Subaru introduces 2017 Legacy Sport and Outback Touring image

The Japanese automaker has announced the reveal of the 2017 Legacy Sport and Outback Touring, with the models packing fresh styling cues and a more upscale interior.

Taking up first the Legacy Sport we can report the design looks instantly recognizable as the modifications have been very subtle – there’s a new dark gray grille and special fog lights that have been placed inside a gloss black housing. There’s also even more chrome trim, complete with silver mirror caps, and new 18-inch alloy wheels. The custom styling is also found inside the cabin where the owners will get two-tone cloth seats, blue contrast stitching, and faux carbon fiber trim. Other highlights include piano black accents and a Starlink infotainment system with a seven-inch display. Under the hood sits the 2.5-liter four-cylinder boxer engine delivering 175 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque, which has been linked to a Lineartronic continuously variable transmission and a standard all-wheel-drive system.

Moving on, the Outback Touring is somewhat different as it will act as the flagship trim version for the series with dark gray grille, silver roof rails, and 18-inch alloy wheels with dark gray trim. The upscale styling is also present inside the cabin where drivers will find perforated Java Brown leather upholstery, ivory contrast stitching, and woodgrain trim. Other novelties include piano black accents and a 7.0-inch Starlink infotainment system with GPS navigation. Power credentials come courtesy of two engine options. The base is the 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 175 hp and there’s also an optional 3.6-liter six-cylinder churning out 256 hp.
