What Our Members Are Saying about the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2013 Subaru Legacy

2013 Subaru Legacy Seat Room and Comfort: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2014 4dr Sedan 173-horsepower 2.5L H4
6-speed shiftable CVT AWD
Both front and rear seat room are very good. see full Subaru Legacy review
2013 0 I had two tall passengers with me - even with the front seat pushed back to accomodate for height (6'4" guy and 5'10" woman), they said the backseat room was quite decent and no complaints on our hour+ long drive. The cloth seats are well padded and the fabirc was breathable - cool for summer and insulating for winter. see full Subaru Legacy review
2012 4dr Sedan 170-horsepower 2.5L H4
6-speed shiftable CVT AWD
Wide rear door openings make ingress & egress from back seat very easy. Commodious rear seat room. see full Subaru Legacy review

What Our Members Are Saying about the Powertrain of the 2013 Subaru Legacy

2013 Subaru Legacy Powertrain: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2013 4dr Sedan 256-horsepower 3.6L H6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
With the H6 engine there is very strong performance. From 0-60 in about 7 seconds, it is faster than it looks. A Cadillac XLR thought it could pass me and was shocked when I zipped on ahead and it had no chance of pulling in front of me before the lanes narrowed down to one. It was funny seeing him flash his headlights because he did not have the smarts to push his car hard enough to beat the slow Subaru (I was driving fast enough, they were just annoyed). see full Subaru Legacy review
2012 4dr Sedan 170-horsepower 2.5L H4
6-speed shiftable CVT AWD
Engine /transmission combination provide smooth acceleration. Cruising is relaxed. see full Subaru Legacy review
2013 Subaru Legacy Powertrain: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2013 0 The base 2.5l 4 cylinder boxer is pleasant and works well the CVT for the most part. However, it did not feel like the car had all of its 173HP / 172 lb/ft of torque. In passing situations, the engine had to wind out and although smooth, took longer to come up to speed than I expected. I'm not sure if it was the engine or the CVT that dulled the ability of the engine to pull stronger. see full Subaru Legacy review

2013 Subaru Legacy Tires: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2014 4dr Sedan 173-horsepower 2.5L H4
6-speed shiftable CVT AWD
The stock Bridgestone EL400 tires are rated poorly on all surfaces by Tire Rack and Consumer Reports. I found a tire dealer who gave me a 250.00 credit for the stock tires, which I switched out for Continental PureContacts, which are outstanding on dry and wet surfaces, and very competent thus far in snow. The stock tires were nearly a dealbreaker for me when considering the purchase. see full Subaru Legacy review

5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
The standard tires are not terrible, but they are not great either as they are Bridgestone Turanzas. I have a feeling Subaru got a deal on them to place these tires on thecar. When they expire I plan to get better all weather tires that Tire Rack recommends (like Michilin or Goodyear Tripletred Assurance). see full Subaru Legacy review
