Subaru debuts 2008 models in Toronto

Subaru Canada, Inc. (SCI) unveiled the new 2008 Legacy 2.5GT Wagon, Legacy 2.5GT spec.B Sedan and 2008 Outback 3.0R at the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto on February 14. The Legacy and Outback lineups each receive distinctive new styling cues that differentiate the sophisticated Legacy from the rugged Outback. In addition to the new sheet metal, performance of several new models will be enhanced with a new, second-generation 5-speed electronic automatic transmission with blipping control that matches engine speed while downshifting and features steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters on 2.5GT Legacy models.
Outside, the 2008 Legacys stylish new look includes a new front grille with chrome crossbars, new front-end sheet metal, and new head lamps and tail lamps combined with new front and rear bumpers that conveys a refined, contemporary new look. In addition, Subaru has added even more value to the Legacy lineup with a redesigned instrument panel, new interior fabrics, and new standard equipment that now includes a telescopic steering wheel.

The new 2008 Outback is distinguished from Legacy by a larger and more upright chrome front grille with a revised front fascia and redesigned fenders and hood for a bolder and more rugged appearance. The new Outback also features new wheels for the 2.5XT and 3.0R 6-cylinder models.

Subaru Canada is delighted to continue to offer the Legacy Wagon to Canadian customers, in spite of the fact that it will no longer be offered in the U.S., said Katsuhiro Yokoyama, president, chairman and CEO of SCI. Canadians have always favoured the convenience, utility and good looks of our wagon models, and Subaru will continue to ensure that our model lineup supports the unique needs and choices of our Canadian customers.

All Outback 3.0R models will now be equipped with Subarus advanced Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) stability and traction system, as well as SI-DRIVE that allows the driver to maximize engine performance, control and fuel efficiency by choosing from three selectable modes Intelligent, Sport, and Sport Sharp. In fact, VDC is now standard on a wide range of Legacy and Outback models, including Legacy 2.5i Limited Sedan and 2.5GT Sedan, Legacy spec.B Sedan and the Outback 2.5i Limited and 2.5XT, as well as the 3.0R models.

Every Subaru is also built to the highest levels of passive safety. Legacy has garnered the highest award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick - in the mid car segment, thanks to its light but strong Ring Frame Reinforced structure. In addition, both Legacy and Outback received 5-star ratings for the driver and front passenger and rear passengers in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) crash tests.
