Best Winter Cars - 07 - 2013 Subaru Legacy
Subaru's second entry on this list is the 2013 Subaru Legacy, a larger sedan than the Impreza that comes with more traditional styling, a spacious interior, and a smooth, comfortable ride. The Subaru Legacy features all-wheel drive as standard regardless of whether it is found in four or six-cylinder form. The entry-level engine offers up 173 horses from 2.5-liters, while the more robust 3.6-liter six-cylinder puts down 256 ponies and 247 lb-ft of twist. A surprising number of trim levels are available with the Legacy, but only two transmission can be ordered with the car: a six-speed manual (four-cylinder) and a continuously-variable automatic (either motor). The CVT helps the four-cylinder provide fuel mileage of 24-mpg in stop and go driving and 32-mpg on the highway.
