(MISSISSAUGA, ONT.)—Subaru Canada, Inc. today announced the 2023
Outback debut at the New York International Auto Show. The legendary
SUV receives updated styling as well as new safety and in-vehicle
technologies. Also new for 2023, the Onyx boasts trim-specific interior
and exterior features.

For the 2023 model year, Outback will be available in Convenience, Touring, Onyx, Limited, Wilderness, Limited XT, and Premier XT trim levels. The XT and Wilderness models come standard with the powerful 2.4-litre turbocharged SUBARU BOXER engine. Also, in conjunction with EyeSight version four, a new Wide-Angle Mono Camera is added to the Premier XT trim. 

With the exception of the recently released Wilderness, the Outback lineup receives a bolder look thanks to a new front fascia incorporating a more prominent grille, redesigned LED headlights and fog lights, and a more rugged front bumper cover. On the sides, the expanded wheel arch cladding adds to the vehicle’s rugged new look while providing additional protection. 

The 2023 Outback comes standard with the latest version of EyeSight Driver Assist Technology. 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.

The top-level Premier XT trim adds a Wide-Angle Mono Camera that works together with the dual-camera EyeSight system. The additional camera further expands the field of view 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 with crossing bicycles and pedestrians. Also new for Premier XT is a full LCD Smart Rearview Mirror with auto-dimming, compass, and Homelink. 

On models equipped with Subaru Rear/Side Vehicle Detection (SRVD), EyeSight includes Automatic Emergency Steering. The new feature works in conjunction with the Pre-Collision Braking System to help avoid a collision at speeds less than 80 km/h.
