2003 Subaru Legacy Review

2003 Subaru Legacy Review

Pros

  • All-wheel drive, a host of standard features, available as a sedan or a wagon, less expensive than many European competitors.

Cons

  • Side airbags available only on 2.5 GT models, no six-cylinder engine offered.

What's new

For 2003, Subaru has added standard equipment and slightly altered available trim levels. The previous Legacy GT and GT Limited models have been consolidated into one 2.5 GT series, with all GT Limited equipment now standard. The new 2.5 GT's optional four-speed automatic now comes with a Sportshift manual mode. To fill the void created by the GT consolidation, Subaru has created an L Special Edition Package that adds several features from the 2.5 GT. Base L models now come with a standard CD player and keyless entry. 2.5 GTs have an upgraded sound system with an in-dash six-disc CD changer. Finally, all Legacys receive slightly freshened front-end styling.
