2011 Subaru Legacy Fuel Economy

7.0
Fuel Economy
Thanks to the new continuously variable (CVT) automatic transmission that's available in 2011 Subaru Legacy 2.5i models, the Legacy can have the highest fuel economy of any mid-size, all-wheel-drive sedan. With this transmission, we've met or exceeded its 26-mpg combined figure in a mix of driving.

Unfortunately, the rest of the Legacy lineup isn't nearly as fuel-efficient. If you want the manual transmission, it comes with significantly lower EPA ratings, and in either 2.5GT or 3.6R variants the Legacy is only rated 18/25.
