Product Overview

Subaru Legacy 3 Station Wagon (chassis code BH) is a mid-size station wagon in production from 1998 to 2003. It was available with a range of flat-4 and flat-6 engines that displaced 2.0 to 2.5 liters.
Compared to the smaller Impreza, the Legacy is more elegant and spacious. Its rear suspensions are also superior. The same flat engine + symmetric AWD setup can be found here, though Subaru endowed the Legacy with more powerful engine options to cope with the increased weight.
For those who need a family car that is rather reliable and handsome, the Legacy 3 Station Wagon is a great choice. For this generation, Subaru also introduced the Outback, which is a more "offroad-y" variant.
