Have you been looking forward to getting a new car, but just haven’t been “wowed” by anything lately? Yeah? Well all of us here at Hassett think the wait is over. Introducing the all-new 2015 Subaru Legacy!

2015 Subaru Legacy

The 2015 Subaru Legacy was just recently unveiled at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show.

Featuring a fresh new look (obviously), more interior space, a new-and-improved version of the Subaru Eyesight System, and a more fuel efficient engine, we think you’re going to be seeing a lot of these new Legacy’s driving around pretty soon. According to Subaru, “The completely redesigned, all-new Subaru Legacy has all the dependability you’ve come to expect from a Subaru. In fact, 95% of Subaru vehicles sold in the last 10 years are still on the road today.” Not too shabby! Subaru goes on to say, “With the confidence of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, great gas mileage, and a 175-hp 2.5-liter Subaru BOXER engine, it will move you in more ways than one. A 256-hp 3.6-liter 6-cylinder Subaru BOXER engine with up to 28 mpg is also available.”

But enough with all the numbers and what not. If you’re anything like us, you probably learn best by watching a short video or two. And we just happen to have exactly that! Check out the videos below for more information on the new 2015 Legacy.

So there you have it! The new 2015 Subaru Legacy. We cannot WAIT for it to be delivered to Hassett later this year. Keep checking our blog for updates on its delivery. And remember, you can always stop by Hassett if you have any questions about this or any other Subaru model.

 

 

 

Subaru Outback Recognized by Consumer Reports

It seems like these days car makers are all about getting high-tech safety equipment in their cars to help keep the driver and passengers as safe as possible. And there’s nothing wrong with that! In fact, new Subaru vehicles are jam packed with awesome safety equipment. But we think that sometimes car makers need to just go back to the basics and think about the simple changes they can make to cars to make them much safer.

Lack of visibility, for example, is a big issue that has caused countless accidents. And this is an easy fix! The smaller the blind spot is, the better visibility will be. That’s probably why Consumer Reports went ahead and made a list of cars with the best visibility.

According to Consumer Reports, “Being able to see out and around a vehicle from the driver’s seat can directly impact your safety and those around you. Vehicles with big blind spots make it harder for driver’s to see other vehicles approaching, and even children or pets behind the vehicle. When a driver can’t see, it can be a recipe for disaster. Backup cameras and sensors can be helpful aids for those vehicles with poor visibility.”

The Subaru Outback was named to the list of cars with the best visibility. And that’s on top of already being named an IIHS Top Safety Pick. Not too shabby. Needless to say, if you’re looking for a great, safe, new car – Check out the Subaru Outback at Hassett Automotive.

Ford Takes Passenger Comfort to the Next Level

These days, car manufactures are always trying to make drivers more comfortable by pampering them with luxurious features such as leather wrapped steering wheels, heated seats, ambient lighting, or dual-zone climate control – and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that! In fact, most new Ford vehicles have those features. But Ford has taken driver and passenger comfort to the next level in their new vehicles by only using safe materials, and adding an air filter that blocks harmful airborne particles from entering the car.

In a press release written by Ford not too long ago, they said, “Ford has begun requiring that more than 100 materials and components meet stringent standards to minimize potential allergy issues on the new Fusion and other Ford vehicles.” The materials that Ford is staying away from are things like latex, chrome, nickel, and any other material that people could be allergic too.

As for the cabin air filter, you’ll be glad Ford decided to start putting these in their new cars the next time you get behind a semi truck that is spewing black smoke. According to Ford, “Cabin air filters improve driving comfort by reducing particle concentration, improve cleanliness and protect climate control components from particle deposits. These filters also capture soot, smog and tobacco smoke.

If you’re interested in test driving a new Ford and experiencing these new features first hand, give us a call or stop by Hassett Automotive today.
