1981 Fiat Spider Turbo

It’s a fairly simple concept: You force more air into an engine to improve volumetric efficiency and thus increase horsepower. Turbocharging is so common these days that cars are very rarely named or badged as turbos. Every single 2020 Ford Escape, for example, is turbocharged.

Note: The following story was excerpted from the April 2019 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

When a limited-production variant of a performance car that’s been around a few years is announced, it’s easy to assume there’s little new beyond special graphics or maybe a fresh exterior color. Our latest Future Collectibles subject, the 2018 Subaru WRX STI Type RA, is one of the exceptions that have been reworked sufficiently to pique enthusiast interest.

2020 Subaru Legacy

2020 Subaru Legacy Limited XT

Consumer Guide First Spin Imagine if Joanie Loves Chachi, the ill-fated spin-off of the beloved TV show Happy Days, had somehow become vastly more popular than the program that spawned it. That’s kind of what happened with the Subaru Outback and Subaru Legacy. The first-generation Legacy debuted for 1989 in sedan and station-wagon form; the Outback followed for 1995 as an SUV-flavored variant of the Legacy wagon, with rugged-outdoors touches such as beefier body trim, a roof rack, and a raised ride height.

2020 Subaru Outback

2020 Subaru Outback

Consumer Guide Automotive

It’s probably not a stretch to say that the Outback is what put Subaru on the map. Introduced for 1995 as an SUV-flavored trim level of the Legacy wagon, it was soon upgraded to its own model, and sales have seen a steady climb since. Today – as for many years – it is Subaru’s best-selling vehicle.

For 2020, Subaru ushers in the sixth generation of the Outback. With it comes greater rear-seat and cargo room, some new features, and the return of a turbocharged engine. Also added is a new Onyx trim level that carries black wheels and trim along with special StarTex water-repellent upholstery.

2020 Subaru Legacy

Chicago Auto Show Subaru took the wraps off the redesigned, seventh-generation Legacy sedan at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show.

Moving onto the Subaru Global Platform introduced for 2017 helps give the Legacy what Subaru says is 70-percent-stiffer torsional rigidity. But the real news has to do with added features and newly available power.
