Cherry Hill, N.J. – Subaru of America, Inc. today introduced the 2017 Outback Touring and Legacy Sport trim levels. The models will arrive into retailers later this Summer.
2017 Subaru Outback Touring
As the new flagship model, the 2017 Outback Touring features a dark gray grille and 18-in. wheels with dark gray accents and a machined finish. Low-profile roof rails in a silver finish along with lower cladding and Outback badging in chrome accentuate the unique styling of this model.
Outback Touring models are available in both the 2.5-liter, 175-hp, 4-cyl and the powerful 3.6-liter, 256-hp, 6-cylinder engines. Brilliant Brown is added to the exterior color options while all Touring interiors feature a new Java Brown perforated leather-trimmed upholstery, door panels, and armrests with contrasting ivory stitching. Refinements including a unique woodgrain interior finish and piano-black switch panel accents complete the signature look. A heated steering wheel is also standard on Touring trim.
Debuting on the 2017 Outback model line, Reverse Automatic Braking helps the driver avoid a possible collision when the vehicle is moving in reverse. The system uses four ultrasonic sonar sensors located in the rear bumper cover and can automatically stop the vehicle. Subaru’s highly-rated EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology along with Blind Spot Detection and Rear Cross Traffic Alert are standard and are paired with the new High Beam Assist feature. This system works in conjunction with EyeSight to automatically switch the headlights between the high and low settings when an oncoming vehicle is detected.
