Since 1989 Subaru has been producing the Legacy, and throughout those years it has remained a trusted car that drivers have come to depend on to provide them a safe, comfortable ride at a price more accommodating to the budget of all.
The new 2014 Legacy comes in five trims: 2.5i, 2.5i Premium, 2.5i Sport, 2.5i Limited, and the 3.6R Limited. The 2014 Legacy offers plenty of exciting standard features including heated seats, heated mirrors, dual-zone automatic climate control, 16-inch wheels, and tons more.
Manual transmission comes standard in the 2014 Legacy, but an optional upgrade to the automatic is available. There are also numerous other optional upgrades you can add to your Legacy driving experience, including Sirius satellite radio, rear seat entertainment system, body side molding, and a fog light upgrade. Of course a navigation system is also an available option that comes with the new Legacy models.
Drivers who choose to purchase a Legacy are given the convenience of an SUV in a smaller, more compatible midsize sedan that is great for driving in all weather conditions. The Legacy offers roomy interior so all passengers are comfortable and content for short and long drives alike. The vehicle offers amazing handling and powerful performance in addition. This is pretty spectacular considering its small engine size.
Seating for five is available in the Legacy. To truly personalize their vehicle, drivers are given their choice of seven exterior colors, including: Venetian Red Pearl, Ice Silver Metallic, and Caramel Bronze Pearl. For the interior Ivory Striated Cloth and Black Striated Cloth are available, depending upon the chosen exterior color.
The 2014 Legacy is rated #16 in Affordable Midsize Cars by US News, and also earned a 7.8 out of 10 on the scorecard. This scorecard compared features such as safety, design and performance to earn this score.
