2020 Subaru Legacy near New Orleans LA Gets a Complete Redesign


The 2020 Subaru Legacy near New Orleans LA made its debut at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show. This launches the seventh generation of the brand's midsize sedan. It brings some major technological upgrades to the previous model year and the best way to see these upgrades is to compare the new four-door to the previous generation.

Although the new Legacy has not his dealerships yet, we are sure it will be just as impressive in person as it is on paper.

What's new in the 2020 Subaru Outback

Front-end

Subaru's designers took an evolutionary approach with the exterior of the 2020 Subaru Legacy near New Orleans LA. At the front, the grille now tapers inward more at its lower portion. The headlights retain a similar shape but are skinnier now.

Rear

Similar to the front, the rear of the 2020 Legacy is very similar to the 2019 model. The taillights now have a sharper shape with bracket-shaped brake lights. Dual circular exhaust pipes still emerge from below the bumper.

Interior

While the outside doesn't look much different, the 2020 Legacy is a whole new vehicle on the inside. The most obvious change is the new 11.6-inch, portrait-oriented infotainment screen that comes on all but the base trim. The larger screen replaces the optional 8-inch, landscape-oriented display from the 2019 model.

Another major upgrade to the cabin's appearance is the soft-touch material with visible stitching along with the dashboard and door panels. In combination with the metallic trim, the updated interior has a fresher, more upscale appearance. For more driver comfort, the heated seats now have three temperature settings, rather than two, and the warming reaches up to occupants' shoulders to keep them warmer. The connectivity includes an auxiliary jack, two 12-volt DC outlets, and four USB ports – two in front and two in back.

Powertrain

Subaru also updated the Legacy's engine options. The 2.5-liter flat four-cylinder is still around. However, it now produces 182 horsepower and 176 pound-feet of torque, rather than 175 hp and 174 lb-ft torque in the existing sedan. Fuel economy improved, too. Subaru predicts the 2020 model with the revised engine will get 27 miles per gallon city and 35 mpg highway. The EPA rates the current version at 25 mpg city and 34 mpg highway.

Subaru's 3.6-liter flat-six finally retires from the Legacy lineup for the 2020 model year, and a 2.4-liter turbocharged boxer four-cylinder replaces it. The new engine generates 260 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque, versus 256 hp and 247 lb-ft from the old six. Fuel economy also improves because the turbo four has an estimated 24 mpg city and 32 mpg highway, instead of 20 mpg city and 28 mpg highway for the six-cylinder.

Body

Subaru claims the biggest returns from the Legacy's switch to a new platform are quietness, improved body stiffness, and better handling. A more rigid body equals a more rigid mounting point for the suspension—a boon for tuning extra sharpness into the suspension's moves. The body is 70 percent more rigid torsionally (meaning in resistance to twisting), and the rear suspension mounting area is 100 percent stiffer than before.

The 2020 Subaru Legacy near New Orleans LA has a fantastic interior design and many more new features compared to the previous one. There's no doubt this sedan is an excellent option for car buyers.
