2022 Subaru Legacy
The 2022 Subaru Legacy proves that there's plenty more to the Canadian car market than generic family SUVs. Built to a classic sedan design, it offers a refreshing change for drivers looking to transport their families in comfort while also providing plenty of power under the hood. We now have this most desirable of Subaru cars available for test drive, and here are the key highlights we think you'll enjoy.
The Legacy grabs the attention from first glance onward, with its sleek but muscular design bringing the sedan format into the modern age. As you'd expect, the front grille and hood are lower and sleeker than any SUV, giving the Legacy a confident look that's reinforced by the swept-back curves of the roofline. All in all, if you're looking for a touch of coupe sports style in your daily drive, the 2022 Legacy makes an impressive choice.
All models of the 2022 Legacy are equipped with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) and symmetrical all-wheel drive as standard. However, there's a choice of two punchy engines available to complete the powertrain. As standard, there's a 2.5L four-cylinder model which makes a substantial 182 horsepower and 175lb-ft of torque, a more than healthy output for a sedan of the Legacy's size and weight.
But if you're looking for a little more zip, particularly for highway passing, then moving up to the 2.4L turbo mill pushes the output up to 260 horsepower and 277lb-ft. This configuration takes the Legacy into genuinely high-performance territory, with a 0-100kmh time rated at just 6.1 seconds.
Great Fuel Economy
But the Legacy's performance doesn't come at a high fuel cost. The advantages of the lighter-weight sedan format are clear from the base-level powertrain's figures of 8.7L / 100km in the city and 6.7L on the highway. However, even the turbo model's return is more than respectable with 9.8L and 7.4L for city and highway respectively.
The Legacy's interior offers a truly upscale experience, with standard features across the range including heated front seats, a powered driver's seat, and automatic climate control. Available options increase the luxury even further, with heated rear seats, ventilated front seats, and soft leather upholstery taking the Legacy to new levels of comfort.
Infotainment and Technology
The interior also benefits from some excellent infotainment technology, with the base model boasting dual 7" touchscreen displays fitted with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard. Higher trims replace the two smaller screens with a single 11.6" unit, while also adding in-built navigation, wireless charging, and a high-end 12-speaker audio system.
Active Safety and Driver Assist
Lastly, the Legacy is also equipped with a generous range of active safety systems, with highlights including forward collision warnings, automatic emergency braking, a driver alertness monitor, and steering-responsive headlights.
