All set for their European premiere are the all-new Subaru Legacy and Outback. From September 17 through 27, the two vehicles will be displayed at the Frankfurt Motor Show. These two models are actually already available in North America and Japan but in Europe, they will get some slight alterations. Both models get a restyled front grille along plus redesigned lower part of the front bumper and larger exterior mirrors housing the turning signals.
The new Legacy Sedan and Station Wagon are longer than their predecessors by 65 mm and 55 mm respectively, while the wheelbase in both cases is expanded by 80 mm, allowing for greater rear legroom. The Legacy will be available in two four-cylinder petrol engines, a 2.0-liter and a 2.5-liter unit, and Subaru's 2.0-liter turbo diesel boxer engine that makes 150 horsepower.
The fourth-generation Outback, which is the crossover version of the Legacy Station Wagon featuring improved ground clearance and SUV-like protective body cladding, will be sold with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder petrol and a 2.0-liter turbo diesel while certain markets will also get a powerful 3.6-litre boxer 6-cylinder petrol model.
