Reviewing the 2013 Subaru Legacy's Safety, Versatility and Refinement

Last updated 5 years ago

The seven-star Subaru badge may not be one of the most common on America’s highways, but that has not stopped Subaru’s engineers and designers from developing one of the most impressive entries in the competitive midsize sedan market. Learn more about the 2013 Subaru Legacy below:


Subaru’s standard symmetrical all-wheel drive system has always been a major draw for shoppers looking for affordable all-weather handling. Its symmetrical design and unique boxer engines provides a lower center of gravity and more stable handling. A handful of active safety features come packaged in Subaru’s “Eyesight” system, which adds a stereo camera with adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, and pre-collision warning and braking; this innovative system can even detect pedestrians and obstacles and automatically apply the brakes at speeds under 19 mph. The updated Legacy is also an IIHS Top Safety Pick.


The new Legacy has a more powerful and more efficient powertrain lineup than the previous model. Reviewers appreciate the comfortable design and high-quality materials of the front seats, while spacious dimensions and wood trim accents provide an understated luxury feel to the interior. The Legacy is one of the most fuel-efficient AWD sedans on the market. Shoppers can either opt for an economical 2.5-liter engine which returns 173 horsepower and 32 highway mpg, or more powerful a 3.6-liter six-cylinder that produces 256 horsepower and gets 25 mpg on the highway.


Standard Bluetooth, USB and auxiliary audio plugins, steering wheel-mounted stereo controls, and Subaru’s Hill Holder system—an electronic brake that automatically engages on slopes—provide a great value in any trim level. Shoppers can outfit this midsize sedan with several upscale features, including an in-dash navigation system, dual-zone climate control, and a premium nine-speaker Harman/Kardon audio system.
