2018 Subaru Legacy Review

If you live in Doylestown or Philadelphia, you may be searching far and wide to find a sedan that meets all the needs on your new car wish list. That is, until the release of the 2018 Subaru Legacy. This vehicle fuses comfort with unbeatable safety and weather adaptability, making it the ultimate triple threat to its competitors.

The Fred Beans Subaru team has compiled the following information into an easy-to-read vehicle review to assist you in your decision to choose your next vehicle. We'll start off with one of the most important things to consider when buying any car-safety.

Subaru Legacy Safety

 The 2018 Subaru Legacy has not yet gone through the whole battery of government administered crash safety performance tests and, as a result, has not yet been given a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. However, it has already scored a 5-Star Safety Rating in both the side crash category and the rollover category. These ratings can be attributed to the outstanding safety features that the Subaru Legacy is equipped with.

The entry-level Legacy is equipped with a rear-vision camera and reverse automatic braking. The rear-vision camera is not only helpful when simply backing up, but it also displays guide lines that assist you in tasks like parallel parking, as well. Should one of these instances of backing up go awry, the reverse automatic braking technology will stop the vehicle for you in order to avoid colliding with objects, people, or other vehicles.

Among other optional available safety features, a few of the most commendable is the Subaru Legacy's EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, blind spot detection, and Subaru STARLINK™ safety and security. EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology is an assembly of safety features that act as a hypothetical additional set of eyes on the road. It monitors your safety by doing things like warning you when you drift out of your lane, or automatically applying the brakes in their entirety in the event of an emergency.

Performance Specifications

With all types of safety features available for the 2018 Subaru Legacy, it's no surprise that it nearly outperforms every other sedan currently on the market. The starting trim comes equipped with a 2.5L Subaru BOXER® engine that produces 175 horsepower and achieves an EPA-estimated 34 city/25 highway MPG, thanks to the continuously variable transmission with 6-speed manual mode and paddle shifters.

One of the most exciting parts of this new model is its standard all-wheel drivetrain. The Subaru Legacy's Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system was designed with extreme weather in mind. Intended to simultaneously optimize traction as well as balance, this system works hard to keep weight evenly distributed on both sides of the vehicle to enhance performance and control.

2018 Subaru Legacy Technology Features

 In addition to features fitted for convenience like Bluetooth® capability and audio controls fitted right into the steering wheel, the 2018 Subaru Legacy comes standard with a Subaru STARLINK™ Multimedia system. This system is not only compatible with smartphones using Apple CaryPlay™ and Android Auto™, but it comes with its own apps for Pandora®, iHeartRadio®, and SiriusXM® so that you're always able to access your music, podcasts, audiobooks, and even world news.

Other features that come standard with the 2018 Subaru Legacy are two-position memory seating in the driver's seat, and rear seat USB ports. These features help you cater to more than just one sole driver. Having multiple memory seating settings allows for share-ability while USB ports for the backseat ensure everyone's devices are charged up while on the go.
