New Car Quick Quote


When the Legacy first arrived in the U.S market back in 1990, it offered plenty of space with the practicality, reliability and value that buyers expected from Subaru. That tradition continues today.

There are two boxer engines to choose from: a 170-horspower 2.5-liter four and a 256-horsepower 3.6-liter six. Subaru's ubiquitous all-wheel drive makes the Legacy a popular choice in regions that frequently experience inclement weather.

The fifth-generation Legacy rolled into showrooms in 2010, featuring a fully redesigned cabin and body, plus a new 3.6-liter six-cylinder engine with 256 horsepower and a revised turbocharged 2.5-liter with 265 horsepower. In 2013, Subaru axed the 2.5GT trim level, which also brought the end of the turbocharged 2.5-liter engine, leaving only a 173-horsepower 2.5-liter engine and a 256-horsepower 3.6-liter engine. The 2013 model also received a slightly revised front end to keep the Legacy looking fresh.
