The Legacy is a big reason why other midsize sedans in Canada are starting to offer all-wheel drive. Following updates in 2018, there are no changes to report this year. The Legacy can be specified with either a 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine producing 175 horsepower or a 3.6-litre six-cylinder unit rated at 256 horsepower—both with a CVT automatic. What's more, Subaru’s EyeSight advanced safety and driver-assist technology is available on every trim except the base 2.5i.
