2014 Subaru Legacy


The Subaru Legacy only gets a few minor changes for the 2014 model year. Most notably, the 3.6-liter V6 is now only available on the 3.6R trim level, and the 2.5i Premium gains standard heated seats and heated mirrors.  The optional navigation system also sees increased availability and can now be had on most trim levels.

The 2014 Subaru Legacy is available in several trim levels- 2.5i, 2.5i Premium, 2.5i Sport, 2.5i Limited, and a sporty 3.6R Limited trim level. Standard features include 16-inch steel wheels, auto on/off headlights, Bluetooth and a 4-speaker sound system with an iPod/USB user interface and an auxiliary input jack. Options include 17-inch alloy wheels and fog lamps.

The 2.5i Premium adds fog lamps, a windshield wiper de-icer, heated mirrors, heated front seats, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob and two additional speakers. Optional features include a sunroof, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a rearview camera, adaptive cruise control, a lane departure warning system, a collision warning system, navigation and 7-inch touchscreen display.  

Stepping up to the 2.5i Sport will get you 18-inch alloy wheels, carbon fiber interior trim accents, and most features from the 2.5i Premium options list like the sunroof, fog lamps, rearview camera, and auto-dimming rearview mirror.  It unfortunately is not eligible for the additional safety features from the 2.5i Premium. The navigation system is however optional.

The 2.5i Limited gets 17-inch alloy wheels and adds wood-grain interior accents, leather upholstery, a 4-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, dual-zone automatic climate control and a premium 9-speaker Harman Kardon sound system. The sunroof and rearview camera are not standard but are optional. This trim level is eligible for the additional safety features such as adaptive cruise control, a lane departure warning system, and a collision warning system. Navigation is also optional.

The sporty 3.6R Limited trim level gets features from the 2.5i Premium plus a 3.6-liter V6 engine.
