As Nerad points out, standard all-wheel drive makes just about any Subaru a great rain ride.
The Legacy gets a leg up for being the standard sedan-style utilitarian-mobile that U.S. commuters love, which makes it a bit of rarity among the larger all-wheel-drive crossovers on this list. Combined with a stability control system that maintains traction by distributing steering and braking controls evenly and a brake assist feature that provides more stopping power in emergency situations, that all-wheel-drive gives the Legacy a better grip on the road than its midsized competition. In weather for which stopping and skidding are key concerns, the sturdy Legacy's nimble braking and suspension have you covered.
