Within the past year, I’ve spent a week with a 2014 Subaru Legacy Sport, a short-lived model with a slightly more aggressive appearance and nothing more than a set of bigger 18-inch wheels and tires to support the Sport moniker. I thoroughly enjoyed driving that car, though it really could have used a turbocharger, but I wasn’t crazy about its looks.
Understandably, then, once I laid eyes on the far more appealing 2015 Legacy, I couldn’t wait to grab a set of keys to the redesigned model and extoll its virtues. Now that I’ve had my chance, I’m perplexed. Rest assured, there are virtues to this car, and many of them, but something has also been lost in translation.
