Subaru will bring out a new Legacy for 2015.

With just a week left until the Chicago Auto Show, Subaru is trying to drum up some interest in the upcoming launch of its fifth-generation Legacy sedan.

The maker has already rolled out a show car, the concept model revealed at the L.A. Auto Show last November offering a strong hint of what the production model will deliver to showrooms later this year.  So, what are the likely differences?
