Subaru Introduces Its Coolest Legacy Sedan

Subaru has unveiled the 2020 Legacy at the Chicago Auto Show, revamping the sedan for its seventh generation. Based on the Subaru Global Platform - which the automaker says should result in a vehicle 70-percent stiffer in torsional and front-suspension rigidity, and 100-percent stiff in front lateral flexural and rear subframe rigidity - it uses more ultra-high-tensile-strength steel than before, not to mention plenty more structural adhesive. Packing Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive as standard, the 2020 Legacy sedan also offers up to 260 horsepower and standard EyeSight driver assistance technology. Touring models add ventilated front seats and a heated steering wheel (optional on Limited), while a 12-speaker Harman Kardon premium sound system makes good use of the 3 dB quieter cabin, which has grown to boast more shoulder room, front/rear hip room and rear legroom.

Higher specification models are fitted with a new 2.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder boxer tuned to deliver 194kW of power at 5600rpm, and 376Nm of torque between 2000 and 4800rpm. A CVT is the only option for both engines. Subaru says the 2.4-liter Boxer launches the Legacy XT from 0-60 miles per hour in an estimated 6.1 seconds.

The 2.4-litre turbo is also available on the Ascent crossover, and effectively replaces the outgoing Liberty's 3.6-litre six-cylinder.

The biggest change on the inside will be the same giant new touchscreen as found in the Legacy, measuring 11.6 inches and using a vertically oriented layout.

Legacy makes it's global debut at the Chicago Auto Show. The Touring trim throws in navigation as standard. Thanks to help from standard active grille shutters, 2.5-powered cars are expected to be rated for 27/35 mpg.

BTS To Reportedly Appear At 2019 Grammy Awards
The 2019 Grammy Awards are just a few short days away, which means it's time to look forward to a number of awesome performances. As soon as BTS's attendance on Grammys has been reported, the hashtag " BTXxGRAMMYS " began to trending worldwide.

Turbocharged versions of the Liberty always sold well in Australia - but as we reported earlier this week, the current Liberty may well be the last one to be sold in Australia. Subaru says the new XT will have the highest levels of dynamic performance of any Legacy model in its history.

The Kia Sportage is getting its first update since the current generation's debut for the 2017 model year, and it's a relatively subtle one.

Evolutionary looks (it is a new Subaru, after all) mask a new platform, a new 2.4-litre turbo engine option, and an 11.6-inch tablet-style infotainment screen.

These days, SUVs and CUVs are all the rage, and Japanese automaker Subaru gets a large share of the credit for shifting public interest dating back to the introduction of its original Outback model. Though that may seem familiar, Subaru notes that this engine has been thoroughly redesigned for 2020, with 90% new parts and now, direct-injection.

The Lane Assist and the Driver Fatigue Monitoring System are responsible for active safety among other useful functions.
