A New Subaru Legacy Concept - But Will It Come To The UK?

As you know, we're fans of Subaru cars here at DriveWrite. Later next week we've got a limited edition XV attending at DW Towers for a week. The company are still remaining tight-lipped about the possible return of the WRX though. Now it looks like there'll be a new Legacy saloon in the not too distant future too.

The Subaru Legacy Concept will make its world premiere at the 2013 Los Angeles Motor Show on Wednesday 20 November, hinting at the design direction for an all-new version of Subaru’s flagship model.

Astonishingly, the Legacy will be celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2014 and currently in its fifth generation, the production Legacy has been praised the world over for its safety, dependability and driving performance as delivered by Subaru’s hallmark Boxer engines and Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system.

The design of the new Legacy Concept develops the model’s image as a dynamic, secure and practical saloon car. Its front-end features the distinctive hexagonal grille first seen on the Subaru Viziv Concept vehicle at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

While maintaining a comfortable and practical interior, the Legacy Concept also features a sleek side profile and coupe-like roof. Large wheels and bold wheel arches lend the car an air of stability, entirely appropriate for a car equipped with Subaru’s sure-footed All-Wheel Drive system.

The Legacy Concept’s interior is one of the most high-tech ever seen in a Subaru model, with a smartphone-style centre console and instrument panel that extends from the front to the rear of the cabin. With ample seating for four passengers and a sporty, driver-focused cockpit layout, the interior apparently has an impressive and solid design, with brown leather upholstery and blue accents throughout.

The concept also features the latest version of Subaru’s advanced driver assist system, ‘EyeSight’, which monitors the road ahead and recognises potentially dangerous driving situations. There is no information yet on timings for any new production model or whether the next-generation Legacy will even be coming to the UK.
