The current Subaru Legacy, which came out in 2014, is a big improvement over its frumpy predecessor – it’s sheetmetal is considerably sleeker, the details look like someone actually was paying attention to them, and the whole looks rather attractive as a result. That said, the car can hardly be accused of being the most originally styled on the market, and it’s clear that parts of its design where inspired by other cars. In fact, the whole rear of the car seems to have been taken wholesale from a luxury car launched a year earlier by another carmaker.
That much makes sense – making your mid-sized sedan look like a luxury car is not bad way to go – but what’s puzzling is why Subaru chose to copy the decidedly ho-hum Acura RLX, rather than, say, the all-conquering Mercedes-Benz S-class, or even the quietly handsome Lexus LS. Whatever the reason, most will admit that the Legacy turned out much better than the RLX, with the latter making people wonder whether Acura was even serious about the segment.
