2023 Subaru Legacy: A Simplified Offer, Starting Price Set at $32,995 CAD
Subaru Canada has shared pricing and trim details for the 2023 Legacy, which gets a simplified product range and loses its most-affordable base version. Last year’s five trims are whittled down to three for the tweaked sedan, with buyers having the choice of a Touring, Limited or GT variant.
That means there’s no more base model Convenience trim (2022 MSRP: $26,795, before fees and taxes) in 2023. The cheapest Legacy thus becomes the Touring version, tagged at $32,995 CAD. That represents an increase of $2,100 over the 2022 Touring trim, which was the second-cheapest model in the lineup.
It’s followed for 2023 by the Limited at $36,995 and the GT at $41,995. The latter replaces the Limited GT and Premier GT versions offered previously, and it marks the breaking of the $40,000 barrier for the sedan in our market.
The base engine for the 2023 Legacy is a naturally aspirated 2.5L Subaru Boxer engine generating 182 hp and 176 lb-ft of torque. The GT version gets a 2.4L turbocharged Subaru Boxer unit good for 260 hp and 277 lb-ft of torque. Both work with a CVT (continuously variable transmission) with 8-speed manual mode usable via paddle shifters on the steering wheel.
Fuel consumption is given as 8.7L/100 km (city) and 6.7L/100 km (highway) for the 2.5L engine, and 10.1L/100 km (highway) and 7.5L/100 km for the 2.4L turbo engine.Read more
