker price was $35,095.
