Teaser profile is almost a dead ringer for the Legacy Concept shown at the Los Angeles auto show in November.

This is the first teaser shot Subaru has released of the 2015 Legacy sedan, due to premiere at the Chicago auto show on 6 February.

What the maker describes as “a sporty and modern sedan with a sleeker, more coupe-like profile, a more extreme windshield rake angle and narrower A-pillars than its predecessor”, is actually almost a dead ringer for the Legacy Concept shown at the Los Angeles auto show in November.

The light clusters - fore and aft - the bulge in the front fender over the front wheel, and the derivative c-pillar treatment, all match; the only difference we can spot is that the production version has simpler, plain black door mirrors, rather than the concept's body-coloured, mirrors with built-in indicator repeaters.

Subaru has revealed nothing so far about the drivetrain but, again referencing the concept, we can expect it to have a four-cylinder boxer engine (186kW two-litre with turbo or 129kW 2.5-litre without) driving all four wheels – of course – through a continuously variable transmission and symmetrical all-wheel drive.
