The current Legacy, Subaru's all-wheel-drive answer to the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord and Ford Fusion, chugs into its fifth model year for 2014, but it appears a redesign is just around the corner. Subaru announced plans to show a 2015 Legacy Concept at next week's 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show. Subaru says the 2015 Legacy Concept, which arrives at the Legacy's 25th anniversary, "provides a look at the styling cues for future Legacy models."

Subaru says all-wheel drive is standard; the concept's roofline peaks just ahead of the B-pillars, giving the car a cab-forward profile and coupe-like rear quarters. Expect the eventual production car to forego the concept's 21-inch wheels for something more ordinary.
Shoppers bought 36,441 new Legacy sedans through October, a flyspeck compared to the 300,000-plus sales for the Camry and Accord apiece. Shoppers also prefer the related Outback wagon by a nearly 3-to-1 ratio.
Stay tuned for more details on the 2015 Legacy Concept at next week's show.
