Ottawa Auto Show: 2015 Subaru Outback and Legacy

Published on March 19 2015

There are few vehicles on the road today that can offer the open-air adventure-welcoming capabilities that Subaru’s Outback and Legacy do.

With a raised ground clearance, full-time symmetrical AWD, plenty of cargo space, and a versatile engine lineup, the 2015 Subaru Outback truly is adventure driven, and it can’t wait to go on its next journey with you. In addition, simply writing that the 2015 Subaru Legacy is the Canadian Car of the Year should be enough, but we’ll delve a little deeper into why it won such prestigious award.

AJAC (the Automotive Journalist’s Association of Canada) voted the 2015 Subaru Outback their Best New SUV/CUV (under $35k) for a reason: because it’s that good. The two available engines, a 3.6L horizontally opposed SUBARU BOXER mill (256 hp and 247 lb-ft of torque) and a 2.5L horizontally opposed 4-cyl SUBARU BOXER engine (175 horsepower and 174 lb-ft of torque), have a great deal to do with the Outback’s as well as the Legacy’s success amongst journalists and buyers alike. Performance and practicality meet in the Subaru Outback and Legacy, something you’ll recognize immediately the moment you sit behind the wheel of either vehicle.

There are three transmission choices: Lineatronic CVT, High-torque Lineatronic CVT, and a 6-speed manual transmission. Each offers great fuel efficiency and transfer the power efficiently to every wheel, keeping the Subaru Outback and Legacy on par with their promise to be the ideal family hauler and on-road performer.

The exterior look of the 2015 Subaru Outback is masculine and rugged, while also maintaining an air of class and sophistication. Its rugged good looks include standard roof rails with swing-in-place crossbars. The Outback’s design is purposefully strong and powerful, as well as aerodynamic and, yes, it’s practical.

One of the many reasons the 2015 Subaru Legacy received top honours with this year’s AJAC (Automotive Journalist’s Association of Canada) membership is due to its stunning exterior feature. Sophisticated and mature, the Legacy takes top marks for its complete redesign that gives this midsize sedan presence and purpose on the road. Featuring hawkeye headlights and a new hexagonal front grille, as well as a trunk-lip spoiler, the 2015 Subaru Legacy exudes sportiness along with practicality.

With nine available models, the 2015 Subaru Outback offers amenities like Subaru’s EyeSight Driving Assist System, along with available leather seats, Harmon Kardon 12-speaker system, 7” touchscreen multimedia system, and heated front and rear seats (depending on which model is selected).

These award-winning vehicles from Subaru have it all from performance to safety and everything in between. The Outback and Legacy are built for adventure, and you’ll want nothing more than to explore the world behind the wheel, knowing Subaru’s AWD will keep you grounded while the powerful and practical 3.6L will keep the smiles wide and the miles travelled on the open road flying by.
