The Legacy was an all-wheel-drive mid-size sedan (and previously, also a wagon) designed for the American market from the start, debuting in 1989 and becoming the first Subaru to be manufactured in the United States. Production has remained at Subaru’s Lafayette, Ind., plant ever since. Since then, the Legacy has become Subaru’s longest-running model line across six generations. According to Subaru, over 1.3 million Legacys have been sold in the U.S. alone, and over 94% of Legacys sold in the last decade remain on the road today.

The Outback, which will remain in production after 2025, was initially a more rugged, off-road-oriented trim of the Legacy wagon. Since then, it’s been spun off into its own separate nameplate of mildly lifted, cladded vehicles that further blur the line between wagons and crossovers.

Subaru’s decision to pare the Legacy from its model lineup comes amid its plans for more electrified vehicles throughout its model line and shifting consumer demand away from sedans and toward more SUVs. The company plans to offer eight electric-vehicle models by 2028, which is a big task for a smaller automaker.
