Will the Pricier 2018 Subaru Legacy Offer More for Stamford Drivers?
The 2018 Legacy is going to be seeing some updates and a facelift for the new model-year; and drivers in the Stamford area who’ve been waiting to upgrade might be jumping at the opportunity.
The longest-lasting midsize sedan in its class will cost about $240 more than its previous model-year, but what it brings with it will more than make up for the modest price bump. The 2018 Subaru Legacy should be arriving at Garavel sometime this summer, and–with local deals and brand incentives–could be an easy upgrade from your current monthly payments.
What’s New for 2018?
The biggest changes come in style andtechnology–we can assume that performance won’t change too much until the Legacy adopts the new platform sometime in 2019 or 2020; however, suspension, power steering, and braking have been revised and retuned to smooth out the Legacy’s performance even further.
The interior has been revamped for a more premium look and feel, and the cabin will be quieter when driving at high speeds; the center console sees a fresh new redesign, the display swells a little bit to 6.5 inches and now supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard. An 8-inch screen is available on higher trim levels for a broader view of your apps and media.
The question is: is it worth the new, higher price? We–and plenty of other Subaru fans–say yes.
But if you can’t wait around for the refreshed model to be released, we do have plenty of new sedans in stock today–and you might find that the 2019 Legacy outpaces the 2019 Honda Accord. You can also build an affordable Subaru Legacy lease and be ready to upgrade when the new generation lands in a few years.
