Yes, it does. But you know what else the WRX has? A completely different EVERYTHING than the Legacy.

 

So again, the idea of "retaining" the 6MT would be appropriate if speaking of the WRX, but not for the Legacy which hasn't had a MT option throughout the entire 6th generation of the model.

Canada had a 2.5i 6MT 6th Gen from 2015-2017, but never the less the 7th Gen isn't getting a MT.

Wow 6th gen came with manual transmission? Australia only gets CVT now (unless WRX model).

 

Yes we get the same rubbish in New Zealand, thats why I'm glued to developments of the 7th Generation WRX STi as its going to be my last hope for a Subaru as my next car with 6MT. If they don't get it right, then I'm gone.

 

My current 2005 Subaru is perfect, 6MT and Bilstein suspension, 18inch factory alloys etc. so I have not had to spend a cent on performance upgrades and throw half the car in the bin because its already done for me. Basically its an STi wagon.

No eyesight hardware? That mean no changes to current gen tech?

 

More crap you don't need in your car to go wrong. You do all realise that your paying for all that extra crap don't you ?

 

Did I mention I just love my steering wheel, its a factory leather MOMO wheel with absolutely NO BUTTONS on it just the horn. Jeeez thats almost retro these days.

Eyesight is standard here even on the base model.

 

Yes but I think they are having big trouble integrating it into a manual which is good news.

 

Darn it the push for continued "Safety" and "Emissions" is really stuffing up the "Drivers Car".

 

Do new car owners really want alot of these features or are they just having them jammed down their throats ?

 

There has been numerous improvements in engineering over the years, but now some of the new stuff is just not essential.

Seems like the dashboard will be more upright and better suited to a crossover (AKA the Outback) rather than more horizontal and car-like, similar to the 5th gen's was.

I wish Subaru would smarten up and abandon the Legacy, focus their resources on crossovers and making their safety systems compatible with manuals to retain their significant flock of enthusiasts.

Never will happen they tasted the sales figures of bland easy to pilot vehicles. The WRX MT option is the last true MT option you should expect from Subaru look for it to disappear from ALL models across the various models refreshes.

 

 

 

At least now we wont have to convert to a RHD HVAC setup just to get decent sound :lol:

To me, it looks like a Tesla interior.

 

 

Makes sense - Tesla is seen as the leader in UI design these days, looks good on presentations. But if it's good from a usability perspective is a completely different matter.

Infotainment system looks similar to Volvo's setup.

Shame looks like its the end of the line for the Legacy for me, they just get worse and worse. If its CVT then its well and truly dead.

 

My only hope is the WRX STi now as long as they keep the 6MT and don't go hybrid and even then its going to be nothing to get excited about unless its over 350Hp.

Where have you been? The Legacy hasn't had a MT in the their optional engine since 2012. The base 2.5i drop the 6MT after 2014. The 2015 up have been all CVT. Even the 2013 Legacy GT that JDM and other market got was a CVT with the FA20DIT.

Anyone who thinks that enthusiasts are a core market for Subaru is delusional.

peeps out there whining about no MT but people have not been buying them for years... no need for one in a a to b car... given the sneak peaks of newest legacy and what I am guessing is the outback, comfort and features are the rule of the day while they continue to use the CVT to maximize fuel economy and emissions.
