Ahead of its official reveal at the upcoming 2019 Chicago Auto Show, Subaru has teased an outline of the exterior and the infotainment setup of the 2020 Subaru Legacy.
While nothing about the Legacy’s exterior comes as a surprise here, the interior does indicate a move slightly upmarket. For the upcoming car, Subaru has decided to join the tablet-sized touchscreen bandwagon, popularly seen on Tesla models. On the outside, the Subaru Legacy is still a normally proportioned sedan with generic sedan styling. The front fascia features new LED DRLs that surround nearly the entire headlights.
Subaru’s decision to introduce a new sedan comes at a time when the automotive market is experiencing high demand for crossovers and high-seated vehicles.
Subaru’s decision to introduce a new sedan comes at a time when the automotive market is obsessed with crossovers and high-seated vehicles. Beyond what the company has teased and a couple of spy shots from last year, we can only wait for the shadows to melt away to make any true judgements of design tweaks.
Talking about the interiors, it is evident that Subaru has opted a rather modern approach with the huge tablet-sized vertical touchscreen. This looks fancier than any of the cars Subaru currently sells. Each model that undergoes a refreshment or a new model for that matter in Subaru’s lineup has demonstrated marked improvement in the infotainment department.
The new interiors seem to be finished with a hint of premium as well. The brown stitched leather covering the dash leading to an elegant centre console and gear shift area along with better quality elements on the dash sure gives the Subaru Legacy a luxurious allure.

In July 2018, Autoblog snapped a few spy shots of a heavily camouflaged car which gave us a better look at its exterior. Compared to the current Legacy, every other panel apart from the greenhouse and glass area has been tweaked sharply. The sides seem to have more slant to them too. In the front, the grille can be seen to be shorter in height but stretched wider.
More of the car will be revealed at the Chicago motor show this month. Till then we are not disappointed with what we see.
