What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For The Legacy has great engines, is enjoyable drive, and has a spacious cabin that's built to last

Against Running costs and repairs are among the most expensive in class

Verdict The cabin is dull and the car is not cheap to run, but it's very underrated

Go for… Manual versions

Avoid… Autos
