2005 Legacy Up Close and Personal
Posted 22 October 2003 - 10:51 AM
My impression from the exterior is that the design is much more refined than current model, but overall very similar body shape. Refinement is most noticible in the headlight and taillight lenses in a much sleeker appearance. Overall the exterior looks more on par with a Volvo V70 or Audi A4 Avant. Paint and build quality were very impressive, esp compared to the two current OBWs that wer sitting next to it. Definitely less utilitarian and much more sports-sedan in appearance.
There was very little difference between the OB and the regular Legacy besides bigger tires and ground clearnace, and a little bit of Tupperware bolted to it. However, this is a Euro model so it may be toned-down a little bit on the SUV-ness.
The really impressive part (IMHO) was the interior. VERY NICE! Beautifully refined and sleek lines on the dash. An incredible center console with brushed faux-aluminum finish and a smooth Mercedes-esque gentle slope from the dash down between the bucket seats. Very, very nice and not plasticey at all.
So now Im torn b/c I have to buy a new Subaru in the next 6 months when I move back to the states. Just hope the '05 is available by then. Then again, I could probably get a steal on an '04 if it is.

Nonetheless I'll look into this further. Unfortunately when I asked the sales rep in my broken Italian, he gave me the "non parlo Inglese" line.
