2013 Subaru Legacy


2012 New York Auto Show also sees unveiling of the new Subaru Legacy. The versatile family saloon is better-equipped than ever, and has the highest quality.

Design-wise 2013 Subaru Legacy features new, sportier front styling with new headlights, grille and front bumper. The changes will further enhance the appeal of the Subaru Legacy, which has sold in record numbers since its 2010 redesign. With standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, the 2013 Subaru Legacy remains the most fuel-efficient midsize all-wheel drive sedan in America.

Like its Outback sister, the sedan gets the new 173 hp and 174 lb.-ft. of torque 2.5 liter boxer engine. The 2013 Subaru Legacy 3.6R continues with a 256-horsepower 3.6-liter 6-cylinder Boxer engine and 5-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission. The latter is a car literally for every occasion.
