2017 Subaru Legacy coming to showrooms this summer

The revised 2017 Subaru Legacy will go on sale in Canada this summer with added driver-assist technology, more interior comfort and convenience, and a new trim introduced for the 2017 model year: 2.5i Sport with Technology Package.

Priced from $23,495, this AWD-equipped midsize sedan combines all the qualities consumers expect from the Subaru brand such as reliability, durability, top-notch safety, engaging drive characteristics, and excellent value.

The 2017 Subaru Legacy is available with the choice of two BOXER engines: a 2.5L 4-cylinder or a 3.6L 6-cylinder. The former is responsive and fuel-efficient, returning 7.0L/100km during highway driving and 9.3L/100km in city driving conditions in 2.5i models equipped with the optional Lineartronic CVT, while the latter 8.3L/100km on the highway and 11.9L/100km in city driving.

Touring models (both 2.5i and 3.6R) have received a new 7” AM/FM/CD/MP3/WMA audio system with high-resolution capacitive touchscreen display, STARLINK smartphone integration (including Aha radio), Siri Eyes Free compatible, dual USB port/iPod control, auxiliary audio input and SMS text messaging capability.

The 2.5i Limited and 3.6R Limited models now come standard with a heated steering wheel for comfortable driving even in extremely coldconditions.
