Subaru decided to only offer its fifth generation Legacy medium range model in this country in its estate 'Tourer' bodystyle. This design was larger than its predecessor to try and elevate itself into content with executive class estates as well as Mondeo-sized models. Plus it offered the usual Subaru virtues - distinctive Boxer engines, all-wheel-drive and metronomic reliability. Does all that add up to a strong used car buy? Let's find out.
By going large, this fifth generation Legacy Tourer was looking to distance itself a little from the badge-conscious compact executive estates that had always overshadowed it in the past. It certainly seems a more realistic proposition targeted at Volvo and Skoda than it did when pitched towards smaller BMW and Audi estates. And you get all the usual Subaru virtues in terms of reliability and build quality. The result, we think, is a strong used car buy if you're in the market for a family-sized estate with a little extra winter weather or towing capability.
It'll help too, that some of Subaru's trademark individuality remains here. The characterful engines. The permanent four-wheel drive. And of course, the strong value proposition. Some things never change.
