The Legacy comes in a total of seven different trim levels. Focusing strictly on the 3.6R engine size though you have the Base, Premium, and the Limited Trims.
Every Subaru Legacy, including this trim review, comes standard with the all-wheel drive. A popular Subaru trait that doesn't go away in 2012. Also coming standard on the Subaru Legacy 3.6R Limited Sedan are automatic headlights, an eight-way power driver seat, air conditioning, cruise control, full power everything, folding rear seat, auto up/down driver window, 17-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, the All Weather package, four-way power passenger seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, power sunroof, and the above mentioned Harmon Kardon audio system. Quite an impressive list of features to take in. This is expected with the highest of the trim levels though.
On top of the already standard features on the Subaru Legacy 3.6R Limited Sedan come a few optional ones as well. These are the in-dash Navigation System package with the touchscreen, rear-view cameras, voice controls, and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror.
As for the standard safety review aspects, the Subaru Legacy 3.6R Limited Sedan has bigger anti-lock disc brakes, airbags on the front and sides, and stability and traction control. All of these work together to produce an exceptional safety standard constantly being set by almost every Subaru model available. The Subaru Legacy 3.6R Limited Sedan continues the tradition with the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety assessing a rating of Good for the vehicle review. This is one of the highest marks any vehicle can receive, and sets the 2012 Subaru Legacy 3.6R Limited Sedan at the top of its mid-size class against the competition.
Focusing the attention back on the engine reviews, the 3.6-liter v6 produces the power and speed to make the Subaru Legacy 3.6R Limited Sedan a force to be reckoned with. From zero to sixty the Legacy Limited clocks in at 7.1 seconds. A modest number that falls slightly below the total average for its class. Along with this power though comes the realization of a lower fuel economy rating. At 18 for the city, and 25 highway, this Legacy lacks in the miles per gallon department. You can also contribute this to the fact that it has the all-wheel drive attached to it lowering the numbers significantly.
