2022 Subaru Legacy Review

2022 Subaru Legacy

MSRP: $22,995 - $36,195










  • An extensive list of features.
  • All-wheel drive is standard.
  • Refined Interior quality.


  • The base engine's tone is a little muted.


The 2022 Subaru Legacy has a spacious, luxurious interior, but its base engine isn’t especially powerful, and it’s not as enjoyable to drive as other class competitors. There is no lifted suspension on the brand’s family car. There will also be no black plastic wheel-well cladding. 

The Legacy is designed for people who like the on-road appearance and value the traditional sedan body type. In keeping with its conventional form, the Legacy has a large interior with plenty of safety and driver-assistance systems, as well as a slew of connectivity options. 

Although it lacks the practicality of its boxier siblings, it is comparable with other popular sedans such as the Honda Accord, Hyundai Sonata, and Toyota Camry.

What’s Newly Include in 2022

The new upgrades in the 2022 Subaru Legacy include the following features:

  • Alloy wheels are standard.

Engine, Transmission, and Fuel Efficiency

The standard engine is a 2.5-liter horizontally opposed four-cylinder with 182 horsepower. The 2.4-liter turbocharged engine in the Limited XT and Touring XT trims makes 260 horsepower. The continuously variable automatic transmission and all-wheel drive are standard on all Legacy models. We’ve tested both engines, or what a difference a turbo makes. The Touring XT reached 60 mph in 6.1 seconds, but the non-turbo Sport took an unimpressive 8.0 seconds. 

The new Legacy offers somewhat better handling and a more comfortable ride than the previous model. The EPA estimates that non-turbo vehicles get 27 mpg in the city, 35 mpg on the highway, and 30 mpg combined, while the turbocharged versions come in just behind with 24 mpg in the city, 32 mpg on the highway, and 27 mpg on the combined highway.

What is the seating capacity?

The Legacy car seats up to five passengers. Upfront, the driver has a superior view in most directions, and the seats are very comfortable for long periods. Large, wide doors facilitate entry and exit from the vehicle, and the second row provides sufficient space for tall passengers to sit comfortably.

How many Child Car Seats?

The Legacy’s rear outboard seats include two full sets of LATCH connectors, and the back center seat has a tether anchor. This LATCH system has the highest grade of Good+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, indicating it is among the simplest and most flexible to use.

Interior Quality

The premium interior of the Subaru Legacy 2022 is impressive. The quality of the materials and the overall design are excellent. The Legacy can be made more luxurious by additional features like Nappa leather upholstery and ventilated front seats. 

Cargo Space

The trunk of the Legacy is about 15 cubic feet in size. That’s somewhat below average for the midsize vehicle class, but it’s not so bad considering the segment’s biggest and smallest trunks are only separated by two cubic feet.

The trunk’s large opening and ample interior depth make it simple to load things. There’s plenty of room for a weekend vacation for two or a large shopping trip.

Infotainment, Bluetooth, and Navigation

The Legacy’s standard infotainment system has a snappy 7-inch touch screen, simple-to-navigate menus, and a plethora of clearly marked buttons and knobs. When you move up from the base model, you’re met with an 11.6-inch vertical and tablet-style touch screen.

  • Standard infotainment features include a 7-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, satellite radio, Bluetooth, HD Radio, a four-speaker stereo, and 2 Usb ports.
  • An 11.6-inch touch screen, a Wi-Fi hot spot, a six-speaker stereo, a 12-speaker Harman Kardon premium stereo, 2 rear USB ports, navigation, and wireless device charging are all available infotainment features.
  • Additionally, a proximity keyless entry system, push-button start, a moonroof,  dual-zone automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, remote start, and a universal garage door opener are offered.

Should I Buy a 2022 Subaru Legacy?

The 2022 Subaru Legacy is one of the finest values in its class. It costs about $23,000 and comes standard with all-wheel drive and plenty of other driver-assist features. If you want a car that’s spacious, safe, and comfortable, but also boring to drive daily, the Legacy should be a good choice.
