CAMDEN, N.J. – An enhanced EyeSight Driver Assist Technology system (ADAS) will be a standard feature in the 2023 Subaru Outback sport-utility vehicle (SUV) and Legacy Sedan.

The latest generation of the ADAS operates more smoothly and under a greater range of conditions. These improvements are the result of a wider field of view, updated control software, and the addition of an electric brake booster.

The company recently announced this upgrade along with other enhancements and changes, as well as pricing.

The Outback Onyx Edition trim level is available with two engine options and the Legacy Sport comes standard with a 2.4-liter turbo SUBARU BOXER engine. Both models will begin arriving at Subaru retailers this fall.
The 2023 Legacy and Outback (except Wilderness) receive a bolder look thanks to a new front fascia incorporating a more prominent grille and redesigned LED headlights. On the sides of Outback (except Wilderness), the expanded wheel arch cladding adds to the vehicle’s new look while providing additional protection.

The 2023 Outback and Legacy make available the latest version of the SUBARU STARLINK 11.6-inch Multimedia Plus system with standard wireless Apple CarPlay and wireless Android Auto with full screen display.

The system features an 11.6-inch high-resolution touchscreen with combination meter integration and improved on-screen controls for audio, HVAC, X-MODE® (on Outback), and other vehicle functions. Additional standard features include Bluetooth® hands-free phone and audio streaming connectivity; AM/FM stereo; rear vision camera; SiriusXM® and SiriusXM Travel Link® (4-month free Platinum subscription); HD Radio®; over-the-air updates; and new Valet Mode.

The top-level Touring adds a Wide-Angle Mono Camera that works with the dual-camera EyeSight system. The additional camera expands the field of view even further to recognize pedestrians and bicycles sooner when the vehicle enters an intersection at low speed. EyeSight gives an alert to the driver and, when necessary, applies brakes to avoid collisions.

 On models equipped with Blind-Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, EyeSight now includes Automatic Emergency Steering. The two systems work in conjunction to help avoid a collision with an obstacle at speeds less than 50 mph.
