The Subaru Legacy provides the perfect vehicle for many styles of driving. Families will have enough space with 104.6 cubic feet of passenger room, and city drivers can find solace with loads of technology. What makes all this even better? A solid fuel economy.

Fred Beans Subaru has created this Subaru Legacy gas mileage guide, so you can discover what kind of efficiency you'll receive while behind the wheel. Will it be perfect for your commutes near the Doylestown, Philadelphia, and Warminster areas? Let's find out.

Subaru Legacy MPG

Out of the five trims of this SUV, you'll find two impressive EPA-estimated fuel economies. In the first four trims, you'll receive 34 miles per gallon in the city and 25 miles per gallon on the highway. This is great for city commutes, road trips, and transitioning between city streets and long stretches of highway roads.

In the final trim, the 3.6R Limited, the fuel economy slightly differs. Though a tad less than the standard models, it comes in at 28 miles per gallon in the city with a highway estimated miles per gallon of 20. Still quite impressive!

2019 Legacy Performance

Now that you know the exact mileage for the 2019 Legacy, it's important to know how such a solid fuel economy is possible, and it all starts with the performance.

The 2019 Legacy offers two configurations across its five trims. Standardly, you'll find the 2.5L 4-cylinder SUBARU BOXER® engine. This unique powertrain offers a low center of gravity, providing less drag while driving. Additionally, you'll receive 175 horsepower and 174 lb-ft of torque.

However, the Limited trim sports an elevated engine for more power, which is the reason for its decrease in efficiency. With 3.6 liters and 6 cylinders on your side, your horsepower jumps to a whopping 256 with a torque of 247 lb-ft.

Both these engines are melded to the Lineartronic® CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission), which plays a lot into the fuel economy as well. This drivetrain features Adaptive Control and a 6-speed manual mode, all of which aid to the Legacy's efficiency.

To add to the amazing ability of this vehicle, all Legacy models come standard with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, Active Torque Vectoring, and a Traction Control System. These keep you safer on the road, no matter the condition of the terrain.
