Fuel Economy

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.

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.

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.
