3. 2015 Subaru Legacy
The second time a Subaru has graced this list. The 2015 Subaru Legacy is a larger sedan than the Impreza and has a more traditional Subaru look, a spacious interior, and a smooth, comfortable ride. The Subaru Legacy features all-wheel drive as standard, regardless of whether it is found in four or six-cylinder form. The 4 cylinder engine has around 175 horsepower from 2.5-liters, while the larger 3.6-liter six-cylinder outputs 256 horsepower and 247 lb-ft of torque. Two transmissions types are available with the car: a six-speed manual (four-cylinder) and a continuously-variable automatic (either motor). The CVT helps the four-cylinder provide fuel mileage of 26-mpg in stop and go driving, and 36-mpg on the highway. Once again the primary draw for the Legacy is the all-wheel drive system that makes winter weather a breeze.
