2024 Subaru Legacy Interior, Colors, Specs – The 2024 Legacy lacks much of what makes a modern Subaru a modern Subaru, except standard all-wheel drive. A raised suspension is not open on the brand’s family cars. You won’t find any black plastic wheel-well cladding either. We’ll point you in the path of the Outback station wagon and the Forester SUV if you’re looking for those qualities.
The Legacy is created for customers who want the look of a traditional sedan on the road. The Subaru Legacy has a big cabin with plenty of safety and driver-assistance systems and a slew of connection options to go along with its traditional shape. However, even though it doesn’t have the space and functionality of its boxier siblings, it competes with the Honda Accord and Hyundai Sonata.
Subaru Legacy 2024 Redesign
The standard Subaru Legacy model includes steering-responsive LED lighting, 17-inch black machine-finish alloy wheels, and a single exhaust outlet. A power tilt/sliding glass moonroof, LED fog lights, 18-inch alloy wheels, and dual stainless steel exhaust outlets are available on the Legacy’s higher trim levels. The Sport trim comes with a trunk spoiler and its sporty grille, but these features don’t do much to spice up the appearance. The Legacy would blend into any parking lot, even crimson like our tester.
A couple of bright colors could have helped spice up the Legacy’s design. Still, the base model is limited to Abyss Blue Pearl, Crystal Black Silica, Ice Silver Metallic, Magnetite Gray Metallic, and Crystal White Pearl. Crimson Red Pearl and Brilliant Bronze Metallic are introduced as you go up to the Premium level. The rest of the collection tracks a similar color scheme, with some hues disappearing depending on the trim. The colors don’t change the fact that this is a rather dull sedan, but its simple nature may be appealing to some people.
The cabin is comfortable and justifies the car’s price. There is a lot of soft-touch plastic and weather upholstery for the higher trims inside. Cloth upholstery is used on the lower trims, while red contrast stitching is used on the sports trim to give it a sporty vibe.
Premium leather upholstery is standard on the Limited and Limited XT trims, while the top-of-the-line Nappa leather upholstery is standard on the Touring XT trim. The front seats are heated, cozy, and comfy, with plenty of headroom and legroom. The driver’s seat has power adjustment as an option on lesser trims, but it is standard on sport trims and higher. Even when fully loaded, the car feels comfy and spacious.
The Legacy’s base 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine will suffice. It has a Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission and produces 182 horsepower and 176 pound-feet of torque (CVT). Even though this transmission has an eight-speed manual option with paddles located on the steering wheel, it nevertheless has the rubbery feel of a CVT. The base engine is OK in town, but merging onto the highway at higher speeds will necessitate a big right foot.
The 2.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder machine produces 260 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque, and it also comes with a CVT transmission. It packs more punch, but it also sounds less strained than the 2.5L. There is some turbo lag, but the CVT shifts gears fast to compensate for the lack of responsiveness. Just don’t anticipate a lively ride, as the CVT’s ratio changes are smoother than a manual transmission.
