This week the much anticipated, 2015 Subaru Legacy was unveiled at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show. Some are saying the unveiling of the new-look Legacy was “the most significant vehicle introduction” of the show! You can watch the unveiling by clicking here.
We could not be more excited to get these 2015 Legacy’s on our lot.
We will post more info on the new Legacy, in regards to specs, pictures and availability as that information arrives. In the meantime, here is what we know now:
From the New York Daily News:
Subaru says it is the roomiest Legacy ever with the largest passenger compartment in the midsize segment. All-wheel drive and the flat 2.5-liter four-cylinder and 3.6-liter six-cylinder engines return, but Subaru has improved fuel economy thanks to standard active front grille shutters, improved aerodynamics, and a continuously variable automatic transmission for both engines. The four-cylinder will return 36 mpg on the highway and the six will deliver 28 highway mpg.
Handling will be aided by quicker ratio steering and electronic torque vectoring that applies the brake to the inside front wheel in turns . More standard amenities, improved interior materials, and more standard equipment will give the 2015 Legacy an upscale feel. Watch for it this summer.
From MSN Autos:
The 2015 Legacy features a host of new safety tech, including rear radar with blind spot detection, lane change assist, rear cross-traffic alert as well as an upgraded EyeSight driver assistance system.
Both the 4- and 6-cylinder engines carry over from the last Legacy; however, the 2.5-liter boxer engine is updated to be lighter and quieter while running more efficiently. Power is up slightly to 175 horsepower, while fuel-economy improves to 26 mpg city/36 mpg highway.
Although the 2015 Legacy is about the same size as the outgoing model, the interior is roomier with more rear legroom as well as a larger trunk. Subaru claims occupants should find the ride smoother and quieter, with improved handling, thanks to a revised suspension, standard 17-inch wheels and vehicle dynamic control with active torque vectoring — first introduced on the high-performance WRX.
Like we said above, stay tuned for more info regarding the 2015 Subaru Legacy. We will post the information here on our blog, www.subarusaltlake.com as well as our dealer site, www.natewade.com.
