2016 Subaru Legacy Walk Around

The Subaru Legacy cuts a pleasing profile, with a fast windshield and slightly sculpted fenders. A six-sided grille contains the Subaru insignia. All told, the Legacy manages to look aerodynamic, even rakish by Subaru standards.

The Legacy measures 188.8 inches long on a 108.3-inch wheelbase.

Interior

Clean and refined, the Legacy interior is more conservative in nature than some. It’s space-efficient for five and features better-quality materials than past models. Upper trim levels get a band of metallic or woodgrain trim.

Legroom is notably greater than in the past, and Legacy feels wider, due in part to seat positioning. Seats are a bit short on side bolstering.

Unlike a lot of vehicles, three-across seating in the back shouldn’t be a problem, at least for shorter jaunts. Rear seatbacks are 60/40-split folding, revealing the 15 cubic-foot trunk.

Instruments are blue-lit, and a small LCD display sits between the dials. Vents sit high on the dashboard, allowing for a touch-screen interface above a panel of metallic plastic controls.

The infotainment system includes a 6.2-inch (or larger) touch-screen with large icons, incorporating swipe and tap-gesture control. New for 2016 are Starlink Safety and Security suites, with services that include emergency and roadside assistance, vehicle-location, and remote lock/unlock.
