OFFICIAL 2013 Legacy Thread
 
OH NOES! :eek: It's that time again! BRZ has been beat to death and orders are being placed. Redesigned 2012 Impreza has been out long enough to quiet down too.

So, it's time (just 6 months away from SOA releasing info!) to start wondering what the refresh will look like on the 2013 Legacy. No GT is almost confirmed, what else is out there?

Don't wake me up - I'm having a nice dream about my new 2013 Legacy STi. :/

No more GT?!!!

:nono::nono::nono:


I'm hoping to save up for the newly refreshed LGT

If they discontinue the GT, they really should have something to replace it.
I previously suggested elsewhere, since the GT doesn't appear to be a big seller, they should alternate models:
GT, then Spec.B, then STI

Since the GT has been offered for 2010, 2011, & 2012, skip the GT for the next two years, offer the Spec.B for 2013, & Legacy STI for 2014.

Maybe they should skip making the current body style and stick to something that isn't uglier than a man's ass. Maybe the GT would be the more attractive if it didn't look like a Camry's fat girlfriend.

I am hoping that there are minor tweaks here and there to hold us over until the complete re-design. Hopefully they decide to keep the GT in the line-up.

Have they really decided to ax the GT?

If they are going to go down the road of brand dilution, they should just make the AWD optional. Have the legacy be FWD and add an optional AWD model. This way they can advertise the higher MPG and really try to compete with the accords/camrys of the world.

well the 2010+ are just ugly looking cars. No disrespect but the younger generation wants something sporty and looks good. Not something that a old grandma drives.

^Without going into another 4th/5th Gen war but addressing the boat/grandma concerns, just look at it this way:

It's not certain but wouldn't surprise me. The WRX/STI is now a separate model from the Impreza. I could see Subaru expanding that direction with the Legacy and dropping any "sport/fun/high HP" models from the lineup. Make the consumer go to one spot within Subaru if they want anything exciting: the new WRX/STI line.

Just a thought...

Sicotic 03-08-2012 02:14 PM

^^^ I got what your saying. Hope for the best I guess.

i love me some old people suby :lol:

im hoping for the return of the legacy wagon *crosses fingers*

2010+ GT didn't sell well because they jacked up the price. If they kept the non-limited and limited class it might do better

I'm going to say that is NOT happening. Why would they get a legacy wagon when there is already an outback? Especially if they are getting rid of the GT.

And if they didn't make it only avail in a stick. It's like the perfect storm of failure for this car. It angers me too, as I am on my third Legacy GT. But for the money, I wouldn't being spending it on a new one. I'd be going luxury.
