The Subaru Legacy is a stylish midsize sedan that's a smart choice for running errands, taking the kids to school, and your daily commute. How can you be sure it's the right car for you? To help drivers in Mobile, Daphne, and Fairhope, Alabama, decide, Subaru of Mobile explores everything it has to offer in our collection of Subaru Legacy reviews.

Subaru Legacy Specs

The Subaru Legacy offers both a smooth ride and the kind of capability you'd normally find in an SUV. It has standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive as well as Vehicle Dynamics Control and a Traction Control System. This setup enables the Legacy to grip the road in any driving or road condition.

Under the hood, you'll have a few engines to choose from. The base engine is a 2.5L 4-cylinder SUBARU BOXER® engine that produces up to 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque. This works with a Lineartronic® Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). Together, they help this versatile sedan get up to an EPA-estimated 27 city/35 highway MPG.*

You do have another engine option available to you, though. The 2.4L turbocharged DOHC engine also works in tandem with a Lineartronic® CVT. However, it does come ready to provide more power, offering 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque. All the while, this engine is also able to perform efficiently, earning an EPA-estimated 24 city/32 highway MPG.*

Subaru Legacy Interior

The Legacy features a roomy and refined interior. There's seating for up to five people with 105.5 cubic feet of passenger space. Up front, the driver and passenger will enjoy 42.8 inches of legroom, while passengers in the back can relax with 39.5 inches of legroom. There's even space for three people to sit comfortably with 57.4 inches of rear shoulder room.

Cloth seats come standard, but leather-trimmed upholstery is also available. You can also add comfortable amenities, such as available power-adjustable front seats, available heated seats, an available leather-wrapped steering wheel, and an available power moonroof.

The interior of the Legacy wasn't only built for comfort, though. Behind the second row of seats, you will find a spacious cargo area, offering 15.1 cubic feet of cargo volume to work with. If you need to create even more cargo room, you could also utilize the 60/40-split flat-folding rear seat backs to fold down the second row. 

Subaru Legacy Safety

In addition to its standard all-wheel drive, the Subaru Legacy keeps you and your passengers safe with an advanced airbag system. To prevent whiplash, it also comes with height- and tilt-adjustable head restraints as well as a Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) system.

There are also lots of driver-assist features that can help prevent accidents. For example, the Rear-Vision Camera makes it easy to avoid fender benders by showing what's behind your car while you're backing up. EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology also comes standard on the Legacy. It looks out for you with features that include pre-collision braking, adaptive cruise control, lane departure and sway warning, and lane keep assist functions.

The Subaru sedan also offers even more driver-assistive technology features. For instance, the Legacy comes standard with High Beam Assist. This system will autonomously turn your high beams on and off based on oncoming traffic. Additionally, you could explore adding some other available features such as an available DriverFocus™ Distraction Mitigation System, available Reverse Automatic Braking, and available Blind-Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert.

Subaru Legacy Infotainment System

A Bluetooth®-compatible STARLINK® infotainment system comes standard in the Subaru Legacy. It offers a variety of touchscreen sizes and provides plenty of music to choose from with SiriusXM® capability. You'll also be able to access your smartphone with features like Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. A navigation system is also available. It can help you find the fastest route, deliver detailed maps, and provide you with turn-by-turn directions.

Pairing well with this system is an available Harman Kardon premium audio system. This sound system provides a 576-watt-equivalent GreenEdge® amplifier and 12 speakers. So, whether you're connecting to take a call or listen to your favorite playlist, you'll have excellent sound quality.
