2012 subaru legacy Reviews and News

2012 Subaru Legacy
2012 Subaru Legacy
The Legacy is a hidden gem in the mid-size-sedan segment. New in 2010, the Legacy offers a class-leading ride and handling package along with standard all-wheel drive, which isn't even an option on most of the Legacy's mid-size competitors. The Legacy is available in a large range of models, from the basic 2.5i powered by a 170-hp horizontally opposed four-cylinder to the sporty 265-hp 2.5GT, which is outfitted with a turbocharged engine mated to a slick six-speed manual gearbox. Subaru also offers six-cylinder power in 3.6R models. The 3.6-liter six-cylinder makes slightly less power than the turbocharged 2.5-liter in the 2.5GT, but the six doesn't require the use of premium fuel. Buyers who don't want to deal with the manual transmission in the 2.5GT might instead enjoy the five-speed automatic transmission in the 3.6R. The automatic provides paddle shifters for those times when manual control of the transmission is beneficial. We like the Legacy and its wagon cousin, the Outback, and we greatly appreciate the increase in rear-seat legroom that came with the changes for 2010. Overall, the Legacy competes well with better-known mid-size cars such as the Honda Accord, the Volkswagen Passat, and the Toyota Camry. It's worth a test drive, especially if all-wheel drive is on your wish list.

It used to be that when you thought of Subaru, you thought of the Legacy. In fact, as recently as five years ago it was the best-selling nameplate in the Subaru lineup. Then Subaru decided that the Legacy and the Outback needed to be distinct models, with the result that the Outback wagon now outsells the Legacy sedan by more than a two to one margin, which isn't hard to believe, because the Outback, with its wagon body style and more rugged demeanor, is a more versatile vehicle than the Legacy sedan.

Subaru has released information on its new EyeSight safety system that will include collision mitigation, lane departure warning, and adaptive cruise control all in one package. Subaru's new safety package is set to debut this April at the New York International Auto Show on the 2013 Legacy and 2013 Outback.
