New and Used Subaru Legacy for Sale Philippines
The new Subaru Legacy 2016 is not just a vehicle you use to go to work. And neither is it something you use just to impress your date with. It’s a serious vehicle altogether. In 1990, R.L.Polk and Company declared the Legacy the number one selling 4-wheel drive vehicle in the USA, while the Automotive Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) also voted it "1990's Best Sedan". Ever present in car rallies, the Legacy has won the Alcan Winter Rally in 1990, 1992, 2002, and 2006. It was also the first Group N car to finish the world's most grueling rally under the World Rally Championship: the WRC Safari Rally.
In 1998, the second generation Subaru Legacy also set a new world record for the fastest mass-produced turbocharged station wagons with small engines. The previous record was also held by Subaru Legacy (still the second generation). Other than its well-known engine and AWD system, the 2016 Subaru Legacy Philippines has a slew of features that aim to protect and pamper its occupants. This mid-size car was introduced in 1989 by the Japanese car manufacturer, Subaru, and their original goal was to compete with the North American midsize market dominated by Toyota Camry, Nissan Altima, and Honda Accord. They also offered the higher Legacy variants as an alternative to compact executive cars like the BMW 3 Series, Alfa Romeo 159, and Audi A4.
The 2016 Subaru Legacy is currently available in selected world markets like Japan, New Zealand, Chile, and North America. However, the most current model that’s sold in the Philippines is the 2015 model. Despite changing directions and dropping its turbo models, the Legacy is still pitted against the Toyota Camry, Nissan Altima, and Honda Accord.

Subaru Legacy 2016 in the Philippines
How is the 2016 Subaru Legacy different from the 2015 model?
The new Subaru Legacy 2016 made some tweaks under the hood, and now offers a newer engine and single variant (sedan), dropping the Turbo lineup altogether. And while this has caused a slight commotion (and a bit of alienation) among Subaru Legacy fans, many are happy with the overall changes and updates that Subaru did in Legacy.
- Safety link (optional)
- Eyesight system
- Lane Keep Assist
- Enhanced steering wheel
What is new about the Subaru Legacy 2016 design?
The 2016 Subaru Legacy has made new changes with its design. It now has a midsize sedan appeal, with a more dignified style that makes it look more imposing. Its new design language, “Dynamic Solidarity”, gives it a more refined and proportional appearance, refining some of the remaining awkward designs of the previous generation.

- Hexagon-shaped grille
- Horizontal tail lamps
- Aerodynamic rear
What are Subaru Legacy 2016 specs and features?
The Subaru Legacy has made quite a few significant tweaks when it comes to the engine, using re-tuned dampers and a newer engine: the FB25. Its active torque vectoring feature is very impressive. And when you add its tough exterior and low center of gravity, then you can go all out with the hard corners without any fear of toppling over.
- Vehicle dynamics control
- Remote engine key starter
What are Subaru Legacy 2016 prices in the Philippines?
Here’s good news for all Subaru Legacy fans: it’s quite affordable. Of course, not as cheap as most vehicles, but for a Subaru brand, then it’s definitely quite a steal. The price of its base variant, the 2.5i-S, is around 2 million. However, if you have around P300,000 tucked in somewhere (you never know), then we highly recommend you go with the 3.6R-S for more options.

The Subaru Legacy now has an FB25 engine that’s quite an improvement over its predecessor, the EJ engine, and its standard 2.5 liter, 4-cylinder is at par with other 4-cylinder vehicles in the market today.

The Legacy’s well-matched Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT) gives it a smoother and more stable ride, while its aspirated engine creates an impressive 175 PS at 5800 rpm and 235 Nm of torque at 4000 rpm.
