New Subaru Legacy revealed – but it’s not coming to the UK

The new Subaru Legacy (pictured) has been revealed in Chicago

The new Subaru Legacy was teased last week ahead of its reveal at the Chicago Auto Show, and now it’s been revealed it’s a bit…disappointing. It’s disappointing because it has really lost the flair and swoopy style of the new Legacy Concept we saw at the L.A. Auto Show in November, replacing it with a slightly rakish traditional saloon.

Subaru say the new Legacy is both muscular and agile, with its statement front end, more raked windscreen and a new hexagonal grill.

The new Legacy has changed little inside, but Subaru say the thinner doors and relocated A-Pillar has added more room to a cabin that is now more comfortable and more sporty in nature.

There have also been tweaks under the skin with tweaks to the suspension to make it less prone to roll with steering ride and dynamics that are the match of cars a class above.

In the US, the new Legacy will get the 2.5 litre petrol with 173bhp or the 254bhp 3.6 litre six-cylinder, both of which come with a six-speed CVT box and trademark four-wheel-drive.

The new Subarua Legacy will launch later in 2014 in the US as a 2015 model, but Subaru has no plans to bring it to the UK.

Instead, we will get a production version of the Subaru Levorg Concept as the new Subaru Legacy Tourer.
