If you’re in the market for a used car, you can do far worse than the 2014 Subaru Legacy. With the market prices for used vehicles going down, the model represents an excellent deal. A leading used-car price tracking company noted that prices for used cars as of August 2014 were at their fourth consecutive month of decline, and an economic rebound points to higher demand for vehicles.
A closer look at the Legacy’s specs is warranted if your plans for the vehicle involve taking your loved ones around. Legacies manufactured in 2014 boast of spacious interiors, wide windows with minimal blind spots, and heated seats, particularly in the upper trims like the 3.6R Limited. Larger cargo space, adjustable seating, and armrests also add to the breathing room.
Like everything else in Subaru’s lineup save the BRZ, the 2014 Legacy also packs Standard All-Wheel Drive, Vehicle Dynamics Control, and the Traction Control System, which helps keep the car stable on the road at speed. The Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission system can also be added as an optional component.
Subaru’s vaunted four-cylinder Boxer engine powers all Legacies, apart from a six-cylinder affair on the 3.6R Limited. Their power output ranges from 148 horsepower on the standard two-liter EJ to 296hp on the two-liter turbo FA20 engine; on the other hand, the 3.6R’s 3.6-liter engine fires out 256hp.
