The 2023 Subaru Legacy Sport Trim has got a more technical, new design

Like the Outback, the 2023 Subaru Legacy has received a mid-cycle refresh this year. Highlights include an updated design, in-vehicle tech, driver assistance system and a new sport trim.

The design update gives Legacy a new front fascia. It has got a new bumper, newly designed LED headlights, a larger grille and new fog lights.

A new Sport Trim for 2023 comes with its own design changes. Subaru includes a red accent strip through the front grille, as well as a “magnetite gray” side mirror cover and rear spoiler. Also, it gets the unique gray-painted 18-inch alloy wheel. The Sport is backed by a standard 2.4-liter turbocharged engine and a “Sport-tuned” suspension that no other Legacy model gets. The interior comes in a black and gray two-tone fabric, and is accentuated by red stitching – no other legacy trim gets this interior. And as far as equipment goes, the Sport gets everything from premium trim but adds LED fog lights, a power moonroof and navigation.

Outside of the Sport Trim, all 2023 Legacy models will enjoy an advanced iSight driver support system suite. A camera with a wide field, updated control software and a new electric brake booster all contribute to making the driver support system smoother and better than ever.

2023 Subaru Legacy

Legacy models equipped with large 11.6-inch touchscreens will now feature wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Also, the screen gets updated controls for climate control systems and other vehicle functions – we’ll see if it makes it more intuitive to use. Another technological upgrade is the addition of an available digital rearview camera mirror.

For those models fitted with a heated steering wheel, Subaru designed it in such a way that the whole wheel is now heated against just a few key touch points. Another luxury addition is the Turing XT Trim’s new Slate Black Napa Leather Upholstery with Silver Stitching. Lastly, we’ll mention that the out-of-the-box legacy models will now include 3 word technology that allows customers to “accurately and accurately find trailheads, landscapes and other places to navigate and share using just three words”. It’s a bit vague at the moment, but we hope to learn more about how it works after we try it.

No price has been set for the new legacy, but we expect it to be available for sale this autumn.
