2017 Subaru Legacy Sport and Outback Touring Coming This Summer
The Subaru Legacy Sport debuts as a 2017 model powered by the all-wheel drive 175 horsepower 2.5-liter SUBARU BOXER engine paired with a standard Lineartronic® CVT (continuously variable transmission) with manual mode and paddle shifters delivering a combined 29 MPG EPA-estimated fuel economy rating. Sport features include a dark gray front grille, fog lights with gloss black housings, newly designed 18-in. sport-styled wheels, chrome-accented rocker trim and high luster silver-finished turn-signal mirrors. Inside, two-tone pairing of gray and black cloth upholstery and blue stitching on the seats, door panels, and steering wheel, a carbon fiber pattern dash and door panel trim. The Sport package includes a standard SUBARU STARLINK 7.0” Multimedia Plus system with a high-resolution 7-inch LCD screen with 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.
2017 Subaru Outback Touring, the new flagship model, is available in both the 175 horsepower 2.5-liter 4-cylinder and the 256 horsepower 3.6-liter 6-cylinder engines. Debuting on the 2017 Outback model line, Reverse Automatic Braking helps the driver avoid a possible collision when the vehicle is moving in reverse. EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology along with Blind Spot Detection and Rear Cross Traffic Alert are standard and are paired with the new High Beam Assist feature. The models will arrive into retailers later this Summer.
