2010 Legacy makes US debut


The new fifth generartion Subaru Legacy will be uncovered at the New York Motor Show next week

This Legacy will go on sale in the US in June. Other markets, including New Zealand, will see a slightly different Japanese-made version.

Subaru says this model is its roomiest ever, expanding by 35mm in length, 90mm in width and 80mm in height over the current model. Wheel base has also been upped by 80mm.

The 2.5-litre boxer engine has been revised and are now mounted on a front subframe rather than the body.

The 2.5L normally aspirated and 2.5L turbo engines remain, but the 3.0L is now a 3.6L R engine. NZ is likely to see a 2.0L diesel unit.

A Lineartronic CVT gearbox is another innovation.
