About Subaru Legacy

Subaru Legacy was unveiled in Japan in 1989, and came as 1990 model worldwide. Larger and refined, this mid-size car replaced the compact Subaru Loyale. Being introduced over two decades ago, Subaru Legacy remains popular and the largest vehicle produced by Subaru in the U.S. The model was available in 5-door wagon or 4-door sedan body styles with front-wheel drive and optional all-wheel drive packages. It was actually often chosen as a winter-beating alternative to the mid-size sedan or wagon segment due to all wheel drive package. Offered in L and LS trim levels, the first generation Legacy came with 2,2-liter flat (horizontally opposed) 4-cylinder engine, which delivered 130 hp at 5600 rpm and 137 pound-feet of torque at 4400 rpm. In 1991 the Legacy Sport sedan and the LSi luxury sedan appeared, while Sport sedan used a turbocharged version of 2,2-liter flat 4-cylinder engine, which produced 160 hp at 5600 rpm and 181 pound-feet of torque at 2800 rpm. The turbocharged engine was also used by new Touring wagon (two wagon models, LSi luxury and Touring wagon models were added in 1993). In 1994 the trim levels of wagon added four new lifestlye models, based on the Legacy L, which are: "Sun Sport", "Alpine Sport", "GT lifestyle", and "Outdoor lifestyle". For the period of first generation Legacy production, 204,168 units were sold in the U.S.

The second generation 1995 model featured two-inch-longer wheelbase and wore new sheetmetal. Since 1996 North American Legacy came with all-wheel drive as a standard equipment. The trim levels for Legacy sedan were: base, L, LS, and LSi. Legacy wagons consisted of base, L, LS, new Brighton, and Outback configurations. The engine used for all Legacy models, but the LSi wagon and the GT sedan and wagon was 2.2-liter, horizontally opposed 4-cylinder engine. The LSi wagon and the GT sedan and wagon got new 155-hp 2.5-liter flat 4-cylinder engine. Concerning the transmission, LS and LSi models came with four-speed automatic, while five-speed manual transmission was standard for other models. In 1997 the 2,2-liter engine gained two horsepower, while the larger 2,5-liter engine gained 10 horsepower. The same year “Limited” model was introduced. An upgrade for safety equipment in Legacy model line was dual airbags set as standard. The LS, LSi, and Outback featured standard antilock brakes, which were optional on the L, and unavailable on the Brighton. In 1999 a special 30th Anniversary Edition appeared, which featured upgraded interior parts, sunroof, spoiler, and alloy wheels.

Starting from 2000, the third generation model was offered with new styling Legacy parts and increase in size appearing in length. It received daytime running lamps, cabin air filters, outside-temperature gauge, variable-assist power steering, and automatic-off headlights. The refreshed Legacy kept 2,5-liter four-cylinder engine though. Five-speed manual gearbox was standard, when four-speed automatic transmission was optional. The Outback wagons were a separate model line then. Legacy sedans were offered in L, GT, and GT Limited trim levels. Wagons consisted of Brighton, L, and GT. The third generation Legacy now featured front seatbelt pretensioners and antilock braking as standard. Updated in 2005, the Legacy still targeted mainstream passenger-car buyers. The forth generation model came with new styling parts, stiffer chassis, additional features, and more power. The 2,5i models (2.5i, 2.5i Limited, 2.5GT, and 2.5GT Limited) came with 168-hp 4-cylinder engine, when the 250-hp turbocharged version of that engine was used by Legacy 2,5 GT/GT Limited. Since 2007 all models included SI-Drive (Subaru Intelligent Drive) with three modes: Intelligent, Sport, and Sport Sharp, also satellite radio with AUX inputs for the stereo. Another upgrade was the introduction of 3.0 L flat-6 engine to Legacy sedan in 2008. The same year Legacy wagon discontinued in the U.S. The fifth generation sedan was unveiled at the 2009 New York Auto Show. It offered the 3,0 R and the 3.0 R Limited, new trims with 245-hp 6-cylinder. Available in 2.5i, 2.5i Special Edition, 2.5i Limited, and 2.5 GT trims, Legacy was powered by horizontally-opposed 4-cylinder engine with an output of 170 hp. As for safety features, new Legacy was equipped by ABS, traction control, curtain side airbags, antiskid system, and front side airbags.

The flagship to the Subaru franchise is of course, the Legacy, a smoothly performing sedan that has evolved with more grace than perhaps any of its competitors. The Legacy does not know many limits, and recently the car just puts on a show. Athletic and strong, the Legacy also demonstrates a simple kind of elegance that is utterly delightful, yet offers the owner an opportunity to enhance it with stylish accessories. There have been many others in its class that have garnered some headlines, but the Legacy has been a newsmaker from the start. Excellent traction, refined handling, dependable Legacy parts, and dashing style make this model one of the industry's heavyweights.
