Subaru of America, Inc. today introduced the 2019 Legacy now with EyeSight Driver Assist Technology as standard equipment across all trim levels. The updated midsize sedan arrives at Subaru retailers this summer.

New for 2019, Legacy comes standard with EyeSight Driver Assist Technology, which had previously been an option on most trim levels. EyeSight includes Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-Collision Braking and Throttle Management, Lane Departure Warning and Lane Keep Assist. The 2019 Legacy 2.5i is available in base, Premium, Sport and Limited trims; the 6-cylinder Legacy 3.6R is available in Limited.

The Legacy 2.5i Sport model, in addition to EyeSight, makes the Blind Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross Traffic Alert system standard for 2019.

The Legacy also features interior enhancements for 2019. The 2.5i base model gains an overhead console shower light and dual front center console USB ports. A high-grade instrument panel combination meter with 5.0-inch color LCD is now standard for all trim levels. Legacy 2.5i Premium, 2.5i Limited and 3.6R Limited trims have a standard auto-dimming rearview compass mirror with Homelink® featuring a thin-frame design.

All Legacy trim levels come standard with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and Active Torque Vectoring for confident handling in all conditions. Legacy is the only midsize sedan that makes an all-wheel drive system standard.

The Legacy 2.5i models are powered by a 175-hp 2.5-liter 4-cylinder SUBARU BOXER® engine teamed with a standard Lineartronic® CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) with manual mode and paddle shift control switches. The 3.6R model features a 256-hp 3.6-liter 6-cylinder BOXER engine and a Lineartronic CVT.
