2017 Subaru Legacy Sport
The Subaru Legacy Sport debuts as a 2017 model with exclusive styling features including a dark gray front grille, fog lights with gloss black housings, and newly designed 18-in. sport-styled wheels. Chrome-accented rocker trim and high luster silver-finished turn-signal mirrors further emphasize the sleek look of this new trim level.
The Legacy Sport interior highlights include unique two-tone pairing of gray and black cloth upholstery and exclusive blue stitching on the seats, door panels, and steering wheel. Also, a carbon fiber pattern dash and door panel trim are complemented by piano-black door switch panels and steering wheel switches.
The Sport package includes a standard SUBARU STARLINK 7.0” Multimedia Plus system with a high-resolution 7-inch LCD screen. In addition, STARLINK 7.0” Multimedia includes Bluetooth® hands-free SMS text messaging and dual USB ports.
The new Sport trim also offers Reverse Automatic Braking and High Beam Assist as part of the EyeSight Driver Assist Technology option package. Both features are new to the Legacy line for 2017.
Equipped with standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, the Legacy Sport is powered by a 175-hp, 2.5-liter SUBARU BOXER engine paired with a standard Lineartronic® CVT (continuously variable transmission) with manual mode and paddle shifters. The combination achieves a combined 29 MPG EPA-estimated fuel economy rating which is among the highest for midsize sedans with all-wheel drive.
