Why Buy the 2018 Subaru Legacy

Most midsize sedans use the awfully familiar front-engine front-wheel-drive layout. Not so for the Subaru Legacy. As of the 2018 model year, it remains the only midsize sedan that has a standard all-wheel drive, thus giving it more ability to take on slippery surfaces than others in its class. Part of the nameplate's sixth generation of production, the 2018 model is split into base-level, Premium, Sport, and Limited trims.

2018 Subaru Legacy near Ferndale MI - OVERVIEW

Exterior - Reasons Why Buy the Legacy

Standard on the 2018 Subaru Legacy are projector-beam headlights and folding exterior mirrors. The headlights are notable for being able to automatically turn on or off in response to the amount of light outside. Getting the Sport introduces fog lights for more penetrating illumination, as well as a power tilting-and-sliding glass moonroof to let in the breeze during the hotter months. The Limited is the only trim with turn-signal indicators on the side mirrors, a dual stainless-steel exhaust system (instead of a single one), and steering responsive technology for the headlights to turn in the direction of the steering for more accurate illumination. The base-level model uses 15-inch steel wheels. Seventeen-inch alloy wheels go on the Premium, and 18-inch ones go on the Sport and Limited. As the designated racing-style trim, the Sport stands out with its chrome-trimmed rocker spoiler.

Designed as a five-seater with two rows, the 2018 Subaru Legacy provides a maximum passenger space of 104.6 cubic feet. (It is reduced to 100.9 cubic feet with the addition of a moonroof). Cargo space is measured at 15 cubic feet, with the option of folding down the rear bench-style seat for expanding it into the cabin. Front-seat heating capability and driver-side 10-way power adjustability and power lumbar support are standard on the Premium trim and higher. Exclusive to the Limited are leather upholstery, a driver-side 2-position memory system, and a 4-way power-adjustable front passenger seat. Standard comfort and convenience features on the vehicle include cruise control, Bluetooth® connectivity for hands-free phone calls and audio streaming, Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ for executing infotainment functions with your smartphone, four-speaker audio, an AM/FM radio tuner, a USB port and audio jack for connecting mobile devices, and STARLINK™ infotainment integration with a 6.5-inch LCD touchscreen.

Upgrading to the Premium introduces additions or enhancements like dual-zone automatic temperature control, four charging-only USB ports, an 8-inch LCD touchscreen (in place of the 6.5-inch), HD Radio™, a single-disc CD player, an additional USB port for playing digital media with your mobile device, a trial four-month SiriusXM® satellite radio subscription, and an LCD multi-information color screen. The Sport and Limited also have keyless access, push-button engine ignition, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and the HomeLink® universal transceiver for remote-controlling garage doors. The Premium and Sport stand out from the base-level trim with their six-speaker audio systems (instead of four-speaker). The Limited, however, is unique with its 12-speaker 576-watt Harman Kardon audio system.

Powering the new sedan is a 2.5-liter flat four-cylinder engine that generates 175 horsepower and 174 lb-ft of torque. However, if you choose the Limited, you get the 3.6-liter flat-six instead with 256 horsepower and 247 lb-ft of torque. Each engine is mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT), which eschews the traditional gear shifting mechanism for changing within a range of gear ratios. However, the CVT comes with paddle shifters to simulate the feel of a manual transmission. The standard all-wheel drive on the vehicle comes with active torque vectoring for applying stopping ability to the inside front wheel so that handling and turning are greatly improved. The sedan's MacPherson strut front and double wishbone rear suspension keeps you shielded from fully absorbing road turbulence, and the electric power-assisted steering enables a turning circle of 36.8 cubic feet.


Safety - Why Buy with Safety Features

Cushioning and restraint on the vehicle in the event of a collision is provided by a pair of front impact airbags, dual side impact airbags mounted on the front seats, and a pair of roof-mounted side curtain airbags that flank both rows of seats. Also on board are electronic vehicle stability control for maintaining your intended driving path, traction control for mitigating skidding, disc brakes on all wheels for keeping stopping distances short, LED daytime running lights for increased conspicuity, a rearview camera for monitoring driving when in reverse, brake assist for additional stopping ability when necessary, and brake override for stopping unwarranted acceleration. There's also a theft-deterrent system, which includes vehicle immobilization. Above the base-level trim is the STARLINK™ Safety and Security bundle of services that includes automatic collision notification, SOS emergency assistance, and stolen vehicle recovery. Exclusive to the Limited are blind-spot detection, lane change assist, and rear cross-traffic alert.
