2012 Subaru Legacy Price


Subaru UK announced official pricing and specs of the new and revised Legacy Tourer.

The car famous for its versatility and toughness, is now also well-equipped and really rather good-looking. All that enhances its value for money factor. The most important change for 2012 is the fitting of Subaru’s next-generation Boxer diesel engine.  This Euro 5-compliant power unit features a more efficient turbocharger, new exhaust-camshaft timing and lighter connecting rods, and is mated with new oxidation catalytic converters and Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF).

That means the diesel Legacy is now a sub-160g/km car, which means it has many tax advantages.

The car also features new equipments, revised styling and all around a more refined experience. Details in Subaru press release below:

Improved refinement and comfort

The Legacy’s six-speed manual transmission (standard fit for diesel models) has been refined to improve its fuel efficiency, shift feel and its ease of operation.  Wider gear teeth, new synchromesh, lower friction bearings and low-viscosity transmission oil combine to deliver improved performance and refinement, while also helping to maximise the improvements made to the diesel engine.

Suspension modifications for all 2012 Legacy models include new bushes for the front anti-roll stabiliser bar mounts to improve ride comfort, new pressed upper rear suspension arms to reduce weight (saving 2 kg per car), and new pillow-ball bushes in the rear wishbones to reduce friction and provide a smoother ride.

With the introduction of the 2012 models, the Legacy Tourer line-up in the UK offers buyers a choice of five versions with a diesel or petrol engine and three trim levels – depending on model.  New Legacy Tourer prices start at £26,865 (OTR) and cover a £4,510 range.  Each model is so comprehensively equipped that the only factory-fitted option will be special paint finishes, priced at £500.

Additional equipment enhances value for money

Exterior changes are limited to new, aerodynamically smoother door mirrors, a higher-resolution rear view camera (SE NavPlus only) and the availability of a fresh new colour – Ice Silver Metallic.

Inside, the 2012 Legacy sports a single-CD unit featuring a large LCD display screen together with USB and iPod connectivity and steering wheel-mounted controls.  On diesel models (with manual transmission) the instrument cluster now has a ‘shift-up’ indicator to encourage an economical driving style.

The 2012 Legacy is comprehensively equipped and all models feature cruise control, a glass ‘tilt-n-slide’ sunroof, dual-zone fully automatic air-conditioning, a premium audio system with six speakers (including two tweeters), automatic lights and wipers and a powered driver’s seat.  A Bluetooth® hands-free system with voice activation is fitted as standard, while all but the S model are trimmed in black leather.  Models with Lineartronic transmission feature steering wheel mounted paddle-shifters as standard.

SE and SE NavPlus models now feature a ‘Sports Package’ which comprises a sports front bumper and front grille, dark tinted headlamps, larger 18-inch alloy wheels and special Bilstein dampers.  SE NavPlus models also feature a new DVD navigation system as standard, with a high-resolution eight-inch display for optimum clarity.

In the UK, the 2012 Legacy is available in a selection of six exterior body colours – one new colour (Ice Silver Metallic) – alongside five popular carry-over colours, Satin White, Galaxy Blue Silica, Crystal Black Silica, Graphite Grey Metallic and Camellia Red Pearl.

ETCo ‘Everything Taken Care of’ for 2012 Legacy buyers

Like all other Subaru models, the 2012 Legacy is backed up by Subaru’s new ‘Everything Taken Care of’ (ETCo) aftercare programme – guaranteeing complete peace of mind for the first three years of ownership.

Unique in the UK, the ETCo programme applies to retail sales only and offers a host of potential benefits worth over £7,000.
