2018 Subaru Legacy

 

Introduction

If room is what you want, the 2018 Legacy caters to your needs. As the most comfortable mid-size sedan sold today, the 2.5i model has a 175-hp 2.5-liter 4-cylinder BOXER engine and the Legacy 3.6R Limited features a 3.6-liter 256-hp 6-cylinder BOXER engine. The 2.5i is available in standard, Premium, and Sport trims, while the Limited trim is available with the 2.5i or 3.6R engine. No matter the option you like most, you'll get Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and Active Torque Vectoring standard. The Legacy is the only sedan of its kind to offer all-wheel drive.

Safety has always been a top priority in the Legacy, but the 2018 model goes even further and includes new features that ensure safety and peace of mind, including many driver-assist features like Steering Responsive Headlights. EyeSight Driver Assist Technology is another great feature updated for the 2018 model.

The 2018 Subaru Legacy is available for sale in Lee's Summit at Lee's Summit Subaru.

Sporty Design

Looking for an elegant yet sporty mid-size sedan? There is such a thing - the 2018 Subaru Legacy. This car will meet both of those needs. It has a redesigned bumper that complements the wider, lower grille openings. The headlights are C-shaped and there are new horizontal lines from the grille. The new design of the headlights features daytime LED lights.

Other new components include a new tailpipe design added into the lower fascia for the finishing touch to the car, as well as LED fog lights. The Subaru Legacy's new design that entails luxury includes new wheel designs and two new exterior colors: Crimson Red Pearl and Magnetite Gray Metallic. The car measures the same width as previous models but has a more self-assured stance.

Great Power

There are two levels of power you can opt for with the 2018 Subaru Legacy for sale in Lee's Summit.

There is a 175 horsepower DOHC 2.5-liter BOXER engine producing 174-pound-feet of torque in the Legacy 2.5i. Fuel economy is increased with the Active Grille Shutter system that reduces wind resistance.

In the Legacy 3.6R Limited, there is the DOHC 3.6-liter BOXER engine with 6 cylinders producing 256 horsepower and 247 pound-feet of torque, giving it outstanding response at any speed.

Every Legacy model has an active All-Wheel Drive system that manages torque distribution depending upon available traction when accelerating and decelerating.

Responsive Drive

The new model is now more responsive and quieter, making it a more comfortable drive. The suspension has also been re-tuned to enhance its steering, agility and stopping power. There's a firmer, more direct brake-pedal, a smooth, linear response from the Electric Power Steering, and re-tuned dampers that smooth out bumps while reducing corner body roll.

The inside is a lot more spacious and comfortable in the 2018 Subaru Legacy model and includes a reduction of noise from outside the cabin. The reshaping of the exterior mirrors is a huge factor/enhancement that helps to reduce noise in the cabin. The front seating area is quieter with the new sound-insulating glass for the side windows and the rear seat noise is reduced by the new rear-wheel well aprons. The powertrain noise is reduced by the Lineartronic CVT on the 2.5-liter that makes adjustments to the engine timing when accelerating.

Comfort Features

The 2018 Subaru Legacy has been upgraded in a number of ways that make it surpass even the best, most advanced versions of itself that came before. A significant focus placed on indulgent, opulent comfort and cutting-edge modern technology is at the forefront of the brand new Legacy, which boasts a new, premium interior, and a sleekly redesigned, grandiose center console, providing a multimedia user experience that has been greatly enhanced in every way.

Owners of Premium and higher models can enjoy real dashboard stitching, door panels and seats, as well as black high-gloss trim throughout the interior for a luxurious, high-quality feel that makes all other cars pale in comparison. Gray has been newly added as an interior color option, joining the previous classic standbys of black and ivory. The steering wheel has also been radically redesigned for a modern, sporty look.

Comfort is back in a big way and better than ever with the 2018 Subaru Legacy. A more efficient air conditioning system will cool your vehicle faster and more uniformly, and a prominently placed, easy to reach temperature indicator makes adjustment a breeze. Interior power remains after the car has stopped, too! Finally, a larger, freshly redesigned clock face adds the perfect element to the ease of use you'll love about the new Legacy.

Technology

Comfort, however, is not the only feature you will love about the Legacy. Entertainment is a major factor to consider in a vehicle, and the 2018 Legacy has it in spades. The vehicle comes fully equipped with the latest STARLINK multimedia system, complete with an 8-inch central display and wireless Bluetooth technology that will enable you to control your iPod or smartphone with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay. TomTom navigation with a full 3 years of map updates is also included! For those drivers with technology loving family members, two USB power ports in the rear of the center console will provide your passengers with the convenience they expect and deserve in a luxury vehicle.

STARLINK itself is an upgrade from previous incarnations. Performance is quicker, and a faster CPU makes startup lightning fast. You'll swear you're using a cutting-edge smartphone! The STARLINK multimedia system also includes a number of fun and convenient apps to use alone or to pair with your phone, including Pandora, Aha, Stitcher, Music Player, Calendar, iHeart Radio, Weather, and News. Other apps added this year include:

  • Smart maps with Magellan NAVI
  • Best Parking for locating and comparing parking rates
  • Glympse for location sharing in real-time
  • Quick Guide, your one-stop reference guide for your vehicle
  • eBird for locations of local bird sightings
  • Yelp to look up reviews of local businesses
  • Eventseeker for local event information
  •  

Limited and Premium models of the 2018 Legacy feature STARLINK systems that are compatible with Over The Air updates via Wi-Fi.

In short, the 2018 Subaru Legacy is all about more comfort, more tech, and more satisfaction for you when you drive away in one.

Safety Features

There are tons of new safety features and updates to some of the previous features for the 2018 Subaru Legacy.

A Reverse Automatic Braking (RAB) system and Steering Responsive Headlights are available on the 2018 Legacy and will detect anything that might be in the path of the vehicle and let the driver know by giving an audible warning. It will also show the driver on the center screen exactly where that object is located.

Another new feature on the 2018 model is the TPMS tire pressure monitoring system. This system detects when the tires are losing any air as well as which specific tire needs attention.

The Blind Spot Detection and Rear Cross Traffic Alert indicator is not a new feature; however, the lamp has been enlarged and moved to the mirror's side, therefore, making it a more effective tool for the driver.

The rearview camera has a new feature in which the guides on the display move in harmony with the driver as they are steering so that they can back up more accurately and efficiently.

The Legacy has what is called Eyesight Driver Assist Technology and this includes features that will help the accuracy of the driver. The features include Vehicle Lane Departure Warning, Pre-Collision Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keep Assist and Blind Spot Detection and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Incline Start Assist and Electronic Hill Holder System which will not allow your car to move on a hill until you press the accelerator.

The Legacy also has new features that are directed at keeping the driver safe. Standard Welcome Lighting are lights that stay illuminated as the driver approaches and retreats from the vehicle. The Legacy also features automatic locks which are another feature aimed at keeping the user of this vehicle safe. If you are a parent then you will appreciate the fact that the 2018 Legacy has also improved the latch anchors on the car so that your child's car seat will be that much easier to get in!

There are two STARLINK packages that are among the least expensive the industry offers. The Safety Plus package has SOA Emergency Assistance along with Enhanced Roadside Assistance, Automatic Notification of Collisions and Need for Maintenance and Diagnostic Reports that are given monthly.

There is even more coverage with the Safety Plus and Security Plus Package from STARLINK because it comes with a Recovery Service for Stolen Vehicles, an Alarm Notification, Remote Locking and Unlocking, and a Remote Vehicle Locator with Horn and Lights.
