The third trim model in the 2.5i series, the Subaru Legacy 2.5i Limited Sedan for 2012 makes its mark as a contender in the mid-size sedan market. While Subaru completely redesigned the Legacy just last year, for our 2012 review they left everything mostly untouched for the most part. One important change you will notice compared to last years model is that the body has grown in size, and as a result, has led to many positive changes to the interior. The 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine is still the same, but the Legacy Limited comes standard with the popular CVT automatic transmission. This is beneficial because the 6-speed manual included in the base version of the Legacy has poor gas mileage in comparison reviews. Many Subaru loyalists will notice that as the Subaru Legacy 2.5i Limited Sedan continues to grow, it has begun to focus more on the mass market appeal.
Continuing on about the mass market appeal, the wider stance of the body is proof that Subaru has decided to conform a little, and compete with rival car makers in the same mid-size sedan market. Gone are the familiar frame-less doors of the past, but with that change comes much good according to our review. The body has been improved tremendously with a solid, stronger structure overall. This impacts the safety standards, as well as stability on the roads. Of course, it's not like the Subaru brand needed help in those category reviews. Well renowned for their high safety standard reviews, the Subaru Legacy 2.5i Limited Sedan doesn't disappoint in this regard. With the all-wheel drive capabilities, and the airbags on all sides, the 2012 Subaru Legacy is decidedly a safety standard favorite. This should have a positive impact on those looking to make the Subaru Legacy 2.5i Limited Sedan their family vehicle.
Once you step inside the Legacy, you'll notice a difference right away upon review. Much more roomier then last years version, you can tell the cabin space has increased substantially. Fitting a family inside the car will not be a hassle, nor will anyone feel cramped. A great choice to take on long car rides as a result, you can expect the utmost in comfort when riding around in the Subaru Legacy 2.5i Limited Sedan. In terms of appearance review, the 2012 Legacy differs widely from the cabin designs of other current Subaru vehicles. A new sophisticated appeal has been added, with a silver metallic paint found throughout. Granted, some may be put off by the overabundance of silver, but we think it looks good. The plastic is high quality and durable, but the overall feel of the interior still lacks compared to competing models. The audio system is placed high, but the large, round dash is very appealing and easy on the eyes based of new customer reviews.
The Subaru Legacy 2.5i Limited Sedan is a solid choice among the many mid-size sedan models available to choose from. With upgraded feature reviews, and the CVT automatic transmission for the Limited model, this Subaru Legacy offers both comfort and reliability. The all-wheel drive handles well in any weather situation, and the safety standard reviews are some of the highest around. A smooth ride with plenty of room should help the Subaru Legacy 2.5i Limited Sedan appeal to a wider market range in 2012.
