2019 Subaru Legacy Walk Around

Gazing at a Legacy isn’t likely to induce spasms of adoration. Design work qualifies as average, rather than special. In stark contrast to its Outback wagon sibling, the Legacy lacks discernible personality.

Perhaps the best that can be said is that’s inoffensive. Body lines are clean, but those who penned the Legacy don’t appear to have stretched the styling limits very far.

Helped by fancier wheels, Sport and Limited trim levels do seem almost upscale. Conversely, the base model’s 17-inch steel wheels exude a downscale vibe.


Roomy and comfortable, the Legacy cabin has ample space for five passengers. Considering its moderate price, the interior conveys an upscale feel.

Seats are helpfully supportive for long-distance journeys, courtesy of uncommonly long cushions. Except for the base model, each Legacy has a 10-way power driver’s seat. The power seat in Limited trim lacks height adjustment.

Rear-seat riders benefit from abundant stretch-out space. In addition, the Legacy is wide enough to accommodate three occupants in the 60/40-split back seat.

Dashboard design is convenient, if uninspired, shunning the angular look that many competitors have favored. A 6.5-inch touchscreen for infotainment is standard in the base model, but most versions use an 8.0-inch touchscreen, with available navigation.

Touchscreens sit high, with most controls grouped either below or to the left of the steering wheel. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard.

Most trim levels are upholstered in simple beige and gray cloth, but Sport models use mesh-like fabric. Contrasting stitching decorates the dashboards of all except the base model. Fabric upholstery has a good feel, but the leather employed in Limited versions isn’t especially soft.

All-wheel drive inevitably limits trunk space, but at 15 cubic feet, the Legacy’s luggage compartment ranks with Toyota’s Camry.
