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.

2019 Subaru Legacy OVERVIEW

Subaru’s evergreen Legacy remains the only midsize sedan to have all-wheel drive as standard across the range. The Indiana-built Legacy now has improved safety and infotainment equipment, priced from $23,430.

What's New for 2019

For the 2019 model year, Subaru has updated the Legacy’s safety features by introducing a series of braking and steering aids. Collectively known as EyeSight, they’ve added $350 to the range’s starting price. Base models gain a 6.5-inch multimedia screen, including Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

Choosing Your Subaru Legacy

Subaru has always followed a distinct path in terms of engineering, and the Legacy continues that theme. Its BOXER engines have an unusual horizontal cylinder design for a lower center of gravity, while symmetrical all-wheel drive and a CVT gearbox (with paddle shift manual override) are standard on every model.

The most popular Legacy engine is a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder gas unit producing 175 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque. Flagship Limited models are also available with a more powerful 3.6-liter 6-cylinder gas powerplant, producing 256hp and 247 lb-ft of torque. The Legacy’s 2.5-liter engine returns 25 MPG city and 34 highway, while the flat-six 3.6-liter achieves 20 and 28 MPG respectively.

All four Legacy trim levels now incorporate the EyeSight range of driver assistance technologies as standard, which was previously a cost option. EyeSight includes adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking, and lane keeping assist with departure warning. Another recent upgrade involves the addition of a 5.0-inch instrument display, while Subaru’s Starlink 6.5-inch multimedia system is now standard.

2.5i

This is the entry-level model and starts at $23,055 (including $860 in destination charges). For that sum you get a 6.5-inch infotainment screen with a four-speaker audio system, LED running lights, a rear-view camera, 17-inch steel wheels with wheel covers, cruise control, and push-button start. The only available option is costs $350 and replaces the wheel covers with 17-inch alloys.The Legacy range starts from $23,430; all prices include destination and delivery, though there’s a $150 premium for buyers in Alaska. The base 2.5i offers impressive levels of equipment, with an eight-way adjustable driver’s seat and keyless entry. Driver aids include adaptive cruise control, a high-res rear camera and automatic lights and wipers.

Alloy wheels are a $350 option, and an auto-dimming internal mirror with compass costs $245 ($365 for a HomeLink model). Audiophiles may wish to spend $141 on a tweeter kit to upgrade the standard four-speaker stereo, and gadget fiends should note the $493 remote engine starter facility. Upgrading the shift knob to leather costs $109.95, while footwell illumination is $232.

Premium

For its $25,580 price, the 2.5i Premium incorporates plenty of additional features over the base Legacy. Aluminum wheels replace the 2.5i’s steel wheels, while leather adorns the steering wheel and shifter handle. The All-Weather package adds heated side mirrors, heated front seats and a windshield wiper de-icer. HomeLink and a compass are built into the auto-dimming rear view mirror, with the 8.0-inch voice-controlled Starlink system another notable upgrade.

A $2,595 options pack combines a moonroof and navigation system with four safety features – fog lights, turn signal mirrors, blind spot detection and rear cross traffic alert. Alternatively, it’s possible to add the four safety features for a relatively modest $850. The footwell illumination and remote starter functions are identically priced options on Premium Legacies.

Sport

The $27,680 Sport lives up to its name by riding on 18-inch black alloy wheels, distinguished by LED fog lights and several spoilers. The satin silver finish of the side mirrors is reprised across the interior, alongside gloss black accents. More significantly, there’s keyless access with push-button start, plus remote PIN-code access to certain vehicular functions.

A four-piece options pack retailing at $2,145 combines a moonroof and navigation system with reverse automatic braking and high beam assist. An approach light may be incorporated into the auto-dimming exterior mirror for $241.

Limited

There’s a substantial price jump to Limited, which is available with the 2.5i engine for $30,130, or with the 3.6R powerplant for $32,430. However, this is easily the most luxurious Legacy model, with perforated leather-trimmed upholstery and power adjustment for both front seats. Rear passengers gain heated seats, USB ports and their own air conditioning outlets; a 12-speaker Harman Kardon audio system is also fitted throughout the cabin.

The main option on Limited is a $2,150 options pack. This combines the moonroof and navigation system with reverse automatic braking, high beam assist and LED headlights which respond to steering inputs.

CarsDirect Tip

While the 3.6R’s additional power is very welcome, we’d suggest the 2.5i Premium with the navigation options pack will suit many buyers. Its All-Weather package is welcome in colder states, and leather finishes lend the cabin a premium aura.
