The standard direct-injection SUBARU BOXER engine is more powerful, more advanced, and more efficient as well. It provides 182 horsepower, and with new Auto Start-Stop Technology delivers improved combined fuel economy with up to 35 MPG highway. With an expansive 18.5 gallon fuel tank, this gives Legacy almost 650 miles of total highway range — taking you further on your daily adventures. A new 260-horsepower direct-injection turbocharged SUBARU BOXER engine is also available, generating 277 pound-feet of torque and still reaching up to 32 MPG highway and nearly 600 miles of total highway range.
Standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive is designed for optimal balance and an even distribution of power for maximum traction in almost any weather condition. It delivers better handling, improved efficiency, and a quicker response to changing road surfaces for confident control on every drive.
Every 2020 Legacy features LED headlights for a bright, clear view of the road ahead. And you can get a clearer look around every bend with available Steering Responsive Headlights, which actively track in the direction of a turn to enhance visibility. Standard High Beam Assist can automatically switch the headlights between the high and low settings when an oncoming vehicle is detected, enhancing safety for both you and other drivers on the road.
The 2020 Legacy is built on the Subaru Global Platform, using extensive high-strength steel for 70% more rigidity, long-lasting quality, and the quietest Legacy cabin yet. With great durability and vibration resistance, the Global Platform provides enhanced crash safety, better driving feel, and confidence for years to come.
The interior has been completely redesigned for extra comfort, style, and passenger space — making the 2020 Legacy the most comfortable ever. Plus, it’s the quietest cabin of any Legacy we’ve ever made. A 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat with two-position memory function and a new power passenger seat with height adjustment are available to ensure optimal comfort is just a touch away. Rear seat passengers get more space for comfort with 39.5 inches of rear legroom — more than Camry, Malibu, or Sonata.
The Touring XT steering wheel is heated for a warm, comfortable grip during winter driving.
The Touring XT interior features genuine Nappa leather upholstery, enveloping you and your passengers with soft, comfortable accommodations and warm, refined style
A suite of safety technologies is available on the 2020 Legacy to help protect you and your passengers. The Blind-Spot Detection system warns you with a visual indicator in each side mirror if it senses a vehicle in your blind spots. Rear Cross-Traffic Alert helps warn you of traffic approaching from the side as you are backing up. And with available Reverse Automatic Braking, your vehicle can even stop itself to help avoid objects behind you.
Whether you're on the road, at your computer, or on your mobile device, a subscription to STARLINK Safety and Security can help keep you and your Legacy safe. Advanced Automatic Collision Notification will alert an operator in the event of an accident. SOS Emergency Assistance can get you roadside help at the push of a button. Plus, there are convenience features to make driving even more enjoyable, like Remote Engine Start with Climate Control, accessible via your smartphone, customizable vehicle alerts, and STARLINK Concierge services.
New for the 2020 Legacy, the DriverFocus Distraction Mitigation System helps reduce distracted driving for both new and experienced drivers. Each day in the United States, more than 1,000 people are injured in crashes reported to have involved a distracted driver. Working with our award-winning EyeSight Driver Assist Technology, the new DriverFocus system is like having an attentive co-pilot along for the ride, available to give a helpful alert if a driver becomes distracted or drowsy. For added convenience, DriverFocus can also recognize up to five different drivers and remember their preferences, including seat position, climate settings, and outside mirror position.
