By way of commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Legacy sedan, Subaru is removing the wraps off of its brand new fifth-generation model this year. The carmaker has been known for its extreme design approach, as is true wit the long term modification the Impreza line has undergone.
However, the latest Legacy seems to be outside popular image of Subaru, although, again it might still divide opinions. It comes with an appealing price tag though. With beginning sticker price of $19,995 for the 2.5i, about $800 cheaper than the previous Legacy, the latest model provides better value for money due to a slightly bigger size and more regular highlights.
With the addition of a CVT, price is boosted by $1,000, and going up a step higher to the 2.5i Premium trim, the base price is now set to $20,995 when coming with a regular six-speed manual, although it also bring in a horde of elements above the 2.5i, which includes a driver seat with 10-way power adjustment, driver's power window, steering wheel wrapped in leather, instrument storage case with door, an overhead console with holder for sunglasses and surround lighting, a shiny exhaust tip, mirrors with body colors and 16 inch alloy wheels completing the feature lineup.
With the 2.5i Limited, the price tag goes up to $24,995 and comes with paddle shifters and a 6-speed manual shift mode, P215/50 R17 all-season tires, 17 inch alloys, perforated ivory and off-black leather-trimmed upholstery, four-way power font passenger seat, All-Weather Package and a Harman Kardon audio system are added to the 2.5i Premium feature lineup.
The sticker price further goes up with the 2.5 GT models and for the Premium and Limited beginning at $27,995 and $29,995, correspondingly. Going up further to the 3.6R models, which were created around the 3.6-liter boxer powerplant that succeeds the retiring 3.0-liter powerplant, sticker price is $24,995, a $1,600 price decrease from the preceding 3.0R, for the entry model, for the 3.6R Premium the tag is $25,995 and for the 3.6R Limited, it's $27,995.
The lineup of features looks like that of the 2.5i, although all 3.6R models come with a bit higher specifications, with 17 inch alloy wheels and paddle shifters as standard across the line. No details have yet been released concerning the retail availability of the car.
