With standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and an outstanding reputation for safety, the Subaru Legacy stands apart from a crowded field of midsize sedans. The 2017 Legacy 2.5i Sport joins the current lineup of models, all featuring a highly appealing range of options. The 2017 Legacy adds a new model, the Legacy 2.5i Sport, which is based on the 2.5i Premium model. Reverse Automatic Braking (RAB) has been added to the available suite of Driver Assist Technologies. High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights are new to the 2.5i Limited EyeSight model. These features add more value to the appeal of the model line’s core attributes: up to 34 mpg EPA-estimated highway fuel economy, class-leading interior volume and the Core Technology features that help make a Subaru, a Subaru.

IIHS Safety Ratings

 To determine how well a vehicle protects its occupants in a crash, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) rates vehicles as Good, Acceptable, Marginal or Poor based on performance in moderate overlap and small overlap front tests, side test, roof-strength test, plus evaluations of seat/head restraints for protection against neck injuries in rear impacts and an evaluation of front crash prevention systems.
