Subaru Legacy Concept debuts in Los Angeles

By Bob Nagy on November 14, 2013 11:22 AM

Celebrating a quarter century of its primo Legacy model as well as offering an early look at a design direction the next generation may adopt, the Subaru Legacy Concept makes its world debut at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show. Trimmed in Ocean Silver Metallic paint, this striking 4-door one-off embraces a decidedly sleek coupe-like character with a sweeping glass roof that resolves into a short deck lid set. Its sporting profile is set off by strong shoulder and sill lines complemented by unique 21-inch alloy wheels wrapped in Z-rated 265/40 performance tires that nestle beneath its prominently flared fenders.

Both the nose and tail treatments of the Subaru Legacy Concept also push the boundaries of convention to new levels and recall the look and feel of the design language presented in the WRX Concept that was shown earlier this year in New York. The front fascia has a three-dimensional character dominated by the automaker's signature hexagonal grille form, here filled with three horizontal bars. This potential face of tomorrow also features even edgier renditions of Subaru's "hawkeye" headlamps/running lamps and prominent lower and side air intakes. The rear fascia reprises that 3D character with its own interpretation of the hex-look contours and hawkeye-style taillamps.

Finished in supple brown leather trimmed with blue accents, the cabin of the Subaru Legacy Concept features four individually heated/cooled seats and a full-length floor console. In addition to a large multifunction touchscreen positioned in the center of the dash, rear-seat passengers also have access to a supplemental information display. 

Subaru has not yet released any information on what's beneath the hood of the Legacy Concept. However, it has confirmed that the car is fitted with a Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system. In addition to conventional safety features, the Legacy Concept also is fitted with the automakers latest "EyeSight" advanced driver assist system.
