2022 Subaru Legacy – Except for the all-wheel-drive standard, The 2022 Legacy is missing a lot of the features that make a modern Subaru an advanced Subaru. The family sedan of the brand is not equipped with an elevated suspension. Also, you won’t find any black wheel-well or cladding. If you’re searching for these options, we’ll direct your focus towards Outback’s Outback station wagon as well as the Forester SUV. The Legacy is ideal for those who like the look of a road vehicle and prefer the classic sedan design. In keeping with its classic design it Legacy has a roomy interior with plenty of safety and driver assistance features, in addition to numerous connectivity options. Its practicality isn’t as good as its more compact counterparts but it’s still competitive with other top-rated sedans like it’s a good match for the Honda Accord, the Hyundai Sonata as well as the Toyota Camry.
2022 Subaru Legacy New Design
The base version of the Legacy features regular 17-inch wheels until 2022 The the Sport and Premium trims now have air vents at the rear of the central console for passengers in the rear. The Sport is also now equipped with blind-spot monitoring, as well as automatic emergency braking in the rear.
We’d like to go for the turbocharged version with a more powerful engine however, it’s only available as Limited XT and Touring XT models. The mid-range Sport provides a more balanced quality-price ratio and features. It comes with 18-inch wheels as well as a sunroof with power, LED fog lamps, and a rear spoiler blind-spot monitoring keys with button-to-start as well as an auto-dimming mirror for the rearview that includes a compass, an automated rear emergency brake, and a cloth-covered upholstery featuring red stitching.
Engine, Transmission, and Performance
The 2.5-liter 4 cylinder horizontally opposed engine is standard and produces 182 horsepower. The Limited XT, as well as Touring XT models, come with a 260-hp engine that is a turbocharged 2.4-liter engine. All Legacy models feature all-wheel drive and a continually auto-shifting variable transmission (CVT). We’ve been testing both engines and we can tell what a difference a turbo can make. For instance, the Touring XT managed to hit 60 mph in 6.1 seconds, while the non-turbo Sports required an unimpressive 8.0 seconds. No matter which engine is in the engine The Legacy is a new model. Legacy offers slightly better handling and handling over the previous generation, and is a similarly smooth driving experience.
Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG
The non-turbo models have higher fuel-efficiency estimates from the EPA — 27 miles per gallon in the city, 35 mpg on the highway, and 30 mpg combined. However, turbocharged models aren’t too far from the mark at 24 mpg in the city 32 mpg highway with 27 and 28 mpg together. In our real-world 200 miles of highway test, both engines produced 34 mpg. This is just 1 milliliter less than the Accord 2.0T’s performance. But that these two models Subaru and Honda are not as impressive as those who drive the 2.5-liter-equipped Camry SE, which boasted a staggering 45 mpg. For more details on the efficiency of the Legacy’s engine go to the EPA’s website.
Interior, Comfort, and Cargo
Although the numbers might not be clear, however, the Legacy’s cabin is larger than the previous generation’s, especially in the rear. Although the design remains slightly dowdy The Legacy’s interior is well-designed and has well-chosen materials all over. The standard upholstery is cloth however the more expensive Limited or Touring variants come with leather. Seats in the front are constructed and comfortable, while the upper trims come with the option of a manual extension of the thigh for the driver’s chair that is an advantage for people who have long legs. The trunk is spacious and accommodated eight carry-on luggage during our tests that were higher than the Accord as well as two additional than Camry.
Infotainment and Connectivity
The base models are based on the Subaru Starlink infotainment technology that has two 7.0-inch displays. One-rung up Premium model comes with the modern 11.6-inch information display that is vertically oriented which appears as if was borrowed from a Volvo. Apple CarPlay along with Android Auto integration comes standard. While in-dash navigation is available only with those Limited XT and Touring XT models, it’s available on all other models, including the basic Legacy. A stereo with four speakers is standard. Premium, as well as Sport versions, feature an eight-speaker configuration, while everything above that is the Harman/Kardon 12-speaker audio system.
Safety and Driver-Assistance Features
A Legacy is an excellent option for security. All Legacy models are equipped with Subaru’s EyeSight suite of driver assistance features. For more details on the Legacy’s crash test results go to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites. The most important safety features are:
- Standard automatic emergency braking
- Standard lane-departure warning, with help to keep the lane
- The standard adaptive cruise control, with the ability to center the lane
