Ever since its debut, the completely redesigned 2015 Subaru Legacy has been knocking it out of the park. It swept the safety category, earning the IIHS’ Top Safety Pick+ award as well as a five-star safety rating from the NHSTA, with perfect scores in every area from both organizations. It’s led Subaru to its best sales months of all time, and is looking to pull it toward its best sales year ever. To top it all off, it’s earned unparalleled rave reviews from critics and consumers alike. What could possibly make this a better year for the Legacy? Being the very best, like no one ever was.

The Car Connection has named the 2015 Subaru Legacy its Best Car to Buy for the 2015 model year. The competition was stiff, as the 11 finalists included luxury models like the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and GLA-Class as well as perennial favorites such as the Ford F-150 and Mustang. Still, the Legacy — which earned an 8.8 of 10 overall score from TCC’s expert reviewers — trumped them all due to its “game-changing” nature and great value.

“The 2015 Subaru Legacy gets the award this year, and it’s the value factor, including standard all-wheel drive, that really nudges it ahead of every other contender,” said Bengt Halvorson, TCC’s deputy editor. “The Legacy’s safety credentials, with EyeSight, rival what’s offered in luxury cars with several times the sticker price.”

“The value for the money here is indisputable. Just as Subaru did with the Forester that won this award last year, the automaker has taken what used to be a niche sedan and updated it for mainstream appeal. You may not have thought to put it on your list next to nameplates like Altima, Accord, or Fusion—but now, you should,” he added in a Washington Post editorial.

It’s hard to imagine how things could get any better for the Legacy (and for Subaru), but if you haven’t yet tried out this amazing vehicle, things could certainly get better for you!
