Legacy 2.5i
Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle- PZEV


Subaru of America, Inc. has introduced the all-new 2010 Legacy® sedan, providing a bolder design  language in a larger midsize package. The 2010 Legacy, whose predecessor is renowned for its sporty handling and reliability, now features a longer wheelbase and nearly four inches of additional rear seat legroom.  A new powertrain lineup features the new Subaru Lineartronic CVT (continuously variable transmission), a new 6-speed manual transmission, a new, larger 6-cylinder Boxer engine and a new 265-hp turbocharged 4-cylinder Boxer engine.

The 2010 Legacy is built on a new platform that increases room and comfort while preserving the agility and fun-to-drive spirit of the previous model. New powertrains and new suspension design combine with proven Subaru safety technology to deliver a unique offering in the midsize segment. As are all Subaru models, every Legacy is equipped as standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, an invaluable performance- and safety-enhancing system that sets Legacy apart among midsize sedans.  All-wheel drive is rare in the midsize segment, and only Legacy makes it standard on all models and trim lines.

Must-Know Facts

  • Roomiest Legacy ever with new level of comfort, quiet and refinement.
  • Bold new design stands apart from mainstream midsize sedans.
  • Pricing comparable to front-wheel drive midsize competitors and is lower than 2009 models.
  • New 6-speed manual and CVT transmissions for Legacy 2.5i models.
  • 2.5GT models gain 265-hp turbo engine and 6-speed manual transmission.
  • New Legacy 3.6R models featuring more powerful 6-cylinder engine.

The Legacy line for 2010 offers three levels of performance. The Legacy 2.5i line -- 2.5i, 2.5i Premium and 2.5i Limited -- is powered by a revised 170-hp 2.5-liter 4-cylinder Boxer engine (with available PZEV rating) and equipped with a new standard 6-speed manual transmission or the new Lineartronic CVT. Both transmissions help to improve acceleration, response and fuel economy.

The Legacy 2.5GT makes a leap in performance for 2010. Available in Premium and Limited trim, the 2.5GT is powered by a new 265-hp turbocharged / intercooled Boxer engine. The new engine features a unique turbocharger mounted below the engine. This new location contributes to smooth turbocharger response and improved emissions. In the Legacy 2.5GT, this high-performance engine is teamed with a new 6-speed manual transmission. Designed for the discerning enthusiast, the Legacy 2.5GT is equipped to challenge some of the best names in the sport sedan field.

The new Legacy 3.6R -- available in 3.6R, Premium and Limited trim - offers a sophisticated blend of performance and comfort. Powered by a new 256-hp 3.6-liter 6-cylinder Boxer engine, the 3.6R is exclusively equipped with a 5-speed electronic automatic transmission. Compared to the 3.0-liter 6-cylinder engine it replaces, the more powerful 3.6 has a similar external size and recommends regular-grade fuel, rather than premium as Subaru recommended to achieve rated output figures in the 3.0. 

Reflecting Subaru's focus on value, the 2010 Legacy is priced close to its front-wheel drive competitors.  An MSRP of $19,995 for the 2010 Legacy 2.5i is an $800 reduction from the 2009 model and makes it the most affordable midsize all-wheel drive car available in America. An MSRP of $24,995 for the 2010 Legacy 3.6R represents a $1,600 reduction from the 2009 3.0R model and makes it the most affordable 6-cylinder all-wheel drive car in America. (MSRP's do not include $695 destination charge for 48 contiguous states.)

Bold Design Statement in the Midsize Arena

The 2010 Legacy, while rivaling midsize segment leaders in roominess, stands apart with a bold,  high-tech look. The Subaru badge is the focal point of the new grille, which features a squared off lower edge. Character lines arc from the grille and form power bulges on the hood, tapering off into the A-pillar. The coupe-like silhouette incorporates a larger greenhouse, and the powerful wheel arches and a shorter deck give the vehicle a sporty look.

Besting Midsize Benchmarks

Built on an all-new platform, the 2010 Legacy offers roominess comparable to mainstream midsize sedans, with a focus on usable space and long-distance driving comfort. The wheelbase grows to 108.3-in., a 3.2-in. increase over the previous Legacy. The 2010 Legacy provides nearly four inches of additional rear legroom, which is enhanced by the scalloped back design of the new front seats.
The new Legacy is 3.2-in. higher and 3.6-in. wider than the previous model, yielding significant gains in head, shoulder and hip room. The 2010 Legacy offers more total passenger room (103 cu. ft.) than many of its competitors, along with one of the largest trunks (14.7 cu. ft.) in the segment. The roomy trunk is a significant achievement considering that the Legacy's AWD requires packaging a rear differential and drive axles. Overall vehicle length is up by just 1.4-in. (now 186.4 in.), but overhang dimensions are reduced compared with the previous model.

The 2010 Legacy interior is not only more spacious than before, but takes another step up in refinement from an already-praised design. The sporty four-dial instrument panel is augmented in all Legacy models by a multi-information display with trip computer located in the center of the dashboard. Richer looking appointments and details abound, including a sporty 3-spoke steering wheel (leather-wrapped in all but the base 2.5i and 3.6R). A new electronic parking brake - with an electronic Hill Holder System -- eliminates the traditional parking brake handle, freeing up space in the center console. 

New Level of Comfort and Convenience in All Models

Standard comfort and available amenities are increased across the Legacy line for 2010. The base 2.5i, for example, features standard steering wheel cruise control buttons, a 60/40 split fold-down rear seat, new electronic parking brake, automatic light function, overhead console with holder for sunglasses, and a 3.5mm auxiliary audio jack. The all-new electronic Hill Holder System holds the vehicle in place until the driver applies the throttle to pull away from a stop.

Legacy Premium models add more amenities, including a 10-way power driver's seat (with power lumbar support adjustment) and driver's auto up/down window, leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio switches, instrument storage bin with door, ambient light for overhead console, chrome exhaust tip, body-colored mirrors and 16-in. alloy wheels (all 3.6R trim lines have 17-in. alloy wheels as standard). The Premium models also offer additional comfort and convenience options, including a 440-Watt harman-kardon® audio system, a power moonroof, and the All-Weather Package that adds heated front seats and mirrors and a windshield wiper de-icer.  

The Legacy Limited models feature standard leather upholstery, dual zone automatic climate control, harman-kardon® audio system, and a 4-way power front passenger seat. The Limited models also exclusively offer an available voice-activated GPS navigation system with an 8-in. LCD display and rear-view backup camera, hands-free Bluetooth® connectivity and streaming Bluetooth audio.
