New Scooby breaks cover

Subaru's all-new Legacy will be shown at the upcoming New York Motor Show and details have been revealed ahead of its reveal. 

The concept version of the new-generation sedan was shown recently at the Detroit Motor Show although, as we expected, the production version's styling has been toned down significantly.

Apart from its thoroughly reworked exterior and interior styling, Legacy also rides on a new, longer platform.

The larger platform translates to more interior space for occupants since this Legacy is taller, longer and wider than the model it replaces.

For the US, Legacy is equipped with a range of petrol four- and six-cylinder engines. As expected, Subaru's symmetrical all-wheel drive system is standard on all models.

The European version of the all-new Legacy (which is the model that will be sold in South Africa) is expected to make its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show later this year. Subaru will likely show its 2.0-litre petrol engine and turbodiesel derivatives on Legacy's European debut, too.
