|EyesightTM Advanced Driving Assist System||The 2013 Subaru Legacy is available with Eyesight, which utilizes two cameras to monitor activity in the road ahead and provide assistance to the driver when needed most. Eyesight features four different advanced active-safety systems. Adaptive Cruise Control maintains a safe distance from the car ahead. Pre-collision Braking can slow or stop the car automatically when it sees a panic braking situation unfolding. Pre-collision Throttle Management is designed to cut power during an absent-minded start, if it detects a person or object in the way. And the Lane Departure and Sway Warning helps keep you on the straight and narrow. Like a second pair of eyes, Eyesight watches out for you with warning cues and by helping you avoid potential danger.|
|Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)||The ABS incorporates the latest thinking on anti-skid prevention, as well as other features designed with added safety in mind. Electronic Brake-force Distribution automatically adjusts front/rear brake pressure under different vehicle loads, Brake Override cuts engine power when the brakes are applied and Brake Assist automatically provides added stopping power in panic-braking situations.|
|Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC)||The Subaru VDC (VDC is also known as electronic stability control) system utilizes advanced sensors to monitor and analyze if the vehicle is following the driver’s intended course. When the limits of stability are approached, the system automatically adjusts the AWD torque distribution (Models equipped with CVT and 5EAT only), engine output and brakes at each wheel to help keep the vehicle on-course.|
|Advanced Ring-shaped Reinforcement Frame||This proprietary design connects the roof to the side pillars and the floor with further cross-members and reinforcement added for additional strength. As a result, impact energy coming from all directions is dissipated and then diverted away from the passenger cabin. A front crumple zone and an engine designed to slide under the passenger compartment provide further protection in the event of a frontal impact.|
|Airbags||The Subaru Legacy features a full complement of supplemental restraints, including dual-stage deployment front airbags, front seat-mounted side-impact airbags and side-curtain airbags with roll-over sensors for front and rear outboard occupants. This focus on passive safety represents an integral part of the Subaru offering and a key reason why our standards are setting the standard in markets around the world.|
|Whiplash-reducing Front Seats||The front seats are specially designed with rigid frames, firm headrests and energy-absorbing inner seat springs to help mitigate the effects of a rear-end collision and reduce the chances of whiplash. This is just another example of how Subaru is going the extra mile to provide drivers with an unsurpassed level of confidence behind the wheel.|
|Smooth and Responsive SUBAR BOXER Engine||The Subaru Legacy offers the choice of two potent SUBARU BOXER engines – an all-new 2.5L 4-cylinder or the largest engine in the fleet, a 3.6L 6-cylinder. The former delivers heightened fuel efficiency and is quicker off the line and more responsive than ever in all sorts of driving conditions. This engine is also available with PZEV equipment for even greater environmental performance. The 3.6L 6-cylinder utilizes Dual Active Valve Control technology to create smooth power and surprising fuel efficiency – all on regular unleaded fuel.|

|Subaru’s PZEV technology||The naturally aspirated 2.5-litre DOHC SUBARU BOXER is available with optional PZEV equipment that helps to reduce smog-forming emissions to near zero with no compromise in performance. This optional technology allows the Subaru Legacy to meet California’s Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (SULEV) tailpipe standard, making it one of the cleanest gas-powered vehicles on the road today.|

6-speed Manual Transmission (6MT)
The 6MT is connected to a viscous-coupling limited-slip centre differential that provides near neutral handling and maximum control for the driver. This transmission also features design improvements that have boosted fuel efficiency and overall performance. More importantly, these changes have created a sportier, more direct connection between the driver and the vehicle, and the vehicle and the road.
5-speed Automatic Transmission (5EAT) with Manual Mode
The 5-speed automatic transmission is paired with a variable torque distribution AWD system that sends equal power to all four wheels under hard acceleration and more power to the rear wheels under normal conditions for a sportier feel. For those who desire increased control and sporty driving, this transmission also features paddle shifters to operate a manual mode and automatic blipping control on downshifts.
Lineartronic® CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission)
The second generation of the Subaru Lineartronic® CVT is linked to a multi-plate transfer clutch AWD system that offers very predictable handling and automatically shifts torque to the back wheels to balance power distribution under hard acceleration or in low-traction conditions. More compact and lighter than before, the new CVT helps deliver the fuel efficiency of a front-wheel drive vehicle – over 1100 km*** on a single tank of fuel is possible – combined with the performance of full-time AWD. It’s also quieter and smoother, delivering seamless shifts and strong response at all engine speeds.
The revised MacPherson strut-type front suspension system offers enhanced comfort, safety and handling on all types of road surfaces. The system has been made more robust through greater stiffness, which helps to reduce noise, vibration and harshness. Other features of the design include a wide track for greater stability and long wheel travel to ensure the wheels stay in contact with the road – even when the road is at its worst.
The double-wishbone rear suspension on the Legacy has been enhanced with increased damper and spring rates. The net effect of these changes is 40% less body roll, which gives this unique utility vehicle a quieter, more responsive and more stable ride. This suspension design also offers a more controlled ride over uneven surfaces and provides more interior room for passengers and cargo.
