2013 Subaru Legacy and Outback introduced ahead of New York auto show
By Jake Lingeman, AutoWeek
Subaru sent out details on the 2013 Legacy and Outback models on Thursday prior to the New York auto show. In addition to the EyeSight system we talked about earlier this month, the cars will get a light restyling, light retuning and a handful of interior and efficiency improvements.
We'll start with the 2013 Subaru Legacy, which gets a new grille, headlights and bumper cover. Base models will get a more efficient version of Subaru's 2.5-liter boxer engine with broader torque delivery. Power from the 2.5i will be transmitted to all four wheels through either a six-speed manual or Subaru's second-generation Lineartronic continuously variable transmission. Power is similar to last year's output, with the four-cylinder making 173 hp.
