Subaru has announced that it will point to the future of its mid-size Legacy Sedan, with the appropriately named Legacy Concept, at the Los Angeles Auto Show later this month.
The show car will celebrate the model’s 25th anniversary and point to the look of the next-generation 2015 Subaru Legacy, which is expected sometime in calendar year 2014.
The Legacy is a particularly important car for Subaru as it—and especially the Outback, which originated as a Legacy variant—arguably started in the 1990s the resurgence and upward sales trends that have allowed the brand to grow from a minor niche player to a major-league import brand, with growth year after year.
An earlier glimpse of the concept teased that it will have a more coupe-like silhouette; this full look reveals that it has a more expressive design than the current models, with flared wheel arches; a more blunt, chiseled front end; and some of the chiseled, scooped-out details of the Forester 2.0XT. A character line flows from the sides into the rear deck and to the taillights, which follow a new ‘hawk-eye’ headlamp look for the brand (reiterated by the taillights).
