Refreshing or Revolting: 2020 Subaru Legacy

Motortrend News Feed - Sat, 02/16/2019 - 00:00

Subaru has fully redesigned the Legacy sedan, but you’d never know it. The model sits on a new platform and features new technologies, but the exterior design changes are pretty minimal. That’s not surprising given Subaru’s conservative attitude toward vehicle styling. The question is: Is the subtle approach effective or not? Let’s take a closer look at the design updates on the 2020 Subaru Legacy.

Up front, the headlights look smaller, although very similar to the old design. There is no longer a frame around the grille, giving the new model a more streamlined appearance. The new grille also has sharper corners than the old one. The model pictured here has new black trim around the lower intake area.

When looking at the side profile, you’ll notice the biggest change is the new set of wheels. The two main character lines that run across the doors have also been redesigned. The top character line is softer, and the bottom one curves upward toward the rear wheel. Subaru revamped the design of the side mirrors for improved aerodynamics. Also, notice the shape of the window has altered near the rear. The roofline drops down more sharply when it reaches the trunk compared to the old model. In the rear, you’ll find slimmer taillights with a new lighting signature. This change is complemented by a redesigned license plate area and bumper. Overall, the rear looks more upright.

The most important updates happen inside the cabin. The previous model featured an optional 8-inch screen oriented horizontally. Now, Subaru has adopted an 11.6-inch screen oriented vertically like a tablet. If you want to change the cabin temperature, there are new haptic controls at the bottom of the screen, as well as physical buttons off to the side. The air vents are now positioned to the side of the screen instead of on top. You’ll also find the shifter is new.

Is the 2020 Subaru Legacy refreshing or revolting? Let us know in the comments on Facebook.

The Hyundai Santa Cruz Pickup Truck’s Design Has Changed

Motortrend News Feed - Fri, 02/15/2019 - 23:43

Remember the Hyundai Santa Cruz lifestyle pickup concept from the 2015 Detroit auto show? Well ,that was a long time ago, and it no longer looks like that.

The unibody compact truck for young buyers was well-received and the automaker started work on a production model. It was even given the board’s blessing to add it to the product plan for sale in 2018 as a 2019 model. But a sales slump, the ouster of CEO Dave Zuchowski who was its champion, and a focus on other vehicles pushed Santa Cruz down the priority list.

Time has passed and the design strategy at Hyundai has changed. As the brand has matured, there is no longer the need to give every product in the lineup the same look. No more Russian dolls, says SangYup Lee, head of the Hyundai Global Design Center in Namyang, Korea. He wants new vehicles to be striking and different, forcing customers to take a closer second look at which point they discover it is a Hyundai.

It means that the Santa Cruz, a concept penned five years ago, was designed under the old family-resemblance regime. The design had to be updated, while keeping the basic look that made it popular.

The new Santa Cruz “will be a lot more distinctive” and have “a lot more character,” said Lee in an interview with MotorTrend. It is still a crossover pickup “but the look of it is a lot more progressive.” The new look has been finalized and locked in.

Santa Cruz is still expected to ride on the same platform as the Hyundai Tucson which is also due to be redone. The pickup will not hit the market until 2020 at the earliest. Lee would not confirm a timeline. A Kia pickup could follow later.

The original concept was shown with a large cab with suicide doors and a short bed that could be extended. It had a 2.0-liter turbodiesel engine. We would expect a four-cylinder gas engine for the U.S. market where diesels are not popular beyond large pickups and SUVs. Hyundai originally planned to offer an optional 2.2-liter turbodiesel in the Santa Fe but cancelled those plans, citing low demand.

Pictured is the Hyundai Santa Cruz concept from 2015.
