The Legacy nameplate first hit the markets in 1989. The model has remained the flagship vehicle in the Japanese automaker’s lineup ever since.
Since its initial release, there have been a total of seven generations to be released. The most recent of these models was unveiled in 2020.
There has also been the Legacy Outback, which made its debut in 1996. This crossover SUV variant eventually became so beloved that Subaru decided to make it a model of its own. The Outback was then released in 2008.
There has been a wide number of trim options available for the later versions of the Legacy. These consist of the Base model, followed by the Premium, Sport, Limited, Limited XT, and Touring XT.
Of course, all of these Legacy versions have been fitted with Subaru’s iconic Boxer engines. These have ranged from a 2.0 L flat-4 through to a 3.6 L flat-4 offered since the release of the fifth-gen version in 2009. However, these have dropped in size to offer reduced emissions.
There have been a very limited number of diesel variants. These were first introduced in the fourth generation, which was released in 2008.
These engines have typically been mated with various automatic and manual transmissions. These have ranged from a 4-speed to a 6-speed. However, Subaru has moved more toward using CVTs exclusively for the model.
