Subaru's new Legacy, road tested below and praised for its great value for money, has been awarded an impressive group 11E rating, making it an even more competitive prospect to run.

The Association of British Insurers has awarded the base 2.0-litre powered variants an 11E rating compared to 14D for the old model. This means a saving of around 12% on annual premiums for the average driver, and makes Subaru's much-improved saloon and load-lugger an even more attractive choice compared to its more expensive premium rivals.

Further up the range, choosing Subaru's 2.5-litre powerplant now means a 13E, rather than a 15D group rating, which brings an average quote down from around £387 to £339. The 3.0R models are rated at 15E, as compared to 16D, bringing typical annual insurance cost down from around £409 to £387.
