Subaru to Debut 2018 Legacy at Chicago Auto Show
The 2017 Chicago Auto Show is sure to be a groundbreaking experience in terms of vehicle releases and updates. Every year, automakers announce the best and brightest models available, with some surprises mixed in. Subaru is taking advantage of the large stage in Chicago and is planning to debut the all-new 2018 Legacy on Thursday, February 9th.
What’s new on the 2018 Legacy
The 2018 Legacy, Subaru’s mid-size sedan, is receiving some significant changes, inside and out. Notable upgrades include safety, multimedia, comfort, engineering, and design. While the Legacy will still have two engine options available (2.5-liter or 3.6-liter), the ECU has been finely tuned to provide a smoother and more responsive acceleration. Also worth noting is that Subaru’s well-known all-wheel drive comes standard on the Legacy, which makes it the only mid-size sedan to offer this.
Shine bright like a diamond
Steering Responsive Headlights (SRH) are a new on the 2018 Legacy and pair well with the available LED headlights. These lights move in the direction of the driver’s steering and aid significantly with nighttime visibility. On the Limited trim, Subaru EyeSight is available and automatically turns the high beams on and off, depending on certain traffic conditions.
I’m gonna get myself connected
Inside the new Legacy will be enhanced seating and dash quality, depending on the trim chosen. On the Premium trim, drivers can enjoy stitching on the dash, seats, and door panels, as well as high-gloss black trim and silver-color bezels. Gray interior is now available, along with the previously offered black and ivory.
SUBARU STARLINK multimedia system with Bluetooth wireless capability is also set to be included on the new Legacy, which allows for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, along with a large collection of available helpful apps. TomTom navigation is available on the top level system and comes with 3 years of free map updates.
