Subaru has recently announced that the Legacy Tourer, with its new Boxer diesel engine, will be officially presented to the public on the 6th of March, at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.
After it’s close to take over the market with the new BRZ sports car, along with the Toyota GT 86 sister car, the Japanese based automaker Subaru is showing us what the Boxer engine can do when it’s in the hands of its creators. According to the car manufacturer, the Legacy Tourer has recently received a new Boxer Diesel unit, which is developing a total output of 147 horsepower at 3,600 rpm and it has a peak torque of 350 Nm between 1,600 and 2,400 rpm.
The new Boxer engine is mated to a six-speed manual transmission which is helping the model to keep the CO2 emissions below 160 g/km in an average cycle. The unit is complying with the Euro 5 emission standards and it has a more efficient turbocharger, along with a new camshaft. The fuel consumption has been improved by 7 percent compared to its predecessor and Subaru also says that all Legacy Tourer vehicles are equipped with a gear change indicator as standard.
