Generation Overview

The sixth generation of the Subaru Legacy was unveiled with the 2015 model year at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show. The new generation included the two engines that had been carried in from the fifth generation, but with a few changes that were made to the engines to boost the 2.5L four-cylinder engine's output potential. The new generation also added available Eyesight® capability, which is Subaru's suite of driver-assist features. When the 2016 model year was released, it included available active lane-keeping assist features by adding steering torque to prevent the vehicle from drifting within the lane. The 2019 model year closed out the generation and saw the seventh-generation 2020 Legacy's change to the Subaru Global Platform for a stiffer torsion compared to past generations.
