Living up to its name, the Subaru Legacy has formed an impressive reputation over the multiple decades it’s been around. This year extends its excellence yet again, offering a comfortable, safe ride in this nimble mid-size car.
Performance that emphasizes efficiency and stability
The 2019 Legacy focuses on fuel conservation and traction. Four of the five trims come with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine coupled with a Lineartronic® Continuously Variable Transmission. This motor yields an average 25 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway.* Subaru does offer a bit more potency in the form of the 3.6R Limited and its 3.6-liter DOHC engine. This configuration outputs 256 horsepower and 247 lb-ft of torque.
It’s rare for a midsize car to offer all-wheel drive as an option, let alone a standard feature. Yet, the 2019 Legacy provides this as a standard amenity, regardless of trim level.
Interior space, comfort, and technology
A spacious cabin means a comfortable driving experience for guests, whether they sit in the front or back seat of the 2019 Legacy. The front yields 40 inches of headroom and 42.9 inches of legroom; the back yields 37 inches of headroom and 38.1 inches of legroom.
All versions of the Legacy come standard with 10-way power-adjustable settings for enhanced comfort behind the wheel. Choose the higher-level trims to enjoy available memory settings for the driver’s seat.
Optional heated rear seats come standard on the 2.5i Limited and 3.6R Limited versions. Elevate your playlists with the optional Harman Kardon® premium audio system. The optional easy-to-read 8-inch touch screen enables you to quickly access the infotainment you need so you can focus on the road ahead.
Superior safety features to boost confidence
The impressive defenses on the 2019 Legacy will ease your mind on each adventure. For starters, the automaker has incorporated EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology on every Legacy. This suite includes Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Keep Assist to simplify the driver’s role on long journeys. Sway Warning, Pre-Collision Braking and Pre-Collision Throttle Management deliver additional protection to help you avoid an impact. Subaru’s unique safety and security service, SUBARU STARLINK™, will deliver even more protection to you and your loved ones. This service features Stolen Vehicle Recovery, Enhanced Roadside Assistance, Automatic Collision Notification and more.
If your in the market for a midsize car that touches all of the bases, look no further than the 2019 Legacy.
