Subaru Outback and Legacy get significant updates for 2017 model year
Subaru might not be the car company favorited by everybody, but it is still one of the most durable and capable car-brands out there. So the news will be exciting for not so many, but for the true fans in general. The company has recently announced that it adds for the 2017 model year new trim levels for the Outback and Legacy models.
2017 Subaru Outback Touring
2017 Subaru Outback Touring is the new trim level, being also the newest flagship model. It adds dark gray grille and 18-inch wheels with dark gray accents and a machined finish. The unique styling of this trim is highlighted by the low-profile roof rails in a silver finish as well as the lower cladding and Outback chrome badging.
The Outback Touring will be offered with the 175 hp, 2.5-liter 4-cylinder unit and the more potent 256 hp, 3.6-liter 6-cylinder engine. The customers will also have the opportunity to go for a Brilliant Brown color, which has been added to the options. In addition, all Touring interiors include new Java Brown perforated leather-trimmed upholstery, door panels, and armrests with contrasting ivory stitching. Other refinements for the cabin consist of woodgrain interior finish and piano-black switch panel accents as well as heated steering wheel (which comes as a standard). The Touring trim also gets at no cost SUBARU STARLINK 7.0" Multimedia Navigation system with voice-activated controls.
For the entire Outback line Subaru is debuting the Reverse Automatic Braking, which will help the driver avoid a possible collision when the vehicle is moving in reverse. Subaru's EyeSight Driver Assist Technology along with Blind Spot Detection and Rear Cross Traffic Alert are standard and are paired with the new High Beam Assist feature.
2017 Subaru Legacy Sport
This model now comes with enhanced styling and features dark gray front grille, fog lights with gloss black housings, and newly designed 18-inch sport-styled wheels. Chrome-accented rocker trim and high luster silver-finished turn-signal mirrors are what makes the car look sleeker and contemporary.
The cabin of the Legacy Sport has two-tone gray and black cloth upholstery and exclusive blue stitching on the seats, door panels, and steering wheel. Carbon fiber pattern dash and door panel trim are also three, harmonized by piano-black door switch panels and steering wheel switches.
The optional Sport package at which the customers can aim, adds standard SUBARU STARLINK 7.0" Multimedia Plus system with a high-resolution 7-inch LCD screen, Reverse Automatic Braking and High Beam Assist as part of the EyeSight Driver Assist Technology option package.
Legacy Sport is powered by2.5-liter SUBARU BOXER engine rated 175 hp and equipped with standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and Lineartronic CVT (continuously variable transmission) with manual mode and paddle shifters.
