Generation Overview

Making its debut at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show, the sixth generation of the Subaru Legacy was released with the 2015 model year. The two engines were carried in from the fifth generation, with a few tweaks increasing the output potential of the 2.5L four-cylinder engine. This model year added available Eyesight®, Subaru's driver-assistance suite of features, the 2016 model year included an available active lane-keeping assist feature which would add steering torque to prevent drift within the lane. The generation ended with the 2019 model year to make way for the seventh generation in 2020, which switched the Legacy to the Subaru Global Platform, providing a stiffer torsion compared to the sixth generation.

Reviews for 2017 Subaru Legacy

Overall Rating

5.0 out of 5 (9 reviews)

love my Subaru!

The look of the car looks classy. The speed of the pickup in this car is quick. The seats are comfortable and it has almost all of the features I was looking for. What it’s missing is auto-start which I’ll get installed before winter. But it’s everything I was hoping for .


  • Cargo Space: The trunk/cargo space is quite roomy for this size of car!
  • Seat Comfort: Seats are leather-like and are very comfortable.
  • Interior Space: Space inside the car is quite roomy.


  • Cabin Noise: There is some noise but nothing like my Nissan Rogue.
  • Technology and Entertainment: Does not have auto start

- Terri Wilson, 2017 Subaru Legacy

No regrets

I have always wanted a sedan with all of the amenities, and good Lord did I get that! This car is a dream to drive, I feel safe even if there is bad weather, and she is awesome on the gas. I will be keeping my baby for as long as I can.


  • Ride and Handling: I have a bad back, so sitting for any length of time can become painful. I have not experienced this in this car.
  • Weather Versatility: I loathe driving in bad weather, and while I will plan my trips around the road conditions, that does not always work. I have no issues when it comes to my Subaru.


  • Technology and Entertainment: The map isn't the greatest, when I tried to use it coming back from MI last year it took me on a very long route, longer than what Google Maps had us going.
