The All New 2017 Subaru Legacy is Waiting For You in Ellsworth, Maine
When folks hear the name "Subaru," most often they conjure up images of handsome SUVs and crossovers, tires rolling over unpaved roads, likely a forest setting, but that leaves out one important member of the Subaru lineup, the Subaru Legacy. While the Legacy might not be a crossover or SUV like many of the vehicles it shares its surname with, it still brings that legendary all-wheel drive that Subaru is so known for, and as with most Subaru vehicles, the AWD comes standard. If you're in the areas of Ellsworth ME, Bangor, Bar Harbor, and Brewer Maine and you're looking for a midsize sedan with heaps of utility and convenient features, then we've got great news for you: you can end your search before it even begins with the Subaru Legacy.
Explore the Engine Options Available in the Subaru Legacy
The Subaru Legacy is a well-styled, comfortable midsize sedan and it brings two engine options to the party, both of which are paired to a standard CVT automatic transmission. The 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine kicks out 175 horsepower and gets 26 mph city/36 mph highway, which are strong figures for an AWD car. For those interested in more 'giddyup,' you can opt for the considerably more powerful 2.6-liter 6-cylinder engine capable of 256 horsepower, though your fuel efficiency does suffer some for the improved performance. However, once you select your engine, most of the difficult choices are behind you. From there, you'll select your trim and features, so you can build-out the perfect midsize sedan for you.
Choose from Various Trim Levels and Convenience Features
The Legacy offers three trims, with a hearty entry-level feature offering that includes automatic headlights and windshield wipers, Bluetooth® connectivity, a backup camera, a touchscreen with available Subaru STARLINK™ Connected Services, power accessories, and steering wheel-mounted audio controls. As you climb the trim tree, you begin to see things like leather-wrapped steering wheel and a larger touchscreen, and at the top of the trim levels, leather upholstery, a Harman Kardon sound system, larger alloy wheels, and a wood-grain trim. Of course, the best place to take in all these differences is from the driver's seat as you take your test drive.
Comfort and convenience are excellent, but here at Stanley Subaru, we also know most drivers from Ellsworth ME, Bangor, Bar Harbor, and Brewer Maine are looking for a midsize sedan that's well equipped with safety features in addition to convenience features. Well, the Subaru Legacy delivers big on that front. The Subaru Legacy arrives with some very impressive standard features like stability and traction control, automatic headlights, and a backup camera. If you want even more peace of mind, you can opt for more driver assistance features, including adaptive cruise control, forward-collision alert with automatic braking, lane-keep assist, rear cross-traffic alert, and a blind-spot monitoring system.
