2023 Subaru Legacy

The sophisticated sedan gets upgraded safety, updated technology, and new high-energy style with the 2023 Subaru Legacy. Enhanced EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology gives you extra standard protection, newly available wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration makes every trip more enjoyable, and the Legacy Sport now features a powerful 2.4-liter direct-injection turbocharged SUBARU BOXER® engine with 260 horsepower for even more thrills. Subaru engineers tested and tightened the Legacy Sport suspension for upgraded response and precision control you can feel in every corner. The 2023 Legacy is built to protect you and the ones you love with proven Subaru engineering and the advanced active safety features like standard EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology and the available DriverFocus® Distraction Mitigation System. 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 over 640 miles of total highway range – taking you farther on your daily adventures. The 2023 Legacy also gives you the all-weather confidence to tackle almost any road in almost any weather condition with standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and more standard all-weather capability than the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, or Hyundai Sonata. The spacious, sophisticated interior of the Legacy is updated for 2023 with even more comfort, convenience, and technology. A 12-way power front driver’s seat is available with a four-way power lumbar adjustment. For more enjoyable driving in cold weather, an available 360-degree heated steering wheel can warm up your hands. The 2023 Legacy gives every passenger their own comfortable space with up to 105.5 cubic feet of passenger room – more than Toyota Camry, Nissan Altima, or Hyundai Sonata. In back, rear-seat passengers can stretch out with 39.5 inches of rear legroom. The Touring XT interior features genuine Nappa leather upholstery, enveloping you and your passengers with soft, comfortable accommodations and rich, warm style. 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. One of the Legacy’s biggest advantages has always been its legendary Subaru reliability. But it’s not just a legend — 95% of Subaru Legacy vehicles sold in the last 10 years are still on the road today, more than Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, Nissan Altima or Kia K5.
