Subaru has announced pricing for the model-year 2023 Legacy sedan and Outback wagon — and, like most everything you can buy these days, both cars are getting more expensive. Price increases over 2022 range from less than $1,000 to over $4,500 depending on model and trim level. Both were facelifted and have updated safety technology compared to 2022 models, so buyers will at least be getting something for the extra money.

What’s New

Both vehicles have similar powertrain choices, depending on trim. Buyers can choose from either a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine making 182 horsepower and 176 pounds-feet of torque, or a turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 260 hp and 277 pounds-feet. Regardless of engine, every Legacy and Outback uses a continuously variable automatic transmission and comes standard with all-wheel drive.

In addition to the price increases, destination fees for both vehicles have also increased: The Legacy’s is now $1,020, up $25, and the Outback’s is up $50 to $1,225. Full pricing, including destination, is below.

2023 Legacy

  • Base: $25,415 ($925 increase)
  • Premium: $27,715 ($975 increase)
  • Limited: $32,465 ($1,025 increase)
  • Sport: $34,915 ($4,630 increase)
  • Touring XT: $38,715 ($1,025 increase)

The most significant increase for the Legacy is on the Sport trim, but it’s also worth noting that it now comes standard with the turbocharged engine instead of the 2.5-liter four-cylinder.

The Outback Onyx Edition XT sees the largest increase but also adds a power moonroof, 11.6-inch touchscreen display and reverse automatic emergency braking as standard equipment for 2023. Aside from safety updates we previously detailed, the other major change is that the Onyx Edition is now available with the base 2.5-liter engine.
