Subaru has been fairly stingy with features, so we at TheCarConnection.com have given the 2008 Subaru Legacy only a slightly above-average score in this area.

Edmunds says this 2008 Subaru "base car is a bit of a stripper." Nonetheless, Cars.com reports that all Subaru 2008 model Legacies "include staples like power windows and door locks, remote keyless entry and a CD stereo," so even the base trim 2008 Subaru Legacy has something to offer in this regard.

Options add a little, not a lot, to the Legacy’s character. Edmunds advises that "other trims are well-equipped and can make the Legacy as luxurious and comfortable as some midsize cars wearing luxury badges." Kelley Blue Book reports that "notable optional equipment" on this Subaru 2008 includes "DVD touch-screen navigation system, in-dash six-CD changer, power glass moonroof, leather seating, power driver's seat, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, fog lights, heated side mirrors, wiper de-icer, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter, wood-look trim and front sport seats."

Some of the latest expected tech features, such as a Bluetooth interface, an iPod interface, and live traffic updates, aren't available on the Legacy.

Conclusion

The 2008 Subaru Legacy isn’t especially plush, even in the $30,000 versions; the latest high-tech features are absent.

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.
