Subaru plans to release the new 2013 Subaru Legacy for the 2012 New York Auto Show on April 4th, with major changes in both the look and performance departments.

The 2013 Subaru Legacy gets a new style that looks more aggressive with a major restructuring of the front fascia. Appearance wise, the 2013 Subaru Legacy’s new look is a leap in design compared to its predecessor.

And under the hood, it is not too shabby either. It is equipped with a new 2.5-liter DOHC four-cylinder boxer engine producing 173 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque, which is mated to Subaru’s latest CVT automatic transmission. Subaru estimated that the 2013 Legacy has a fuel economy of 24 miles per gallon city, 32 miles per gallon highway and 27 mpg combined. This makes it the most fuel-efficient for an-all wheel drive sedan.

For better ride and handling, the 2013 Subaru Legacy sedan gets an upgrade in the suspension system as well. This includes numerous enhancements to the body structure, suspension and steering.

In addition, the 2013 Subaru Legacy gets the new EyeSight driver-assist system, which uses a stereo camera to detect surrounding objects. The system is integrated with the Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-Collision Braking and Vehicle Lane Departure Warning to alert the driver of dangers.

The 2013 Subaru Legacy will be debuting next week, and we’ll have more photos coming. So stay tuned.
