Subaru Legacy latest Technology

Control leads to confidence, and stability creates
an agility that excites in the all-new Legacy. Subaru vehicles are gifted at
inspiring confidence behind the wheel, thanks to the inherently stable design
of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive paired with the uniquely balanced SUBARU BOXER
engine. This system delivers power to all four wheels at all times for enhanced
control on all roads and in poor conditions. It has excellent side-to-side
balance and handling precision, thanks to its main components being aligned
longitudinally, while its low centre of gravity creates an especially engaging
and responsive drive. The unique advantages of Symmetrical AWD make for
exceptionally rewarding handling and empower you to better avoid danger.

Active
Torque Split AWD

Paired with Lineartronic, the Active Torque Split
AWD system responds to traction conditions, the transmission and driver inputs
by continuously controlling the torque distribution front to rear.

Improved
suspension

Using improved front struts and rear shocks, the
suspension has been finely tuned for an enjoyable balance between responsive
steering and a smooth, comfortable ride. 2.5i-S and 3.6R-S are also equipped
with STABLEX-Ride, a new valve system and larger diameter front strut
cylinders, which have improved damping response at low piston speeds and permit
damping suppression at high piston speeds for much better stability and ride
quality with less body shake.

Cradle
mount frame

You’ll enjoy more agile handling and a smoother ride
in the Legacy thanks to its Cradle Mount System. And in a collision, it allows
the engine to retract under the cabin, lengthening the front crumple zone.
SUBARU
BOXER Engine
Few other cars drive with the self-assured confidence
of the Legacy, so you won’t be surprised by how uniquely it is accomplished.
The horizontally-opposed configuration of the SUBARU BOXER engine places the
pistons 180 degrees apart, for a lower, flatter profile than other engine
types. This gives the engine, and therefore the overall vehicle, a lower centre
of gravity and better sense of balance. Further, the pistons’ opposing
movements inherently counteract each other, naturally reducing vibration.


Subaru Legacy Safety Features
The
awareness to anticipate. The stability to avoid
At Subaru, we believe the best accident is the one
that never happens. That’s why we’ve equipped the all-new Legacy with
Symmetrical AWD to ensure control in nearly any weather condition and the
SUBARU BOXER engine to enhance stability with its lower centre of gravity. The
Vehicle Dynamics Control System and generously sized brakes also give the
Legacy athletic reflexes to make it more nimble when you need to steer clear of
danger.

Increased
visibility

We adjusted the frame to increase your visibility
and decrease your blind spot area. We also installed front quarter windows with
door-mounted side mirrors to reduce the front blind spot for increased forward
visibility.

Vehicle
Dynamics Control System

Vehicle Dynamics Control System monitors and
analyses if the vehicle is following the driver’s intended course via an array
of sensors. If a tyre slips or a high speed turns the vehicles off its intended
path, the AWD torque distribution, engine output and brakes at each wheel are
adjusted to assist in keeping the vehicle on course.

Active
Torque Vectoring

When cornering, Active Torque Vectoring applies the
brakes and distributes less torque to the inside wheels and more torque to the
outside wheels. It helps make a sharp turn and handling more precise. In
combination with Vehicle Dynamics Control System, it helps to keep you out of
harm’s way, granting you a comforting sense of security.
All-around
protection.
Knowing the importance of all that’s aboard, the
Legacy does a lot to protect you and your passengers with high-quality safety
systems like seven SRS* airbags, Ring-shaped Reinforcement Frames and even a
cabin-protecting layout. There may be risks in life, but we make sincere
efforts to make sure that what you value most is well protected in your Legacy.

Ring-shaped Reinforced Frame

The Ring-shaped Reinforcement Frames strengthen the
passenger cabin from the roof to the doors, pillars and floor. This design
works to divert and dissipate impact energy away from the occupants in a
collision. It also contributes to strengthening and lightening the chassis,
leading to greater, reinforced protection.

Cabin-protecting layout

Every Subaru goes above and beyond common practice
when it comes to your safety. In the event of a head-on collision, your
Legacy’s SUBARU BOXER engine and gearbox are designed to avoid moving into the
cabin for your protection.

Seats, Seatbelts and SRS* Airbags

Standard on Legacy are front SRS* airbags, plus
front-side SRS* airbags, curtain SRS* airbags and knee SRS* airbags.
Height-adjustable front seatbelts feature pretensioners to hold passengers
firmly in place, and load limiters that ease peak forces to the chest.
