UK set to miss out on latest Legacy saloon in favour of a new big estate car previewed by the Levorg concept. The 2015 Subaru Legacy will make its world debut at the Chicago motor show early next month.
The new car, previewed by the Legacy concept at the LA motor show in November, will be made as a saloon only and Subaru has confirmed it will not be sold in the UK.
Instead, a production version of the Levorg sports tourer concept from Tokyo is currently under consideration for Europe. The Levorg has already been confirmed for the Japanese market.
The Legacy concept was intended to show a modern interpretation of the model that turns 25-years-old this year and provided a thinly veiled look at both the upcoming production version and Subaru's future design direction, which is to be rolled out onto other models.
The production Legacy is expected to keep elements of the concept's sleek front-end design, including its hexagonal grille and more prominent headlight cluster designs.
Subaru confirmed the concept was all-wheel drive, the latest system also being destined for the production Legacy. The Japanese firm says the new car offers enhanced driveability and functionality while acheiving a design required for a flagship model with a quality feel.
