2010 Subaru Legacy
Travis Geny, Subiesport Magazine

See the full gallery at subiesport.com

Subaru has released images and details of the new 2010 Legacy, set to appear at the New York International Auto Show. The new car is roomier, quieter and more sophisticated than any Legacy before it says Subaru. The Legacy gets an all-new host of engines and transmissions for the 2010 model year making the new GT the most powerful Legacy to hit U.S.-shores.

The big news is the adoption of a 6-speed manual transmission for both 2.5i naturally aspirated vehicles, and the turbocharged GT models. The 6-speed is the same unit found in the 2009 Legacy Spec.B, although Subaru reports it is now 50lbs lighter. The 2.5i models also have an optional CVT transmission.

The 2.5i gets a revised version of Subaruís SOHC 2.5-liter engine found in the Impreza 2.5i. This is a torquey, fun engine, but will leave the Legacy panting to catch up to some of itís V6-powered rivals. To rememdy this, Subaru is offering the Legacy with a range-topping 3.6-liter flat 6, previously found in the Tribeca and mated to the new 5-speed automatic box. This mill puts out 265bhp and should quench your power thirst if all you want to do is race Accords and Camrys.



Of course, Subiesport readers will want to know about the turbocharged 2.5-liter GT version. Sporting the same engine as the 2009 WRX, this engine has shown tremendous potential to put down serious power with only mild tweaking in the exhaust and ECU dept. If stock power numbers are any indication, it should have the same turbocharger as the WRX, which is a revamped unit from the 2007 STI.

This new Legacy represents a bold step for Subaru as they move to eliminate some of the quirkiness that has become a hallmark to fans. However, that same quirky ethic has driven some would-be consumers into the arms of Honda and Toyota. Surely this new car will help rectify that problem.

Like someone else here said,

Thanks Subaru....nice knowing you.

That car is not the Subaru it should be. Good way to screw up a great car. Oh wait, this is the second one right after the WRX/STi.

I swear nobody liked the 08 Impreza sedan a year ago???????????? This isnt even the GT model or what for the WAGON gt. These will look amazing with coils, some color-matching body work and wide wheels.

I'll wait to see it in person before I make any judgement. The 2.5 GT sounds promising... Hope it comes with the 6-speed and more aggressive styling.

Ok.
I can deal with the new Impreza's.
Fine and dandy...

But come on now.
This has Infinity headlights, a Accord grille, and a very typical back end.

Is there anything to identify that this is a Subaru aside from the tiny star badges?
The really sad thing is this un-original piece will prolly sell better now that it is dumbed down.

I liked their concept car worlds better in the exterior design alone...

Subaru I love you.
Stop shooting yourself in the damn foot!
