DESIGN

REACH GREATER HEIGHTS.

Just right. You’ll recognise it when you feel it. That’s the feeling you get from Legacy. A seamless blend of elegant design and Subaru engineering, the sporty and smooth driving feel of Legacy takes you wherever you need to go in comfort and style, even on those long rides. At the end of each day, Legacy helps you find the confidence and motivation to boldly face the challenges of tomorrow.

Your partner in life.

There’s more cargo room to accommodate your daily demands. Should you need more room, the 60/40 folding rear seats can also be adjusted in an instant to make room for longer items and extra packages, even with a passenger still riding in the rear seat.


SUBARU BOXER Engine.

Few other cars drive with the self-assured confidence of the Legacy, so you won’t be surprised by how uniquely it is accomplished. The horizontally opposed configuration of the SUBARU BOXER engine places the pistons 180 degrees apart, for a lower, flatter profile than other engine types. This gives the engine, and therefore the overall vehicle, a lower centre of gravity and better sense of balance. Further, the pistons’ opposing movements inherently counteract each other, naturally helping to reduce vibration.


Technology with a human touch.

Make your day-to-day brilliant. The ingenious design and technology of the Legacy work exceptionally well and are especially useful. A centre touchscreen and LCD meter centre display give you access to it all. A premium audio system with 12 Harman/Kardon speakers is available for your enjoyment. Plus, the entire infotainment system is compatible with smartphones, making it easy to stay connected.


Lineartronic

Designed to get the most out of your SUBARU BOXER engine and Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, the efficient Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission keeps the engine in its ideal power range to give the Legacy its improved fuel consumption. The shift controls keep the ride light, smooth and responsive on the 3.6-litre engine, whilst the Lineartronic in 3.6R-S also handles the higher-torque output with less mechanical noise for a smoother, quieter drive. The shift controls have a stepped variable control that stays in tune with changes in vehicle speed and engine speed, allowing the driver to feel shift points when accelerating to form a strong and comfortable connection between car and driver.


Steering Responsive Headlights (SRH)*

When rounding a curve at night, the illumination direction of the headlights moves left or right according to the steering wheel to ensure visibility.

18-inch Aluminium-alloy Wheels*

Multi-spoke 18-inch aluminium-alloy wheels have a Legacy-exclusive, rugged appearance and an aerodynamic design for improved fuel efficiency. Together with the 225/50R18 high-performance tyres, they make an attractive addition to your Legacy.


LED Front Fog Lamps

These LED Front Fog Lamps illuminate a wider area to ensure good visibility for nighttime driving.

Twin Tail Mufflers

These enlarged tail mufflers hint at the sporty performance within.

Large Sunroof

Enjoy a more open feel with the large, panoramic sunroof. The inner sliding sunroof includes tilt-up and auto-reverse features to bring in plenty of light at your command.

Automatic Rain-sensing Windshield Wipers

Available automatic windshield wipers detect rainfall on the glass and adjust their wiping intervals and speed accordingly.


60/40 Folding Rear Seats

The 60/40 folding rear seats can also adjust in an instant to make room for longer items and extra packages even with a passenger still riding in the rear seat.

Spacious Trunk

Even without the 60/40 seats folded down, the Legacy trunk can accommodate a wide assortment of items.


SAFETY

Subaru’s World-leading Driver Assist Technology

At Subaru, we believe in ALL-AROUND SAFETY, and an important part of that is pre-collision safety, making sincere efforts to ensure an accident never happens. That’s why we created EyeSight*1, Subaru’s cutting-edge driving support system. Like a second pair of eyes for the road ahead, EyeSight uses two stereo cameras to capture three-dimensional colour images with excellent image recognition, nearly as capable as the human eye. Using images from both cameras to precisely determine the shape, speed and distance, it not only detects vehicles but also motorbikes, bicycles, and pedestrians.*2 When spotting potential danger, it warns the driver and even applies the brakes if necessary to help avoid an accident. With improved safety performance like this, EyeSight reduces the burden on the driver and enhances your sense of security in the Legacy.

Safety equipment in every direction


Cabin-protecting Layout

Every Subaru goes above and beyond common practice when it comes to your safety. In the event of a head-on collision, your Legacy’s SUBARU BOXER engine and gearbox are designed to avoid moving into the cabin for your protection.

Supplemental Restraint System (SRS)* Airbags

Front SRS* airbags, front side SRS* airbags, curtain SRS* airbags, and knee SRS* airbags come standard on the Legacy to give all passengers a higher level of protection in the event of a collision.

Ring-shaped Reinforcement Frame

The Ring-shaped Reinforcement Frame strengthens the passenger cabin from the roof to the doors, pillars and floor. This design helps to divert and dissipate impact energy away from the occupants in a collision. It also contributes to strengthening and lightening the chassis, leading to greater, reinforced protection..

TECHNOLOGY

Subaru’s core technology

Subaru prides itself on being unique in the automotive world in that its vehicles make use of incredibly special technology, which not only gives them a unique presence but also provides inherent benefits to safety, fuel economy and driving enjoyment.

Why SUBARU BOXER Engine?

The boxer engine derives its name from the horizontal movement of its pistons, which resembles the quick, jab-like motions of a boxer’s fists. Although not a global standard, Subaru remains solely committed to the SUBARU BOXER engine because it embodies the Subaru promise of delivering enjoyment and peace of mind to all passengers. It also represents our steadfast commitment to technological innovation and engineering excellence.

On the road, this means ultimate handling prowess and confidence and when the going gets rough, precise power distribution makes obstacle-climbing and dirt road handling an impeccably easy and safe affair.

What makes it unique?

Unlike traditional “in-line” or “V-type” engine configurations, the pistons’ opposing movements inherently counteract each other, naturally helping to reduce vibration without the need for counter-balancers, which add weight and complexity.

What are its advantages?

The flat design of the SUBARU BOXER engine provides more stability and balance for better cornering, representing Subaru’s dedication to advanced driving safety. In the event of a frontal collision, the low placement design pushes the engine below the cabin, reducing risk of passenger injury.

Why Lineartronic?

Subaru Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) incorporates two adjustable pulleys with a chain link for stepless gear ratio. This feature ensures a smooth and comfortable driving experience with optimum power at any speed for better fuel efficiency.

Why Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive?

Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system evenly and continuously distributes power to all four wheels. This stable layout, with even weight distribution, gives the vehicle better overall balance and precision cornering control, allowing sufficient traction in slippery conditions to help keep you safe in bad weather and uneven roads.
