Power is transferred to the road via a six-speed manual gearbox through all four wheels. Subaru’s ‘Lineartronic’ CVT transmission is also available.

According to the company, the AWD Legacy with the manual ‘box will hit 60mph in 9.8sec and onto a top speed of 120mph whilst returning 32.8mpg and emitting 199g/km CO2. With the CVT option, these figures change to 11.3sec to 60mph, 34.9mpg and 187g/km of CO2.

Inside, the entry-level model gets a full colour sat-nav with touch-screen fitted as standard, automatic headlights and windscreen wipers, dual zone climate control, alloys and an electric driver’s seat.
