Subaru Legacy Concept
Detroit, Michigan – Subaru of America has revealed the 2009 Subaru Legacy Concept at the North American International Auto Show. The company said the concept is “a hint at the future of Legacy design,” and showcases the Legacy’s sport sedan heritage, but in a more modern and purposeful package.
Marking the 20th anniversary of the Subaru Legacy, the Legacy Concept is based on a longer wheelbase, and carries through its “Presence” concept design with an aggressive front fascia, solid body, powerful wheel arches, sharp design lines, and wedge-shaped side rear vision cameras. The grille design incorporates a central wing motif that defines the Legacy’s Subaru brand identity.
The interior follows a “High Definition” design theme with touch-screens, cameras and modern surface coverings, with a specially-created steering wheel and shift lever that accentuate the sporty nature.
The Legacy was first introduced globally in 1989 and is currently produced in Japan and Lafayette, Indiana. As of November 2008, total global production has exceeded 3.6 million vehicles.
