The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. The 2009 Mazda6 could easily steal sales from the traditional class leaders if non-gearheads discover it.
