More TCC Spy Shots
Not only does this picture give a first glimpse of the redesigned Subaru Legacy, they also confirm rumors that Subaru will offer their all-new Legacy in a hot 350-HP STi (Subaru Technica International) version to compete against cars like the Audi S4. The STi, shown in these pictures has twin tailpipes and a low stance, and is equipped with a 350-horsepower, twin-turbo version of the company’s flat-six engine, driving all four wheels in typical Subaru fashion
So far, Subaru’s hottest model is to be found one size below the Legacy – the Impreza WRX STi with just 207 hp (though a faster Legacy does exist, but is sold only in Japan and New Zealand).
The whole Legacy range will get a fresh and sleeker look, but will easily be recognizable as a new-generation Legacy. The base models will get their power from carryover 2.0- and 2.5-liter four-cylinder engines and the 3.0-liter six. Soon after the introduction of the new Legacy, Subaru will launch the firm’s first four-cylinder diesel engine, penned in-house and featuring latest common-rail technology developed in cooperation with GM partner Isuzu. Price for entry-level models is expected to start around $24,500, with the STi version (pictured here) topping off at possibly as much as $45,000.
