They made it more vanilla like the Camcordtima so it will sell better.

UGH
Tell me about it. A better question is WTF happened to Subaru..
The 2005 Legacy/Liberty was high quality car that also looked very nice.

Talk about cost cutting

Very disappointing inside and out. They managed to combine bland AND dated.... not an easy task. The concept had some promise, but this thing is a total dud.

to be fair to them, it does look ok and interior is probably the best Subaru interior ever, but yeah, it does look old.

It will probably look nicer in real press shots and yes, it will sell like crazy, lol.

Who buys a subaru based on aesthetics? They're reliable, provide all weather safety, reasonably efficient and priced... This should sell well.

The nicer Subarus used to be compared to Audis. Now they're just bland as can be AWD Toyota clones.

I don't think it will sell. The Legacy is a rare sight in the states. Maybe it does better elsewhere. But I doubt this will increase their market share. There are just too many other more compelling alternatives.

yes, same impression - although Forester is not that expensive in the USA... here it is priced over $60k so when you sit on it, you kind of get confused as it has interior lesser than Rav4.

This does look better than Camry for instance... and it will sell in pricing similar to Camry.

Legacy's main market is probably USA, so it will never sell Camcord numbers but I bet it will increase sales over last generation.

In Europe, it is not even sold in most markets.
