There’s a sense of satisfaction in doing things differently than the rest. Like building a sedan that offers surefooted handling and refined smoothness. Invigorating performance with reassuring safety. And thoughtful innovation with long-lasting reliability. The balance of these virtues working together harmoniously in the Legacy is what delivers the confidence to relish every curve when you chase the things that matter most to you.
"If you're looking for a sedan as well regarded for its safety as its comfort, the 2013 Subaru Legacy deserves a long look. A huge back seat and cavernous trunk are definite pluses, but it's the Legacy's sure-footed standard AWD, impressive crash test ratings and excellent fuel economy that we love."1 - KBB.com
"Subaru has racked up more endorsements by independent arbiters of automotive quality and safety than just about any other manufacturer." - FORTUNE Magazine, December 3, 2012
"A 2013 IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus and Top Safety Pick for eight years running (2006–2013)." - Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS)

Whether it's a weekend around town or a quick getaway, make your drive as efficient as it is fun. With the Lineartronic® CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission), you'll get the highest MPG possible at every speed, making every journey longer and more enjoyable.
The Lineartronic® CVT available in the Legacy 2.5i models is a chain-driven, low-maintenance unit that transforms the driving experience. Instead of the traditional shifting through each gear, the CVT continuously adjusts to the engine's demands to ensure the highest MPG possible. The CVT in the Legacy also features paddle shifters and 6-speed manual mode, so you can savor the classic joy of running through the gears as you carve your favorite ribbon of road.
The 2.5i offers a 4-cylinder SUBARU BOXER® engine that generates 173 horsepower and 174 lb-ft of torque. That's ample power for a confident drive. What's more, when paired with Lineartronic® CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission), you can get up to 32 miles to the gallon and achieve over 590 miles on a full tank.1 You'll spend more time enjoying your getaways and less time filling up.
1 Driving range based on 18.5-gallon fuel tank capacity and EPA estimated fuel economy for 2014 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Lineatronic® CVT at 32 highway MPG. Actual driving range may vary.
A wealth of ultra-smooth power at the ready. That's the hallmark of the 3.6-liter 6-cylinder—the largest SUBARU BOXER® engine available. It produces 256 horsepower and 247 lb-ft of torque, moving the Legacy 3.6R models with effortless confidence over the road. For smooth shifting to match the delivery of power, it's paired with the 5-speed automatic transmission.
Driving is pure pleasure when a car is truly dialed in, which is why the Legacy comes equipped with quick-ratio steering. The quicker ratio is designed to make the Legacy more responsive to the driver, giving you sharp turn-in and smooth transitions for an even more enjoyable drive.
For optimum performance, experience the 6-speed manual to take advantage of the engine's output with a shifter that's been engineered for more precise shifts. Or go for smoothness with control with the 5-speed automatic with manual mode, paddle shifters and downshift rev-matching. And if it's a more efficient drive you seek, experience the Lineartronic® CVT with 6-speed manual mode and paddle shifters.
Combining years of rally racing experience and the demands of daily real-world driving, the Legacy 4-wheel independent suspension design maximizes the feel you have for the road. The double-wishbone rear suspension absorbs the worst of the bumps without unsettling the rigid chassis. And, complemented with MacPherson struts up front, it's a tight, yet supple ride that always leaves you in touch and in control.
Well planned. Well connected.
The available clear, electroluminescent gauges make it easy to check your stats.
With over 100 cubic feet of passenger space, every Legacy passenger enjoys a roomy cabin with generous legroom in the back, plenty of hip room in the front, and spacious headroom all around.
The available 440-watt, 9-speaker Harman Kardon premium audio system includes HD Radio® and SiriusXM® Satellite Radio1 and Bluetooth® hands-free calling. You can also stream your own tunes from your Bluetooth®-capable device or use the USB to plug in your iPod® for even more ways to immerse yourself in your music.
The available 7-inch high-res touch-screen and voice-activated navigation system make finding that perfect drive easier. Now it also includes Aha™ connected service2 via the Subaru STARLINK™ system with seamless access to web content such as podcasts, internet radio, audiobooks and personalized restaurant and hotel searches.
Dual-zone automatic temperature controls, convenient steering-wheel-mounted controls and a 10-way adjustable driver’s seat are available to let you customize your environment with ease.
1 SiriusXM® Satellite Radio hardware standard as part of Harman Kardon audio system. Activation and required monthly subscription sold separately. Includes 4-month trial subscription. See your dealer.
2 Compatible smartphone and free Aha app required. For Aha to operate, latest version of Aha application and optional integrated audio and navigation system unit required.

Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive
Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive continually keeps the power routed to all four wheels, ensuring an outstanding grip in snow, rain or rough road. And now it's even better at handling steep inclines and harsher terrain.
With a push of the button, the available X-MODETM featuring Hill Descent Control takes control of the engine, transmission, AWD and brakes at low speeds to help you more easily navigate bad roads, slippery surfaces and steep hills with confidence. Hill Descent Control is especially helpful when you're descending a steep hill, making sure your Legacy descends at a set speed. In the all-new Legacy, you can count on control in almost any condition.
Continually grabbing for the best grip on the road, Subaru Symmetrical AWD sends power to the wheels with the best traction when other wheels lose theirs. It's the freedom you need to tackle steep or rough roads with confidence.
With Subaru Symmetrical AWD proactively sending power to all four wheels all the time, the vehicle has more than enough traction to climb the hill.
With many front-wheel-drive-biased AWD systems, power distribution is more reactive and power transfer often takes place after slippage occurs, resulting in a struggle for traction.
When danger steps into your path, the safest course is to step around it. The signature traction, stability and control of Subaru Symmetrical AWD help you steer clear of trouble.
The pistons move horizontally in 180-degree opposition to each other, so each naturally cancels out the vibrations of the other. The end result is smooth and controlled power.
The engine's flat design is inherently rigid and experiences less vibration than traditional "V" or inline engines. In other words, it's extremely well built and uniquely durable, so you can get more out of it.
The SUBARU BOXER® engine has a lower profile and is centered for greater stability.
The engine's lower profile and symmetrical design, delivers a more grounded, balanced drive. It feels responsive, tight in the turns and stable in maneuvers, allowing you to drive with more confidence.
“A 2013 IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus and Top Safety Pick for eight years running (2006–2013).”1 – Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS)
It’s under the most challenging circumstances that you find the true value of what you drive. With advanced accident avoidance and exceptional passenger protection, the Legacy is engineered to be at its best in a worst-case scenario. And with available EyeSight®, a revolutionary driver-assist system that monitors the road ahead and if necessary can help bring your vehicle to a complete stop, you have the confidence of knowing that—in a changing world—we’re always watching out2.
To make the Legacy even safer, we added a driver's side knee airbag, bringing the total to seven standard airbags for additional protection in the event of a crash.3
Our Ring-shaped Reinforcement Frame is exceptionally strong for maximum resistance to impact energy, while its unique configuration helps divert that energy away from occupants. Also, front, front-seat side and side-curtain airbags3–standard on every Legacy–surround outboard occupants in the event of a crash to further help prevent injury. Offering further protection, the SUBARU BOXER® engine features a unique, low-profile design and drivetrain layout that helps it push down and away from the passenger area in a collision.
Before you can avoid danger, you have to see it coming. The Legacy features an available Rear-Vision Camera that gives you a clearer view of the area behind your vehicle, so you can be in charge of your surroundings.
Safety begins with avoidance. The traction and balance of the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and the stability of the SUBARU BOXER® engine provide you with the outstanding control you need to react to hazards. Every Legacy also comes with standard VDC electronic stability control, which can detect a loss of control and intervene to help keep you on your intended path.
Powerful and reliable disc brakes are teamed with advanced technologies to help you stop short of danger. Antilock brakes help make sure you don’t lose traction, and the advanced Brake Assist system helps ensure maximum pressure is applied to the brakes as quickly as possible in an emergency situation.

2 EyeSight is a driver-assist system which may not operate optimally under all driving conditions. The driver is always responsible for safe and attentive driving. System effectiveness depends on many factors such as vehicle maintenance, weather and road conditions. See Owner's Manual for complete details on system operations and limitations. Please remember to turn off EyeSight when going through a carwash.
3 The Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) (airbags) affords the driver and the front and rear outboard passengers additional protection in moderate to severe frontal and side-impact collisions. This system provides supplemental protection only, and seatbelts must be worn to avoid injuries to out-of-position occupants upon airbag deployment and to provide the best combined protection in a serious accident. Children should always be properly restrained in the rear seat.
The most important thing a Subaru can do is protect the people in it. We're always looking for better ways to do it, and now the 2014 Legacy is available with an innovative new driver-assist system that's watching the road with you: EyeSight®1. Like a second pair of eyes for the road ahead, it watches for potential danger, warns you when it spots it, and can even apply brakes to help you avoid it.

Our connection to our owners and the life they live is forever unfolding at Subaru.
The Subaru "Share the Love" sales event began in 2008 as a way for Subaru to give back to causes our owners are passionate about. During the event, for every new vehicle leased or sold, Subaru donated $250 to the owner's choice of five participating charities. After five years of the Share the Love sales event, Subaru has donated nearly $25 million dollars. This year's participating charities included the Alzheimer's Association®, ASPCA®, Make-A-Wish®, Meals on Wheels Association of America® and USO. We're thrilled that we've been able to help such deserving causes and are grateful to our owners for helping us make this event a success year after year.

"This past weekend the kids and I set out for one last trip before they had to go back to school. In search of California's state fish, the golden trout, we car camped with friends near Mono Pass and day hiked into this incredible string of lakes known as Little Lakes Valley. We caught 25 fish within 3 hours. Rainbows, brookies and yes, the elusive golden trout! The kids were in heaven."
"Once again our Forester comfortably held all the gear and food (basically everything we needed) for our 4-day car camping trip without any problems. We sure had ourselves a summer!" – Terry P., Long Beach, CA
"I bought this car with 110,000 miles on it. I only changed the oil, tires, exhaust, and brakes. Never had problems with it and I'm still driving it. My co-workers always asked me, "How many miles now?" When I got close to 300,000 miles, they were curious if I would make it. So, I made this special photo and sent it to them. Well now I have 302,000 miles, and it's still going strong. Just got new tires today, so I guess I'm keeping it a bit longer." – Marvin W., Belding, MI
"I take my Subaru on all kinds of adventures through the mountain roads in all kinds of weather. This particular time I got caught in a blizzard at the top of Squaw Pass, which leads to the base of Mt. Evans. Other than my snowboard, I'm not sure how else I could have gotten down. It was not only relaxing, but even fun at times." – Steven B., Lakewood, CO

"I just purchased my second Subaru, a 2011 Legacy Premium, and I love it already. It replaces my 2004 Legacy. This new Subaru is my immediate family's 11th Subaru. The oldest still on the road is a 1993 Legacy wagon with 294K miles on the original motor and transmission. We love Subaru because they are safe, reliable and dependable cars. One time my uncle got hit in his Outback and it rolled, and he and my cousin got out and walked away with no injuries. I am a paramedic and my Legacy has gotten me to work in every snowstorm. Our family won't buy another brand. Subaru for life here in Mystic, Conneticut." – Kenneth R., Mystic, CT
Each accident is unique and serious injuries are always possible, even in a Subaru.
We love the outdoors too, so we took extra steps to preserve it. Available in every state, every 2014 non-turbo Forester and Impreza, XV Crosstrek, and select Legacy and Outback models are certified Partial Zero Emission Vehicles (PZEV). A hard to achieve rating that means these vehicles can have even lower emissions than some hybrids or alternative fuel vehicles.
