Subaru truly only came to be understood worldwide thanks generally to their efforts in the World Rally Champion back in the 90’s. Before then, they were simply another manufacturer that produced average cars that appeared to be a little ‘out there’ when compared to regular brands.
For anyone trying to find something a little various, Subaru are ideal up there and they make damn excellent cars; the efficiency and reliability are good, and now, they’ve even got the styling right. Perhaps the only concern that needs answering is whether you ‘d get on with the flat-four motor, which offers the Sub a really distinct sound, particularly when you’re making development.
After a refresh in 2018 gave the Subaru Legacy remodelled front and rear ends, updated interior materials, a 6.5-inch center touchscreen, and a more effective air-conditioning system, we expect this sedan to remain mostly the exact same in 2019.
As a carryover model, we anticipate the 2019 Legacy’s appearance to stay virtually the same from the 2018 refresh. Offered this look is still fairly fresh, this should not impact its position versus its competitors, however some purchasers may be growing restless for a complete redesign. For those awaiting the complete renovate, we could see it as early as the 2020 model year.
Inside, we expect the Legacy to continue with no changes. Like the exterior, the changes that came with the 2018 refresh should suffice to satisfy most buyers until the complete redesign.
As a carryover, we also expect the powertrain to stay the same. If this proves true, look for the 2019 Legacy to come with a basic 2.5-liter four-cylinder that produces 175 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque. We prepare for the optional engine staying a 3.6-liter six-cylinder system with 256 hp and 246 lb-ft of torque. Both engines will come paired with a constantly variable transmission and all-wheel drive.
Like many new Subaru models, the current Legacy is an IIHS Top Safety Pick+. We anticipate this to remain the exact same when the 2019 model debuts. One thing to keep in mind, however, you’ll have to select the EyeSight system to strike this rating.
There is no main release date for the 2019 Subaru Legacy, but when it does hit display rooms, we anticipate its pricing to be close to the present model, which ranges from $23,055 to $32,805 (destination costs consisted of). The 2019 Legacy’s competition will consist of the Honda Accord, Ford Fusion, and Toyota Camry.
