Of course, Subaru hasn't forgotten about the basics; all 2015 Legacy models again include all-wheel drive, and the system has a new torque-vectoring system that should make it, we hope, better than ever. And fuel economy numbers have risen—to 26 mpg city, 36 highway, for the 2.5i (four-cylinder) versions.
With the addition of new rear radar hardware and an improved camera, Subaru's suite of active-safety features and its EyeSight driver assistance system have been improved and expanded. And perhaps what we'd appreciate most on a daily basis are the better infotainment systems. Subaru has at last moved into the world of modern infotainment, and we're glad to see the day.
The new Legacy, of course, foretells some of the features and changes—and the design direction—for the new 2015 Subaru Outback that's due at the New York Auto Show in April. Together, the Outback and Legacy add up to well over a third of Subaru's annual sales.
