2010 Subaru Legacy headed for New York

With the rumour mill working in overtime about the new 2010 Subaru Legacy, it’s now expected to make its debut at the New York Auto Show next month. The new Legacy will take several design cues from the concept car (pictured) shown in Detroit, including yet another nose-job that’s likely to filter through to the rest of the Subaru line-up in the coming years.

Apparently, the 2010 model will be available with a four-cylinder (likely a 2.5-litre with a upgraded turbo), with a choice of either a six-speed manual or a CVT gearbox. GT Premium and Limited trims will be available, along with an electric parking brake, 18-inch wheels, six new colors, iPod interface and Bluetooth connectivity. A double-wishbone suspension is expected to be fitted at the rear and cargo capacity is expected to grow substantially. Also, it’s rumored that both the new Legacy and Outback will be 3.6-inches wider than the outgoing model, with an additional four inches of rear-seat legroom but theres no word yet on total length.

If the 2010 Subaru Legacy does appear at the New York show, expect global sales to begin later in the year, with the Outback model following shortly thereafter.
