Massive newly released car makeover always seems fascinating to follow. Will that be available too in the 2023 Subaru Legacy?
Legacy is a car lineup from Subaru that promotes a perfect combo between sedan and city wagon. Its mid-size range makes it a popular car for various daily use. Interestingly, Legacy has been produced for a while, and currently, it has hit its fifth generation. As for the upcoming 2023 Subaru Legacy, will it be a new start for the sixth generation? We’ll never know. But we can predict what specifications will come out along with the release.
What We Can See on the Upcoming Subaru Legacy
Over thirty years since the Subaru Legacy was released to the public, this car seems to never run out of enthusiasts. Currently going strong on the fifth generation since 2009, Subaru Legacy keeps innovating by promoting exciting features which will attract buyers to keep coming.
Will the 2023 Subaru Legacy be able to keep up its quality? Will it have a significant remodeling when compared to the current release? We still don’t know about that, but one thing is for sure: it will have something to improve compared to the last release, despite being minor improvements.
Improvements we can see from the upcoming release of Subaru Legacy may not be many. The exterior aspect becomes one of the focal points that is said to have improved, although we’re still unsure about it. It may look more aggressive, sporty, and a bit more ‘muscular’—given that the car is a sedan with SUV in the heart.
But for most eyes, it doesn’t look clear. So, unless the carmaker points that out, chances of users finding it as a difference may be below.
Like other Subaru lineups, the car’s ground clearance is said to be one feature that seems unbeatable compared to other brands. Since Legacy is operated on an AWD powertrain, commonly found in SUVs, this excellent ground clearance makes it a great feature to have.
Regarding the interior aspect of the 2023 Subaru Legacy, sources said that nothing much could be seen as a massive transformation. We can agree with this statement to some extent, but nothing is sure until the carmaker itself claims it.
Subaru is said to have an excellent interior which corresponds well to the price you will spend on it. Its interior may not be on massively sophisticated materials as in a sports car, but having a comfy feeling is so easy. A gentle plastic feel can be felt in many interior parts (the dashboard is one).
Although the plastic, comfortable seating with premium leather material upholstery is also what you can expect from Subaru Legacy 2023 version. But note that the premium leather will only be available on models with a higher price.
Adding the feature of the interior is its spacious legroom and headroom. This will ensure maximum comfort while riding the car. The mid-size sedan wagon can carry along five passengers with a maximum capacity of 2,700 lbs. in 2022—let’s hope it can be increased.
However, the drawback is seen in its infotainment aspect. A touchscreen compatible with Android and Apple smartphones is attached, yet the size isn’t satisfactory, unlike the Levorg with an 11.6-inch vertical touchscreen panel.
Its Engine Aspect
What about the engine? Coming with an AWD powertrain, this car is expected to have four models at least on this upcoming release. So, it’s hard to determine whether all models will share the same engine. Most likely different models will come with another machine as well.
According to one source, the engine may not be that different from the current release. Taking one representative model example, the 2023 Subaru Legacy is equipped with two motors with 2.4 L displacement for the XT model. Get a more expensive lineup; you’ll get one with 2.5 L displacement. Each will offer you different max power production and torque.
What about its safety aspect? Although many Subaru lineups have been equipped with the EyeSight feature, in this 2023 Legacy, it is still blurry to determine whether this car has the part or not.
All said these ‘hypotheses’ will later be confirmed once the 2023 Subaru Legacy has been released. It is planned to be launched in late summer if there is no significant hindrance. So, let’s wait for the official announcement.
