Ch-Ch-Changes: 2011 Subaru Legacy

2011 Subaru Legacy

The Legacy was completely redesigned for the 2010 model year. For 2011, there are only some minor content and trim updates to differentiate the two. The 2011 is on sale now, so these changes could help you make up your mind if you’re trying to decide between a 2010 and 2011.

The 2011 Legacy is available in 2.5i, 2.5i Premium, 2.5i Limited, 2.5GT Limited, 3.6R, 3.6R Premium and 3.6R Limited trim levels. The 2.5GT Premium trim was dropped for the 2011 model year; it was the base turbocharged boxer engine option and included features like four-wheel-disc ventilated brakes, dual chrome exhaust and 18-inch wheels. The 2.5 GT Limited trim is now the sole turbocharged trim, which comes equipped with a standard power moonroof and fog lights.

The optional Harman Kardon stereo package, which is standard on the Limited trims, now includes XM Satellite Radio. For 2011, all trims come with folding side mirrors standard like the 2011 Outback.

As for pricing, the base Legacy maintains its $19,995 starting price from the 2010 model year, though higher destination and delivery fees will increase the total price by $30. The 2.5i Limited and 3.6R Limited see $300 price increases, thanks to the addition of satellite radio. The updated 2.5GT Limited increases in cost by $1,400.

Any news on manual tranny glitches fix for 2011?

The limited edition and premium trims are getting pricey there, especially for a Subaru. I think you can get a 3-series BMW or C-class for the same price, even if pre-owned it would be very slightly pre-owned. I don't see people paying that much for a Subaru.


The newly Re-desisgned legacy is now ALOT smoother, quieter, safer & absolutely as solid of a vehicle you're gonna find throughout the whole market... Maybe the Legacy is a little more expensive, but you also get what you pay for which is 1 of the best handling, perfectly balanced & symmetrical awd sedan so you can maximize your desire for performance along w/ having the security of it being a top safety pick... You're seeing that the whole Subaru brand is being cross shopped against your upper eschelon vehicles like audi, bmw, lexus and acura. With the amount of quality assurance the Subaru goes through, its no surprise they're about to celebrate their 3rd straight year of record sales!!
