Subaru of America announced today that the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show will host the debut of its new Legacy Concept car. Celebrating 25 years of the Legacy, the concept sedan brings with it a glimpse of some of the styling cues we'll likely see showcased in future Legacy production models.

Featuring a coupe-like shape, a more aggressive front facia, flared wheel arches surrounding 21-inch wheels and a distinct character line beginning at the front fender and terminating at the tail lights, it would appear that Subaru may mean to take the Legacy out of its normally conservative confines in hopes of attracting a slightly different demographic than had been targeted in the past. Then again, Subaru has been known to show off radical concepts that end up considerably tamer in production form, at least from an aesthetic standpoint. Only time will tell.
Cherry Hill, N.J. -  Subaru of America, Inc. announced today it will debut the Subaru LEGACY CONCEPT at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show. The new LEGACY CONCEPT celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Subaru Legacy and provides a look at the styling cues for future Legacy models.
Adorned with a custom Ocean Silver Metallic paint scheme, the LEGACY CONCEPT features a more coupe-like silhouette. The LEGACY CONCEPT is a modern interpretation of the Legacy and features a more distinguished front design with a new hexagonal grille and a sharper hawk-eye headlamp design.
Flared wheel arches cover 21-inch wheels and hint at the standard Subaru Symmetrical all-wheel drive drivetrain. A pronounced character line flows into the short rear deck and ends in the rear tail lamps. The tail lamps echo the hawk-eye headlamp design and enhance the solidity of the overall design.
