New JDM Subaru Legacy B4 2.5GT tS [as in Tuned by STI]

|

Subaru's in-house tuning arm STI has added some flair to the latest generation of the Japanese market Legacy B4 sedan and its Touring Wagon brethren. The limited production Legacy 2.5GT tS (Subaru talk for Tuned by STI) models come with various cosmetic and performance enhancements, but unfortunately, no upgrades to the 2.5-liter flat-four turbo engine.

The list of performance goodies includes a Bilstein suspension, strut tow bars, sport exhaust system, and 18-inch multispoke alloy wheels shod in 225/45 R18 rubber.

On the outside, STI's team added a front lip spoiler on both models, along with a discreet boot lid spoiler for the B4 sedan and a roof spoiler for the Touring Wagon.

More attention was paid to the interior of the Legacy 2.5GT tS models as both variants get a revised instrument panel, sport seats dressed in alcantara and leather with contrasting red seams, decorative carbon trim in a titanium finish, STI leather steering wheel and gearbox lever with red seams and of course how can we forget, STI-branded floor mats.

In Japan, the sedan model starts from 4,029,900 Yen (around $44,190) and the Touring Wagon from 4,187,400 Yen (around $45,920).

Turd is fairly harsh in this situation,don't you think?Yes,the styling is a step backwards compared to the previous gen.,but the fact of the matter is this car is still the most dynamically superior yet underrated car in the class.IN my opinion,when compared with the similarly priced Camry,Accord,Sonata,Altima,and whatever rubbish the American automakers think can actually compete in this class,the only real demerit this car has is the fact the exterior could of been so much better...

I will not waste time talking about an illiterate posted. On to the car... it looks great! I like everything about the design. Not overdone. I only wish for engine upgrades, too. In time perhaps. Still a winner, and it has AWD!

It IS a turd and it's low sales figures reflect it as a non-starter/non-relevent product in it's segment.

Even the yanks can do better.

If you are sorry that you can't polish a turd, then you can go and smell it.

this legacy looks sweet!

Though I'm definitely seeing the influence from BMW with the rear taillights. :)
