2023 Subaru Legacy – New Looks With Latest Features!
2023 Subaru Legacy – Overview
After three years on the market, the Subaru Legacy is getting a makeover for the 2023 model year.
The Sport trim now comes standard with a more powerful turbocharged 2.4-liter flat-four engine, redesigned styling, and the latest driver-assistance technology.
Here are the major highlights:
- A new grille, headlights, and front bumper have been added to the Subaru Legacy for 2023.
- The Sport trim should be more sporty, with the 260-hp 2.4-liter turbocharged flat-four replacing the 182-hp ordinarily aspirated engine as standard.
- The Subaru Legacy 2023 will go on sale this fall, with pricing information to follow.
The most noticeable modifications are on the front fascia, where a new grille trim piece runs nearly the vehicle’s entire width and connects them to more complex LED headlamps.
The grille has also increased, and the fog-lamp housings on the front bumper have been revised. Unfortunately, the back of the Legacy has not changed.
The 260-hp 2.4-liter turbocharged flat-four now comes standard on the Sport model, substituting the base engine, a 182-hp 2.5-liter flat-four.
Hopefully, this adds more sportiness to the Sport trim; the previous Sport we tested took an eternity to reach 60 mph when the pre-facelift turbocharged cars did so in just 6.1 seconds.
A magnetite grey side mirrors and trunk spoiler, the red accent in the grille, grey 18-inch wheels, & black-and-grey two-tone fabric upholstery with red stitching distinguish the Sport variant.
According to Subaru, the Sport also has a “sport-tuned” suspension.
Inside, the Sport and Touring XT levels now come with a standard 360-degree heated steering wheel and Slate Black Nappa leather with silver stitching and other trim upgrades.
Models with the 11.6-inch touchscreen now include wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard equipment.
In addition, according to Subaru, the music, climate control, and other settings on the infotainment display have been changed.
Subaru’s EyeSight suite of driver-assistance technology is standard on the Legacy, including automated emergency braking, lane-departure warning, and lane-keeping assist.
In addition, automatic emergency steering will be available on some models to help prevent collisions with objects at speeds below 50 mph.
The Touring XT model also has a wide-angle camera, which works in tandem with the dual-camera configuration to enhance the field of view for the EyeSight technology.
