Finding a midsize sedan that delivers a superior Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system, athletic handling, a luxurious interior, advanced entertainment technology, outstanding safety performance and industry-leading fuel efficiency is usually a tall order, but Subaru just calls it the Legacy. See one today here at Autoteam Delaware in Wilmington, Delaware.
The five-passenger 2013 Subaru Legacy (MSRP starting at $20,295) comes in 2.5i, 2.5i Premium, 2.5i Sport, 2.5i Limited, 3.6R and 3.6R Limited models. Buyers can have all the advantages of a Subaru listed above, including an exceptional reputation for reliability, at an incredibly reasonable price point, making the Legacy 2.5i Limited (MSRP $25,895) one of the greatest values in the segment.
New on the Legacy 2.5i Limited for 2013 is a redesigned 2.5-liter SUBARU BOXER® flat four-cylinder engine featuring an outstanding balance of power and fuel efficiency. The 2.5-liter mill produces 173 hp and 174 lb/ft of torque while returning a remarkable 32 mpg highway, making it the most fuel efficient all-wheel drive midsize sedan in America, with performance matching many competitive front-wheel-drive only sedans.
Part of what makes the Legacy 2.5i Limited so fuel efficient is the second-generation Lineartronic® Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). Unlike traditional automatic transmissions, the CVT delivers an infinite range of variability with no noticeable steps or shifts. In addition to maximizing power curve delivery and fuel efficiency, the CVT also delivers a seamless and shiftless driving experience. The Lineartronic CVT also features a six-speed manual mode with paddle shifters on the steering wheel, for a more engaging driving experience.
The Legacy 2.5i Limited is equipped with the legendary Subaru Symmetrical AWD system. The Active Torque Split AWD system uses a continuously variable transfer clutch, and it electronically monitors which wheels have the most traction and seamlessly delivers power to those wheels. The result is all-weather traction and control competitors can’t match.
In addition to superior traction and control, the 2013 Legacy 2.5i Limited also features enhancements to the suspension, steering and body to help improve handling while cutting down on unwanted body roll and road noise. The improvements make the Legacy 2.5i Limited even more sporty and refined, enabling it to devour winding mountain roads while providing a hushed freeway ride.
In addition to a quieter cabin, the Legacy 2.5i Limited out-sizes many of its competitors with a spacious 103 cubic feet of interior volume. Rear-seat passengers are welcomed with plenty of legroom (37.8 inches), and the trunk easily accommodates up to 14.7 cubic feet of space for cargo. The AWD systems found in competing sedans often take up additional room that would have been used for rear-seat and truck space. Subaru engineers figured out a way to optimize passenger and cargo space, giving the Legacy 2.5i Limited interior dimensions on par with many FWD competitors.
The Legacy 2.5i Limited is loaded to the brim with luxury and advanced technology features, including perforated leather upholstery, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, a power moonroof, electro-luminescent gauges, a rear-seat A/C outlet and an available touch-screen and voice-controlled navigation system with seven-inch LCD display, rear-vision camera and a nine-speaker, 440-watt harman/kardon premium audio system with subwoofer.
Passenger safety is an utmost priority in all Subaru vehicles. As proof, every Subaru is designed from the ground up featuring a Ring-Shaped Reinforcement Frame body structure that delivers exceptional body rigidity for precise handling and also does an exceptional job of protecting occupants in collisions. This focus on safety has garnered the Legacy 2.5i Limited the industry’s top safety performance awards, including the prestigious and more stringent “2013 Top Safety Pick+” award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
New on the 2013 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Limited is the Subaru EyeSight® driver-assist system, which brings together Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-Collision Braking and Lane Departure Warning into one advanced safety system. EyeSight® uses stereo camera images to monitor driving safety. By seeing obstacles, hazards and other vehicles, the Subaru EyeSight system in the Legacy 2.5i Limited is able to limit or prevent potential collisions by stopping the vehicle before an accident can even occur.
The Subaru Legacy 2.5i also features an electronic Hill Holder System, to prevent roll back from a stop on inclines; a new Brake Override system, to prevent power delivery when both brake and gas pedals are pressed simultaneously; Vehicle Dynamics Control, Antilock Braking, Electronic Brake-force Distribution and Brake Assist.
