The next-generation Subaru Legacy will take inspiration from the Subaru WRX concept that was shown at the New York motor show earlier this year.

These photographs, captured during the vehicle’s development programme in Michigan, show a rectangular grille, swept-back headlights, a C-shaped signature in the rear lights and a more coupé-like profile than the current model. 

The car was seen testing alongside an Audi Allroad and an Infiniti G37x, which strongly suggests the new car will retain a four-wheel drive configuration as standard. 

Little is known about the engine line-up, but it is likely an evolution of the current car’s diesel boxer engine will spearhead the range in Europe. Reports suggest the current 2.5-litre petrol engine will remain, and be offered alongside the 2.0-litre turbocharged engine from the Forester

Six-speed manual gearboxes will be offered alongside Lineartronic CVT units.

A hybrid version is tipped to be offered for the first time as part of Subaru’s Motion-V commitment to improve fuel efficiency by 30 per cent. The Legacy will also receive Subaru’s Eyesight crash avoidance technology.

The 2015 Subaru Legacy is expected to be revealed next year, with sales beginning in 2015.

How?

How can you tell that it is a new Subaru legacy?

It looks pretty much like the next generation chevrolet Cruze at the front, it was also seen masked but the lines looks the same...

Who buys these anymore??

whenever subaru bring out a new model it seems like its about three model cycles behind everyone else. They either need to do some big changes though the whole range or just give up. Surely the few who brought and legacy are the sort who will now be driving four wheel drive octavias and superbs.
