Subaru has announced pricing for the redesigned 2020 Legacy and Outback.
Starting with the sedan, the Legacy starts at $22,745 which is a $200 increase over last year’s model. Despite the modest price change, the car now comes equipped with a Starlink infotainment system that features two 7.0-inch displays. The upper unit is largely focused on audio controls, while the lower screen provides access to the climate control system and various vehicle settings.
Under the hood, there’s a revised 2.5-liter Boxer engine that produces 182 hp (136 kW / 185 PS) and 176 lb-ft (238 Nm) of torque – a modest increase of 7 hp (5 kW / 7 PS) and 2 lb-ft (3 Nm). The upgraded engine is connected to a Lineartronic continuously variable transmission that features a new eight-speed manual shift mode and steering wheel paddle shifters.
Moving up the ladder, the Legacy Premium, Sport and Limited all have a new 11.6-inch Starlink Multimedia Plus system. The Limited also boasts new side mirrors with two-position memory and an auto-tilting function on the passenger side.
More importantly, there’s new XT variants which have a turbocharged 2.4-liter engine that produces 260 hp (194 kW / 264 PS) and 277 lb-ft (376 Nm) of torque.
Besides the aforementioned changes, all Legacy models have an improved EyeSight driver assistance system that now features adaptive cruise control with a lane centering function.
The 2020 Outback is largely identical to the Legacy, but it costs $300 more than its predecessor as it now starts at $26,645.
The big news for the 2020, apart from the redesign, is the Onyx Edition XT which starts at $34,895. It featured a blacked out exterior with 18-inch alloy wheels. Other highlights include water-repellant StarTex seats, a full-size spare tire, a hand-free power tailgate and an exclusive Dual-Mode X-Mode system.
The 2020 Subaru Legacy and Outback will arrive at dealerships this fall.
Note: Prices exclude a destination and delivery of between $900 and $1,160.
