Differences Between 2019 Subaru Legacy & 2019 Subaru Outback

Serving Atlanta, Lawrenceville, and Duluth

The 2019 Subaru Legacy enters another generation as a mid-size sedan with premium amenities. The 2019 Subaru Outback is a versatile vehicle that has a design with elements of a crossover SUV and station wagon. Both models are powered by the BOXER engine and other patented mechanical systems. An 8.0-inch infotainment system with the STARLINK software is available in these Subaru cars.

Performance

The BOXER badge decorates the four-cylinder engine block that's installed in the 2019 Legacy and Outback. Made of aluminum alloy, this iconic DOHC powertrain produces up to 175 horsepower at 5,800 RPM. You'll need to get the tachometer reading to at least 4,000 RPM to extract 174 pound-feet of torque from this horizontally opposed engine. Both models are available with a 3.6 L engine that's also marked with the BOXER logo. This six-cylinder engine whips out just more than 255 hp and under 250 lb-ft of torque. Based on proven success in previous generations, the drivetrain in both Subaru vehicles has the Symmetrical AWD design. The front and rear wheels get torque from the Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission. Some of the industry-leading features of this CVT include the Adaptive Control and Manual Mode with six options. The Hill Holder is integrated into both cars, and the Incline Start Assist is installed in the Outback. Designed for light-duty travel, this crossover SUV can tow 2,700 pounds.

Interior

Subaru offers the 8.0-inch STARLINK Multimedia System for the 2019 Legacy and Outback. Hosted on cloud networks, the digital applications in this trademark infotainment console deliver the latest connectivity. SiriusXM Satellite Radio sends traffic and weather updates to the navigation system. Some of the music channels that are included in the STARLINK portal include iHeartRadio, Aha, Pandora and HD Radio. In addition to having Bluetooth, both Subaru cars facilitate smartphone connections through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Near Field Communication (NFC) technology also takes the hassle out of using cables to connect a mobile device with the multimedia hub. The sound system in the Legacy and Outback has 12 premium speakers by Harman Kardon. Producing more than 570 watts, the GreenEdge amplifier improves acoustics from your favorite audio sources.

Safety

The 2019 Legacy and Outback boast standard accident-mitigation technology by the EyeSight Driver Assist platform. A front crash might be avoided or mitigated by the Pre-Collision Braking. If you want to maintain a safe distance behind another car on the highway, let the Adaptive Cruise Control make the appropriate judgment. The Lane Keep Assist generates instant steering leverage if the wheels depart from a straight path. You'll also be alerted on dangerous lane departures and swaying in the dashboard. Both Subaru cars offer the Reverse Automatic Braking, which gives you peace of mind for pulling out of a parking space or backing up on a narrow road. This automatic braking technology and the Rear Cross-Traffic Alert are not included in the EyeSight Driver Assist package. Similarly, the Blind Spot Detection is a driving aide that's not standard in the Legacy and Outback. Both vehicles have a rear vision camera that records videos in high resolution.
