While many may expect the Subaru Legacy 2.5GT Limited Sedan to be a prime candidate for fun and speed within the Legacy series, our review shows that many Subaru enthusiasts will be disappointed with the outcome. Although the engine has been turbo-charged, and it is indeed a little quicker, the overall difference isn't enough to satisfy those looking for the ultimate GT package based upon our reviews.
Aside from the engine upgrade, and a few other features that come included, the 2012 Subaru Legacy 2.5GT Limited Sedan remains largely the same as the base model. In terms of our appearance review, many may not notice the difference between any of the trim models available in the Legacy model lineup form afar. One of the main changes from 2011, is that the overall body size has grown in every direction a few inches. This has produced a more comfortable interior, and better stability in terms of steering and road control. Many believe this change was made to appeal to a larger buyers market that Honda and Toyota currently reside over. For the most part, Subaru has succeeded in this regard. With more space for families, and positioning itself as a true mid-size sedan, the Subaru Legacy 2.5GT Limited Sedan can work as both a sporty or family geared vehicle.
The interior of the Subaru Legacy 2.5GT Limited Sedan has been changed from various other Subaru line-ups. The dash review has an upwards design pattern, and a silver metallic finish over the high quality plastic throughout. Many may applaud this new design change, although the luxury car buyer may not agree. The silver can sometimes become too much for some based on user reviews. The dashboard however has gotten it right this time. Large and round, the gauges fit perfectly with the style, and look good all the same. Where the Subaru Legacy 2.5GT Limited Sedan really shines is with the added room the new body style affords. Great for long trips, the seats feel comfortable with plenty of head and leg room. The leather upholstery for the GT version of the legacy is well-made, and has that sport appeal. The larger cabin area makes the Subaru Legacy 2.5GT Limited Sedan a suitable vehicle for any family in search of a reliable, safe vehicle.
According to safety reviews, the Subaru Legacy 2.5GT Limited Sedan ranks highly as usual. With all of the safety features that come included with every Subaru, such as the all-wheel drive and traction control, it's no wonder they receive such high marks each year. 2012 is no different, and why should it be? Popular among buyers in the northern half of the US, it's no wonder since the Subaru Legacy 2.5GT Limited Sedan performs great in any weather condition. Through snow, Subarus in general have always been known to excel based on past model reviews.
If you've been searching for a sporty Subaru to own, the Subaru Legacy 2.5GT Limited Sedan may not be the wisest choice.
