Subaru revealed the latest version of the Legacy and Legacy Outback featuring new styling, new equipments and more power. Set for debut at the upcoming New York Auto Show, the new Legacy family build on the reputation of the old models as tough and versatile family cars that offer plenty of value for money.
Fitted as standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system, the new Legacy also benefits from numerous enhancements to the body structure, suspension, and steering to improve ride comfort and handling at the same time.
The new model can be had with either a 2.5-liter BOXER engine with 170 hp and 170 lb.-ft. mated to either a six-speed manual or a CVT gearbox, or a 256-horsepower 3.6-liter six-cylinder BOXER engine and five-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission. Subaru says the 2.5 liter engine is capable of up to 32mpg highway.
The new Legacy also comes with more features and equipments than ever. Standard features in the Legacy 2.5i include steering wheel cruise control and audio switches; a 60/40 split fold-down rear seat, electronic parking brake with Hill Holder System and an automatic headlight function. The standard audio system in the 2.5i model is upgraded for 2013 to now include Bluetooth hands-free phone capability and audio streaming, iPodcontrol capability, and a USB charging port. The system continues with an AM/FM stereo, single disc CD player, Radio Data Broadcast System (RDBS), 3.5mm aux. input jack, and four speakers.
The 2013 Legacy (and Outback) models debut Subaru’s new EyeSight driver-assist system, which integrates Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-Collision Braking and Vehicle Lane Departure Warning. That is something you don’t usually see in this segment.
