Yes. The questions you asked, and the Legacy that has been tested so far, are separated by a vast gulf of differing purposes. To wit: would you ask those questions of a new M3 being released?
I'm not trying to be facetious - the questions are certainly valid, but they relate only to the Outback/Lancaster (or Baja/Forester, I suppose) and not to the Legacy, given the separation in purpose between the lines. And the Outback/Lancaster is not due for release in Japan for a bit yet (even to press).
