Gallery: This is the new 2020 edition Subaru Legacy

2020 Subaru Legacy Liberty

In more detail, we're looking at a 2.4-liter boxer mill making 260 hp and 277 lb-ft of twist routed through a Lineartronic CVT.

Other models will employ a "thoroughly revised" version of the brand's familiar naturally aspirated 2,5-litre, four-cylinder boxer unit, now churning out 136 kW and 239 N.m.

For the most part, the exterior of the seventh-gen Legacy is not unlike that of the previous generation with minimal changes made.

With the first the new Subaru Legacy accelerates to 97 km/h in 6.1 seconds.

The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta regained its hotness at the Chicago Auto Show on Thursday. Navigation is optional on the three lesser trims. Quite the contrary. We've seen updates to several models in recent times and now it's giving a complete makeover to its flagship sedan.

A Subaru Australia spokesperson has told GoAuto that "our current Liberty still has a considerable time to run, and at this stage, we have no information on future timelines". "Wider fenders emphasize tire and wheel presence, while a frameless hexagonal grille and a lower grille intake that is molded to evoke the image of an aircraft add width and sportiness to the Legacy's aggressive stance". Subaru claims its new mid-sizer is 70-per-cent stiffer in torsional and front suspension rigidity, and 100-per-cent stiffer in front lateral and rear subframe rigidity than the existing auto, which bodes well for crash safety, as well as dynamic ability. Subaru says that the interior is refined, and the new Touring trim gets genuine Nappa leather. For the rear, a double-wishbone layout with subframe is used together with coil springs and a new 19 mm hollow stabilizer bar.


The Kia Sportage is getting its first update since the current generation's debut for the 2017 model year, and it's a relatively subtle one.

All but the base Legacy feature the largest infotainment screen on a mainstream mid-size sedan. Instead, it uses a pair of a 7.0-inch displays-one for audio and one for climate controls- and it too features standard Apple and Android compatibility.

Inside, the dashboard is dominated by a 11.6-inch Full HD touchscreen: it'll be standard on the Premium, Sport, and Limited trims.

On the safety side, EyeSight Driver Assist Technology is standard across the 2020 Legacy range. A DriverFocus Distraction Mitigation System is also optional on Limited and standard on both XT trims, which uses a camera and facial recognition software to detect driver fatigue. Safety is also boosted thanks to the new platform. This system will be especially useful when entering traffic where the view of passing cars is partially blocked, such as by parallel-parked vehicles.

Pricing will be announced closer to the official sales launch of the 2020 Subaru Legacy next autumn.
