The OFFICIAL 2014 Legacy Thread
 
Yup... it's that time again!!!!!! :lol:

Here's my take so far: 4 Wheels, 4 Doors, nothing new but an additonal speaker or two and possibly a tailight refresh. Why? Because.

I see you 4 doors and raise you a trunk.

Getitn1 02-04-2013 09:12 AM

How many cup holders will it have? That could be the deal maker right there.

2014 Legacy Concept
 
1 Attachment(s)
I would imagine it is going to look like the concept car that they had at the shows this year. Based on the write-up in Road and Track (see below) they were talking about a 3.6, but my bet would be on 2.0L DIT with a CVT

Subaru may be pulling out of the World Rally Championship, but the Japanese company is keeping busy developing future production cars, as this Legacy Concept from the Detroit show proves.

Do you like what you see? We do. This racier-looking Legacy remains a 4-door sports sedan, an all-wheel-driver powered by a 3.6-liter flat-6 boxer engine that provides the car with a distinctive growl while helping to lower the center of gravity for improved handling.

The exterior of the Legacy Concept has a theme that Subaru calls "Presence." To that end, the Legacy Concept has a strong front design dominated by a grille with Subaru's wing motif. Around the side, dramatic wheel arches highlight the dynamism of the car's all-wheel-drive system, while design lines that flow from the hood to the roof and trunk accentuate the increased mass of the car. In addition to larger door openings for easier ingress/egress, the Legacy Concept also has side rear vision cameras.

Subaru chose "High Definition" as the interior theme of the 4-seat Legacy Concept. As such, this global mid-size sedan has an expansive feel with lots of leg room. Pearl White leather with a blue sheen covers the seats, with black metallic leather on the door panels providing a nice contrast. The center console captures lots of attention with its cylindrical shape, not to mention its large touch-panel display.

Subaru says this concept strongly suggests the styling direction of the 2010 Legacy, which will continue to be built at Subaru plants in Gunman, Japan, and in Lafayette, Indiana. For the record, some 3.6 million Legacy models have been built since 1989, the year of its inception, and the U.S. accounts for 43 percent of the production volume.

Interesting flashback. ^^^ The concept most of us loved turned into the production model most of us hated. Hopefully they won't do that again.

For 2014: They'll add a few cheap touches to make it unique, but then make it a short model year to make way for the 2015 redesign.

I can't remember where, I think it was an interview video on the web, but basically, that's not happening anytime soon.

Which we all know is a huge mistake. VW TDIs are selling really well.

Bring in at least a Outback and Forest Diesel and they would sell everyone they made.

What I would like to happen: JDM 2.0GT DIT Wagon with a manual transmission for us US people who want a fast turbo wagon.

What's probably going to happen: next to nothing.

:spin:

Fingers crossed for the 2015 redesign though!!

Attached is a little bit better picture of the concept car from that link you posted.

That ^^^ seems to be a different front end from the main pic on that page:

The main pic seems more concept-ish, whereas Picky1's pic looks more production-ish,
