2015 Subaru Legacy – A Canadian-worthy choice for a midsize sedan

Mierins Automotive Group | Published on November 19 2014

Revamped for the 2015 model year, the new Subaru Legacy midsize sedan is bound to attract consumer attention with its appealing design, fresh interior style, new technology, and improved fuel efficiency.

Its roomy cabin, excellent outward visibility, and standard all-wheel drive system also make for a great everyday commute.

When in need of a midsize sedan to get you through the winter snow and slush, the 2015 Subaru Legacy is a solid choice. The vehicle is equipped with Subaru’s AWD system – one of the best in the industry, and it makes winter driving more fun than stressful. The vehicle also offers excellent outward visibility, as do most Subaru models, and a spacious cabin, so that you have ample room to be comfortable when stuck in traffic on your drive to or from work. Fresh new looks and improved fuel efficiency should also help to seal the deal.

The 2015 Subaru Legacy 2.5i trims come equipped with a 2.5-litre 4-cylinder boxter engine, capable of producing 175 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque. The engine can be paired to a 6-speed manual transmission, or an optional Continuously Variable (automatic) Transmission with paddle shifters. Fuel economy ratings for the 2.5i trims are 9.0/6.5 litres per 100 kilometres (city/highway).

Consumers intrigued by the new 2015 Legacy but wanting a more powerful version of it, can opt for the 3.6R models, which come equipped with a 3.6-litre 6-cylinder boxter engine that will deliver a total 256 hp and 247 lb-ft of torque. This version is coupled to a high-torque CVT. The fuel consumption rating for the 3.6R trims are 11.9 and 8.2 L/100km (city/highway respectively).

When driving the new 2015 Subaru Legacy, buyers may note that it is overall smoother, quieter, and more comfortable than its predecessor. Acceleration should prove satisfactory regardless of the engine choice, although the 6-cylinder clearly delivers more punch, and the CVT feels a bit like a traditional automatic transmission – something buyers will surely appreciate.

As for safety, the 2015 Legacy has garnered the TOP SAFETY PICK+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, and comes equipped with a rearview camera, traction and vehicle dynamics control, among several other elements.

Subaru’s EyeSight driver-assist systems, offered on the top 3.6R trim, is worth considering, as it includes pre-collision braking, pre-collision brake assist, pre-collision throttle management, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and lane sway warning alert for enhanced safety.

There are also a range of other features worth opting for when concerning comfort, convenience and entertainment elements. An audio system that includes MP3 and AHA radio with a 6.2-inch touch-screen display is standard, along with satellite radio, a 10-way power adjustable driver’s seat, and heated front seats. Heated rear seats, driver’s seat memory, leather seating surfaces, and a multimedia system with voice-activated navigation and a 7-inch touch screen are available, depending on the model.

When looking for a midsize sedan, the 2015 Subaru Legacy merits some serious consideration. Available from $23,495 MSRP at Ogilvie Subaru, consumers can enjoy a comfortable and roomy cabin that provides excellent outward visibility and good engine power. Enhanced fuel efficiency for 2015, and standard all-wheel drive will make your daily commutes in the snow that much more pleasant too.
