Subaru reveals the Legacy Concept before the LA Auto Show.

Subaru has pulled the covers off its 2015 Legacy Concept before the car’s debut at the LA Auto Show next week. The sedan trades in its relatively staid styling for a more aggressive, coupe-like design that almost makes us forget about the rear doors from some angles. Overall, the Legacy looks beefier than your average Subaru, similar to the Ford Taurus.

The concept’s character line stretches all the way back to a small trunk, which helps the car achieve its coupe-like appearance. But the front end makes the biggest impression, with “hawk-eye” headlamps and a gaping hexagonal grille with three horizontal slats. The taillights have a shape similar to the headlamps to “enhance the solidity of the overall design,” Subaru says.

Custom paint called Ocean Silver Metallic adorns the concept, which sports 21-inch wheels under bulging wheel arches that Subaru says hints at the standard all-wheel-drive system (the BRZ is the only two-wheel-drive Subie).

Head below for the press release, and be sure to check in next week for more information (and photos) of the Legacy Concept live from the LA Auto Show.
