2015 Subaru Legacy Photos Spill on the Web Ahead of Chicago Auto Show Debut

Images of the all-new 2015 Subaru Legacy surfaced online last night ahead of its world debut at this month’s Chicago Auto Show (February 8-17) on a number of websites and forums, including NASIOC, VWVortex and LegacyGT.

The sixth-generation Subaru Legacy may appear as a slight disappointment to those who were waiting for something similar to the daring Legacy Concept, unveiled at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show, but to those used to Subaru’s studies being irrelevant to production models, it will appear as something normal.

The new Legacy looks related to the 2015 Subaru WRX, especially at the front, where the headlights feature a similar shape. These are part of the brand’s latest design language, which also includes a prominent grille, more rounded bumpers and a sleeker roofline.

The rear end looks more aggressive than the previous model, featuring slimmer taillights and a sloping deck-lid with a spoiler-like lip. The interior features a completely new look, with a revised instrument cluster and center console that now features a better integrated touchscreen media system. The steering wheel looks more modern as well, and the dashboard appears to be better organized.

There are no official details about the car yet, but the new Legacy should be offered with the 2.0-liter and/or 2.5-liter four-cylinder boxer engines from the Impreza and Forester, as well as the new-generation turbocharged boxer engine from the WRX.

Sales of the new model should kick off later this year.
