Subaru takes a conceptual look at its longest running model
In celebration of the Legacy sedan's 25th anniversary, Subaru presents a preview of things to come: the 2015 Legacy Concept.

LOS ANGELES -- The 2015 Impreza WRX may have been the star of the show at Subaru's presentation at the 2013 LA Auto Show, but the automaker also showed off its vision for the future of its longest running nameplate with the 2015 Subaru Legacy concept.
The concept takes the cues and elements that debuted in many of its recent concepts (such as the eagle-eyed headlamps) and production models (the hexagonal grill), and refines them into a singular design.
Subaru says that its all-wheel drive system affords the driver stability. Stability breeds safety, and that safety gives the driver the confidence to enjoy the performance. The 21-inch wheels and flared fender arches are supposed to emphasize this underlying sportiness.
This being a concept, Subaru is able to make design compromises that would never see public roads, such as these narrow, squinty side mirrors, though I would like to see these sequential LED turn indicators on a production car.
Subaru's dashboard tech leaves plenty of room for improvement, so we'd like to see this large touchscreen infotainment system in a future Legacy model. Anything would be better than the dated systems the automaker has previously offered.
