Subaru has been trying to broaden its reach lately by still offering low-cost all-wheel-drive vehicles for the everyday buyer but adding more premium rigs for the more discerning buyers. Today, the Japanese automaker has unveiled two new trim levels that will add a little extra something to the Outback and Legacy models.
The 2017 Outback gains a new Touring trim level. This model will be available with either the 175-horsepower 2.5-liter engine or the 256-horsepower 3.6-liter six-cylinder and features tons of luxurious bit. The features include a Java Brown perforated leather interior with ivory stitching, woodgrain finishes, piano-black switch panel accents, a heated steering wheel, and the Subaru Starlink 7-inch Multimedia Navigation system with voice-activated controls.
The 2017 Legacy’s new trim level, known as the Sport, focuses more on upping the uniqueness of the model instead of its luxury. Standard features added to this trim include a dark-grey front grille, fog lights with gloss-black surrounds, new-look 18-inch wheels, chrome rocker trim, high-luster finish mirrors with integrated turn signals, a two-tone grey-and-black cloth interior, blue contrast stitching, carbon-fiber-patterned dash and door panel trim, piano-black switch panels, the Subaru Starlink 7-inch Multimedia Plus system, and the 175-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine.
Subaru has yet to release official pricing details for these two models, but we should learn this information as we near their summer 2016 release. Stay tuned for more details.
