Motorcity, the sole distributor of Subaru in the Kingdom of Bahrain, revealed the all-new 2015 Subaru Legacy Sedan in an exclusive media preview on Monday 22nd of December 2014 at Subaru Showroom in Sitra. The new Legacy now features the largest interior passenger volume in the midsize sedan segment.
During the event Dr. Bijan Majidi, General Manager of Motorcity said: ‘The Subaru Legacy has been completely re-designed for 2015 to deliver a more compelling blend of standout design, interior refinement and safety features. The 2015 model is the best-equipped Legacy ever, with all trim lines adding new standard amenities, and has the highest level of luxury ever in this model.’ He added: ‘This model is now available at an attractive launch price of BD 7995. We invite the customers to visit the showroom and avail this exceptional value offer.’
New Design Language
The 2015 Legacy echoes design themes introduced by the Legacy Concept at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show. The production model combines sporty form and efficient function. A sleek, coupe-like profile is a new front fascia that combines the hexagonal grille and bumper into one smooth piece. An aluminium hood reduces weight over the front wheels, enhancing steering response.
New Safety and Security from a Safety Leader
The 2015 Legacy comes standard with Day Running Lights and Steering Gear Shifter. A new rollover sensor can deploy the side curtain airbags if an imminent rollover is detected. For added more comfort, the 2015 Legacy features new standard Light and Rain Sensors. The 2015 Subaru Legacy introduces a new type of airbag restraint along with 4-sensor/4-channel ABS with Electronic Brake-Force Distribution.
Four Cylinder BOXER Engine
The 2015 Legacy 2.5i is powered by a double-overhead-cam (DOHC) FB series 2.5-liter BOXER engine which produces 175 HP, with a standard Lineartronic CVT (continuously variable transmission). This engine has been debuted in 2013 and now has received numerous enhancements for lighter weight, improved efficiency and quitter operations.
Enhanced Agility and Quieter Ride
Subaru extensively revised and retuned the Legacy’s MacPherson strut front suspension and double-wishbone rear suspension for greater handling agility and a more compliant ride. New quick-ratio electric power-assisted steering delivers outstanding feel and also helps reduce fuel consumption. The Legacy 2.5i is equipped with standard 17-inch alloy wheels, and the Sport trims feature 18-inch alloy wheels.
Active Torque Vectoring, an enhancement of the Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) stability and traction control system, fosters more neutral cornering by applying brake pressure to the inside front wheel.
Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive
The all-new 2015 Legacy is equipped with a newly refined version of the Active Torque Split version of Symmetrical All Wheel Drive (AWD). An electronically managed continuously variable transfer clutch actively controls torque distribution in response to driving conditions and wheel slippage.
More Room, Greater Refinement
With nearly the same exterior footprint as the previous Legacy, the 2015 model offers the largest cabin space in the midsize segment, at 104.6 cu. ft. (up from 103 cu. ft.). The Legacy 2.5i-S delivers impressive comfort with an 8-way power driver’s seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, the all-weather package, upgraded infotainment system, an air filtration system, leather-wrapped steering wheel, fog lights and more.
Subaru significantly upgraded infotainment capability in the 2015 Legacy. A new standard 6.2 Infotainment System in the Legacy 2.5i provides AM/FM stereo, single-disc in-dash CD player, 6.2-inch multi-function touch screen display with single-touch gesture control, Bluetooth® hands-free phone connectivity and audio streaming, iPod® control capability, USB port and auxiliary input jack.
