Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

Subaru has recently removed the wraps around its fifth-generation Legacy and Outback models which are due to be released in Japan with the addition of the new Touring wagon and sporty B4 to the range to coincide with said launch.

True to speculations, the latest Touring model has adopted the controversial styling found on the sedan version together with the same powerplant line, which points to the 2.5-liter powerplant which can produce 170hp (127kW) and a top torque of 170lb-ft (230Nm).

Offered likewise will be a 265hp (197kW) and 258lb-ft (350Nm) turbocharged variant of the same powerplant for the Legacy GT wagon's 2.5-liter powerplant.

The Legacy 3.6R wagon, which comes with a power output of 256hp (191kW) and a top torque of 247lb-ft (334Nm) from its 3.6-liter powerplant, will be filling out the range. In contrast to the outgoing model, the Touring version comes with bigger dimensions in almost every respect.

It comes with a lengthened wheelbase by 80mm due to its new platform, thereby making the wagon 95mm longer that the preceding model, and also 50mm broader.

Increased also is the storage area up to 2,018 liters. On the other hand, the sporty B4 saloon, which is patterned after the 265hp (197kW) 2.5 GT turbocharged powertrain, is equipped with discrete performance touches like the 18-inch wheels and a subtle bodykit to distinguish it from the ordinary variants.

Both models will hit the US by the latter part of the year with a base price of about $19,995 or thereabouts.
