Subaru has unveiled a new concept car at the Detroit motor show, designed to drop heavy hints as to the look of the next-generation Legacy. And because it’s a Subaru the concept features symmetrical AWD and a 3.6-litre boxer engine.

Subaru itself is fairly open, admitting the concept 'is a hint at the future of Legacy design. The design showcases the sport sedan heritage of the Subaru Legacy, but in more modern and purposeful package.'

Which in non-PR speak means the next Legacy will look a lot like this concept, but without the blistered bodykit, big wheels, wing-mounted rear-view cameras and an interior that features white leather seats contrasted by 'black metallic leather' on the door trim.

Still, the concept is a pretty good celebration of the Legacy's 20th birthday.
