In 2015 the carconnection.com gave the Subaru Legacy ‘Best Car to Buy’ and rightly so. Fast forward to the 2017 Subaru Legacy, and there is nothing but improvements being made to the mid size sedan.
The front of the Legacy has been upgraded with a chrome plated grille with the Subaru logo at the center. The grille is covered with a couple of new LED fog headlights and also LED taillights. 18″ wheels are standard on the Sport trim, as well as chrome accenting.
The back seats have a split-folding capacity which creates more space for cargo. The standard features include a Starlink touch screen infotainment framework which has a backup camera. The cabin is pretty roomy and the seats can optionally come with a leather trim too.
As standard, the Legacy gets an anti-lock braking system, an anti-theft security system, and daytime running lights too. There are also dual front, and front-seat side-impact airbags in place. All wheel drive comes as standard across all trims. The 2016 Legacy passed all safety tests with flying colors, and this year’s model is no different.
The 2017 Subaru Legacy has the latest standard technology features. Bluetooth connectivity, power operated mirrors, keyless entry and windows, Smartphone integration, air conditioning and a CD player all come as standard. There is also a 7″ touchscreen as standard on all models.
The standard engine for the 2017 Legacy is a 2.5 L H4 with the capability to produce 175 hp and 174 lb-ft of torque. The engine is paired with a CVT system. The best thing about the Legacy? All trims come standard with all wheel drive – something that in other models can add a lot of extra cost. The fuel efficiency rating with the standard engine is 25/34 city/ highway at a combination of 29 MPG.
If you want to go for the 3.6R Limited trim, the engine is a 3.6L H6 with a capability of 256 hp, 247 lb-ft torque, and a fuel efficiency rating of 20/28 city/ highway. The 3.6R Limited starts at $31,640.
