2023 subaru outback price up slightly, new onyx trim bows

Subaru Canada has shared pricing and build details for its 2023 Outback, which introduces a new Onyx trim this year.

Buyers will have a total of seven trims to choose from for the 2023 model year, still starting with the Convenience at $32,695, a few hundred more than it was 2022; and topping out at $46,395 for the Premier XT. The new Onyx builds on the Touring ($36,995) trim and comes with black exterior finishes, 18-inch gunmetal alloy wheels, black badging, rear bumper step, grey two-tone interior, special wrapped seats, heated rear outboard seats, and more for $38,695. Subaru’s press release did not include images of the Onyx trim, so you’ll have to imagine the black bits yourself for now.

At the top end of the offerings, the Wilderness ($43,195), Limited XT ($43,995), and Premier XT ($46,395) are powered by a 2.4-litre turbocharged Boxer engine good for 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque. The Limited trim ($40,995) and the three options below it (Onyx, Touring, and Convenience), meanwhile, all use the basic 2.5-litre Boxer engine with 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque. All models run through gears with a Lineartronic CVT with 8-speed with wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

As detailed in previous coverage, the new Outback bears a bit of a new rugged look with a reworked fascia and grille, updated lights, and extra cladding.

Subaru stepped up the safety tech on display in the popular SUV for this year, too, fitting all models with version four of its EyeSight Driver Assist system – which the brand says has been updated with a wider field of view, better software, and the addition of an electric brake booster – to operate “more smoothly and under a greater range of conditions.” The Premier XT trim also features a new Wide-Angle Mono Camera to help spot pedestrians and cyclists, plus a full LCD Smart Rearview Mirror.

The refreshed 2023 Subaru Outback is expected to arrive in dealers later this year.

Subaru also mid-August revealed pricing for its 2023 Legacy: Touring kicks off at $32,995; the Limited starts at $36,995; and the GT trim tops it off at $41,995. A revised front fascia is supposed to give the car a bolder look; and the Eyesight Driver Assist tech is now standard, and includes Automatic Emergency Steering. On GT, Eyesight works with a new Wide-Angle Mono Camera to better detect pedestrians in intersections.

The Impreza – now available only in hatchback form – similarly comes standard with Eyesight on CVT-equipped models. Its trim walk begins with Convenience, then runs through Touring, Sport, and finally Sport-tech. A Convenience-trim Impreza with a five-speed manual starts at a $23,295 MSRP, while the Sport-tech will cap the range at $32,895.
