Professional Review for the Subaru Legacy
Updated Style, Safety & Luxury: 2015 Subaru Legacy sedan
The Subaru Legacy has been completely re-designed for 2015 to deliver a more compelling blend of standout design, interior refinement, safety technology and higher fuel efficiency.
The Legacy now features the largest interior passenger volume in the midsize sedan segment. The 2015 Legacy continues the brand’s safety drive by introducing the latest version of the EyeSight system and a new available Rear Vehicle Detection System that includes Blind Spot Detection, Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
The new Legacy maintains a footprint similar to the model it replaces, yet offers increased interior room and trunk capacity. The 2015 model is the best-equipped Legacy ever, with all trim lines adding new standard amenities.
The new Subaru sedan echoes design themes introduced by the Legacy Concept at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show. The production model combines sporty form and efficient function. Key to the sleeker, coupe-like profile is a new front fascia that combines the hexagonal grille and bumper into one smooth piece. An aluminum hood reduces weight over the front wheels, enhancing steering response.
The Legacy’s windshield is more raked, pulled forward 2.0 in. at the base. The new windshield angle, higher seating hip points, new front partition windows and door-mounted side view mirrors help improve visibility. A 10-percent improvement in aerodynamic efficiency contributes to lower fuel consumption. The new Legacy 2.5i debuts a standard Active Grille Shutter system for 2015, which helps to improve fuel economy by reducing wind resistance when closed.
Offered in 2.5i, 2.5i Premium, 2.5i Limited and 3.6R Limited models, base power for the Legacy sedan is generated by a 2.5L horizontally opposed (BOXER) four-cylinder with the Active Valve Control System and joined to a Lineartronic CVT (continuously variable transmission) automatic with six-speed manual mode and paddle shift control switches. The 3.6R Limited is outfitted with a 3.6L horizontally opposed BOXER six-cylinder prime mover and mated to a high-torque version of the Lineartronic CVT (continuously variable transmission) automatic with six-speed manual mode and paddle shift control switches. Subaru’s vaunted Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system is standard. In addition, all models are equipped with Incline Start Assist and the electronic Hill Holder System that holds the vehicle in place until the driver applies the throttle.
Subaru extensively revised and retuned the Legacy’s MacPherson strut front suspension and double-wishbone rear suspension for greater handling agility and a more compliant ride. New quick-ratio electric power-assisted steering delivers outstanding feel and also helps reduce fuel consumption. The Legacy 2.5i is equipped with standard 17-inch wheels (alloy on Premium), and the Limited trims feature 18-in. alloy wheels.
Active Torque Vectoring, an enhancement of the Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) stability and traction control system, fosters more neutral cornering by applying brake pressure to the inside front wheel. The Legacy 2.5i now uses larger brakes previously available only on the six-cylinder model, and all models now have ventilated rear discs in place of solid discs used previously
With nearly the same exterior footprint as the previous Legacy, the 2015 model offers the largest cabin space in the midsize segment. The added space yields gains in shoulder, hip, elbow and leg room. The trunk has been slightly enlarged; a significant point considering that the standard Symmetrical AWD system requires packaging for the multilink rear suspension, a rear differential and drive axles.
Inside the passenger cabin, the driver faces a decidedly sporty instrument panel in the 2015 Legacy, highlighted by two binocular-style gauge pods with a center LCD information display -- 3.5-in. on cars without the EyeSight driver-assist system and 5-in. on EyeSight cars. In all models, an ECO gauge indicates and promotes fuel-efficient driving habits using color bars. The Premium and Limited-trims feature gauges with elegant blue ring illumination.
The heater control panel integrates the digital clock and outside air temperature displays, with the time automatically corrected by GPS in navigation-equipped models. A new one-touch lane changer function for the turn signals adds convenience.
Accentuating the increased cabin room, the new interior design highlights horizontal themes. A combination of new soft-touch materials, thicker cushioning for armrests and the center console and new trim styles give the Legacy a more premium feel. A standard 60/40 split fold-down rear seat expands carrying capacity.
The 2015 Legacy comes standard with a rear-view camera, now located closer to the center of the car for more natural imaging. For added nighttime security, the new standard Welcome Lighting automatically turns on cabin illumination and exterior lights as the driver approaches or departs the car.
