The 2018 Subaru Legacy received several updates for the new model year. Special attention paid to the infotainment system and interior design keeps it at the top of a very competitive segment.
The 2018 Subaru Legacy makes a concerted effort to provide the utmost comfort to its five potential passengers. High-quality, soft-touch materials have been put to good use all throughout the cabin, while noise-reducing laminated front side glass and re-profiled side mirrors help keep unwanted sounds out, contributing to a serene traveling atmosphere. The driver gets the best seat in the house: a 10-way, power-adjustable seat with lumbar support that comes standard on all but the base trim. Rear passengers have plenty to enjoy too, including heated seats, rear air conditioning outlets and rear USB charging ports.
The 2018 Subaru Legacy is the most spacious car in its class. It offers up to 40 inches of front headroom, 43 inches of front legroom and 58 inches of front shoulder room, with nearly as much space available for rear passengers. In total, the Subaru Legacy boasts 104.6 cubic feet of passenger volume, which according to the EPA is more total interior volume than any other midsize car. If you need a lot of space, but don’t want to make the step up to a crossover or SUV, the Legacy is clearly the top choice. It also offers a generous 15 cubic feet of trunk space to boot.
The 2018 Subaru Legacy is equipped with a 6.5-inch or 8.0-inch STARLINK™ touchscreen infotainment system that comes standard with Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™ and Pandora® app integration. Available features include a voice-activated TomTom navigation system and easy access to all your favorite news, music, podcasts and more via a nearly endless selection of STARLINK apps. And while listening to Aha™, iHeartRadio® or SiriusXM® All Access Radio™, you can enjoy the best possible sound courtesy of the Harmon Kardon® premium sound system, which comes with a 576-watt equivalent GreenEdge™ amplifier and 12 speakers.
As one of countless midsize cars on the market, the Legacy is often overlooked in favor of more mainstream nameplates. With the 2018 model, however, it is clear the car deserves the full attention of anyone seeking a new midsize sedan for their family, especially when interior features and space are of extra importance.
