The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Subaru Legacy retains its unique position as an affordable, fun-to-drive mid-size sedan with standard all-wheel drive--and adds some standout safety technology. The 2013 Mazda6 is a little more enjoyable to drive than other mid-size sedans, and its roomy, comfortable interior is another advantage, but it's behind the curve in occupant safety and tech features.
