Suspension and Chassis
Combining years of rally racing experience
and the demands of daily real-world
driving, the Legacy 4-wheel independent
suspension has been tuned to maximize
the feel you have for the road. The double-
wishbone rear suspension absorbs the
worst of the bumps without unsettling the
rigid chassis. And, complemented with
MacPherson struts up front, it’s a tight, yet
supple ride that always leaves you in touch
and in control.
A wealth of ultra-smooth power at the ready.
That's the hallmark of the 3.6-liter 6-cylinder—
the largest SUBARU BOXER® engine available.
It produces 256 horsepower and 247 lb-ft of
torque, moving the Legacy 3.6R with effortless
confidence over the road. For smooth shifting
to match the delivery of power, it's paired with
the Lineartronic® CVT with paddle shifters.
Designed to get the most out of your
SUBARU BOXER® engine and Symmetrical
AWD, the efficient Lineartronic® Continuously
Variable Transmission keeps the engine in
its ideal power range to give the Legacy its
remarkable 36 highway MPG.1 Paddle shifters
with a 6-speed manual mode supply quick
access to power and torque on the fly, while
the Lineartronic® in the 3.6R also handles the
higher-torque output with less mechanical
noise for a smoother, quieter drive. Should the
weather turn rough, you can also count on its
standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive
for exceptional confidence and control.
