Subaru set to unveil new 2015 Legacy Concept at LA Auto Show


Subaru is set to premiere the 2015 Legacy Concept (their words) at the LA Auto Show that is a thinly veiled look at the next Legacy. Add door handles, smaller wheels, and less aggressive front and rear lower valances and you should just about have it. The concept's design is the latest in the four-door coupe idiom and the new gront grille will be showing up on future Subies. The styling is a little derivative with the side view (pic after the jump) looking almost like an Accord Coupe and the new front fascia shares a similar visage with the upcoming Hyundai Genesis. None of those are necessarily bad things and the new Legacy should be a looker, especially since Subaru manages to take designs from the concept stage to the road with fewer changes than most manufacturers. No info was given about the drivetrain, but then who cares since the real thing is right around the corner. More to come...

Press Release:
2015 SUBARU LEGACY CONCEPT TO MAKE WORLD DEBUT AT LOS ANGELES AUTO SHOW


Cherry Hill, N.J. - Subaru of America, Inc. announced today it will debut the Subaru LEGACY CONCEPT at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show. The new LEGACY CONCEPT celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Subaru Legacy and provides a look at the styling cues for future Legacy models.

Adorned with a custom Ocean Silver Metallic paint scheme, the LEGACY CONCEPT features a more coupe-like silhouette. The LEGACY CONCEPT is a modern interpretation of the Legacy and features a more distinguished front design with a new hexagonal grille and a sharper hawk-eye headlamp design.

Flared wheel arches cover 21-inch wheels and hint at the standard Subaru Symmetrical all-wheel drive drivetrain. A pronounced character line flows into the short rear deck and ends in the rear tail lamps. The tail lamps echo the hawk-eye headlamp design and enhance the solidity of the overall design.
