The 2015 Subaru Legacy B4 is a mid-size sedan produced by the Japanese car manufacturer Subaru. The 2015 Subaru Legacy is the best-equipped ever, with all trim lines adding new standard amenities. The Limited trim line models offer the highest level of luxury ever in a Subaru, including standard perforated leather upholstery; two-position memory for the 10-way power driver’s seat; a 4-way power front passenger seat; three-mode heated front seats (also standard for Premium) and dual-mode heated rear seats; rear seat air conditioning vents and a high-end surround sound audio system with 12 Harman/kardon® speakers.
The 2015 Subaru Legacy B4 is a mid-size sedan that comes in four different trim levels: 2.5i, 2.5i Premium, 2.5i Limited, and 3.6R Limited. The car has a sleek and modern design, which is enhanced by its smooth lines and sharp edges.
Design and Technology
The car features a symmetrical all-wheel drive system, which provides superior handling and stability on the road. It also comes with an Eyesight driver-assist system, which includes adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and pre-collision braking. The car also has a keyless entry system and push-button start.
Length 4,795 mm Width: 1,840 mm Height: 1,500 mm Wheelbase: 2,750 mm
The car has a total curb weight of 1,495 kg and a cargo capacity of 510 liters.
The 2015 Subaru Legacy B4 comes with two engine options:
2.5-liter four-cylinder boxer engine producing 175 horsepower and 174 lb-ft of torque
3.6-liter six-cylinder boxer engine producing 256 horsepower and 247 lb-ft of torque
Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive
Both 2015 Legacy models are equipped with a newly refined version of the Active Torque Split version of Symmetrical AWD. An electronically managed continuously variable transfer clutch actively controls torque distribution in response to driving conditions and wheel slippage. The system can send additional torque to the rear wheels either proactively or in response to slippage at the front wheels. Taking input from acceleration, steering angle, and yaw rate sensors, Active Torque Split AWD optimizes traction and steering response when accelerating through turns and curves, particularly when the road surface is slippery.
The 2.5i and 2.5i Premium come with a six-speed manual transmission as standard, while the 2.5i Limited and 3.6R Limited come with a Lineartronic continuously variable transmission (CVT).
Performance and Consumption
The 2.5-liter engine has a fuel consumption rate of 12.6 km/L in the city and 16.7 km/L on the highway.
The 3.6-liter engine has a fuel consumption rate of 9.8 km/L in the city and 13.2 km/L on the highway. The car can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 7.8 seconds with the 2.5-liter engine and in 6.7 seconds with the 3.6-liter engine.
The car has received a five-star overall safety rating from the Japan New Car Assessment Program (JNCAP). The car comes with safety features such as airbags, ABS brakes, stability control, and traction control.
The EyeSight® driver-assist system option for Premium and Limited trim models, integrates Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-Collision Braking, and Vehicle Lane Departure Warning. EyeSight, which uses Subaru-developed stereo camera technology, is the highest-rated front crash prevention system by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The 2015 Legacy is projected to achieve the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ award.
Overall, the 2015 Subaru Legacy B4 is one of the best mid-size sedans in Kenya and is a reliable and safe mid-size sedan with advanced technology and excellent handling capabilities. Its fuel-efficient engine and symmetrical all-wheel drive make it an ideal car for daily commutes and long road trips. However, its slightly lower fuel economy with the 3.6-liter engine may be a concern for some drivers.
