Automobile Magazine has at three sedans designed for responsible adults, the Honda Accord, Mazda 6 and Subaru Legacy in order to discern if its possible to spend $25,000 and still get a car that's satisfying to drive yet reliable and capable of carting your family around safely. The answer is yes, it's possible, and particularly with the Subaru. The Accord is refined and as reliable as any Honda, but just isn't particularly interesting to pilot. The Mazda 6 has a useful hatch and feels nimble in the corners, but the torque-less engine and unsettled suspension put it out of real contention. The Legacy comes in sedan and more flavors, sports a solid 168-hp engine and a wonderful interior, and perfectly combines sport and practicality. And if you want to spend extra coin for a really superb, quick vehicle, the $32,000 Legacy GT can walk all over everything else in its price range.
