Subaru Legacy L
has a long history of affordability and reliability—but it’s not known for its power or prowess, especially when fitted with the standard four-cylinder engine.
The Legacy has seen plenty of changes throughout its 30+ year run, starting as a station wagon and morphing into the chic midsize sedan it is today. The Legacy is known for its simple and sensible design, offered in both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. 
The L trim was available on models between 1991 and 2004, and it only came equipped with a four-cylinder engine. However, the highest trim on 2016 through 2019 models camewith the option for a six-cylinder engine—but it’s a flat-six rather than a V6.
