With all that, the restyling of the two vehicles is the icing for a technologically beautiful cake. Up front, Legacy and Outback have a revised grille, bumper, headlight assemblies, and fog lights that give them fresh faces. In addition, Premium and Limited models have newly designed, sporty, 17-inch wheels.
Owners asked for it, and Subaru responded. The 2013 Outback now has rear cross bars with an adjustable spread of 9.8 inches to better handle canoes and kayaks of varying sizes.
Available on all 2.5i Limited and 3.6R Limited Outback models, the Special Appearance Package sets apart the optioned vehicle with unique features. Outside, it has Machine Finish Gray alloy wheels and gray grille, door handles, and mirrors (with integrated turn signals). Headlights have a black inner bezel, and the rear bumper cover is black. These touches will turn heads!
Inside, package features include a drawing-room-like Saddle Brown Leather interior, a 10-way power driver’s seat with two-position memory, and woodgrain patterned matte finish accent trim. Subaru also debuts another innovation with this package – the convenience of Keyless Access & Start.
The Keyless Access & Start system unlocks, locks, and starts the vehicle without using a key. The system’s remote transmitter makes it easy to lock and unlock the driver’s door and rear gate via touch sensors. The engine starts and stops by a button instead of a key.
