Peace of Mind on Every Drive

Crash Protection for Every Passenger

We designed the Legacy from the ground up to help keep you and your passengers safe. In addition to its industry-leading active safety technology, the 2021 Legacy features eight airbags, height-adjustable head restraints in every seating position, and a ring-shaped reinforcement frame as standard equipment to help provide all-around impact protection.

All-Around Awareness Technologies

The 2021 Legacy features an entire suite of available safety technologies to help protect you and your passengers. The Blind-Spot Detection system warns you with a visual indicator on each side mirror if it senses a vehicle in your blind spots. Rear Cross-Traffic Alert helps warn you of traffic approaching from the side as you back up, and a standard Rear-Vision Camera enhances visibility when reversing. With available Reverse Automatic Braking, your vehicle can even stop itself to help avoid objects behind you.

Advanced Capability and Technology


A STARLINK Multimedia system with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration comes standard on the 2021 Legacy. To make it even easier to select entertainment and view navigation, a high-resolution 11.6-inch touchscreen is also available. Wireless pairing and hands-free smartphone operation allow for safe and easy connection to your favorite apps and content, and you can access news, navigation, music, podcasts, and more through available cloud-based STARLINK apps and SiriusXM®.

Harman Kardon® Premium Audio

The Harman Kardon premium audio system captures detail-rich acoustics through enhanced sound control and superior high sound output. At the heart of the system lies a high-performance 8-channel class-D amplifier pumping out 576 equivalent watts of power. The amplifier works to efficiently distribute clean audio signals to the vehicle's 12-speaker sound system - including a dedicated center channel speaker and subwoofer. Harman's Clari-Fi™ Technology restores and corrects audio fidelity, resulting in musical reproduction that sounds clearer, crisper, and more dynamic.

Built for the Long Road Ahead


The standard direct-injection SUBARU BOXER engine provides 182 horsepower and features Auto Start-Stop Technology with a combined fuel economy of up to 35 MPG** highway. With an expansive 18.5-gallon fuel tank, this gives Legacy almost 650 miles of total highway range[13] - taking you farther on your daily adventures. A 260-horsepower direct-injection turbocharged SUBARU BOXER engine is also available, generating 277 pound-feet of torque and still reaching up to 32 MPG highway and nearly 600 miles of total highway range.

Standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive

The standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system in the 2022 Legacy is designed to optimize traction in snow, rain, and on bad roads. It constantly evaluates acceleration, braking, and cornering in real time to continuously deliver power to all four wheels. If a wheel slips, power is instantaneously transferred to the wheels that have the most grip.

2021 Subaru Legacy Engine and Drivetrain

First and foremost, we would be remiss not to mention Subaru's legendary symmetrical all-wheel-drive system. Since 1972, Subaru has been producing one of the most effective all-wheel-drive systems in the world. And all the hard work they put into the drivetrain can be seen and felt in the Subaru Legacy. Subaru's also have a unique engine layout that sets them apart. Instead of the four-cylinder engine having the cylinders go up and down in an inline pattern, they come in a flat, H-shape. Subaru calls it Boxer because the cylinders oppose each other, pumping side to side towards one another. The Legacy has two different engine options, the first of which is a 2.5L Boxer engine; this produces 182 horsepower, 176 lb-ft of torque and gets an average of 31 MPG. The second available engine is a turbocharged 2.4L Boxer. This kicks out an impressive 260 horsepower, 277 lb-ft of torque and still provides a generous combined average of 28 MPG. Both engines are connected to a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT).

What is Subaru EyeSight?
