The mystery graphic also doesn’t reflect a previous-generation Legacy or anything else in Subaru’s 2013 lineup. In fact, the design shows off a chiseled appearance, more prominent front fenders and wide stance. What is this car? Did the next-generation Legacy accidentally get programmed into the 2013? It looks a lot more interesting than the 2013 Legacy I was driving.
A quick inquiry to Subaru dashed any hope of the mean graphic being a real car. A Subaru representative says the graphic is stylized based on the Legacy concept and meant to highlight its design features, including the grille and hawk-eye headlight design.
Bummer. At least we can hope the next-generation Legacy takes inspiration from this graphic instead of evolving from the somewhat awkward design of the current one.
