Subaru has announced that it will point to the future of its mid-size Legacy Sedan, with the appropriately named Legacy Concept, at the Los Angeles Auto Show later this month. The show car will celebrate the model’s 25th anniversary and point to the look of the next-generation 2015 Subaru Legacy, which is expected sometime in calendar year 2014.
The new Subaru model delivers more excitement in driving and more comfort for the passengers. In addition it is equipped with the new generation Horizontally-Opposed Boxer engine, thanks to which the fuel economy is improved.The exterior design of the vehicle conveys stability and confidant stance. This is probably due to the headlamps with the motif common with other Subaru vehicles and a hexagon grille.
Specifications on the engine are yet to be mentioned. The overall exterior measurements have been announced though, with a length of 4930mm, a width of 1940mm, and a height of 1500mm. The concept also features 21-inch alloy wheels.
Underneath, the Legacy's structure was stiffened at a few key points for added rigidity. A larger diameter rear sway bar and increased spring and damper rates and stiffer bushings are said to quell body roll by up to 40 percent. The tweaks result in more responsive handling dynamics while preserving the outgoing model's cushy and comfortable ride.
