Even though the Subaru Legacy does not come out as one of the most interesting or desirable packages in its segment, it always has been the most value-oriented sedan to come with a standard AWD system. The Legacy receives its mid-life cycle refresh for 2018 bringing in some noticeable but subtle exterior design updates, significant cabin changes, and most importantly a revised safety package. The engineers at Subaru also say that they have tweaked the Legacy’s chassis for improved ride and cabin refinement.
