2020 Subaru legacy
After being completely redesigned, the 2020 Legacy remains recognizable and maintains a comfortable drive. If a family sedan is what you are looking for the Legacy should be on your list of cars to check out.
You will have plenty of trims to choose from with this 2020 Legacy. There are six total trims, including a base model that starts under $23,000 and the higher Touring XT model that starts just under $36,000. In between those two models are Legacy Premium, Legacy Sport, Legacy Limited, and Legacy Limited XT.
There really isn’t anything bad to say about the interior of this family sedan. The interior is attractive and upscale and there is plenty of passenger space. The cabin feels way bigger than the last generations, especially in the back. Until you reach the Limited and Touring models, you will have to be alright with cloth seats.
The trunk held eight carry-on cases, which is one and two more than the Accord and the Camry.
The non-turbo cars will get you 27 mpg city and 35 mpg highway. Not far behind are the turbocharged models, getting 24 city and 32 highway. All Legacy models have all-wheel drive and a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Regardless of which engine is under the hood, the new Legacy boasts slightly improved handling dynamics over the last generation and a similarly compliant ride.
Tech and Safety
Where do I start? You can have dual 7.0-inch displays that use Subaru’s Starlink system in the base models or an 11.6-inch vertically oriented display on the Premium model. Both are intuitive. Either way you go, you win. Standard are Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, while in-dash navigation is only standard on the Limited XT and Touring XT models and is optional on all but the base model.
This sedan is a great choice when it comes to safety. It was named Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave it five stars.
But we all want to know what features come with the vehicle, right? All Legacy models come with Subaru’s Eyesight suite of driver-assistance features. Key safety features include: standard automated emergency braking, standard lane-departure warning with lane-keeping assist, and standard adaptive cruise control with lane-centering capability.
There is no question that the Legacy should be on your list of sedans to test drive. For those of you who don’t want the outdoorsy look that you see a lot with Subaru, this is the answer. It is appealing on many levels.
