Subaru’s 2023 Legacy Is Getting a New Look and Improved Vision

As long-time fans of Subaru’s Legacy know, the redesigned 2023 model arrived on Thursday and continues the legacy’s reputation as a reasonable car for sensible people. The adjustments made by Subaru won’t make much of a difference in terms of performance, but they should enhance the overall driving experience.

For the first time, Subaru’s 260-horsepower 2.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine is now standard equipment in the Legacy Sport trim level. On- and off-ramps should be a lot more enjoyable with this engine, even if it’s not mated to the most thrilling gearbox (it’s still a CVT). The Touring XT model comes standard with this engine.

With the addition of a wide-angle mono camera on the Touring XT trim, the EyeSight advanced driver-assistance system’s range of vision is greatly increased, allowing it to better identify pedestrians and cyclists. For all Legacy models, the newest and best version of EyeSight is installed, which incorporates adaptive cruise control with automatic lanes centering and automated collision avoidance braking. Subaru’s DriverFocus attention reduction feature comes standard on Sport and XT Touring models.

There are other updates, such as standard wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for vehicles equipped with the 11.6-inch Multimedia Plus infotainment system (basically everything but for the base model), which is nice, and a redesigned front fascia that looks good overall.

This autumn, Subaru is expected to provide price details for the 2023 Legacy, which hasn’t been done yet.
