What’s new for the 2022 Subaru Legacy? 

For starters, the 2022 Subaru Legacy gets more standard equipment for this year’s model. According to Kelly Blue Book, in 2020, the new generation of the Subaru Legacy dropped. This gave the Legacy a stiffer body, which allowed for a better-tuned suspension and improved crash protection. 

The 2022 Subaru Legacy earned 5/5 stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and got a Top Safety Pick+ rating (the highest available) from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

The new Subaru Legacy continues the Subaru tradition of safety and reliability. Although the Legacy is the far more friendly and sensible sedan than the Subaru WRX, it still hits all the Subaru greatest hits like AWD, piles of standard safety tech, and a reliable powertrain.

Which is the best trim for the 2022 Subaru Legacy? 

KBB says if power isn’t a big sticking point for buyers, then the Premium trim might be the best choice. Premium trim comes with plenty of options while staying on the cheaper end of things. However, if you want that extra bit of pep, KBB says the XT is the only trim for you. This is because the XT comes with the hotter turbocharged 2.4-liter as standard. 

No matter which 2022 Subaru Legacy trim you go with, you can expect a reliable and safe sedan that will hang with you.
