The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Mazda6 could easily steal sales from the traditional class leaders if non-gearheads discover it. Subaru is finally taking its all-wheel-drive message into the mid-size sedan mainstream, and it’s done so almost flawlessly with the 2010 Legacy.
