Coming off full redesigns last year, the Subaru Outback wagon and Legacy sedan return for the 2021 model year with minor changes, including a new paint color and a few new standard safety features. The 2021 Subaru Outback and Legacy reach dealerships this October, and prices have increased slightly for both models.
To improve nighttime visibility, steering-responsive LED headlights are now standard across all trim levels on the Outback and Legacy. Rear seat reminder, which prompts drivers to check the rear seat area before exiting the vehicle (for dogs or kids sitting on the seat), is also newly standard, as is a seat belt reminder for front and rear passengers. Finally, both models receive a new Brilliant Bronze Metallic paint color option.

The base 2021 Subaru Outback now goes for $27,845, an increase of $190 from last year. Prices for the Premium, Limited, and Touring trims have likewise increased by $190, while XT turbocharged models are up $290.
For the Legacy, prices start at $23,820 for the base model. Non-turbocharged models see a price hike of $175, while XT models increase by $275.
Just like last year, the Legacy and Outback come standard with a 2.5-liter flat-four engine making 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque. XT models derive power from a 2.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder pumping out 260 ponies and 277 lb-ft of torque. Both engines pair to a CVT transmission. As we’ve noted in past reviews, this potent engine makes the overall driving experience more fun, but suffers from some turbo lag. Although the engine choices aren’t perfect, we appreciate both the Outback and Legacy for delivering a smooth ride, great value, and strong fuel economy in spite of their standard all-wheel drive.
