For a long while, Subaru has played on the fringe of the luxury auto market. But like a lot of automakers, they aren’t shying away from snagging a piece of the higher end market. The automaker has had some nice vehicles in the past couple of years, such as the Impreza and XV Crosstek. Now comes the update of the Legacy. From the concept photos, Subaru has crafted a sleek, clean, muscular car. There are sharp edges, a low stance, flared fenders and an aggressively designed front grille.
The 2015 Legacy Concept is looking to stand up and be noticed. Of course, concept vehicles often are softened up once put to production. But if the Legacy can retain the sporty concept elements and mesh it with exceptional performance, they may turn some heads in the luxury market.
