Standard all-wheel drive and a roomy interior make the 2014 Subaru Legacy a respectable choice among midsize sedans, especially if you live in the Snow Belt. But some other competitors may turn out to be more desirable overall.

With their standard four-wheel drive, Subarus are a good choice for snowy consumers looking to beat the winter weather. However, not everyone wants to drive around in a practical looking car or crossover. That's why Subaru offers the Legacy, which offers that little bit of extra capability in the body of a traditional midsize sedan.

In previous years, the Subaru Legacy had real performance features, but lately the automaker has come to the conclusion that most of its customers aren't looking for back road thrills in a midsize sedan. The Legacy has thus become a reasonably priced family car. The cabin is comfortable, with ample head and legroom wherever you sit, and the overall level of wind and road noise is low when cruising on the motorway. Excellent visibility and the availability of some high-quality safety features are other strengths of the Legacy.

In some other respects, however, the Legacy is outclassed. Power and fuel economy are disappointing, both with the 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine and the 3.6-litre six-cylinder engine. The audio and navigation systems of the Legacy are also not very pleasant to use and the driving comfort is below par. Overall, we gave the 2014 Subaru Legacy a "C" rating and think you'll be happier with a few other top-rated sedans, like the 2014 Honda Accord or the 2014 Nissan Altima. If all-wheel drive is a must -have, the stylish 2014 Ford Fusion is worth a look, although AWD costs significantly more with the Ford. Ultimately, affordability is a big part of the 2014 Subaru Legacy's appeal. If all-wheel drive is a must, the Legacy is worth considering.

2014 Subaru Legacy 2.5i 0-60 Times, Top Speed, Specs, Quarter Mile & Wallpapers - MyCarSpecs Netherlands (4)

The 2014 Subaru Legacy is a five-passenger sedan offered in five trim levels: 2.5i, 2.5i Premium, 2.5i Sport, 2.5i Limited, and 3.6R Limited. The numbers refer to the cylinder capacity.

The sunroof and rear-view camera return to the options list on the 2.5i Limited model, which also returns to 17-inch wheels. However, the Limited builds on the features of the 2.5i Premium model, such as leather upholstery, a 4-way power passenger seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, rear seat vents, simulated wood interior trim and an upgraded instrument panel. and a nine-speaker Harman Kardon sound system. The options are the same as on the 2.5i Premium, except that you can purchase the EyeSight system in combination with the navigation system.

The 3.6R Limited's standard and optional equipment follow those of the 2.5i Limited, but the 3.6R has a six-cylinder engine and wider 17-inch tyres.

The four-wheel drive Subaru Legacy is offered with two engines: a 2.5-liter four-cylinder and a 3.6-liter six-cylinder. The base 2.5-liter horizontally opposed ("boxer") four-cylinder produces 173 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed manual transmission (including a hill hold feature) is standard on the base 2.5i, and a continuously variable transmission (CVT) with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters is optional. The Premium, Sport and Limited models get the CVT standard.

2014 Subaru Legacy 2.5i 0-60 Times, Top Speed, Specs, Quarter Mile & Wallpapers - MyCarSpecs Netherlands (12)

The EPA rates 2.5i models with the CVT at 27 mpg combined (24 city/32 highway), while the manual version is rated significantly lower at 24 mpg combined (21/29). Neither choice is a highlight when it comes to the fuel economy of the four cylinders. In performance testing, a Legacy 2.5i Sport went from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.6 seconds, which is about average for its class.

The Legacy 3.6R features a 3.6-liter six-cylinder boxer engine, producing 256 horsepower and 247 lb-ft of torque. A five-speed automatic with paddle shifters is the only transmission offered. In performance testing, the 3.6R accelerated from 0 to 60 in 7.1 seconds, a below-average time for the segment. The EPA estimates the 3.6R will deliver 20 mpg combined (18/25), well below the class average.

The 2014 Subaru Legacy comes standard with stability and traction control, anti-lock disc brakes, front side airbags and side curtain airbags. A reversing camera is optional.

Also optional is Subaru's EyeSight system, which combines adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking, lane departure warning and sway alert. The EyeSight system uses two cameras mounted in the top edge of the windshield, which Subaru says reduces the risk of damage compared to conventional radar systems mounted in the front bumper. EyeSight can also detect pedestrians and can brake the Legacy if the driver does not take evasive action.

During testing, the Legacy 3.6R stopped from 100 km/h in 30 metres, while the 2.5i Sport reached 125 metres. Both are average distances for the midsize sedan class.

The Legacy received the highest possible five-star crash test ratings in frontal, side and rollover tests from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In the testing of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the Legacy was rated "Good" (the highest possible) in the Moderate Overlap Frontal Offset Impact, Side Impact and Roof Strength tests. It was rated 'Acceptable' (second highest) in the small overlap frontal crash test. The seat and headrest design was rated "Good" for whiplash protection in rear impacts.

The 2014 Subaru Legacy's standard all-wheel drive system gives it plenty of capability in inclement weather. However, if you don't drive in snow very often, front-wheel drive competitors like the Altima and Accord make more sense as they deliver better fuel economy and better acceleration. The combination of CVT and 2.5 liter engine also makes for a striking motorcycle drone. The 3.6-litre six-cylinder provides quicker acceleration, but the lower gas mileage may be too much of a sacrifice for many buyers, especially as the performance of the six-cylinder is below average compared to the V6 and premium turbo engines in this class .

All-wheel drive is a clear advantage for the Legacy, as it increases traction on wet or snowy roads. There's quite a bit of body roll around corners, but overall the Legacy is a well-mannered sedan. The ride is on the busy side, sacrificing more comfort than some buyers will accept.

The interior design of the 2014 Subaru Legacy is simple and straightforward. Operation is simple in the lower grades but gets more complicated as you move up the ranks, and some plastics lack the premium feel found on competing models. The optional navigation system in particular isn't very user-friendly, as the menus are complicated and the virtual buttons on the touchscreen don't always respond.

Nevertheless, most buyers will find the 2.5i Premium trim level worth opting for, as it includes a six-speaker stereo and access to options such as a sunroof and rear-view camera. The base-model 2.5i's standard four-speaker stereo sounds tinny and flat.

The Legacy's seats are comfortable and the outward visibility from the driver's seat is excellent. There is also sufficient head and legroom in the front and rear seats. However, the trunk is not that spacious. The capacity of 14.7 cubic meters is slightly below average for this segment.

While the four-cylinder and six-cylinder engines in the 2014 Subaru Legacy offer different acceleration, the Legacy 2.5i and 3.6R share the same suspension, meaning handling and handling are fairly consistent regardless of model. We found the Legacy's ride to be exceptionally smooth and the cabin to be adequately quiet. The low center of gravity of the boxer engine in combination with the four-wheel drive ensures stable driving with a slightly sporty edge. The 173bhp from the 2.5-litre engine provides adequate, if unspectacular, acceleration and overtaking, though the optional CVT works better than most and features paddle shifters for manual gear changes. Fuel economy is actually a lot better with the CVT than with the manual, plus you get a more advanced AWD setup. The 3.6R is, as expected, better at displacing the Legacy, but with significantly better fuel economy (18/25 vs. 24/32).

SYMMETRICAL ALL-WHEEL DRIVEHow could the Legacy's favorite feature not be its highly capable Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive? For many owners, who live in places where winter can bring real weather, this will be the main reason they buy a Legacy in the first place. EYESIGHT DRIVER ASSIST SYSTEM Available on Limited and Premium trim levels, the Subaru EyeSight system includes Pre-Collision Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure and Sway Warning, and a pedestrian detection system.

The spacious interior of the 2014 Subaru Legacy is elegant in design and function. The front seats are extremely comfortable and, other than the base model, include some of the best lumbar support for the driver's seat we've tested. Front and rear legroom and headroom are excellent, and the split-fold rear seat increases cargo space from large to massive. The thick tilt/telescopic steering wheel includes audio and cruise controls, as well as Bluetooth. The gauges are stylish, legible and feature an on-board computer and fuel economy gauge; Limited editions have an electroluminescent cluster with a good temperature gauge.

Aside from the wheels, fog lights and, except on the base model, color-coded mirrors, there's little that differentiates the different trim levels of the 2014 Legacy. Unlike its Outback cousin, the Legacy sits low to the ground—a design that makes it look like any other family sedan, but also somewhat limits its ability to drive in deeper snow. However, features like the available windshield wiper defroster (included in the All-Weather package) reinforce the Legacy's reputation as a winter warrior.

Features of the 2014 Legacy 2.5i sedan include four-wheel drive, a six-speed manual transmission, 16-inch wheels, USB/iPod control, and Bluetooth phone connectivity and audio streaming. A 6-cylinder 3.6R version is similar, but with a 5-speed automatic transmission and 17-inch alloy wheels. 2.5i Premium models include CVT transmission, All-Weather package (heated front seats, heated side mirrors, wiper defroster), 10-way power driver seat, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and audio system with 4.3-inch touchscreen, six speakers and SiriusXM satellite radio. The 2.5i and 3.6R Limited trims add a power passenger seat, dual-zone climate control, leather seats, a premium 440-watt Harman/Kardon sound system, rear vents and an electroluminescent instrument panel with 3.5-inch LCD information please. display.

The Subaru Legacy options are clustered by trim levels. The base 2.5i only offers the CVT automatic transmission, while the Premium trim can be specified with the 440-watt Harman/Kardon audio system, electric moonroof and a rear-view camera package compatible with the audio system's display screen. Limited trims offer voice-activated navigation with a rear-view camera and a power moonroof. Both Limited and Premium trims are available with the EyeSight driver assistance system. Subaru dealers also offer a relatively wide range of accessories, including an auto-dimming rear-view mirror with HomeLink, a DVD rear seat entertainment system, a remote starter, all-weather floor mats, courtesy lights, and a roof rack system with numerous mounting options.

The Legacy's 2.5-liter boxer engine produces 173 horsepower, good low-end torque and relatively smooth and quiet operation. Matching this engine with the literally seamless CVT automatic delivers the best fuel economy (24/32 mpg city/highway), but the six-speed manual transmission is a better choice if saving money is a higher priority. The most refined engine choice for the Legacy is the 3.6-litre six-cylinder, which offers strong acceleration and passing power, but with slightly less fuel consumption. Manual transmission cars feature a viscous clutch center differential that distributes torque in a constant 50/50 split from front to rear. Legacys equipped with an automatic transmission use a more advanced electronic setup that, on the 3.6R, can even vary torque distribution as needed. EPA city/highway fuel economy: 21/28 mpg (manual), 24/32 mpg (automatic) 3.6-liter boxer-6,256 horsepower at 6,000 rpm 247 lb-ft of torque at 4,400 rpm EPA city/highway fuel economy: 18/ 25mpg

For 2014, Subaru has kept prices unchanged from 2013 for most versions of the Legacy. Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) starts around $21,000 for the 2.5i with manual transmission, while the Premium model is around $21,000. 2,600 to add. The 2.5 Limited starts under $27,000. The base 6-cylinder 3.6R has an MSRP of just over $26,000, rising to nearly $30,000 in Limited trim. Sliding between the Premium and Limited grades is the 2.5i Sport, which starts just north of $25,000. A comparably priced Honda Accord or Toyota Camry can't match the Legacy's standard content list, nor do they offer the option of all-wheel drive. Before you go to the dealer, check the Kelley Blue Book Fair purchase price, which shows what others in your area are paying for the 2014 Subaru Legacy. Over a five-year period, the Legacy is expected to maintain excellent resale values, with the 3.6R models will beat the 2.5i by a few percentage points.

Consumer Reviews of the 2014 Subaru Legacy

spraychicago, 10-25-2

2.5i Sport 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4-cylinder CVT)

great car!

I work for Pepsi and drive 500 Miles a week. I only fill up once a week. I drive between 450 and 480 miles before the gas light comes on. I see these reviews about the stiff ride, and I disagree. I think it drives nice and like any car should drive. I drive about a third city and the rest highway and get a true calculated average of 30 mpg almost every time. If it's half and half city and highway and is 29 mpg. I think the car is great and the mpg value is a bit underestimated by the factory. I would definitely test drive an Amd, see for yourself before these crappy comments decide for you. Very nice car.

2.5i Premium 4dr Sedan AWD (2,5L 4-cilinder CVT)

Excellent twist between a sports sedan and an everyday car

Just traded in from a 07 Nissan Versa so this is a whole new beast. Very spacious interior with stylish color coordination. The six-speed manual transmission is undoubtedly sporty, but feels somewhat disconnected and doesn't sit in the same way as most clutch systems I'm used to. I live in Colorado in the foothills of the Rockies and bought this car in the middle of winter and have had no problems with it even in the worst of conditions. Very passive handling on the road, so a smooth ride in that regard. That being said, it's mated to an award-winning AWD drivetrain, so it stays on the road with no problem. I am also 1.80 meters tall and this car still has room for me. Legroom has always been a make or break factor with me and when buying cars, so I'm glad I finally "fit in". The bumper in the model I have looks sporty and choice, but gives the car a very low headroom, so beware of the driver. I get about 23 mpg in the city on my daily commute. This is a good figure, but certainly not the optimal EPA estimate. Reading some of the other reviews I think there is one consistent problem with these cars - they use too much oil and coolant. Factory error probably, but still mine is currently being examined to make sure this is the case. If not , the warranty is extensive enough that I could just purchase a new one, no harm, no foul. Apart from this well designed and reliable car.

2.5i Premium PZEV 4dr Sedan AWD (2,5L 4-cilinder CVT)

Eat oil

I have driven 29,000 miles on my 2014 Subaru Legacy 2.5 and have had to add a full gallon of oil FIVE times and this does not include the 3 oil changes I have had as recommended by the dealer. Subaru believes this is within spec and refuses to acknowledge that a new car should not burn oil, especially at this high rate. The handsfree does not recognize what you say and is clumsy. The drive is stiff and noisy, the doors don't lock automatically so you have to remember, the heated seats go on and off, again Subaru says that's normal, my daughters Jetta's seats stay nice and warm. The AWD is great but other than that I'm not impressed, I'll trade it in as soon as I figure out what I want, I did a year of research before buying this. Will never buy another Subaru again, they refuse to stand behind their products and think it's okay to burn a gallon of oil between oil changes on a brand new car

2.5i Limited 4dr sedan AWD (2,5 liter 4-cilinder CVT)

114,000 miles - still going strong

I bought the Legacy Limited, leather and had some dealer options put on it. The car is fine so far. I have averaged 32.1 mpg and have had no issues. The defrosters quickly clean the windshield and windows. The controls are easy to use and anything more technically advanced was taught/demonstrated by the dealer, such as setting up my Bluetooth and phone. My kids think it's cool that my car rings and we can just talk without holding the phone. I tested the car with a decibel app and the interior is very quiet, ranging from 50-80 decibels, compared to well over 90 on my Pacifica Update: 65,000 miles and no mechanical issues at all. Just had a major service that cost $700 but everything was fine. I mainly drive on the highway and still have my original tires and brakes. These will be replaced this summer, but there is no abnormal wear. Handles the snow amazingly well, great mileage, very comfortable. No wind noise yet and all interior parts are in perfect condition. I had a friend buy a 2016 Legacy because she loved my car. I've had a few hiccups syncing my phone and car, but that's more user error and my phone than the Subaru. The bounce of the hood is still noticeable, and no, it's not a reflection bouncing. The metal bends back and forth, but I don't notice much anymore. I have not needed any warranty work but do have the extended to 100K. My son is looking forward to getting this car when he becomes a driver soon. Can't wait to get my next Subaru too! Update: 132,500 miles. Seatbelt and both headlights replaced. No mechanical issues, I still have the original tires and brakes - the dealer inspected both and they said I was still fine. MPG dropped to 29 mpg, but our speed limit went up to 70 mph, causing gas mileage to suffer. Small worn spot on the driver's seat where the leather seat and plastic seatbelt guide rub against my left hip. Still works strong - no complaints. The Subaru dealer near me is great and all the maintenance done there has been exceptional. Update: 114,000 (October 2018): No mechanical or electrical issues at all. I service the vehicle at the dealer every 7,500 miles for oil and tire changes, plus any recommended service. Next appointment I'll have the brakes replaced for the first time, but only because I'm at 185,000 km and haven't done it yet. The paint still shines and the leather holds up well, the car looks beautiful. Now I mainly drive highway miles and only occasionally have more than 1 other person in the car. The mileage is still good and all accessories work properly. No complaints so far. In a few years the kid will get the car and I will most likely get a new Subaru. Update 105,000 (April 2018): MPG still around 29 with 90% highway driving. Tires replaced with original ones because they lasted so long the first time (about 100k). The last time I went in and had the lube, oil, filter and rotation, they finally told me I might need brakes for the first time this summer! So far no interior noises or wind noise, very solidly built car. The only problem is that the fuel cap doesn't open very far. This has to do with 2 things: 1. the metal bracket on the inside needs to be bent out again and 2. the plastic band of the fuel cap sometimes gets caught behind the tab and the door will not open without someone else's help. Once I bent the tab and remembered to keep the plastic strap in place, I had no more problems. The boy is going to inherit this car in a few years, so he's helping me keep it clean and maintained.

2013 Subaru Legacy

"I love this car"

This car is great in the snow and great in the summer too. it still looks as good now as when i bought it. It is very comfortable and roomy for long journeys. I've never had any mechanical problems. I will never own anything but a Subaru for the rest of my life. I like my car.

2013 Subaru Legacy

"Definitely not a very good CVT transmission."

The car gets great gas mileage and the AWD is impeccable, but quality is lacking: the transmission failed at 91k and the engine was replaced at 98k due to excessive oil consumption. All under warranty, but I certainly question Subaru's overall quality control these days. They are no longer the bulletproof cars of ten years ago!

2012 Subaru Legacy

"Keep Me Safe"

A very reliable car. In my first accident I stayed safe and there was minor damage. The car is older but still very safe. It does great in harsh winters and snow.
