The Legacy has received various modifications from Subaru. The front end receives a big grille flanked by new LED headlights, which is the focus of the modifications. A more aggressive bumper with a large center intake and plasticky fog light surrounds is also available.
Customers can choose the updated Sport trim level. A red grille accent and magnetite gray metallic flourishes on the side mirrors and rear spoiler identify it. The variant also comes with gray-finished 18-inch alloy wheels.
Exclusive black and gray upholstery with red contrast stitching are featured on the Legacy Sport. Power moonroof, GPS navigation, and other safety features including Reverse Automatic Braking and a DriverFocus Distraction Mitigation System are noteworthy.
Wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are now available on the Legacy's 11.6-inch Starlink infotainment system, as well as "enhanced on-screen controls for audio, HVAC, and vehicle features." New what3words integration is available on navigation models.
The Legacy Sport previously had a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produced 182 horsepower and 238 Nm of torque, but the new model will come standard with a 2.4-liter turbocharged engine. The new engine produces 260 horsepower and 375 Newton meters of torque. It comes with continuously variable transmission and a symmetrical all-wheel drive.
The Legacy Sport and Touring XT now has a 360-degree heated steering wheel that is warm everywhere you touch it as part of the All-Weather Package. New Slate Black Nappa leather with contrasting silver stitching is also available for the Touring XT.
Automatic Emergency Steering is now available on vehicles equipped with Blind-Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, which helps to avoid collisions at speeds under 80 km/h.
As the 2023 Legacy, the modifications are readily noticeable. The 2023 Subaru Legacy will go on sale in the United States this fall, with the price to be announced closer to its arrival.
