A Leg’ to stand on

Subaru to show off new Legacy concept in Detroit. Looks dark…

Subaru Legacy

We’re expecting a new Subaru Legacy to arrive in 2010, but before that – at the Detroit show next month, in fact – we’ll see a concept previewing the next generation of the rural favourite.

And it’ll look a bit like this. But, with any luck, a bit less shadowy and steamy. But with the way things are doing in Detroit at the moment, we might well be reduced to emergency lighting by the time we get out there.

Anyhow. Subaru loves a moody, backlit teaser… but what can we actually tell about the new Legacy? Beyond that fact that it’ll be, y’know, a car… not a lot, in truth.

We can ignore those tiny camera-wing-mirror things – they’ll definitely be off – and look instead at those flared arches and deeper front splitter. Could be interesting. Or could end up looking like the new Impreza. Oh dear.

We’ll find out more when we see the Legacy concept in the metal at Detroit next month. It’ll be the stand with a bunch of farmers standing around and arrrr-ing enthusiastically, we assume…  

Now share it...
