2020 Subaru Legacy Features


  • The new 2020 Legacy offers the available DriverFocus™ Distraction Mitigation System to ensure you keep your attention on the road and know to stop driving when driving tired. This system is similar to an attentive co-pilot who can remind you if you're driving distracted or drowsy. For even more convenience, the DriverFocus™ Distraction Mitigation System can remember up to five drivers' faces as well as their preferences. 
  • For more confidence and clarity going into corners, the new Legacy offers available LED Steering Responsive Headlights, which track the direction of a turn. There is also the option of High Beam Assist, which will automatically switch between high and low beams when an oncoming vehicle is detected.
  • You can count on all-around awareness with available features like Blind-Spot Detection, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, and Reverse Automatic Braking. With these advanced driver assistance features, the Legacy will help notify you of dangers from all directions.


  • The new Legacy continues to offer standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration as part of its SUBARU STARLINK™ Multimedia system. These integration features allow you to get directions, make phone calls, and more with your phone integrated with the multimedia system.

  • With available STARLINK™ Safety and Security, Crestwood drivers will find more assurance with features like SOS Emergency Assistance and Advanced Automatic Collision Notification. There are even features such as Remote Engine Start with Climate Control that can be accessed through your smartphone.
  • The centerpiece of the new Legacy redesign is the all-new available 11.6-inch STARLINK™ Multimedia touchscreen. On the base model, you can expect to find two 7-inch displays stacked on top of one another with one controlling infotainment while the other is for climate control.


  • The new Legacy comes with a standard 182-horsepower 2.5-liter direct-injection BOXER® engine that offers up to 35 MPG on the highway. For even more power, there is the option of the available 260-horsepower direct-injection turbocharged BOXER® engine that delivers up to 32 MPG on the highway.
  • Every Subaru Legacy comes with a standard Lineartronic® CVT with eight-speed manual-mode paddle shifters for more engagement. This transmission helps Shelbyville drivers by finding the right gear ration for the right situation.
  • The new auto start-stop function comes standard for the 2020 Legacy. This feature reduces emissions and fuel consumption by turning off the engine in idle situations. The engine instantly restarts when you remove your foot from the gas.
