It’s hard to believe but the current-generation Subaru Legacy has just gone past its shelf life. First seen some five years ago, Subaru has ended the cycle and now introduces a new iteration of its erstwhile midsize sedan. Enter the seventh-generation 2020 Subaru Legacy.
Debuting at this year’s Chicago Auto Show, the new Legacy sports a body that is sleeker and an evolution of the current look. What’s new, however, is the platform, which is the marque’s new Global Platform that was first seen on the likes of the XV, Impreza, and new Forester. This one promises a more rigid body structure, improved handling, and a lower center of gravity.
The changes continue inside with the biggest news being the new 11.6-inch infotainment touchscreen that is found on top-trim models. It’s a portrait-styled affair that features the latest in vehicle and mobile device connectivity, allowing drivers to stay connected even while on the move. Available wifi hotspot, and other tech goodies are part of the package.
