    Subaru reveals coupe-like 2015 Legacy Concept ahead of LA show

    Subaru reveals coupe-like 2015 Legacy Concept ahead of LA show - Autoblog

    Subaru has pulled the covers off its 2015 Legacy Concept before the car's debut at the LA Auto Show next week. The sedan trades in its relatively staid styling for a more aggressive, coupe-like design that almost makes us forget about the rear doors from some angles. Overall, the Legacy looks beefier than your average Subaru, similar to the Ford Taurus.

    The concept's character line stretches all the way back to a small trunk, which helps the car achieve its coupe-like appearance. But the front end makes the biggest impression, with "hawk-eye" headlamps and a gaping hexagonal grille with three horizontal slats. The taillights have a shape similar to the headlamps to "enhance the solidity of the overall design," Subaru says.

    Custom paint called Ocean Silver Metallic adorns the concept, which sports 21-inch wheels under bulging wheel arches that Subaru says hints at the standard all-wheel-drive system (the BRZ is the only two-wheel-drive Subie).

    Head below for the press release, and be sure to check in next week for more information (and photos) of the Legacy Concept live from the LA Auto Show.

    I'm beginning to wonder if Subaru snagged someone from the Ford design team. Like the guy who drew the Taurus.

    Wouldn't be the first time this was alleged http://jalopnik.com/was-the-subaru-s...len-1037305131

    This just seems like an evolution of the 2012 Advanced Tourer Concept. Very similar grill and light features.

    Absolutely! Ever heard of the Exiga? It's a Japanese MPV in the same vein as the Toyota Wish or Mazda5. It seats 7 people, it's offered in NA and 2.0T models, and there was even an STI version. Like many of Subaru's JDM cars, AWD is an option, but comes standard on the turbo model.
