News 2021 Subaru Legacy and Outback

  • Steering Responsive LED Headlights now standard across all trim levels
  • Front and Rear Passenger Seat Belt Reminder standard
  • Rear Seat Reminder added to list of standard safety features
  • Legacy starting price: $22,895
  • Outback starting price: $26,795



Subaru of America, Inc. today announced pricing on the 2021 Legacy sedan and Outback SUV, starting at $22,895 and $26,795 respectively. Both models gain new standard safety features including Steering Responsive LED headlights; Passenger Seat Belt Reminder as well as a Rear Seat Reminder. The Legacy and Outback remain competitively priced with only a $150 increase from the previous model year and arrive at Subaru retailers in October.

Now standard on all trim levels, Steering Responsive LED headlights (low and high beam) for improved visibility when driving at night. The Steering Responsive Headlight system aims the headlight beams in the direction the vehicle is traveling on curved roads.

In an effort to prevent child and/or pet entrapment, a Rear Seat Reminder is now standard on all Legacy and Outback trims. The system reminds the driver to check the rear seat area before exiting the vehicle.

Also new for the year, a standard Seat Belt Reminder detects passengers in the front and/or rear seating position and gives an audible and visual warning if their seatbelt has not been fastened.

Subaru has some nice cars out today for normal folks. Adaptive steering LED head lights are definitely a nice touch.

A $23k AWD Legacy seems like an incredible value. I'm sure it's boring with a low rent interior and crap wheels, but still a compelling package.

Well, they're not completely wrong by saying "new model", and acknowledging that the upgrades are "slick". 2020 Legacy has only been out for a year. And 2021 does have a few nice upgrades, especially if you're considering an entry-level Legacy.

The Legacy is definitely a great value considering the standard tech/features.

Too bad it's so big and bloated nowadays...

42% obesity rate, and the majority of all Americans are overweight. And the reasons for many of the Covid deaths. Poor immune systems, and overweight.

Going back to the future product slide that was leaked recently by AutoGuide: does anyone know more about the Wilderness trim Outback that's supposed come out Spring 2021?

Except all that black unpainted plastic on it. This isn't an Outback, looks cheap and gaudy. I think it looks terrible on the new Outbacks, it's just too much and the plastic is smooth. Which makes it look like you bought a low end trim and yet on the inside you could have Nappa leather...

Subjective. I'm looking at a red one and silver one right now and the black cladding on the front doesn't look bad to me.

Yes very subjective. However the additional use of unpainted plastic on a standard tarmac sedan to me looks cheap and they had to make the black plastic go all the way across the middle. Why not just keep it around the fog lights at least.

That black Outback on the right is an abomination in my eyes. I actually went to the store in my wife's Ascent yesterday and came out to see a new Outback next to it. It looked so cheap compared to the Ascent and Outbacks are not cheap vehicles.

One nice thing about all the plastic is that it doesn't have to be repainted when a car is repaired after an accident.

No, but it pits a lot easier than a painted surface.

I actually plasti dip color match my fog surrounds on my Legacy. Offers a little bit of protection and doesn’t look as bad

True, but the OB is a lot nicer inside then the Ascent with the tacky fake blond carbon fiber shelf running across the bottom of the dash

Carbon fiber shelf, this is new to me on an Ascent? I also don't know if you meant bland or blonde or an off-white cream color?

Really looking to pick up an XT, really wish the Sport Trip or color blackout package would be an option.
