2012 Subaru Legacy Review

The 2012 Subaru Legacy – Intelligence you can feel. Thoughtfully equipped and designed the Subaru grips roads…and loosens neckties. With symmetrical All Wheel Drive and a 256 horsepower 3.6 liter engine you may forget you’re driving a sedan. Offering Traction Control and 4-wheel independent suspension you and the pavement are always fully engaged. Fine-tuned to fit anyone that steps inside with a 10-way adjustable power driver’s seat and leather trimmed upholstery – sit back and relax. Rock and roll to the 440-watt 9-speaker Harman Kardon Premium Audio System with mp3 playback capability. Safety is all around you with the ring-shaped steel reinforcement frame – diverting impact energy away. The Legacy also provides multiple airbags and a safety brake pedal system adding even more security to your open road. The 2012 Subaru Legacy – making hard corners look easy.
