Detailed Review

The 2015 Subaru Legacy is offered with two engine options: a 2.5L EJ25 Engine and a 3.6L EZ36 Engine. There is a 2.0L DOHC turbodiesel engine available in the European markets but it is not prevalent in Kenya.

Interior

The interior of the 2015 Subaru Legacy is simple and plain. Compared to the previous year, the quality of the materials has improved, and the armrests and center console now feature increased padding. The new optional touchscreen navigation system may be handled with tablet-like gestures and provides superior responsiveness and smartphone integration compared to the Legacy’s previous touchscreen-based system.

Cabin Storage


Cabin storage is essential for storing items such as smartphones, beverages, goggles, handbags, etc. For the first row, there are 2-cup holders, door panel storage, a storage shelf below the dashboard, a glovebox, and the center box. For the second row, there are 2-cup holders, seat pockets, and door pockets.

Boot Space

The 2015 Subaru Legacy has a big trunk that can accommodate sizeable luggage. It can fit the luggage of a family of five with ease. The back seats can be folded down to generate additional boot room suitable for transporting big objects.

Exterior

The new Legacy is designed in a more dignified manner, moving away from the touring midsize sedan appeal. It has a new design language, dubbed “Dynamic Solidity”, that was first seen on the Viziv and WRX concepts. The futuristic LED-bracketed headlights surround a hexagonal-shaped grill with prominent horizontal lines to portray an image of distinction. This is repeated in the similarly styled tail lamps, which emphasize the rear’s sleek flowing finish.

Safety Features

Standard safety features in the 2015 Subaru Legacy include stability and traction control, antilock disc brakes, a rearview camera, front side airbags, side curtain airbags, and new seat cushion airbags that deploy from the seat bottom to help keep occupants in place in a frontal collision.

2015 Subaru Legacy Ground Clearance

Conclusion

The 2015 Subaru Legacy is one of the best station wagons in the market with good on-road and off-road capabilities that its competitors can barely match. It has a good space booth in the seats and in the boot. Its only problem is the low ground clearance, which can be a challenge on high-speed bumps.
