Subaru Legacy Arrives With New Turbo And Advanced Tech

Bigger brakes on 17- or 18-inch wheels, combined with the stiffer new platform and lower centre of gravity, also contribute to what Subaru is calling the most sophisticated and advanced Liberty in the model's 30-year history.

Promising major advancements in the areas of "technology, performance, safety and refinement", Subaru's redesigned Liberty has emerged with an appealing, if still rather conservative, design that is built on the Japanese car-maker's all-new global platform, which already underpins the latest Forester mid-size SUV and the smaller XV crossover.

Developing 260 hp at 5,600 rpm and 376 Nm of torque from 2,000 to 4,800 rpm, the motor is linked to a Lineartronic CVT and the company's proprietary Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system - good for a 0-96 km/h run of 6.1 seconds.

There's a non-turbo option too in the form of the FB25DI, a 2.5 litre naturally-aspirated four-cylinder with direct injection. An 11.6-inch touchscreen that adds a built-in navigation app from TomTom, NFC functionality, and split-screen capability is optional on the Premium, Sport, and Limited trims and standard on the Touring grade.

Under the bonnet, the Legacy will get a turbocharged engine for the first time since the fifth-generation model. The lightly-accented wheelarches are one of the few remaining hints of its rally-themed predecessors.

"With larger thickness in profile panel surfaces and a thicker appearance from the raised trunk surface, which has a smooth connection to the C-pillar, the Legacy embodies solid toughness and a dynamic active image", Subaru says.

Aimers offered her $100 to continue and asked her to "kiss me like you mean it" after he pressed his penis against her trousers . He told the young girl, whose name or age has not been revealed, they could do "whatever" she wanted, the affidavit states.

The front suspension setup employs MacPherson struts with new internal rebound springs, aluminum lower L-arms and a 23 mm hollow stabilizer bar. For the rear, a double-wishbone layout with subframe is used together with coil springs and a new 19 mm hollow stabilizer bar.

Subaru has given the new Legacy an equally conservative interior design, aimed to appeal to a wide audience. Unlike the Honda and Toyota mid-size auto competitors, this 11.6-inch screen (standard on only the Premium, Sport, and Limited trims) is oriented vertically and dominates the entire area above the gear shift.

Subaru has unveiled the 2020 Legacy at the Chicago Auto Show, revamping the sedan for its seventh generation.

The outside of the Legacy doesn't look all that different apart from some new front intakes-it's the inside where Subaru has really gone hard with the changes. Base model Legacys come with two seven-inch displays that divide duties between infotainment and HVAC controls.

Also new is the addition of a Front View Monitor offered as Standard on the range-topping Touring XT. Optional on Legacy Limited, and standard on all XT trims, is an infrared system that chides with an alarm and a visual alert if it detects wandering eyes or a worn out driver behind the wheel. This system will be especially useful when entering traffic where the view of passing cars is partially blocked, such as by parallel-parked vehicles. No pricing has yet been announced, but the sixth-gen model has an MSRP of $22,545.
