2013 Subaru Legacy Review

(0 Stars)  More power and efficiency.

New For 2013
Subaru’s optional EyeSight is the biggest change for the 2013 Legacy. EyeSight is an active camera-based system that scans the area in front of the Legacy to let the car know if there are pedestrians in the path, a collision is imminent, or the car is about to depart its lane. The system can automatically apply the brakes in some situations if the driver does not respond to the initial audio warning.
Overview
All-new in 2010, the Subaru Legacy receives a pleasant refresh for 2013. Fuel economy is up to 32 mpg on the highway, thanks to a revised CVT and a slightly more efficient engine. Unfortunately, the turbocharged 2.5GT we enjoyed so much is cut from the 2013 roster, but the 3.6R models remain for those who favor acceleration over fuel saving. All Legacy sedans now feature a brake override system. Subaru’s optional camera-based EyeSight driver-assistance system adds a precollision braking system, pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning, and adaptive cruise control. Subaru has stiffened the Legacy’s chassis and suspension, which Subaru claims reduces body roll by 40 percent. Standard audio systems now feature Bluetooth connectivity and audio streaming in addition to iPod controls and a USB port; the optional navigation system now includes a 7.0-inch touch screen, voice control, a rearview camera, SiriusXM NavTraffic, and premium speakers. Limited models now feature a rear-seat air duct to help regulate cabin temperature. Overall, the Legacy competes well with better-known mid-size sedans such as the Honda Accord, the Volkswagen Passat, and the Toyota Camry. It’s worth a test drive, especially if all-wheel drive is on your wish list.
