Subaru Legacy Specs

The Subaru Legacy is available with two efficient powertrains. Each one comes with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, so you'll be in for a safe drive with the same kind of traction you'd find in an SUV.

The first engine option is a 2.5L SUBARU BOXER® 4-cylinder that gets up 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque. It's designed to be efficient with a Dual Active Valve Control System (DAVCS) and works with a smart-shifting Lineartronic® CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission). As a result, the car can get an EPA-estimated 27 MPG city and 35 MPG highway.

The other powertrain is a 2.4L turbocharged SUBARU BOXER® 4-cylinder that delivers an exciting 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque. It also features a DAVCS design and works with a Lineartronic® CVT. These help the vehicle get an EPA-estimated 24 MPG city and 32 MPG highway.

Subaru Legacy Interior Dimensions

The 2020 Subaru Legacy has seating for up to five people inside a stylish interior. Both cloth and leather seats are available, as well as amenities such as heated and ventilated front seats, power-adjustable front seats, a power moonroof, and heated rear seats.

The cabin offers lots of room to stretch out with 105.5 cubic feet of passenger space. Up front, the driver and passenger can get comfortable with 39.4 inches of headroom and 42.8 inches of legroom. In the back, passengers will get to relax with 37.2 inches of headroom and 39.5 inches of legroom.

The second-row seats also offer easy access to the trunk. With standard 60/40-split flat-folding rear seatbacks, you can grab something quickly or load longer items. With the seats upright, you'll have a roomy 15.1 cubic feet of cargo room in the trunk.

Infotainment System

The dashboard of the 2020 Legacy is home to a user-friendly infotainment system. A pair of 7-inch screens comes standard while a larger 11.6-inch touchscreen is available. The latter looks like a sleek tablet and keeps you connected with Bluetooth® technology.

You'll be able to make hands-free calls, reply to text messages, and stream your favorite music and podcasts. Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ come standard, too, so you can access your smartphone apps while you drive.

To help you find the best route to your destination, you can get turn-by-turn directions through the Magellan® navigation system. You can also get information on things you'll encounter along the way, like gas prices and weather forecasts, through SiriusXM® All Access Radio and Travel Link®.
