Overview Information

The Legacy is an attractive midsize sedan with standard AWD. A 2010 redesign addresses one of the Legacy's historical shortcomings by adding some four inches of additional rear seat room. The standard 170-bhp flat-4 "boxer" (Legacy 2.5i) is coupled to either a 6-speed manual or CVT transmission. Legacy 2.5i models equipped with the CVT turn in a respectable EPA rating 23 city/ 31 hwy. Enthusiasts will prefer the sporty 2.5GT with its 265-bhp turbo, and 6-speed manual. The model range also includes a six-cylinder model.

What Changed:

The new Legacy sedan grows in wheelbase and width increasing rear seat leg room by some 4 inches. The Legacy continues to offer a choice of 4- or 6-cylinder boxer engines. The displacement of the 6-cylinder engine has increased to 3.6L. Legacy 2.5i models equip a CVT transmission in place of the traditional automatic. The CVT equipped models turn in better fuel economy.
