The sixth generation sedan Subaru Legacy 2015 formally submitted to the significant for the Japanese company Subaru in North America as part of the auto show in Chicago, February 6, 2014 and is timed to the 25th anniversary model. The new generation Subaru Legacy 2015 will be available to motorists United States and Canada in the summer of 2014
Subaru Legacy sedan in its second generation could make a design revolution in the classroom, but … did not do, which is very annoying. Until the last day before the premiere of the production version of the sixth-generation Subaru Legacy sedan was hoped that the novelty will be similar to those shown in November 2013 (motor show in Los Angeles, California, USA) Subaru Legacy Concept, caused great interest not only among the visitors Motor Show but motorists in different parts of the world.
Alas, the miracle did not happen, and the serial version of the sixth generation of “Heritage” (as translated model Legacy) was only the evolutionary development of the previous generation. Generational change has caused a lot of changes (albeit evolutionary, rather than revolutionary) in the exterior and interior of the new Japanese sedan. The technical part has undergone modernization which affected the steering and suspension, braking systems and engines.
Sedan completely new, from the design decisions and dimensions, and the last changes in the proportions of the passenger compartment (increase) and more extensive use of high-strength steel (tensile strength of 980 MPa) in the most critical areas in an accident. Overall dimensions of the new sixth-generation Subaru Legacy are: 4796 mm long, 1840 mm wide, 1500 mm high and 2750 mm wheelbase, ground clearance of 150 mm. New sedan became 66 mm longer and 60 mm in width compared to its predecessor, the dimensions of the wheelbase remained unchanged, while the height of the body is reduced by 5 mm.
Japanese designers when creating a body of new generation sedan Legacy focused on providing the largest possible and convenient for the driver and passenger cabin possible under the given size of the wheelbase, width and length of the car and tried to improve visibility and provide more headroom space in the first and in the second row. Compared with the previous generation model changed shape, location and configuration of the front and rear roof pillars, the roof, the location of mirrors, enlarged doorways.
As a result of the efforts of designers and engineers were embodied in a new very modern and stylish car, the exterior of which can be estimated using photo and video materials chosen for the article. The front end of the new Subaru Legacy sedan 2015 demonstrates sportsmanship, integrity, and passion, to ensure strict bumper with bright aerodynamic elements, original headlamps, imposing trapezoid lattice, elegant aluminum hood with charismatic ribs strictly exterior mirrors on the monumental pillars.
The side of the body of the new generation sedan looks no fewer sports and recklessly than the face of the car. View highlights the long and heavy hood, large radius with the ideal wheel arches decorated with strict organic vyshtampovki and is designed to fit rubber disk 17-18 range, large front and rear doors with bright longitudinal rib top line of pens, elegant dome roof running down a strict, by -Sport skinny stern.
The rear of the new generation of Japanese business-class sedan Subaru Legacy 2014-2015 publicly display large, stylish and beautiful ceiling with LED side light filling, blend in with the overall concept of strict stern with a solid bumper and trunk lid. And let the sixth generation Legacy sedan the appearance of the revolution did not, but began to look more solid and modern than the previous generation model.
As mentioned above, the interior of the new generation sedan from Subaru Legacy more than welcome to the driver and his companions. Increase the overall width of the machine by 6 cm allowed more comfortably accommodate the driver and front passenger and rear passengers have more space not only in width, but also add extra inches in the legs.
Interior sixth-generation Legacy is available in two colors: ivory or black. According to the information announced by the manufacturer substantially improved noise and sound insulation of interior – is set acoustic windshield, thicker steel floor panels, fenders and doors, soundproof foam is additionally used in the hidden cavities.
By equipping standard and additional options the new generation Subaru Legacy sedan will be the most advanced in the lineup of the Japanese company. As much as the packaged versions of the driver’s seat with electric adjustment in 10 directions and memory settings for two people, an advanced multimedia system with 7-inch color touch screen (music, navigation, phone, reversing camera), acoustics Harman-Kardon (12 speakers 576 watts), Key less Access and Start, a clever system EyeSight with stereoscopic cameras (adaptive cruise control with braking function, monitoring blind spots and lane departure, as well as monitoring of objects in the cross traffic when maneuvering in reverse), front, side two-section airbags and curtain airbags oversize, dual-zone climate control, xenon lights and other stuff – the attributes of a modern car.
In technical terms, the characteristics of the sixth-generation sedan Subaru Legacy platform based on its predecessor with a fully independent suspension – MacPherson strut front classic, rear double wishbones, but … for better handling and stability of the car when cornering and driving in a straight line at high speed Subaru engineers have increased not only the rigidity of the body torsion, but also made more rigid stretchers (rear new configuration) and the site of attachment of suspension arms, optimized rear shocks. Established a more powerful electric motor assisted steering to improve performance (steering wheel became more acute), more tenacious and informative steel brakes and the parking brake is now electronic.
Available proprietary Symmetrical AWD system (Symmetrical AWD) supplemented with Active Torque Vectoring (thrust vector control front, internal to the turn of the wheel by braking to a more neutral steering) and CVT Lineatronic survived modernization will reduce the vibration and friction losses.
