The one thing that the legacy has is that it feels like an unbeatable tank in the rain and feels invincible, but it is so unbearably slow, seriously. I still love it though, but if you want speed and handling, buy Mazda or the new accord.
Even the non-turbo Mazda6 is quick. It's not fast, but it's like Honda with v-tech, but more subtle in application. Skyactiv done well will seriously make you think your NA mazda has to either be a 6 cylinder or have some kind of small turbo boosting the 4cyl power.

It felt a lot like my BRZ's engine did, but just in a heavier sedan body, and my BRZ was tuned probably to around 180 whp (30hp increase over stock, with most of the gains in the area under the curve rather than peak hp) as a hip shoot guesstimate.
