2017 Subaru Legacy Overview:
Those of us who have to drive in all kinds of awful weather conditions tend to look for vehicles that have exemplary all-wheel drive performance. This is one facet that makes the 2017 Subaru Legacy a standout performer in its class. Regardless of where you live and how you drive, the Legacy has high safety ratings and plenty of nifty features that make it worth at least test-driving if you're in the market for a midsize sedan.

What's New For 2017?

Newly added to the EyeSight Driver Assist Technology package is a reverse automatic braking feature that adds a level of safety when backing up. Also, the Legacy Sport trim level is new for 2017. 

Available Styles

The 2017 Subaru Legacy is available as a four-door midsized sedan. All-wheel drive comes standard on all trims.

Available Trims

There are five different trim levels: the base 2.5i trim, the 2.5i Premium, 2.5i Limited, 2.5i Sport, and 3.6R Limited, which features an upgraded engine.

Driving Impressions

The 2017 Subaru Legacy comes standard with a 2.5-L, 4-cylinder engine that generates 175 hp. The 3.6R Limited comes with a 3.6-L, 6-cylinder engine that gets a decent 256 hp. However, the Legacy gets relatively poor acceleration, going from 0 to 60 mph in about 9.3 seconds. This is slower than most of the Legacy's competitors. The ride is a lot stiffer than most competitors in its class as well, making it one of the clunkier sedans available. If you want to get the smoothest ride from a Legacy, you will have to opt for the Limited trim, which has an upgraded suspension. Most trims give quite a bit of body roll, too. Despite its several performance issues, the Legacy handles extremely well in bad weather conditions due to its all-wheel drive. The CVT provides a nice pairing for both engine types.

Fuel Economy

Gas mileage on the Legacy is, for the most part, relatively decent. The Legacy trims with 2.5-L engines get about 29 combined mpg (with 25 city mpg/34 highway mpg). The 3.6R Limited gets a less-than-stellar 23 combined mpg (with 20 city mpg/28 highway mpg). The 3.6R Limited's engine is somewhat underpowered for its class and is going to be too gas-thirsty for drivers looking to get the most bang for their buck.


While the 2017 Subaru Legacy gets outperformed in terms of power, most trims offer decent fuel economy and stability on the road, especially for those who have to frequently drive in rough weather conditions.

How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Subaru Legacy

Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:

  • Example: Base Subaru Legacy invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of all the options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
  • What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.

Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here)

Note: All Subaru Legacy MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.

A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
