2017 Subaru Outback Touring, Legacy Sport Bound for Dealerships This Summer

CHERRY HILL, New Jersey — The 2017 Subaru Outback Touring, a new flagship model, and the new 2017 Subaru Legacy Sport will spice up Subaru showrooms this summer.

Pricing will be announced closer to the launch date.

The 2017 Outback Touring is an appearance package that bundles a dark gray grille and 18-inch wheels with dark gray accents. Other cosmetic enhancements include low-profile roof rails in a silver finish, along with lower cladding and chrome Outback badging.

Brilliant Brown is a new Outback exterior color. A new Java Brown cabin treatment on all Touring interiors includes perforated leather-trimmed upholstery, door panels and armrests with ivory stitching.

A heated steering wheel is a standard item on the Touring model.

Buyers get a choice of either the 175-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine or the 256-hp 3.6-liter V6 engine.

The 2017 Legacy Sort features a dark gray grille, foglights with gloss-black housings and 18-inch wheels. Other touches include chrome-accented rocker trim and silver-finished turn-signal mirrors.

The cabin gets a two-tone look that combines gray and black cloth upholstery and blue accent stitching.

The Sport package includes a standard Subaru Starlink 7.0 Multimedia Plus system.

Reverse automatic braking and high-beam assist debut on the 2017 Outback and Legacy. Reverse automatic braking helps the driver to avoid a possible crash when the vehicle is moving in reverse.

The Outback competes against the Ford Escape, GMC Terrain, Jeep Cherokee and Toyota Highlander.

The Legacy takes on the Ford Fusion, Honda Accord, Toyota Camry and Volkswagen Passat.

Edmunds says: Subaru makes the 2017 Legacy and Outback even more appealing to car shoppers getting ready to hit showrooms this summer.
