The Legacy is the longest running Subaru model in the U.S., and for good reason. It has always offered a wide array of models and boy styles to fit just about any buyer. In more recent years, the Legacy has settled into being offered only as a four-door sedan.
For the 2013 model year, Subaru refreshed the Legacy lineup by adding in a new front bumper, headlights and grille, giving the sedan a sportier look. Also added in for the 2013 model year is a 2.5-liter boxer engine that produces three more horsepower and four more pound-feet of torque. This new engine, when paired to the optional second-gen CVT, gets up to 32 mpg, making it extremely fuel efficient too. The suspension was also revised to increase comfort and agility. Also added in were upgraded sound systems and Subaru’s all-new optional EyeSight system.
For the 2013 Subaru Legacy 2.5i is the base model and comes standard with a 2.5-liter engine with 173 horsepower and 174 foot-pounds of torque. The engine connects to a six-speed manual transmission and sends power through Subaru’s all-wheel-drive system. On the outside, the Legacy 2.5i features basic amenities, like: 16-by-6.5-inch steel wheel with hubcaps, four-wheel disc brakes with ABS and electronic brake-force distribution, daytime running lights, stability and traction control, ground effects, body-color door handles, halogen headlights with auto on and off, power mirrors, and intermittent wipers. Inside the cabin, the 2.5i includes: two 12-volt outlets, three-spoke steering wheel with audio, Bluetooth and cruise controls, air conditioning, cabin air filter, AM/FM/CD audio system with four speakers, auxiliary jack, iPod integration, Bluetooth connectivity and USB port, chrome door handles, dual map lights, power windows, etched-silver accents, grocery bag hooks, and trunk light.
The Legacy 2.5i Limited is the peak trim with the 2.5-liter engine and adds in all sorts of premium features to the 2.5i Premium trim level. On the outside, the 2.5i Limited adds in a Lineartronic CVT with manual mode and paddle shifters, heated side-view mirrors, windshield wiper deicer and exterior fog lights. Inside the cabin, the 2.5i Limited throws in: heated front seats, four-way power passenger seat, rear ventilation, AM/FM/SiriusXM/HD radio with 440 watts, nine speakers, 4.3-inch LCD display, Bluetooth audio streaming, iPod connectivity and USB port, dual-zone climate control, electroluminescent instrument panel with 3.5-inch LCD screen, perforated leather seating, silver-painted shifter with black inlay, and dark wood-grain trim.
The 2.5i Premium trim level takes what the 2.5i started and adds more premium features to it. On the outside, the 2.5i Premium trim level adds in body-color side-view mirrors, 17-inch alloy wheels and stainless-steel exhaust tip. Inside the cabin, the 2.5i Premium makes the Legacy more suited for long trips by adding in: 10-way power driver seat, six-speaker audio system, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter knob, ambient lighting, and upper-windshield shade band.
The 3.6R trim level reverts back to the base trimmings of the 2.5i trim level, but adds in a 256-horsepower, 3.6-liter engine, a five-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters and an array of additional features. On the outside, the 3.6R takes the 2.5i’s base features and adds in: Variable Torque Distribution AWD, rev-match downshifting, 17-inch alloy wheels, body-color mirrors, dual stainless-steel exhaust tips and oversized front and rear brake rotors – 12.4 and 11.4 inches, respectively. Inside the cabin, the 3.6R takes on the 2.5i’s features and adds in: dash storage bin, auto up and down power windows, illuminated power window switches, ambient lighting, silver-painted shifter with black inlay, and upper-windshield tint strip.
The 3.6R Limited gives the 3.6R package all of the luxury features to satisfy just about any buyer. On the outside, the 3.6R Limited adds in: heated mirrors, windshield wiper deicer and aluminum doorsill plates. Inside the cabin, the 3.6R adds in a 10-way power driver seat, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter knob, four-way power passenger seat, dual-zone climate control, perforated leather seating, and 440-watt, nine-speaker AM/FM/SiriusXM/HD radio with 4.3-inch LCD display, Bluetooth audio streaming, iPod connectivity and USB port.
