Lastly, as something brand new to the fifth-gen Legacy, a 3,6 L 6-cylinder engine with a five-speed automatic transmission and 256 hp.

    Considering how refreshed the 2010 model was, the 2011 Subaru Legacy decided to keep the changes to a minimum and play off of its sophisticated midsize sedan legacy with the AWD you love. The performance was still evenly distributed between three engines. A basic 170 hp 2.5L, a lively 265 hp 2.5L turbo, and a torque-focused 256 hp 3.6L Six-cylinder engine. These powertrains were paired with either a 5-speed automatic, 6-speed manual or CVT transmission, and at an astounding 27 mpg highway.
    Although very little changed in style or power for 2011, the Subaru Legacy did drop one of the 2.5GT Premium trim levels, so if you see a used Subaru Legacy for sale offered in the premium trim you may just want to snatch it up as it was only offered in 2010. Additionally, some features like a refreshing moonroof, helpful fog lights, entertaining satellite radio, and unstated by respectable interior enhancements were made standard for 2011.
    The 2011 Subaru legacy maintains all the best of the past and adds just enough of the future to keep things fresh.

For engines, you will choose between a 2.5L4-cylinder engine that provides 170 hp, a 2.5L 4-cylinder turbo engine that produces 265 hp, and a 3.6L V6 engine that produces 256 hp.

    In 2012 you will still notice that the trims were changed around a bit and that there will be a new standard. The base trim, or 2012 Subaru Legacy 2.5i, will now get audio controls mounted on the steering wheel and the option to invest in the Alloy Wheel Package which includes heated mirrors, seats, and fog lamps. As for the 2.5i Premium, the trim gained an upgraded stereo that consists of an input jack, USB port, iPod controls capability, Bluetooth, and SiriusXM.
