2002 Subaru Legacy Review

An attractive vehicle for families because of its safety ratings and great handling.

Reviewed by Automotive on

Overview

The 2002 Subaru Legacy sells as a sedan or wagon and offers consumers a great option for a vehicle with all-wheel drive and good gas mileage. It draws power from a 2.5-liter four-cylinder. It comes in three different trim levels: L, GT, and GT Limited.

The Range

Body Styles: sedan, wagon
Engines: 2.5-liter four-cylinder
Transmissions: five-speed manual, four-speed automatic
Models: Subaru Legacy L sedan, Subaru Legacy GT sedan, Subaru Legacy GT Limited sedan, Subaru Legacy L wagon, Subaru Legacy GT wagon

What's New

The 2002 Subaru Legacy shows only minor changes for this model year. The GT Limited gets an All-Weather Package that features heated front seats, heated outside mirrors, and a deicer for the windshield wiper. The GT adds larger front brakes, standard floor mats, wood grain-patterned door switch trim, and a new illumination ring for the ignition.

Exterior

The 2002 Subaru Legacy offers an attractive sedan or wagon, with the GT adding a bit of sportiness. It comes in three sedan trim lines: the L, GT, and GT Limited. Two wagons, the L and GT, add to the list. All of them feature all-wheel drive. The GT receives limited-slip differential, larger wheels, a power sunroof, and a sport suspension.

Interior

The interior of the 2002 Subaru Legacy feels roomy and offers supportive seats for five occupants. Air-conditioning, cruise control, power windows, and power locks come standard. The GT also gets a six-way power driver's seat. The GT Limited adds side-impact airbags along with leather upholstery and an upgraded audio system.

The Legacy's rear seatback does not fold down for more cargo area. It includes a small pass-through section into the trunk, however. Cargo area totals 12.4 cubic feet.

Performance & Handling

With all four wheels of the 2002 Subaru Legacy receiving power, it feels more stable than a two-wheel-drive car on wet and wintry roads. On dry roads, the Legacy offers a lot of fun with its cooperative suspension and precise steering. To max out the fun level, get behind the wheel of the GT with the five-speed manual transmission.

Safety

Subaru attracts families with its high crash-test ratings for the 2002 Legacy. It offers anti-lock brakes and the GT Limited incorporates side-impact airbags.
