Subaru Legacy Summary

The Subaru Legacy is the longest-running nameplate in the Japanese automaker’s lineup. As the largest Subaru sedan, it excels at family duties, offering plenty of room front and back. Not only does it come with the brand’s famous all-wheel drive system, but it also includes a suite of advanced driver assist tech. Its low-key styling, however, probably isn’t for everyone.

The current model features four- and six-cylinder engines paired to a continuously variable transmission (CVT). This combo majors on fuel efficiency. Earlier generations offer up a sporty Subaru drive with turbocharged engines and manual transmissions.
