The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Subaru Legacy appeals to rugged, sporty, and practical types, but not those who expect top refinement. The 2008 Volvo S60 is a comfortable, safe all-weather sedan, but if you want top sport-sedan performance, you should look elsewhere.
