Since its introduction in 1989, the Subrau Legacy has stood out from the rest of the midsize sedan pack for two major reasons. One, it has a standard all-wheel drivetrain, while most of its peers stick with front-wheel drive. And two, while most sedans use inline 4-cylinder and V6 engines, the Legacy goes with the proprietary horizontally-opposed (H) Subaru Boxer engine. This still holds true as it continues to trudge into its sixth production cycle with the 2017 model year. The Sport trim joins the Legacy's trio of variants, which are the base-level model, the Premium (which is immediately placed below the Sport), and the Limited.


Designed and classified as a midsize four-door sedan, the new Subrau Legacy accommodates up to five people. However, if you go with the base-level or Premium trim, the Legacy would supply 104.6 cubic feet of passenger volume. The Sport and Limited offer less, at 100.9 cubic feet-and that's because of the power tilt-and-slide moonroof that appears as a standard feature. The trunk provides 15 cubic feet of cargo room, which can be expanded by folding down the rear seatback. On the Premium and Sport, the standard 6-way manual adjustability on the driver's side is upgraded to 10-way power, and heating capability appears on both front seats. On the Limited, all seats get leather covering, cooling capability joins heating capability on the front seats, and the front passenger seat joins the driver's seat with 10-way power adjustability. Base-level standard features on the Legacy in terms of comfort and convenience include electronic cruise control, steering wheel-mounted controls, Bluetooth for hands-free phone operation and audio streaming, and a four-speaker stereo system that includes a single-disc CD player and a 6.2-inch high-resolution LCD touchscreen display. On the Premium, Subaru adds dual-zone automatic climate control, swaps the 6.2-inch screen with a 7-inch one, adds two speakers to create a six-speaker audio system, and provides a pair of SiriusXM subscriptions (for satellite radio and travel guidance). Upgrade to the Sport for remote keyless access, a universal transceiver for remote-controlling garage doors, auto dimming on the rearview mirror, and push-button engine start. On the Limited, the four- or six-speaker system is replaced by a 12-speaker 576-watt Harman Kardon system.


At the base level, the new Legacy gets projector-beam halogen headlights and folding side mirrors among its base-level exterior features. The Sport and Limited also feature turn-signal indicators on the side mirrors and a pair of fog lights for more penetrating light, in addition to the aforementioned moonroof. The Limited is the only one with high-intensity discharge headlights instead of halogen bulbs; they produce a brighter and whiter light. The base-level Subaru Legacy comes with 17-inch steel wheels. Go with the Premium to have 17-inch alloy ones, or the Sport or Limited for 18-inch alloys.


The new Subrau Legacy uses a four-wheel independent suspension that consists of a front MacPherson strut design and rear double-wishbone design, with a stabilizer bar on each side. On the sedan is an electric power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering system, which results in a turning circle of 36.8 feet and promotes energy saving with its independence source of power (rather than drawing it from the engine).


At the base level, the new Legacy gets a Subaru Boxer engine is a 2.5-liter H4 that produces 175 horsepower at 5,800 rpm and 174 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm. However, if you choose the Limited, a larger and more powerful Subaru Boxer engine is available. It's a 3.6-liter H6, which produces 256 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 247 lb-ft of torque at 4,400 rpm. Tied to the Subaru Boxer is the Lineartronic® CVT, which is Subaru's branded continuously variable transmission. Since it does not use gear shifting like the traditional transmission, the CVT conserves energy and helps improve fuel efficiency. However, the CVT does come with paddle shifters if you want to simulate manual gear shifting.


For providing crash safety, the Subaru Legacy provides dual front impact airbags that face the front occupants, a pair of front seat-mounted airbags for side impact, and a pair of side curtain for protecting the heads of all occupants. The Legacy has disc brakes on all wheels to maximize braking effectiveness, and they are accompanied by electronic brake-force distribution for proper allocation of braking power to the wheels, brake override to facilitate a safe stop, and brake assist for additional stopping power when needed. Also standard on the Legacy are a rearview camera, hill start assist, electronic stability control, traction control, and an anti-theft system. Beyond the base-level trim, Subaru adds a collection of safety and security services that includes emergency assistance, automatic collision notification, roadside assistance, and stolen vehicle recovery. The Limited stands alone with a robust blind spot detection that includes rear cross-traffic alert.
