The current one is CHEAP quality.

Also Subaru no longer uses their signature frameless windows!

A video fusing 25 years of the Legacy with the release of the new Legacy. The 1st generation Legacy passes the "Baton" to the 2nd generation, then on to the 3rd, finally all the way through to the 6th all-new Legacy. A brilliantly composed clip touching on both the history of the Legacy as well as the continual improvements being made as the flagship model of the Subaru brand.

Nice looking, but certainly not much more exciting than the current bland version. 37 MPG is impressive for an AWD midsize with a large 4 cylinder. Sounds like the 6MT might be a goner, but it seems unlikely because I do see a fair amount of them at the dealer when I visit. No turbo option is also a disappointment. Maybe a Legacy GT will return now that they have the CVT variant of the WRX.

I'm biased, but I like mine the best.

I get that vibe as well. Nothing really "upscale" about it (which I thought they were going for). Size wise maybe it's the picture but it looks like a straddler between compact and midsize class

tell me why they couldn't build something almost like the concept?
The concept exterior looked production ready with a few tweaks to the headlights.

What sets it off as econo and downmarket is the silly wing window above the sideview mirrors. These unecessary windows are found on cheap, 1980's econo cars and trucks of Europe, who's body structures could not be designed to accomodate the entire front window fitting inside the door when retracted. There's no class with such a design feature, other than bringing down the side profile and making it look nerdy and cheap.

Yeah that style is used across all of Subaru's vehicles!

Seriously WTF is happening in these Japanese boardrooms?

I don't notice as many Subarus around as I used to. There are a few tree-huggers driving them back home in my hometown though.

This is the last good looking Subaru:

I think the WRX is going to be a big seller for Subaru. WRX has the space comparable to last Legacy, DIT, and Manual.
