New Subaru Legacy concept goes to Detroit

Subaru Legacy concept fq

The Detroit Auto Show is now under way over in the States with concept cars being eagerly shown off. Sitting among the legions of American metal is the latest incarnation of the Subaru Legacy. The new Legacy concept is sporting what is likely to be the new face of the Legacy, complete with funky-shaped headlamp lenses and a burly new nose. According to Subaru, that paint colour is called “Ultimate Silver” and the overall design theme is “High Definition,” for what that’s worth. Power comes from the automaker’s 3.6L six-cylinder boxer engine mated to an AWD system.

Inside, it’s loaded with technology, with a multitude of displays available to the four occupants, including the driver. The instrument panel gets a multifunction touchscreen display instead of a traditional centre control stack and super small side mirrors house cameras that display the cars side view in the rear view mirror. Rear passengers get their headrest-mounted LCD screens and their own touchscreen control interface. Away from the obvious show-car technology, the basic shape and interior layout are likely to make it into the production car when it is eventually debuted.
