2016 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Premium

What’s New?

Despite being among the larger cars on the market, the Subaru Legacy 2.5i boasts surprisingly good fuel economy. The steering system of the 2016 Subaru Legacy has been improved for better feel. On the Limited model, Subaru also returned the new shock absorbers for a smoother ride. The car is not only effective in snowy areas but it also works well on muddy and rain-soaked roads. If consumers are looking for an AWD that offers a memorable driving experience the Subaru Legacy is the one.

Exterior Features

On the outside, Subaru concentrated on making the Legacy sportier by providing it a more coupe-like appearance. Up front, there’s a fresh nosecone which is designed for the integration of the front bumper and grille. Subaru also redesigned the roof line by pulling the base of the windshield out 2 inches, raking it rearward against the previous-generation Legacy. For decent measure and more balanced weight distribution- Subaru swapped out a steel hood in exchange for an aluminum one.

Gone are those contentious headlights from the previous generation, and we see a return to a more traditional set of lights. Additionally, the funky-looking half grille has been dropped for a more old-style louvered grille, and the front-apron is cleaner. Around back, the taillights appear more elegant than previous year’s model, and the rear bumper wraps more suitably around the tailpipe. The exterior modifications have improved the Legacy’s aerodynamic efficiency by 10%.

Interior Features

The 2016 Subaru Legacy now comes standard with a USB port, Bluetooth, HD Radio, and a 6.2″ touch-screen infotainment system. There’ also a rearview camera, smartphone app integration and a 4-speaker audio system. Available features include a satellite radio, 12-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, and navigation. You can also opt for dual-zone automatic climate control, a moonroof, and a voice-activated infotainment system with a 7″ touch-screen display that responds to swiping and scrolling multi-touch gestures, like an iPad.


Bluetooth connectivity and, and a 4-speaker sound system are standard in the Legacy. It comes with a CD player, an iPod/USB interface, HD, and satellite radio, jack smartphone integration with Pandora and Aha audio streaming, and an auxiliary audio. Driving becomes a whole lot more exciting with a 6.2-inch touchscreen that controls many phone functions and entertainment. Limited and Premium come with cloud-based infotainment connected services and applications, including automatic collision notification and one-button emergency assistance.

Engine/ Fuel Efficiency

The 2016 Subaru Legacy provides two engines: a 3.6-liter six-cylinder and a 2.5-liter four-cylinder. The EPA rates the 4-cylinder Legacy at 30 MPG combined driving (26 city/36 highway), an excellent result in this class specifically taking into account that all-wheel drive usually drags fuel economy down one point or two. A lineartronic continually variable transmission (CVT) gives the Legacy a strong 175-horsepower and 174 lb-ft @4,000 rpm. This engine is standard on all 2.5i models but increases to a 3.6L DOHC engine with a 256HP and 247 lb-ft of torque (though this model is $8,000 more than the basic model).

The 2016 Subaru Legacy comes standard with antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control. There are also front side, side curtain, and seat cushion airbags which deploy to protect occupants in a frontal collision. On the Limited and Premium models, customers can also get Starlink Connected Services which includes automatic collision notification and emergency assistance. This can be improved with the optional Security Plus and Safety Plus upgrade that adds remote vehicle-locating, remote vehicle access, and the stolen vehicle recovery. Another incredible safety modification for 2016 is that an optional EyeSight system currently includes the lane departure intervention.
