It is hard to compete with the highest in the class like 2021 Subaru Legacy. Although it is not a top of the list of luxury cars, it is for sure that people love this car, and it has faithful owners. This time it could come with new engines, great design, and impressive cabin.
The most interesting could be the design of the cabin, along with the great details and highly modern technology in it. All the above comes for a more-or-less affordable price.
- The model is very modern and has soft edges and lines.
- There is an excellent equipment in the cabin.
- A hybrid model could support the engines.
- The cabin is a little tight for this class.
It is not the only redesigned model, 2021 Subaru Legacy has excellent improvements in suspension and rear end, which improves the speed and control during driving. Thanks to the front suspension, it could adapt to every type of terrain. A new double-fishbone layout with a subframe, cold springs, and a 19mm hollow stabilizer bar should provide better stability and drive.
The manufacturer has planned to offer 17-inches and 18-inches tires along with high-level dynamic performances performing better stability and comfort. When it comes to the design, Legacy is the same attractive vehicle with a long front end and a very sporty trunk door.
The cabin in 2021 Subaru Legacy is impressively designed to offer comfort but also safety driving. Thanks to the additions, you can enjoy smooth and very calm driving, with no sounds from outside. Even the glasses are highly protected from noise. We expect high design, which comes with this model, too.
Technology is among the best in class, including Wireless connection, USB ports, navigation, and a high-quality audio system. The base model has a small but functional 7-inch touchscreen, while the higher trims could get the 11-inch model. The manufacturer promises high-quality materials in the cabin, as well as great additions for the higher trims.
2021 Subaru Legacy Engine
2021 Subaru Legacy comes for the first time with a turbocharged engine. It should be a 2.4-liter turbocharged BOXER model with an amazing 260 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque. The speed of 60 mph increases for 6.1-seconds. The best, however, in this engine is fuel economy, which is surprisingly high for this size of the car.
As the manufacturer claim, it is 24/32 city/highway. However, its CVT hydraulic system surely helps in this low fuel consumption. Although this engine is amazingly powerful and economical, it does not mean that the manufacturer will drop the old versions because of it.
You can expect the 2.5-liter BOXER petrol engine that they introduced last year in Subaru Forester. Thanks to its 182 horsepower and 176 pound-feet of torque, it is more than attractive to buyers. The acceleration time is slightly higher, 8.4 seconds, but still very acceptable for the class.
2021 Subaru Legacy Release Date and Price
Although the lower price that could come to 2021 Subaru Legacy is around $22,000, you should expect a much higher number for this model. It would be hard to choose a base model with no additions and other equipment.
However, along with the whole line of models that the manufacturer is planning to offer, it could be an excellent addition to the luxury and sports class of cars. Expect the first models in salons in the middle of the year.
