We're only two shows into the auto show cycle and already Subaru's had a big year. Back at November's L.A. auto show, Subaru released the new 2015 WRX alongside the Legacy Concept. Detroit saw Subaru bring out the 2015 WRX STI, and now we've got confirmation of what the Japanese automaker has got planned for next week's Chicago Auto Show – the 2015 Subaru Legacy.
The first of what we're sure are many teasers of
the 2015 Subaru Legacy hit the web today. As with most teaser images,
all one can really confirm is that the next-gen Legacy will sport
headlights, and some windows to see out of. From what we can tell, the
2015 Legacy will likely have production versions of the concept's
Hawkeye headlights and taillights, and door handles – something
curiously absent from the show car. The swept-back roofline of the
Legacy Concept looks like it'll also remain, though the production car
looks to have a less extreme rake, likely boosting rear passenger
Powertrain options for the 2015 Legacy aren't known yet, but we wouldn't be surprised to see the 2014 Forester's
170-hp 2.5-liter F-4 serving as the base engine, and the Forester XT's
250-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged F-4 serving as the range-topper. A hybrid
powertrain, possibly using the 2014 XV Crosstrek's 160-hp unit, is also a possibility.
