Unchanged from last year's update and retaining a clean, conservative, three-box look, the Legacy features Subaru's hexagonal corporate grille low on the fascia, flanked by headlights outlined with C-shaped "Konoji" LED daytime running lights. The rear fascia features large, horizontal taillights, and a bright-finished oval tailpipe integrated into the prominent lower valance.
Inside, the dashboard is dominated by a central touchscreen that's either 6.5 or 8.0 inches depending on the model. On all but the base model, Subaru uses contrast stitching on the seats, dashboard, and door panels. The seats are very comfortable with unusually long bottom cushions for all-day support. There's room in back for three adults with 38 inches of leg room for plenty of stretch-out space. The cabin is spacious for a mid-size sedan with 119.6 cubic feet of room – just shy of the EPA's definition of a full-size car of 120 cubic feet – while the trunk offers an additional 15 cubes of storage, which is also surprisingly roomy for a sedan with all-wheel drive.
The 2019 Legacy offers good visibility out the front, sides, and back. Instrumentation is clear and the app-based software is intuitive. Even at highway speeds, wind, road, and engine noise is commendably low.
However, the Legacy's conservative design doesn't impress like the Honda Accord, Ford Fusion, or Mazda6. The interior also falls short of these same competitors, while trunk space is only average for the class.
