2019 Subaru Legacy And Outback Debut With Additional Safety Tech, Higher Prices

Subaru has released pricing for the 2019 Legacy and Outback, ahead of their launch this summer.

Starting with the Legacy, pricing starts at $22,545 which is a minor increase of $350. Despite the small climb, the 2019 Legacy comes with additional standard equipment including the EyeSight driver assistance system which features adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking and throttle management as well as lane departure warning and lane keep assist.

Besides the driver assistance systems, the entry-level Legacy has a new Starlink infotainment system with a 6.5-inch display and a CD player. Another notable feature is the car’s 2.5-liter four-cylinder boxer engine that develops 175 hp (130 kW / 177 PS) and 174 lb-ft (235 Nm) of torque.

Moving up to the $24,695 Legacy 2.5i Premium adds additional features including a 10-way power driver’s seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a dual-zone automatic climate control system. The model also comes with an 8-inch infotainment system, heated front seats and 17-inch alloy wheels.

 

 

The Legacy 2.5i Sport starts at $26,795 and has a revised grille, additional body color accents and larger 18-inch wheels. Other highlights include LED fog lights, faux carbon fiber trim and two-tone cloth seats with blue contrast stitching. While the equipment largely carries over, the model now comes standard with rear cross traffic alert and a blind spot detection system with lane change assist.

Buyers looking for something more luxurious can opt for the Legacy 2.5i Limited which starts at $29,245. The sedan comes nicely equipped with perforated leather seats, a power passenger seat and heated rear seats.

Lastly, the Legacy 3.6R Limited costs $31,545. It is largely identical to the 2.5i Limited, but has a 3.6-liter six-cylinder engine developing 256 hp (191 kW / 259 PS) and 247 lb-ft (334 Nm) of torque.

 

 

The 2019 Subaru Outback echoes the Legacy and pricing starts at $26,345. However, the wagon offers a more luxurious Touring trim which builds on the Limited by adding a dark chrome grille, silver accents and unique 18-inch alloy wheels. The range-topping model also comes equipped with a Java Brown leather interior featuring unique woodgrain trim and a 12-speaker Harman Kardon audio system.

Besides the aforementioned changes, the 2019 Legacy and Outback receive a standard 5-inch LCD display in the instrument cluster. The models also have a new overhead shower light and a revised center console with USB ports. Higher-end variants – including the 2.5i Premium, 2.5i Limited and 3.6R Limited – also have an auto-dimming rearview mirror with a compass and Homelink connectivity.
