2023 Subaru Legacy Mid Cycle Facelift Sport Trim Gets Turbo Engine

Subaru of America, Inc. today announced the 2023 Legacy midsize sedan with updated styling and new safety and in-vehicle technologies. Also new, the Sport trim level comes standard with the powerful 2.4-liter turbo SUBARU BOXER® engine. For 2023 model year, Legacy will be available in Base, Premium, Sport, Limited, and Touring XT trim levels when it arrives in Subaru retailers this fall.

The 2023 Legacy lineup receives a bolder look thanks to a new front fascia incorporating a more prominent grille and redesigned LED headlights. The sedan comes standard with the latest generation of EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology and the enhanced system operates more smoothly and under a greater range of conditions. These improvements are thanks to a wider field of view, updated control software, and the addition of an electric brake booster.

The latest version of the SUBARU STARLINK 11.6-inch Multimedia Plus system comes with wireless Apple CarPlay® and wireless Android™ Auto with full screen display. The updated system now offers improved on-screen controls for audio, HVAC, and vehicle features.

The top-level Touring XT adds a Wide-Angle Mono Camera that works with the dual-camera EyeSight system. The additional camera expands the field of view even further to recognize pedestrians and bicycles sooner when the vehicle enters an intersection at low speed. EyeSight gives an alert to the driver and, when necessary, applies brakes to avoid collisions.

On models equipped with Blind-Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, EyeSight now includes Automatic Emergency Steering. The two systems work in conjunction to help avoid a collision with an obstacle at speeds less than 50 mph.

For 2023, the Sport trim level comes standard with the 260 hp 2.4-liter turbo BOXER engine. The Sport trim’s exterior is immediately distinguishable by a red accent across the front grille; magnetite gray metallic side mirrors and trunk spoiler; and gray 18-inch alloy wheels. The interior comes in an exclusive black and gray two-tone cloth with contrasting red stitching. The Sport builds on the Premium trim and adds sport-tuned suspension, LED fog lights, power moonroof, and navigation. Additional standard safety features include Reverse Automatic Braking and DriverFocus® Distraction Mitigation System.

The 2023 Legacy delivers the optimal blend of comfort and performance with standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, Active Torque Vectoring, and Vehicle Dynamics Control. The naturally aspired 2.5-liter engine produces 182 hp and 176 lb-ft of torque. Standard on Sport and Touring XT, the 2.4-liter turbocharged BOXER engine delivers robust all-around performance with 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque.

All 2023 Legacy models are paired with Subaru’s Lineartronic CVT (continuously variable transmission) featuring an 8-speed manual mode function with steering wheel paddle shifters. The 2.4-liter turbo delivers an estimated 24/32 mpg city/highway. The 2.5-liter achieves up to an estimated 35 mpg and a range of more than 600 miles on a single tank.
