Despite a raft of updates, the duo is still competitively priced.
Let's start with the Outback, which rolls into 2023 with a starting MSRP of $28,395 for the base model. Powered by a 182-horsepower 2.5-liter boxer engine, the entry-level variant receives Subaru's much-lauded EyeSight driver assists, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, and LED headlights.
Next up is the $30,695 Premium which receives items such as dual-zone climate control and a 10-way powered driver's seat. The 11.6-inch infotainment screen replaces the base model's smaller seven-inch item. There are also optional packages available, which bring luxuries like a sunroof into the fray. The more sinister Onyx Edition costs an extra $2,800, adding a hands-free tailgate, black painted exterior trim, badging, and 18-inch wheels, along with a model-specific grey two-tone interior.
The Onyx Edition XT is priced from $38,595 and eschews the 2.5-liter for the more muscular 260-hp 2.4-liter turbocharged boxer engine. Aside from more power, the XT gets a standard navigation system, sunroof, and eight-way power front passenger seat. The Wilderness model is slightly cheaper, at $38,445, and is the only model to not receive the 2023 styling updates. It receives most of the Onyx Edition XT's features but gains off-road tuned suspension for better ground clearance and off-road performance.
The $35,295 Outback Limited is new for 2023. It receives high-class touches such as perforated leather upholstery, heated rear seats, and keyless entry with a push-button start. There's also automatic emergency steering and rear cross-traffic alert, among other safety features. The Limited XT justifies its $4,400 premium by including the powerful 2.4-liter as well as a standard heated steering wheel, Harmon Kardon audio system, and navigation system.
Lastly, there's the Touring. $39,845 gets you all the Limited's trimmings, plus ventilated seats and a 180-degree front view monitor, and a heated steering wheel. The range-topper also receives an exclusive interior, with black or Java brown Nappa leather. The Touring XT receives all the Touring's equipment but uses the more powerful turbocharged mill.
The updated Legacy has also received a bevy of upgrades. The company's midsize sedan is available in five trims, which kicks off with the $24,395 base model that uses a 182-hp 2.5-liter that sends power to all four wheels via a CVT transmission. The entry-level variant receives the EyeSight safety system that includes adaptive cruise control (with lane centering), while the seven-inch infotainment system boasts standard Apple CarPlay/Android Auto capabilities and more. LED headlights and keyless entry make the cut, too.
The $26,695 Premium gains everything the base trim has but adds a few luxury touches such as a leather-trimmed steering wheel, dual-zone climate control, and a ten-way power adjustable driver's seat. It also receives the superior 11.6-inch infotainment screen.
If you want the turbocharged Legacy Sport, you'll have to fork out a bit more. Priced from $33,895, the more athletic-looking derivative receives racier styling and a black and gray two-tone interior with red stitching. Sport models receive all the perks of the Premium, but also gain sportier suspension, a sunroof and reverse automatic braking.
The more reserved Legacy Limited is priced at a more affordable $31,445 and seems to be the sweet spot of the range. Like the Sport, it receives all the amenities of the Premium trim level but builds on this with leather seats, push-button start, and automatic emergency steering.
Those looking to upgrade the model will be able to fit a $2,060 package which brings a Harman Kardon premium audio system and heated steering wheel into the fold.
Lastly, there's the Legacy Touring XT. Priced at $37,695, it's the most expensive model in the range and receives a full suite of luxury and safety features to reflect its halo status. Exclusive Nappa leather upholstery sets it apart from lesser models and things such as the audio system come as standard. This variant also receives the 2.4-liter turbo boxer engine.
