2021 Subaru Outback, Legacy Get Minor Price Bump, More Standard Tech

In April last year, Subaru introduced the new Outback during the 2019 New York Auto Show and a few months later, it went on sale with a starting price of $26,645. Now, the rugged wagon, together with the Legacy, is entering the 2021 model year with a small price increase and a number of equipment upgrades across the range.

The two models will be at the company’s showrooms from October this year starting at $22,895 and $26,795 without destination and delivery, respectively for the 2012 Legacy and 2021 Outback. These figures represent a $150 bump over the 2020 pricing for both cars.

For the 2021 model year, all trim levels for both the Outback and Legacy get cornering full-LED headlights (low beam and high beam) as standard equipment, as well as a Passenger Seat Belt Reminder and Rear Seat Reminder. Meanwhile, the range-topping Outback Touring XT and Legacy Touring XT start from $40,995 and $37,070, respectively, while for the 2020 MY the prices were $39,695 and $35,895.

The 2021 Legacy will be available in a total of six trim levels – Base, Premium, Sport, Limited, Limited XT, and the aforementioned Touring XT. All models come with Subaru’s symmetrical all-wheel drive and either a 2.5-liter naturally aspirated or 2.4-liter turbocharged engine. 

As for the 2021 Outback, it will remain on sale in Base, Premium, Limited, Touring, Onyx Edition XT, Limited XT, and Touring XT trims. There’s a new color (Brilliant Bronze Metallic) available for the Premium trim, as well as two optional packages, adding goodies such as a hands-free electric tailgate, keyless access, moonroof, and larger infotainment screen.
