Camden, N.J. — Subaru of America, Inc. announced the 2023 Legacy midsize sedan with updated styling and new safety and in-vehicle technologies.

The sedan comes standard with the latest generation of EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology and the enhanced system operates more smoothly and under a greater range of conditions. These improvements are thanks to a wider field of view, updated control software, and the addition of an electric brake booster.

Structure and safety

The Legacy is built on the Subaru Global Platform which has been optimized for rigidity and crash absorption. When a crash is unavoidable, the Legacy protects driver and passengers with eight standard airbags, including a driver knee airbag. Subaru expects the 2023 Legacy will achieve top safety scores when it is tested later this year, including a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Standard EyeSight Driver Assist Technology includes Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering, which provides steering assist when the vehicle veers toward the outside of its lane, helping the driver maintain a direct path.

The DriverFocus™ Distraction Mitigation System (standard on Sport and Touring XT trim levels) uses a dedicated infrared camera and facial recognition technology to identify signs of driver fatigue or distraction and provides audio and visual warnings to alert the driver and passengers. Additional driver-assist technologies are available, including Reverse Automatic Braking and EyeSight Assist Monitor with head-up display.

Select 2023 Legacy trim levels are equipped with the latest generation of SUBARU STARLINK Safety and Security. Available packages offer access to emergency services and convenience features including Automatic Collision Notification, Enhanced Roadside Assistance, Stolen Vehicle Recovery, Vehicle Diagnostic Alerts, Remote Engine Start with Climate Control, and more.
