Expert Quotes:

Similar to the four-cylinders' Premium and Limited trims, the six-cylinders' come standard or available with harmon-kardon audio, Bluetooth with streaming audio capability, navigation, leather, and power moonroof.

Standard all-wheel drive is a bonus for snow-belt states.
Consumer Guide

As far as its control layout goes, the 2010 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Premium is a study in economy.

If you want to get Subaru's new voice-activated navigation system...you'll have to open your wallet for the Limited trim before you can order it.

Legacy 3.6R Limited matches premium-priced compact European all-wheel drive sports-luxury sedans very well, for about the price of one of their base models or less
The Auto Channel

The value factor for the Subaru Legacy got a lot stronger with its redesign last year, as Subaru ramped up standard equipment while actually dropping prices through much of the model line. The 3.6R models dropped the most in price, but our editors' pick for best value is the base 2.5i model, which is an amazing deal at a starting price of around $20k (or a thousand more with the CVT). At that price, it includes power windows, locks, and mirrors; air conditioning; cruise control; tilt-and-telescope steering; keyless entry; split-folding rear seatbacks; and a four-speaker AM/FM CD player with aux input. Steering-wheel audio controls are also included, and for 2011 the Legacy gets folding outside mirrors at all trim levels.

The Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT Premium has been discontinued for 2011, so turbocharged models are only offered in very well-equipped 2.5GT Limited trim, including chrome exhaust tips, a power driver's seat, dual-zone climate control and a 440-watt (and now XM satellite radio compatible) Harman Kardon premium audio system, a power moonroof, and fog lights. The system is also optional on the Premium, as is a moonroof. A voice-activated nav system—one of the better ones on the market, and not requiring a complicated controller—is optional only on the Limited and includes a backup camera, Bluetooth connectivity, USB and iPod interfacing, and streaming Bluetooth audio.


With a strong list of standard features—including all-wheel drive—and an aggressive pricing strategy, nearly all of the 2011 Subaru Legacy models are a strong value.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
