2013 Subaru Legacy Shows Increased Ride Height

It seems Subaru is keeping itself busy by jumping from one major motor show to another. After unveiling its XV at the Manila International Auto Show and then in New York, they've revealed that they're using the 2012 Beijing International Automotive Exhibition to showcase the 2013 Legacy which they say is specifically designed for the Chinese market.

In what looks to be something straight out of an April Fool's joke, the teaser photo reveals an increased ride height for the 2013 Legacy meaning it will probably share the Outback's longer suspension travel and suspension. Given China's terrible roads, this is probably a very good move. Aside from the raised suspension, Subaru is also hinting "more changes than you'll expect from a yearly model change". This could ultimately mean the introduction of the new-generation Boxer engine in China as well as the EyeSight technology or even the Lineartronic CVT.

Aside from the 2013 Legacy, Subaru is also set to showcase its new BRZ for the first time in China as well as a new rally car for the Chinese market. The Beijing International Auto Exhibition starts on April 23 and we'll try to give you news when we can!
