I just got my latest October MT. On pg.48 their is an article on the '05 Legacy.

In the article it stated that, "Subaru is readying a new Legacy-based crossover for fall 2004, to compete with the Lexus RX 330 (:eek:) and the Acura MDX. (:eek:) That gives the '05 Outback room to become more elegant and carlike."

Wow. Subaru has set their sites high going after Lexus and Acura, and not going after the Toyota and Honda versions. My mouth dropped open when I read that. The '04 Legacy looks sweet, I can't wait. It seems just like yesterday when the '00 came out.

It gets even better.. keep an eye out for the Saab 9x wagon.. Saab styling, WRX 2.0 engine/AWD.. Gotta love that.. I do.. But I am a big Saab fan.. Have had a bunch of them.. I'm savin my pennies for when they release them

Yeah I've seen pictures of the 9-2. It will be interesting to see a Saab with a boxer. I guess the post about the crossover made me sound like a newbie. It really did take me by suprise. I knew Subaru was working on a seven passenger vehicle, but I thought it would be a minivan. I never got around to getting my old post count back.

Hopefully, it is not as bland looking as the Lexus or Acura. I am hoping for a rougher Landrover or Hummer look, but well see...

Hmmmmm.... A Subaru with round headlights. That thought had crossed my mind a few years ago. It will be an interesting leap forward for Subaru.

Seems to me that the DL I owned 20 years ago had round headlights.

At least I think it did...

You're right. Caught me with a dumb statement their. What I meant was that if they designed it like a Hummer it would have a big mean toothy grill with round headlights. I can't say that the DL's had mean looking grills.
