Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Ford Fiesta can deliver thrills, but it shows its age in too many ways for us to recommend.

Pros
Sharp handling
Thrilling Fiesta ST
Good optional infotainment
Decent fuel economy

Cons
Balky automatic transmission
Cramped back seat
Poor crash-test scores
Light on safety tech
To be discontinued

Ford has said it will stop producing sedans and most of its hatchbacks over the next few years, given the buying public's proclivity for crossovers. That's unfortunate because the 2019 Ford Fiesta is one of the best subcompact cars on the market.

Pros
Sporty handling in turns
Well-appointed interior with advanced technology options
ST model's zesty performance

Cons
Some rivals offer better ride quality and seat comfort
Limited cargo and rear-seat space

The 2018 Subaru Legacy ranked #18 in Midsize Cars. Currently the Subaru Legacy has a score of 7.8 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 33 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Standard all-wheel drive
Spacious seats
Great crash test ratings

Cons
Weak base engine
Mediocre handling and ride quality
Low predicted reliability rating

The 2018 Subaru Legacy may be the best mid-size sedan that buyers largely miss. It skips performance for a good safety record and relative value—not bad things.

Pros
Sparkling safety scorecard
Better interior materials
All-wheel-drive confidence
Comfortable interior
Relatively good value

Cons
Average performance
Thirsty optional engine
Plain exterior
Extra-cost advanced safety

By:

Revised for 2018, the Subaru Legacy has freshened front and rear styling, higher-quality interior materials, a larger 6.5-inch standard display with smartphone integration, and a more powerful air-conditioning system. Subaru says it's also retuned the Legacy for smoother acceleration, a more comfortable ride quality, sportier steering feel, and reduced wind and road noise at highway speeds.

PROS
Standard all-wheel drive for extra wet-weather traction
Excellent outward visibility
Easy-to-use infotainment systems

CONS
Engines down on power compared to competitors
