2021 Subaru Legacy comes as a slightly redesigned model this time, but it is not enough to change the buyer’s feeling that they still have old-fashioned and a little boring design for this class. However, there are significant and efficient changes worthy of mentioning.
- The model is slightly upgraded in strength.
- There are exciting upgrades in the cabin.
- The design is a little boring.
- There is no significant technology in the cabin.
As one of the best changes in 2021 Subaru Legacy, we must mention the new Subaru Global Platform as much more rigid than the old platform they have used. However, it was not changed the appearance of the car nor its design. There are few small changes, though, like new front end and front fascia turned LED front lights and more full fenders.
It still looks like the Toyota Camry, but smoother and more gentle than before. New taillights on the rear end, along with the updated bumper, changes the design significantly. It should have a more squared-off look and completely new design of the lights and fenders.
Although there are no significant changes in the design of the cabin in 2021 Subaru Legacy, it is for sure that they will include new details in design and upgrades in technology. There should be offered new colors and maybe better-shaped air vents. However, do not worry about higher trims.
They will get leather on the seats, an 11-inch touchscreen, and 4G LTE Wi-Fi. To compete with the Nissan Altima, there is excellent sound protection in the cabin, with new weather stripping and sound-deadening glass. It should reduce noise in the cabin by 3 dB. It should be improved in years to come, though.
2021 Subaru Legacy Engine
When it comes to the driver in 2021 Subaru Legacy, it is for sure that the old 3.6-liter V6 in high XT trim goes to history. Instead of it, they will offer 2.4-liter and its 260 horsepower petrol engine. For the standard version, there is the same 2.5-liter flat four-cylinder model, but it will get seven horsepower more than before, so now it has 182 power.
All engines come with the CVT transmission in any option. The best in this model is the safety system and its safety package that was great last year, too, so the manufacturer has not changed it this time. Along with standard features, it includes automatic emergency braking, stiffer platform, and lane centering. It should help the model to compete with the Hyundai Sonata, at least in this term.
2021 Subaru Legacy Release Date and Price
The most significant changes are that the 2021 Subaru Legacy will be on the market in fall 2020. There are a lot of reasons for that, but most likely, they will follow their organization and business habits. When it comes to the price, it is in almost the same price range as before, meaning $23,000 to $39,000.
