Created to showcase the potential future of Subaru designs, the Legacy Concept was unveiled at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit. This concept comes exactly 20 years after the Subaru Legacy – the company’s most successful model – was first brought to market.

Strong and powerful lines make up the general design of the vehicle and give it a more resounding presence. The “Ultimate Silver” color helps to highlight the different features – especially the large fenders.

Sharp angles are everywhere on the Legacy Concept with large air ducts up front, rectangular exhaust pipes and chunky five-spoke wheels.

A new headlight design, featuring LED bulbs in both circular and stacked rows, is similar enough to the current headlight design – a sign that this aspect of the concept is likely to be carried over to the upcoming production model.

In terms of a drivetrain/powertrain combo, the Legacy Concept features Subaru’s famous Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system and a 3.6-liter Boxer engine.

Inside, the cabin features touch screen controls and an interior designed for four adults.
