New For 2014

The 2014 Subaru Legacy sees only minor changes. Subaru's EyeSight system is now available on 2.5i Premium models, and a rearview camera is now included with the power moonroof package on Premium and Limited models. The base model (the 2.5i) gets a new alloy-wheel package that includes foglamps and seventeen-inch all-season tires over aluminum wheels. The 2014 Subaru Legacy Sport now offers navigation. Aha integration is included with the navigation system for all models.

Vehicle Summary

The Subaru Legacy received a pleasant update last year. Fuel economy is up to 32 mpg on the highway, thanks to a revised continuously variable transmission and a slightly more efficient engine. The 3.6R model remains for those who favor acceleration over fuel savings. All Legacy sedans now feature a brake-override safety system. Subaru's optional camera-based EyeSight driver-assistance system adds precollision braking, pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning, and adaptive cruise control. Subaru has stiffened the Legacy's chassis and suspension, which Subaru claims reduces body roll by 40 percent. Standard audio systems now feature Bluetooth connectivity and audio streaming in addition to iPod controls and a USB port; the optional navigation system now includes a 7.0-inch touchscreen, voice control, a rearview camera, SiriusXM NavTraffic, and premium speakers. Limited models now feature a rear-seat air duct to help regulate cabin temperature.


All-wheel drive is a rarity in the mid-size-sedan segment, but it's a staple in Subaru's portfolio. Subaru traditionally had a difficult time selling the Legacy outside of the northern corners of the country (plus the entire state of Colorado) because all-wheel-drive systems used to carry such a big penalty in fuel economy. Now that the 2014 Subaru Legacy returns an EPA-rated 32 mpg on the highway, it appeals to car shoppers all over the country. Unfortunately, that fuel-economy figure is possible only with the CVT. We much prefer the manual transmission because it gives us control over the engine speed, but that control means losing 3 mpg.

Subaru had fallen behind in the technology race, but the EyeSight system includes the driver-assistance features we used to see only in pricey luxury cars. Fortunately, it's possible to order a Legacy with EyeSight but without Subaru's poor navigation system. Without navigation, the Legacy's interior is intuitive and comfortable. Like all Subarus, the Legacy is more function than fashion, but this interior should stand the test of time much better than competitors' that rely too much on touchscreens to handle all of the stereo and climate-control needs.

Overall, the 2014 Subaru Legacy competes well with better-known mid-size sedans 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.

You won't like:

With winter still exerting its chilly wrath across much of the country, many car shoppers want one key feature in a new car: all-wheel drive (AWD). With power delivered to all four wheels, there’s a better chance of getting traction in ice, snow, and slush. While we'd advise that fitting any car with winter tires can improve your cold-weather driving experience, an all-wheel-drive car does improve the chances of avoiding a costly bill from a friendly tow-truck. Fortunately, buying a car with all-wheel drive doesn't have to break the budget, as we’ve proven here with a list of the ten most affordable cars with AWD. We’ve focused on user-friendly cars and crossovers with full-time AWD, so you won’t find any trucks with off-road-style, part-time four-wheel-drive systems.

Recall Date
Subaru of America is recalling certain model year 2014 Legacy 3.6R and Outback 3.6R and 2013 Tribeca vehicles manufactured June 12, 2013, through June 28, 2013 and equipped with 5-speed automatic transmissions. In the affected vehicles, the parking rod may come loose inside the automatic transmission.
As a result of the parking rod detaching, the transmission may not be able to be moved from the "park" position preventing the vehicle from being moved or driven. Furthermore, even with the transmission shifted into the 'park' position, the parking mechanism may not engage, and the vehicle may roll away while in the "park" position, increasing the risk of a crash.
Subaru will notify owners, and dealers will replace the transmission, free of charge. The recall began during August 2013. Owners may contact Subaru at 1-800-782-2783. Subaru's recall number is WQJ-46.
