Subaru experiments with a sportier Legacy variant

By Faiming_low on 11 Jan 2015 in New model

Attached Image Subaru introduced the Legacy B4 Blitzen Concept at Tokyo Auto Salon 2015 with links to the original Legacy B4 Blitzen that debuted in 2001.

Attached Image Painted in 'Premium Red', which is in the same shade as the original, the new Legacy looks much more muscular with upgrades to the exterior. It gains new front and rear bumpers, side skirts and the signature rear boot spoiler. It also wears new 19-inch alloy rims wrapped with 245/40R19 Bridgestone Potenza tyres.
 

Attached Image Inside, the Legacy B4 Blitzen Concept receives a new two tone colour theme plus gloss black trims around the car to give the car a more premium look.

Attached Image Nothing has been changed mechanically for this concept. This means the concept runs a non-turbocharged 2.5-litre boxer engine outputting 170bhp and 235Nm of torque which is a far cry from what the original Legacy B4 Blitzen (276bhp and 320Nm of torque) had. Let's hope Subaru does do a properly souped one in the future!

Dear Carmakers,

 

Stop making aggressive-looking variants with wings, bodykits and bigger wheels that have zero enhancements to their performance (power, braking and/or handling). Doing so just makes you a bunch of cockteasers.

2.0 Turbo and no CVT please, Subaru...

Subaru has fallen far with this car. All show and no go. Sheesh. A lot like the BRZ (=FT86, but the blame for that can be laid at Toyota's doorstep), but at least that could handle even if it wasn't quick.

Not bad looking but its a shame its only available in auto.

I'm pretty sure this will look good in ICED Premium Red. But how much of this will go into actual production? Also, at 176bhp, it really is a laughing stock (pun intended), there are already many laughing "stock" Subarus - the RS2.0 comes to mind.

Look good only, no punch in performance. Quite disappointing.

Definitely too slow to be named for one of Santa's reindeer.
