2013 Subaru Legacy & Outback To Debut This Week

2013 Subaru Outback
Subaru will debut the re-styled 2013 Subaru Legacy and 2013 Outback models this week at the 2012 New York International Auto Show offering either a 256-horsepower 3.6-liter H6 or a new 173 horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder powertrain with choice between a standard six-speed manual transmission and the second-generation Lineartronic CVT (continuously variable transmission) which Subaru projects will achieve 24 mpg city/32 mpg highway/27 mpg combined, compared to 23/31/26 for the 2012 model.

Also new is an EyeSight driver-assist system which uses a stereo camera design developed by Subaru to provide a detection angle wider than that of radar-based systems and integrates Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-Collision Braking and Vehicle Lane Departure Warning. The 2013 Subaru Legacy and Outback 2.5i is available in three trim levels – base, Premium, and Limited.
