The 2021 Legacy is on sale now at Planet Subaru. Subaru published only a few changes from last year. Subaru introduced an all-new Legacy for the 2020 model year so Subaru won't make many revisions in this second model year.  Dimensions, sheet metal, and most specifications will be identical.

Changes:
  • Now standard on all trim levels, Steering Responsive LED headlights (low and high beam) for improved visibility when driving at night. The Steering Responsive Headlight system aims the headlight beams in the direction the vehicle is traveling on curved roads. 
  • In an effort to prevent child and/or pet entrapment, a Rear Seat Reminder is now standard on all Legacy and Outback trims. The system reminds the driver to check the rear seat area before exiting the vehicle.
  • Also new for the year, a standard Seat Belt Reminder detects passengers in the front and/or rear seating position and gives an audible and visual warning if their seatbelt has not been fastened.

Legacy through the years:

Introduced in 1990 as a small Japanese car, Legacy has grown in size and sophistication.  Through 2007, you could buy a Legacy sedan and a wagon, which got a little confusing since the more rugged Outback was also based on the Legacy platform.  (Making things even more confusing was the Outback Sedan, from 1997 through 2007).  Now, if you want a midsize sedan, you get the Legacy, and if you want a midsize wagon, you get the Outback. 


 
2020+
You would hardly know if from the sheetmetal, which bears similarities to the previous generation, but nearly every part on the car changed, including the chassis or "frame." Built on Subaru's Global Platform that now underpins most of its vehicles, this latest generation is much more crash-absortive and it rides like it's hewn from a single hunk of very strong metal. Infotainment screen goes big time and new features, such as Driver Focus, abound.
 



2015 through 2019
Fifth generation increases slightly in size and now offers most room in its midsize sedan class.  Upscale interior abounds with technology and infotainment functions.  Airbag count rises to eight with the addition of seat cushion airbags that deploy from the flat part of the seat to hold front occupants in place during an accident.


2010 through 2014





Sales skyrocketed with the introduction of a much larger Legacy, every bit as big as segment leaders Camry and Accord.  Continuously variable transmission debuts and fuel economy jumps.
  Eyesight appears in 2013. Optional six cylinder grows to 3.6 liters. 


2005 through 2009





Subaru refines this generation further, with better fuel economy, smoother ride, six airbags (including side curtains) and optional goodies such as navigation and a race-me-chase-me turbocharged engine. The Legacy Wagon sings its swan song in 2007, and thereafter Legacy becomes synonymous only with "Sedan."


2000 through 2004






Size remains the same, but Subaru irons out some goofy ergonomics from the last generation.  Larger 2.5 liter and side airbags become standard.  Styling and handling improve.


1995 through 1999







The second generation arrived with more interior room, and a more appealing exterior.  All wheel drive became standard in 1996. 


1990 through 1994





Introduced with a small 2.2 liter
engine, you could order your Legacy in your choice of front wheel drive or all wheel drive, sedan or wagon.  But every one came with a boxy exterior and motorized seatbelts!
