Strangely Similar Sedans: Subaru Legacy vs Chrysler 200S

When you look at the old Chrysler 200, you get a distinct urge to search for and find who signed off on its design, and then take sweet revenge for the retina scorching ugliness that they allowed.

Consumer Reports Gives the Thumbs Up to 2015 Subaru Legacy and Outback


Read more

All reviews of current Subaru models (bar the WRX STI) follow a pattern that always alludes to the non-offensive styling, the improving interior quality with some parts still looking like they’re from the early 1990s and cliché quotations about all-wheel drive, ruggedness plus the manufacturer having its own niche in the market.

Do you know how many Legacy sedans Subaru sold in the Unites States last year? The answer is 42,291 cars.

In a world where the consumer is bombarded by product after product, manufacturers and marketing gurus strive to make their products stand out much as possible. If it’s a wallflower, then the chances are that it will be left off the buyer’s radar.

In the U.S., unless you cloak station wagons as crossovers, beefing them up with taller riding suspensions, silly looking plastic moldings and fake protective gear, they have as much as a chance at success as aspiring poets….

Obviously, Subaru knew what it was doing by choosing the 2014 Chicago Auto Show for the presentation of the all-new 2015 Legacy, as it is the most, if not the only important world premiere at the McCormick Place. Whether all this attention from the press will place a positive spin on the Legacy, remains to be seen.

We've talked a lot about the new Legacy and shared all the initial details as well as a host of photos, but one thing we didn’t have until now were videos.

The general conscious on the all-new 2015 Subaru Legacy that is making its world premiere at the Chicago Auto Show seems to be that, while the crispier design is a welcome change over the more bloated styling of the model it replaces, it's disappointing that the Japanese firm wasn't bold enough to stick closer to the well-received concept from the 2013 LA show.

But it is what it is and you can freely voice your thoughts and opinions about the new Legacy in the comments below, as we delve into the technical details about the car that were released today.

How many of you were pleasantly surprised today to find out that Citroën's production C4 Cactus compact crossover stayed true to the original concept we saw last year- or if you prefer, the fact that the French thought of the box?

Now, raise your hands if similar thoughts crossed your mind when you saw the first photos of the all-new 2015 Subaru Legacy; anyone?

It only took Subaru a couple of months after displaying the Legacy Concept at the 2013 LA Auto Show in late November to tease and announce the world premiere of the production version of the mid-size sedan that will officially break cover at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show on February 6.

We have pretty much exhausted the matter on Subaru's promising concepts and disappointing production cars, so we're just going to concentrate on the new Legacy study itself in this post where we have live photos of the car from the LA Auto Show floors.

Subaru Reality Checker: Concepts vs. Production Cars

Let me tell you, when it became clear that the 2015 Subaru WRX photos circulating around the net were real, my first reaction was to chuckle and shake my head (that, and saying to myself, "oh, Subaru…" in a South Park "oh, Butters…" kind of way). I had the same reaction when Subaru presented its LA Auto Show Legacy Concept earlier this week.

Subaru's LA Show Legacy Concept Leaves False Promises for Exciting Production Model

Ladies and gentleman, meet the Subaru Legacy Concept that will make its world premiere at next week's 2013 LA Auto Show, with the Japanese carmaker stating the following: "The new LEGACY CONCEPT celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Subaru Legacy and provides a look at the styling cues for future Legacy models."

However, you know what they say; fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me… Subaru often tries to build up a lot of excitement about upcoming models with its concept cars, only to hugely disappoint with the production versions – should we remind you of the 2010 LA Auto Show Impreza and this year's WRX studies? We all know how these cars turned out

New Subaru WRX and STI Reportedly Coming to the LA Auto Show

Subaru set the expectation bar quite high this year with the release of the WRX Concept at the New York Auto Show, but subsequent sightings of prototype models testing out in the open snapped us back to the reality of the Impreza body-based WRX and WRX STI performance models. We'll still keep our fingers crossed for a future model built around the striking study…

Future Cars: Subaru Plays it Safe with New 2015 Legacy

When looking over the most recent batch of spy-photos showcasing the next generation Subaru Legacy, my first response was to head-butt the keyboard - repeatedly.

See, while the current version appears nice, it doesn't really grab one's attention and encompasses odd styling elements with its over-sized wheel arches and bulbous headlamps. Subaru had the chance to hit a home run with the upcoming 6th generation mid-sizer, however on first appearances it seems they've taken the conservative route as illustrated here.

Scoop: All-New 2015 Subaru Legacy Spotted in Outback Trim


Read more

This is our first view at the next generation Subaru Legacy, and in particular, one of the three available derivatives, the Outback, which is essentially a Legacy Wagon (not offered in the States) with a jacked up suspension and rugged, SUV-style body cladding. The other model is of course, the Legacy sedan.

If Subaru keeps its five-year product cycle, then we should see all three body styles of the 6th generation Legacy introduced in 2014 and go on sale as 2015MYs (in North America) by the middle of the year.
