The 2023 Subaru Legacy Receives a new Design and Updated Tech

The Subaru Legacy enters 2023 with a refreshed design and a number of additional features.

  • The 2023 Subaru Legacy has a new front end design

  • The EyeSight driver assistance system is updated

  • A new infotainment system with a larger screen is available

Subaru unveiled the refreshed 2023 Legacy today. This sedan features a new front end styling as well as an updated infotainment system and a more complete driver assistance package.

The current generation of the Subaru Legacy has been on the market since 2020, so it was expected that it would receive a few mid-cycle changes this year in order to remain competitive for until the next generation is introduced in another few years.

For 2023, the Legacy arrives with a new front end that is composed of new LED headlamps and foglamps, as well as a larger grille and a new bumper design. This makes the Legacy look more like the Ascent and the Forester, two favorites among Subaru buyers.

Inside, the available infotainment system gains a larger screen that allows it to incorporate the controls for the automatic climate control system in order to give a more streamlined design to the center console. This 11.6-inch screen also comes standard with the wireless Apple Car Play and Android Auto integration and new for this year, these two features can now operate in full screen and take advantage of all of the space available on the touchscreen display. To keep you comfortable all winter long, the new steering wheel is entirely heated in order to provide a comfortable grip around its entire circumference.

Under the hood, the same 2.5L flat-four engine is standard with its 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque and the 2.4L turbocharged Boxer four-cylinder engine is still available with 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are paired with the Lineartronic CVT transmission and the standard Symmetrical all-wheel drive.

New for 2023, the Sport trim level gains the turbocharged engine to go along with its more dynamic appearance that includes a red accent on the grille, gray side mirrors and a small gray spoiler. Appart from specific wheels, the changes also include an exclusive gray and black interior with red accent stitching.

To improve the safety of the Legacy, the 2023 model comes with the latest version of the EyeSight driver assistance system which now features a wider field of view and a quicker response due to new software and the addition of an electric brake booster.

Also new, some models can now avoid obstacles by performing automatic evasive steering manoeuvres instead of relying only on the brakes.

To improve the system further, the top-of-the-line Touring XT now uses a single wide-angle camera instead of the two units used on other models in order to allow EyeSight to detect pedestrians and cyclists sooner, which gives the driver more time to react.

The pricing information has not been released yet, but it is expected quite soon, since the 2023 Legacy will go on sale later this year in North America.
