2010 Subaru Legacy Trims

2.5GT Limited

Avg. Price: $22,260

The 2010 Subaru Legacy's seats were jealous of the leather-wrapped tilt and telescoping steering wheel, so they’re leather as well in the 2.5GT Limited. The passenger seat was jealous of the 10-way power of the driver’s bucket, so now the passenger gets 4-way power and both are heated, enough to placate but not to usurp authority. In the name of bipartisanship, dual-zone climate controls have been added, and to drown out any further complaints, the stereo has been upgraded to a 6-CD Harman Kardon unit, although secondary controls are presented to the driver on the steering wheel, to preserve the captain’s control. Speaking of the balance of power, the 2.5-liter boxer four is now turbocharged and comes solely with the option of a six-speed manual transmission. The Legacy 2.5GT Limited also features a sport-tuned suspension and 18-inch alloy wheels. Heated power mirrors, power windows, and power door locks and remote keyless entry are all included, as well as daytime running lights and automatic headlights. Safety features include traction control, a hill-holder clutch, four-wheel antilock disc brakes, an anti-skid system, and dual front, front-side, and curtain-side airbags.

2.5GT Premium

Avg. Price: $19,897

The 2.5GT Premium brings forced aspiration to the table in the form of a turbocharged version of the 2010 Subaru Legacy's 2.5-liter boxer four, but here you can only have the six-speed automatic. However, you’ll also get a sport suspension and 18-inch alloy wheels, and for a bit of luxury, how about heated front seats, with the driver getting 10-way power. There are also heated power mirrors and a wiper de-icer, although air conditioning is included in case you’re hot rather than cold. The seats are cloth, but the tilt and telescoping steering wheel is wrapped in leather and holds controls for the CD and MP3 player with digital-media player connection. You’ll also get power windows and doors and remote keyless entry. Safety features include daytime running lights, automatic headlights, traction control, and a hill-holder clutch, as well as four-wheel antilock disc brakes, an anti-skid system, and six standard airbags.

2.5i

Avg. Price: $14,241

The 2010 Subaru Legacy 2.5i offers a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with the buyer’s choice of a six-speed manual or a continuously variable transmission (CVT). All Legacy trims come with all-wheel drive (AWD), a hill-holder clutch, and traction control. Front bucket and split-folding rear seats are upholstered in cloth, and while none are power, the driver gets height adjustability at least. There are power mirrors, windows, and door locks, as well as remote keyless entry and automatic headlights. A tachometer and trip computer are standard, and so are illuminated visor mirrors, an outside-temperature indicator, and daytime running lights. The CD/MP3 player has a digital media connection as well. 16-inch wheels come with wheel covers and four-wheel antilock disc brakes. The driver also gets a tilt and telescoping steering wheel, and everyone enjoys air conditioning. Safety features aren’t lacking even at this base trim level, with dual front, front-side, and curtain-side airbags, an anti-skid system, and daytime running lights.

2.5i Limited

Avg. Price: $17,539

There’s a surprising amount of luxury in the 2010 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Limited for what is still powered by the base 2.5-liter boxer four, with a choice of a six-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Heated leather front bucket seats offer 4-way power to the driver, and with heated power mirrors and a wiper de-icer, it seems nothing will ever be cold again. Dual-zone automatic climate controls make sure of it. Alloy wheels are now 17 inches, and the leather-wrapped steering wheel now matches the upholstery. A Harman Kardon 6-CD and MP3 player offers Bluetooth here and has controls on the tilt/telescoping steering wheel. Power features include windows and door locks, remote keyless entry, and automatic headlights. Daytime running lights are also included, along with illuminated visor mirrors, a trip computer, and an outside temperature indicator. Its safety features include four-wheel antilock disc brakes, anti-skid, traction control, a hill-holder clutch, and six standard airbags.

2.5i Premium

Avg. Price: $15,299

From the outside, the only difference you’ll notice with the 2010 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Premium over the base trim is the addition of 16-inch alloy wheels. Powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, you get a choice of a six-speed manual or CVT. Still upholstered in cloth, the driver’s bucket now gets 10-way power with lumbar adjustment, and the tilt and telescoping steering wheel is now leather-wrapped and holds controls for the CD and MP3 player, which has a connection integrated for digital-media players. Power features include windows, doors, and mirrors, as well as remote keyless entry. There are daytime running lights and automatic headlights, and illuminated visor mirrors if we’re tallying everything that’s bright. Air conditioning, a tachometer and trip computer, and an outside-temperature indicator await passengers. Safety features include traction control, a hill-holder clutch, four-wheel antilock disc brakes, anti-skid, and six standard airbags.

3.6R

1 national listing
Avg. Price: $17,553

In the base trim offering a boxer-six engine, the 2010 Subaru Legacy 3.6R comes with a five-speed shiftable automatic transmission. Otherwise, the big brother of the Legacy lineup is identical to the base 2.5i trim, with cloth, powerless front bucket seats, a list of power features including mirrors, windows, locks, and remote keyless entry. A trip computer and illuminated visor mirrors are standard, along with a tilt/telescoping steering wheel and air conditioning. There’s a digital media player connection for the CD and MP3 player, but no controls on the steering wheel. Safety is handled well with traction control, a hill-holder clutch, an anti-skid system, daytime running lights, automatic headlights, and six standard airbags.
