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.
Motor Trend

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

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

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

The 2013 Subaru Legacy comes in three trim levels: base, Premium, and Limited. All three are available with the new 2.5-liter four, while the six can be ordered with base or Premium only. Standard features in all Legacy sedans include automatic headlights, steering-wheel switches for the audio system and cruise control, a folding 60/40 split rear seat-back, and Subaru's characteristic Hill Holder system, which sets the brakes when the car comes to a stop on a slope until the driver accelerates away. The standard AM-FM-CD audio system has four speakers and, for 2013, adds Bluetooth pairing for hands-free mobile-phone use and audio streaming, a USB charging port, and iPod control.

Moving up to the Premium mid-range level (on the 2.5i only) adds the CVT as standard, along with a 10-way power adjustable driver's seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, leather coverings for the shifter and steering wheel, dash-mounted tweeters, and a few other amenities.

At the top of the range, the Limited models add to that leather upholstery, dual-zone climate control, an All-Weather Package (optional on Premium) that bundles de-icing wipers and heated mirrors and front seats), four-way power adjustment for the front passenger, and a Harman/Kardon nine-speaker audio system with a 440-Watt amplifier and a 4.3-inch display screen. Satellite radio is also standard with this system. For 2013, Subaru has added rear-seat air-conditioning ducts and electroluminescent gauges to the Limited models.

Options include a power moonroof and an in-dash GPS navigation system with real-time traffic data.


The 2013 Subaru Legacy is a strong value—and that's not just because of its standard all-wheel drive.

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.
