With a successful lineage behind it, the seventh generation of the Subaru Legacy was unveiled at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show as a 2020 model.

Switching to the Subaru Global Platform (SGP), the new model is mechanically different in almost every respect compared to its predecessor, despite featuring a very similar exterior design.

The more modern architecture allows the Legacy to offer much increased torsional rigidity, safety, dynamics and reduced noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) levels, not to mention much improved driving assist technologies. Available under the XT designation, an all-new turbocharged engine marks the reintroduction of turbos in the Legacy range.

The 2.4-liter four-cylinder Boxer gasoline engine delivers no less than 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque, replacing the aging naturally aspirated 3.6-liter six-cylinder from its predecessor. In fact, the U.S. version of the new Legacy only has a two-engine lineup, with the new turbocharged being accompanied by a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter four-cylinder Boxer with 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque.

Both engine versions are paired with a Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) and send their power to both axles thanks to Subaru's Symmetrical All-wheel Drive with Active Torque Vectoring.

The interior highlight is represented by a table-style 11.6-inch full HD multimedia touchscreen display, which offers controls for the air conditioning, multimedia and vehicle settings. The overall ambience inside is a lot more upscale and there is even in-car Wi-Fi connectivity available for the first time in a Legacy.
