What Is the 2019 Subaru Legacy?
The Subaru Legacy is a mid-size sedan that's the basis for the automaker's Outback wagon, a quasi-SUV that outsells the Legacy by a significant margin. The Legacy seats five and comes with standard all-wheel drive. Most models use a 175-horsepower, 2.5-liter horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine, while the high-end Limited can have an optional 256-hp, 3.6-liter horizontally opposed six-cylinder. Both engines team with a continuously variable automatic transmission. Competitors include the Chevrolet Malibu, Honda Accord, Hyundai Sonata, Nissan Altima and Toyota Camry.
What’s New on the 2019 Subaru Legacy?
Subaru's EyeSight safety system is now standard. EyeSight includes adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking, lane departure warning and lane-keeping assist. A multimedia system with a 6.5-inch screen, an updated instrument panel with a 5-inch display and dual USB ports on the front center console are also standard. Blind spot warning and rear cross-traffic alert are included on the 2.5i Sport trim level.
What Features in the 2019 Subaru Legacy Are Most Important?
If safety is a priority, the now standard EyeSight system gives the Legacy a leg up; the system is highly rated by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. In addition, the Legacy comes with the security of all-wheel drive, which is a rare feature among mainstream mid-size sedans. Standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity is a useful tech feature, and the car's cabin materials are a cut above the norm among mid-size family sedans, even on lower-priced trims.
Should I Buy the 2019 Subaru Legacy?
The Legacy stands apart from the herd of mid-size sedans because of its standard all-wheel-drive system. Other mid-size sedans offer more style, better fuel economy and better handling and acceleration, but the Legacy is a practical choice that puts safety and security ahead of other considerations.
