Now this is the truth! If we keep buying crap, then we will continue to be fed crap. Unfortunately, Americans seem more interested in toys, gadgets, and brand names than truly good cars. Unfortunately, because we buy so many cars, we have a disproportionate impact on the industry as a whole.

Subaru, bucking moves by other automakers, remains committed to the midsize sedan, and now the next-generation Legacy has been spotted testing in metro Detroit.

The Legacy, one of Subaru of America's oldest nameplates, will be the latest model to join the brand's global vehicle platform following the Forester, Ascent, Crosstrek and Impreza.

Spy photos indicate that the 2020 Legacy will retain styling similar to the current model, though the face appears to have been retouched to better match the redesigned Forester and other models already on the platform.

The rear also appears to be styled a little bit sharper than the current Legacy, which was refreshed for the 2018 model year. For the 2019 model year, Subaru said it was making its EyeSight driver assist technology standard gear on the Legacy. EyeSight includes adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking and throttle management, lane departure warning and lane keep assist.

The redesigned 2020 Legacy is likely to debut in early 2019.

U.S. sales of the Legacy total 21,415, down 16 percent, through June this year and the midsize sedan segment has shrunk 15 percent through the first six months of 2018 as U.S. consumers migrate to crossovers and SUVs.

Subaru on Thursday announced that the new 2020 Legacy would be making its international debut at the Chicago Auto Show on the 7th of February. That initial announcement was made simply with a very dark version of the above image showing off the Legacy’s massive portrait-layout infotainment touch screen, automatic shifter, and a bit of very nice looking brown leather.

Sedans, particularly the mid-sized segment that the Legacy occupies, have been pushed aside in recent years for scads of crossovers. That Subaru is so heavily invested in the new sedan speaks volumes.

With competition from Toyota’s Camry, Honda’s admittedly very good Accord, and the now-available-with-AWD Nissan Altima, the Legacy has to come out of the gate swinging in order to make an impact. As such it joins the ranks of Tesla, Volvo, Ram and more in getting a giant tablet-style screen on the dash.

The Legacy sedan will take its architecture from the modular platform that underpins the existing Ascent. It is likely that Subaru will make use of an updated version of the current Legacy’s 2.5-liter flat-four hooked up to Subaru’s CVT transmission. It is unlikely that the flat-six engine will return for the 2020 model year.

It is also likely that the same platform will spawn a new Outback model in short order as well, being that the Outback is essentially a lifted Legacy wagon. This, more than anything, explains Subaru’s investment in the new Legacy sedan.

Tablet-style screen with physical control knobs and buttons is the way to go. Dashboards without a screen, or a dinky little one with poor resolution look dated or cheap at this point.

A virtual slider to adjust volume or to make incremental adjustments for something is a pain in the ass.

Subaru of America introduced the all-new seventh-generation 2020 Legacy sedan - the most advanced Subaru Legacy in the model's 30-year history. With standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology as well as available tablet-style high-definition 11.6-inch SUBARU STARLINK™ multimedia screen, DriverFocus™ Distraction Mitigation System and new XT models with 260 horsepower, the 2020 Legacy offers greater technology, performance, safety and refinement than ever before.

Built on the Subaru Global Platform, which offers increased safety, dynamics and quietness not to mention reduced noise, vibration and harshness (NVH), the Subaru Legacy will be available in Base, Premium, Sport, Limited, Limited XT and Touring XT models when it goes on sale at Subaru retailers this fall. New XT designations mark the return of a turbocharged engine to the Legacy lineup, thanks to a 260-horsepower 2.4-liter direct-injection SUBARU BOXER® engine, while other models sport an enhanced 182-horsepower 2.5-liter direct-injection BOXER engine. Every 2020 Legacy features a Lineartronic® Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), auto stop/start and Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive with Active Torque Vectoring.

Looks like a mix of physical & haptic buttons. I prefer real buttons, too easy to hit the wrong one in our Flex.

Assuming the XT is replacing the 3.6R.

The current 3.6R Limited starts ~$32k
Wonder if the XT Limited will keep around that price & a bit more for the XT Touring.

Either way it's coming with a CVT so don't get super excited...

True, but the current 3.6R is CVT only, so not a real change except for a slight bump in power over the 3.6

Yup, I know. Just want people to have their expectations in check for a second coming of the Legacy GT.

Right. As great as a 2.5T 6MT would be, never going to happen (in NA at least).

All the newer Subarus are getting turbos, I wonder if the BRZ is going to get a turbo soon?

Next gen, maybe.

At the very least, a bigger engine. Latest rumor was it would have a 2.4L

While not great, it's actually not bad. I've said this in other threads but I've asked my wife and others who own Subarus if they like the transmission in their car and if they notice anything strange about it and they all say it's fine and feels like any other car. Most people can't tell the difference at all.

They'll probably ship it with even less power than the last one as a giant middle finger to the world.
