Subaru Legacy

TIMING CHAIN OR BELT? MODEL LIST - (UPDATED 2022)

| Home / Subaru / List of Subaru Legacy Models without Timing Belt

The Subaru Legacy is a passenger car (D-segment in Europe) manufactured by the Japanese automaker Subaru. It is known as the Subaru Liberty in some countries.

This vehicle is sold in sedan and station wagon body styles. It has a longitudinal boxer engine, just like other Subaru cars such as the Impreza. It is sold with a front-wheel and with an all-wheel drive.

The Legacy / Liberty has a total of seven generations, although not all of them have been available in certain markets. Legacy’s development is closely tied to the Subaru Outback. From the fourth generation onward, the Legacy created the first station wagon versions under the name “Outback”. They were higher versions of the Legacy / Liberty with a bodywork prepared for off-road driving. After the sixth generation, the Legacy station wagon became known as Subaru Outback. It was still built on the same platform, but was sold as an independent model and took after the Outback’s original style.

The Legacy / Liberty is mainly sold in Japan and North America. It is not very popular in Europe. Some alternatives to the Legacy are the Honda Accord, the Toyota Avensis and the Mazda 6. In the European market it compites against cars such as the Peugeot 508, the Renault Talisman or the Ford Mondeo.
