24 mpg city, 32 highway (CVT); 21/28 (manual, 2.5i); 18/25 (2.5GT); 18/25 (3.6R)
Non-turbo versions use regular-grade gas.
The slow lane's hitting 80 mph, and almost nobody's in the slow lane. Getting 32 in that setting is exceptional.
With 2013 Subaru Legacy 2.5i models getting a new-generation version of the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, fuel economy figures are up this year by 1-2 mpg on all the 2.5i variants--to as much as 24 mpg city, 32 highway with the Lineartronic CVT automatic.
Manual versions of the 2.5i model get 21/28 mpg, while six-cylinder 3.6R models achieve 18 mpg city, 25 highway.
These numbers have some good and some bad; 2.5i models are the most fuel-efficient all-wheel-drive models in this class, while 3.6R models end up being among the thirstier six-cylinder mid-size sedans.
3.6R versions of the Legacy aren't very fuel-efficient, but 2.5i versions get good gas mileage compared to other all-wheel-drive cars.
