Japan's Car Mode magazine is featuring a full-blown scoop picture of the upcoming Subaru Legacy Wagon. Subaru Japan is due to launch the JDM (Japanese Domestic Model) 2010 Legacy on May 20th. A teaser picture of the wagon recently appeared and showed one side of the vehicle from a poor angle.
Same vehicle as the Outback model unveiled at the New York Auto Show earlier this month, the Legacy Wagon differentiates itself by losing the raised ride height and flat black off-road body paneling. Instead, a more conventional family wagon with sporty touches defines the Legacy. There are currently no plans to offer the Wagon in the US but European customers are scheduled to receive the model.
Engines for the JDM Legacy are unclear at this point. But the US car will come fitted with a 2.4-litre with 170hp (125kW) and 230Nm of torque at the bottom end. There will be a 2.5 GT turbo worth 265hp (195kW) and 350Nm of torque and a new 3.6-litre replacing the old 3.0-litre. The 3.6-litre puts out 188kW and 335Nm.
High-performance STI versions of the Legacy sedan and Wagon have been rumoured.
