Along the new Subaru Outback Touring, the Japanese manufacturer also launched in the US a special edition for the current generation Legacy. The foor dour premium sedan debuts as a 2017 model with exclusive styling features including a dark gray front grille, fog lights with gloss black housings, and newly designed 18-inch sport-styled wheels.
Chrome-accented rocker trim and high luster silver-finished turn-signal mirrors further emphasize the sleek look of this new trim level.
The Legacy Sport interior highlights include two-tone pairing of gray and black cloth upholstery and exclusive blue stitching on the seats, door panels, and steering wheel. Also, a carbon fiber pattern dash and door panel trim are complemented by piano-black door switch panels and steering wheel switches.
The Sport package includes a standard 7.0 inch Multimedia Plus system with a high-resolution 7-inch LCD screen. In addition, Starlink 7.0 inch Multimedia includes Bluetooth hands-free SMS text messaging and dual USB ports.
The new Sport trim also offers Reverse Automatic Braking and High Beam Assist as part of the EyeSight Driver Assist Technology option package. Both features are new to the Legacy line for 2017.
Equipped with standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, the Legacy Sport is powered by a 175-hp, 2.5-liter boxer engine paired with a standard Lineartronic CVT (continuously variable transmission) with manual mode and paddle shifters. The combination achieves a combined 29 MPG EPA-estimated fuel economy rating which is among the highest for midsize sedans with all-wheel drive.
