Engineered for greater performance

There were no stones unturned in the development of the current generation of Subaru Legacy. The Subaru Global Platform sets the stage for sharper handling and improved stability overall. The fully independent suspension system is tuned for better dynamic response. The SUBARU BOXER® engines are more advanced, more efficient and more fun. Now more than ever, the Legacy stands apart from the crowd, delivering unmatched levels of precision, all-road/all-weather capability and confidence-inspiring performance.

Higher-performing SUBARU BOXER® engines

The 2021 Subaru Legacy is available with the choice of two compelling SUBARU BOXER® engines. The direct-injection 2.5-litre 4-cylinder, which is linked to a Lineartronic® Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), is engineered to perfectly balance powerful response with outstanding fuel economy. The direct-injection turbocharged 2.4-litre 4-cylinder is connected to a high-torque CVT to create class-leading levels of performance. Both engines incorporate the latest weight-saving measures and advanced technologies to boost efficiency, improve acceleration and heighten driver engagement.

2021 Subaru Legacy Transmissions + Symmetrical AWD

Transmissions + Symmetrical AWD

The Subaru Legacy is available with two versions of the Lineartronic® CVT, one linked to the 2.5-litre 4-cylinder and the other paired with the turbocharged 2.4-litre 4-cylinder. These transmissions have been refined for greater efficiency, reduced noise and heightened driveability. Each drivetrain is fully integrated with the Subaru Symmetrical Full-Time AWD system to create unsurpassed levels of control and confidence under all possible conditions. These drivetrains give the Legacy the superior performance of a full-time AWD vehicle with the fuel-efficiency of a front-wheel drive vehicle.

A dynamic chassis of strength and performance

Built on the Subaru Global Platform, the chassis is characterized by greater strength, reduced noise, reduced harshness and heightened safety overall. The use of more high-tensile steel in key areas has created greater torsional stiffness compared to the previous version. These measures allow the responsive suspension system to create even better handling properties, including less body roll, crisper response and higher levels of confidence-inspiring control.

2021 Subaru Legacy Super-strong Chassis, Dynamic Payback

Front Suspension

The renown MacPherson® front strut-type suspension system gives the 2021 Subaru Legacy better dynamic response overall. The addition of a k-shaped cross-member brace—a design usually only found on Formula One cars and high-performance sports cars—helps create a greater connection to the road. This splendid front suspension design, combined with the wide track and low centre of gravity, give the Legacy crisp steering, remarkable handling and a surprisingly composed ride on all types of surfaces

Rear Suspension

The double-wishbone rear suspension is engineered to reduce noise and vibration, while increasing stability and control. The rear stabilizer bar is mounted directly to the body of the Legacy instead of through rubber bushings, which slashes body roll by 50%. The entire system provides more rigidity, which produces a comfortable ride that absorbs imperfections in the road easily, yet still creates a genuinely sporty edge. This suspension system maintains its compact design, so it doesn’t encroach into the cargo area.
