What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For A tough, spacious, family estate with charismatic engines and good road manners

Against It's expensive to run

Verdict The Legacy is a practical workhorse, but you’ll need deep pockets to run it

Go for… 2.5-litre

Avoid… 3.0-litre

Subaru Legacy Estate
  • 1. Examine engines and gearboxes carefully, as these are the main areas to concentrate on
  • 2. Axles and suspension are known trouble spots - check them out carefully
  • 3. Ensure four-wheel drive system is in first-rate condition
  • 4. Load bay is bigger than a Volvo V70's
  • 5. Cabin is plain but hard-wearing
