    Expert Rating

    4.5 (Excellent)
    22 City / 29 Highway

    Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

    You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

    5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

    4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

    3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

    2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

    1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

    2013 Subaru Legacy OVERVIEW

    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.

    The 2013 Legacy comes in five trim levels, including: 2.5i, 2.5i Premium, 2.5i Limited, 3.6R and 3.6R Limited. The 2.5i trim level gives buyers and economical AWD vehicle at a fair price and with nice standard features. The 2.5i Premium adds in a few extra goodies to make the Legacy look and feel better. The 2.5i Limited gives buyers a premium sedan with excellent fuel economy and Subaru quality. The 3.6R is essentially a performance version of the base-model Legacy, but it does add in a few extra features. The 3.6R Limited is the top-of-the-line Legacy and features all of the performance and luxury expected of a premium sedan. Sure, the 3.6R is not a luxury performance sedan, but it’s as close as they come for under $30K.

    Competition is plentiful in the mid-sized sedan market, but few offer the same features that Subaru does. The first competitor for the 2013 Subaru Legacy is the 2013 Ford Fusion, which comes standard with a 2.5-liter engine with 175 horsepower, 34 mpg highway and a nice array of basic features. Next up is the 2013 Nissan Altima, which comes standard with a 182-horsepower, 2.5-liter engine, 38 mpg highway and standard features that you may not expect in a base sedan. The next competitor is the 2013 Kia Optima, which comes standard with a 2.4-liter engine with 200 horsepower, 35 mpg highway and standard SiriusXM radio. The final competitor is the 2013 Volkswagen Passat, which features a standard 2.5-liter engine with 170 horsepower, 32 mpg highway and a six-speaker audio system.

    Competition in the mid-size sedan realm is fierce, but the Legacy has a storied history in this realm and Subaru knows a thing or two about drawing in customers.
