Subaru Legacy Gt-b. Best car I've ever had, would still have it if I didn't have a 40mile commute. Mine had done 210k miles when I sold it and went on another 80 or so k with the next owner. 280bhp 4 wheel drive, could fit a sofa in the boot, smiling all the way. Other than the pneumatic solenoid box was relatively easy to work on and reliable if its got good history.
What MPG were you getting on average?
I'm getting 22-24 on short journeys and 35+ on long journeys from the 2.5GX but I want to change to a turbo but unsure if MPG will be much worse.
BTW John you won't be disappointed with the Legacy, you say you don't need AWD, but the Legacy essentially drives like a very grippy FWD. very sure footed all the time.
MPG in the GT-b depends on how heavy your right foot is. On a 40mile run if I was very very gentle with the throttle and didn't go over about 60mph could expect to average nearly 30mpg. Driven as if it were stolen you could get it down to around mid to low teens mpg. It was after all a very fast estate car, on a private road or track, 150mph+ and 0-60 in not much over 5 seconds. Mine was a late model import and one thing to bear in mind with all of the gt-b s is they need to run on the super plus/higher octane fuel. Don't know if this was just an urban legend but other owners I knew also went by this rule. Tbh the H6 variants being recommended sound more like what the OP is after.
