2020 Subaru Legacy

 

The 2020 Subaru Legacy is an exceptional midsize sedan. It has a roomy, comfortable interior, a new Starlink infotainment system with an enormous touchscreen, an available turbocharged four-cylinder engine, standard all-wheel drive, a suspension superbly calibrated to absorb road imperfections, excellent body roll control, an incredible ride, and minimal exterior noise even when traveling at high speeds. This makes the 2020 Legacy perfect for short trips and long journeys. It's top tier in ride comfort and the only vehicle in its class in which all-wheel drive comes standard.

The Exterior

At 190.6 inches in length with a 108.3-inch wheelbase, 72.4 inches wide, and 59.1 inches in height, the 2020 Subaru Legacy is built on a solid foundation. The exterior features a black front bumper, a medium-sized grille with a silver bar that has the Subaru emblem on it and active grille shutters. It also has angular LED steering-responsive headlights, and black power-folding heated side mirrors with integrated turn signals. There's body side molding, body-color door handles, front-hinged front and rear doors, chrome window trim, rear bumper applique, a single exhaust outlet, black 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels with a machine finish, and all-season tires. 

 A Comfortable, Roomy Interior

Slide inside the 2020 Subaru Legacy and it's obvious it's built for both comfort and convenience. Its manually adjustable front bucket seats are pillowy and well-cushioned and the bench seat in the rear is manually 60/40 split flat-folding. The seats have cloth upholstery and comfortable seating for 5. This sedan has 120.6 cubic feet of interior volume, 39.4 inches of front headroom, 42.8 inches of front legroom, 37.2 inches of rear headroom, and 39.5 inches of rear legroom. It has a trunk that's 15.1 cubic feet and lots of spaces to store small items. Plus, up front, there's a deep, open well and a two-tiered console box. 

Key Technology

Dependable, convenient technology is another reason the 2020 Subaru Legacy is a popular sedan. It includes keyless entry, push-button start, tilting, telescopic, leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls on it, electric power steering, a rear-view camera, and power door locks and windows. Plus, it has the high-tech Subaru Starlink multimedia system with a user-friendly, customizable dual 7" infotainment touchscreen or an available 11.6-inch touchscreen with physical volume and tuning knobs that are easy to use. It has AM/FM radio, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, satellite radio, Pandora, wireless Bluetooth hands-free smartphone connectivity, and apps with news, music, navigation, and podcasts. This sedan also has USB ports that have external media control and a Harman Kardon audio system with 4 to 12 speakers. 

Engine And Transmission

The standard engine on the 2020 Subaru legacy is a 182 horsepower, flat-four, 2.5-liter Boxer DOHC engine that generates 176 pound-feet of torque. People who purchase either the Limited or Touring models of the 2020 Legacy can opt to have a 260 horsepower, 2.4-liter turbo-four engine that produces 277 pound-feet of torque. Both these engines work together with a Lineartronic continuously variable automatic transmission that has a manual mode. Add Subaru's symmetrical all-wheel-drive system and you have a versatile vehicle that can make driving on and off-road easy, fun, and safe.

Safety Features

One of the things that makes the 2020 Subaru Legacy popular with families and people of all ages is all the safety features it has. Those features include electric power-assisted steering, 4-wheel independent suspension, 4-wheel disc ventilated brakes in the front and rear, brake assist, a brake override system, auto vehicle hold, and two-speed windshield wipers featuring mist feature and a variable-intermittent mode. Plus, the 2020 Subaru Legacy has dual front side-mounted airbags, head airbags in the front and rear, front passenger airbags, occupant sensing with deactivation, dusk sensing headlamps, and tire pressure monitoring.

EyeSight Safety Suite

The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration rated the 2020 Subaru Legacy highly and the Insurance Industry for Highway Safety named it a Top Safety Pick. Part of the reason for this is the effectiveness of the EyeSight Safety Suite. It includes both safety as well as driver assistance features. Adaptive cruise control, front collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert, lane keep assist, a lane-centering system, sway warning, pedestrian detection, rear cross-traffic alert, Pre and post-collision safety systems and blind-spot monitoring are just some of its features. Two of the optional features are a driver attention system which accesses driver fatigue and distractedness and adaptive headlights. 

Performance

Superior performance on-road and off-road is what puts the 2020 Subaru Legacy head and shoulders above the competition. Whether you want a vehicle to run errands around town or go on off-road adventures, the Legacy can make it fun. The 2020 Subaru Legacy equipped with the 2.5-liter flat-four engine has adequate power for anything you want to do. But if you want even more power, the turbocharged 2.4-liter engine can provide it. Plus, built on Subaru's new global platform with a soft suspension, the 2020 Legacy delivers a cushy, comfortable, road-trip-ready ride. Add Subaru's torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, Vehicle Dynamics Control, and Traction Control System and the 2020 Subaru Legacy is in a class by itself.

Exciting And Relaxing

Getting behind the wheel of the 2020 Subaru Legacy is both exciting and relaxing. With its off-road bona fides and symmetrical all-wheel drive, easy-to-control steering, the ability to navigate tight in-town traffic, high-speed highway traffic, and wet, snowy, and loose terrain, driving the 2020 Subaru Legacy is an exciting adventure. But with the Eyesight safety suite monitoring traffic movement, advanced adaptive cruise control, lane centering, and pre-collision braking in emergencies to help with steering, braking, and throttle control, driving becomes less stressful whether in tight city traffic or on long road trips.
