The Legacy wagon joins the Legacy sedan and the Outback to complete Subaru's best-selling line of vehicles. What all of these models share is the precise handling of all-wheel drive, a thorough set of safety features and an overall build quality that is second to none. The Legacy wagon is a car with the right set of characteristics for families, including roominess and comfort, as well as all the aforementioned qualities for which Subaru is so well known.

Available Models
The 2003 Subaru Legacy wagon is offered in three trim levels: L, L Special Edition and GT. The Legacy sedan is covered in a separate review.

Up front, the wagon has over 40 inches of head and legroom, while the rear has slightly less. In addition, the total cargo volume for the Legacy wagon is 68.6 cubic ft.

The standard features on the base L model cover all the basic needs for a vehicle and then some.

Performance
The Legacy wagon shares the same engine with the sedan. It is a horizontally opposed 2.5-liter model capable of 165 horsepower at 5600 rpm and 166 lb-ft. of torque at 4000 rpm. The Legacy wagon's suspension system is fully independent, featuring front struts with lower L-arms and liquid-filled rear bushings and a stabilizer bar. The rear is a multi-link system with a stabilizer bar.

Like the sedan, the wagon has rack-and-pinion steering with engine-speed-sensing variable power assist. Customers can choose between 4-speed automatic transmission and 5-speed manual transmission.
