There’s a slight price increase, but you get more standard safety tech.
Ahead of their launch this summer, Subaru has announced pricing for the 2019 Legacy and Outback. Both models come with a small price increase, but you also get additional safety tech. For the 2019 Subaru Legacy, prices start at $22,545, which is an increase of $350 from the 2018 model. Unlike last year's model, Subaru's ubiquitous EyeSight driver assistance system comes as standard, which features adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking and throttle management as well as lane departure warning and lane keep assist.
The base model also includes a new Starlink infotainment system with a 6.5-inch display and a CD player. Under the hood is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder boxer engine that produces 175 hp and 174 lb-ft of torque. Moving up the range, the 2019 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Premium starts at $24,695, which adds 17-inch alloy wheels, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control system and a 10-way power driver's seat that includes power lumbar support. It also includes Subaru's All-Weather Package, which features heated front seats, heated exterior mirrors and windshield wiper de-icer.
Starting at $26,795, the Legacy 2.5i Sport has larger 18-inch wheels, a revised grille, and body color rocker trim with chrome accents. You also get LED fog lights carbon fiber finish patterned trim and two-tone cloth seats with blue contrast stitching. As standard, the model now comes with rear cross traffic alert and a blind spot detection system with lane change assist. Opting for the 2019 Legacy 2.5i Limited luxury model will set you back $29,245. Among the list of equipment includes perforated leather seats, heated rear seats and cushions, and a 10-way power driver's seat. The range-topping Legacy 3.6R Limited costs $31,545.
The equipment carries over from the Limited model, but under the hood is a more powerful 3.6-liter six-cylinder engine with 256 hp and 247 lb-ft of torque. The 2019 Subaru Outback, on the other hand, starts at $26,345 and includes EyeSight and the updated Starlink 6.5-inch infotainment system as standard. The trims, engine range and equipment echo the Legacy, but there's also a more luxurious Touring trim that adds a dark chrome grille, silver accents and unique 18-inch alloy wheels. The range-topping model also comes with a Java Brown leather interior featuring unique woodgrain trim and a 12-speaker Harman Kardon audio system.
