2018 Subaru Legacy Overview


The 2018 Subaru Legacy is an all-wheel drive midsize sedan. It competes with the Ford Fusion, Mazda6, and Honda Accord. This year, it has been given a minor exterior revision.

Five trims are available: the base 2.5i, 2.5i Premium, 2.5i Sport, 2.5i Limited, and 3.6R.

Compared to last year’s model, the Legacy has a more chiseled, sporty exterior appearance. The overall proportions are still similar, but Subaru added sharper angles to the redesigned headlights and lower fascia. The front hexagonal grille has been widened LED daytime running lights are now standard. HID headlights, power/heated side mirrors with turn signal indicators, and a dual pipe exhaust system are available.

Under the Hood
The Legacy 2.5i models are powered by a standard 175-hp, 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to a standard continuously variable transmission (CVT) and Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD). A more powerful 256-hp 3.6-liter 6-cylinder is available as well. Fuel economy for the Legacy 4-cylinder is an EPA-estimate 25/34 mpg city/highway. It lowers to a 20/28 mpg rating for the Legacy 6-cylinder.

Inside, the Legacy has a quieter cloth cabin with a 60/40 split-folding rear seat.
