2020 Subaru Legacy teaser

Among the many mid-sized sedans still being produced, I always forget to mention the Subaru Legacy.

It has never really been popular in the US. But Subaru is not giving up on it.
And, a new Legacy also means a new Outback is coming very soon.
While they only sold about 40 000 units of the Legacy last year, (which is still about 10 000 more than the Mazda 6!) Outback numbers were much better with almost 179 000.

What we see here is a teaser of the all-new interior. Which will also end up in the Outback.
And it does look nice and quite an improvement over the current super blocky look.

The base engine will probably be the familiar 2.5 Liter.
But that new generation could mark the end of the creamy smooth 3.6 Liter V6.
Which could be replaced by the Turbo version of the 2.5 Liter (Used in the Ascent)
That's really too bad...


More on this very soon, since it will be at the Chicago auto show in just a few days.

If they get the exterior design right, then perhaps this car will finally be on the map again.

If they gave up on it, where would Toyota make it's oversupply of crappy camrys?

Interesting center stack, love the tablet integration into the entire central dashboard. This is what the Tesla interior should have looked like.

The dash looks like its taking a page of the Volvo playbook.

Ok.

Subaru makes some of the most meh-inducing cars. Interior isn't looking all that special...

I'm really liking that piano black plastic in I see in the interior. It's so original and looks so stylish, and we all know style is what Subaru buyers ooze the most.
I mean, who among us has not pulled up to a Subaru and dreamed of being the person behind the wheel?
