That is true to an extent, although the original subject was based on the Outback specific line of the Legacy model. For 2005 in the U.S., the Outback will distinguish itself more from the standard Legacy model which it was originally based. They will probably grown into two completely different model lines soon enough I'd wager. Besides, most people associate the Outback more with Subaru before they even recognize the Legacy mainly because of Paul Hogan's commercials. The Outback may technically be a "Legacy Outback" but no one really differentiates between teh two. Either way works thoughAZP Installs said:In general, you associate the "generation" with the model it's based on. So technically there is no 1st generation Outbacks. They started with the 2nd generation legacy. So you have 2nd Gen Outback/Legacy and 3rd Gen Outback/Legacy.
