The Subaru Legacy (BN/BS) is the sixth generation of the Legacy range of mid-size cars.

Summary[edit]

The sixth generation of the Subaru Legacy made its debut at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show, and went into production for the 2015 model year. The Legacy Touring wagon was dropped from the lineup worldwide only having the Outback as its wagon counterpart, especially in its home market in Japan.[citation needed]

Engines and drivetrain[edit]

A 2.5-liter flat-four FB25[1] and a 3.6-liter flat-six EZ36D are carried over from the fifth-generation model. Output is slightly increased on the four-cylinder model to 175 PS (129 kW; 173 bhp). The six-cylinder model remains unchanged from the 256 PS (188 kW; 252 bhp) 3.6 litre engine.

The Legacy still offers standard all-wheel drive and horizontally-opposed engine layouts, but discontinues the manual transmission for the US market in favor of the Lineartronic CVT on both engine configurations. The Canadian market offered the manual transmission for the 2.5i and 2.5i Touring trim levels until 2017.[2]

EyeSight[edit]

EyeSight is Subaru's active safety system. When turned on, it monitors the road through windshield-mounted cameras, and can react to driving conditions and possible collisions, even before the driver can. Models equipped with EyeSight earned the highest possible rating in the IIHS front crash safety test.

The Adaptive Cruise Control function senses the speed and pace of vehicles ahead of the vehicle, and can automatically adjust the cruise control accordingly. Pre-Collision Braking uses the cameras to monitor the activity of the vehicles in front of the vehicle, and alerts the driver visually and audibly. It can also apply the brakes, if the driver hasn't done so already. According to Subaru, EyeSight also monitors the vehicle's space in its lane. It will alert the driver if the vehicle has accidentally swayed too far to either side of the lane.

All of these features are available on the 2.5i Premium, 2.5i Limited, and 3.6R Limited models.[3]

Features and amenities[edit]

The Subaru Legacy comes in 5 trim levels: the base 2.5i, 2.5i Premium, 2.5i Sport, 2.5i Limited, and 3.6R Limited.[4] Below the detail is US model.

    • The only option for this trim is the Partial Zero Emissions Certification package.

  • The 3.6R Limited trim is comparably equipped to the 2.5i Limited trim.
    • With the addition of the 3.6 liter H-6, it has a high-torque CVT, and HID (Xenon) low-beam headlamps with Halogen multireflector high-beams.
