The 2016 Subaru Legacy will start from $22,540 including destination while the 2016 Subaru Outback pricing will start at $25,845.
Both cars were redesigned for the 2015 model year, so there aren’t any significant changes to the 2016 models as they arrive in dealerships this summer. The biggest change is the addition of the Japanese automaker’s new Subaru Starlink Safety and Security features to both models.
Premium and Limited trim models now feature the company’s Starlink Safety and Security features that adds services including SOS Emergency Assistance, Enhanced Roadside Assistance, Automatic Collision Notification, Maintenance Notifications, Monthly Vehicle Health Report and Diagnostic Alert. There is also a Starlink Safety Plus & Security Plus Package that adds Stolen Vehicle Recovery Service, Vehicle Security Alarm Notification, Remote Lock/Unlock, Remote Horn and Lights and Remote Vehicle Locator
The 2016 Subaru Outback is powered by a 2.5-liter Boxer engine mated to a standard Lineartronic CVT, returning 25 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway. A more powerful 3.6-liter six-cylinder Boxer engine is also available on the Outback, providing 256 hp.
Powerplants for the 2016 Subaru Legacy are the same as the Outback, with the 2.5-liter Boxer engine offering 175 hp while returning 26 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway when equipped with the standard CVT. For the 2016 model year, both vehicles receive a new auto on/off mode that operates the windshield wipers with the headlights, while the electric power-assist steering has been tuned to “provide an even more linear and natural feel.”
