BOLD DESIGN
The Outback’s exterior emphasizes ruggedness
and functionally while evoking a sense of
adventure. For 2023, the Outback lineup
(except Wilderness) receives a new front fascia
that includes an aggressive front bumper cover;
larger grille; and redesigned LED headlights
and fog lights. The wheel arch cladding has
been updated to improve functionality.
The interior design uses a wide windshield and
long lines from the center of the instrument
panel to the door panels to create an open
environment. The tablet-style 11.6-inch Full
HD center information display (dual 7.0-inch
display on base) offers direct touch controls
for multimedia, HVAC, X-MODE, and
vehicle settings. The top-of-the-line Touring
trim leverages luxurious appointments inside
and out, including new Black Nappa leather
with contrasting tan stitching, high-gloss
black molding for the pillars, chrome plating
decorated door handles and satin tone plated
side mirrors.

The Outback lineup (except the recently
released Wilderness) 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
bolder 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 Touring 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 Touring is a full LCD Smart RearView Mirror with auto-dimming, compass, and
Homelink®.
On models equipped with Blind-Spot
Detection with Lane Change Assist and
Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, EyeSight includes
Automatic Emergency Steering. The new
feature works in conjunction with the PreCollision Braking System to help avoid a
collision at speeds less than 50 mph.
ONYX EDITION UPDATES
The Onyx Edition is now available with
the 2.5-liter naturally aspirated SUBARU
BOXER® engine. The Onyx Edition features
black-finish exterior elements, 18-inch alloy
wheels, and badging as well as an exclusive
gray two-tone interior. Further, the seats
are wrapped in a water-repellant durable
StarTex® material. The Onyx Edition builds
on the Premium trim and adds Hands-Free
Power Gate; Front View Monitor; Dual-Mode
X-MODE; and full-size spare tire.

PERFORMANCE AND CAPABILITY
The 2023 Outback delivers the optimal blend
of SUV capability and car-like ride and
handling with standard Subaru Symmetrical
All-Wheel Drive, Active Torque Vectoring,
Vehicle Dynamics Control and X-MODE
with Hill Descent Control. The 8.7 inches of
ground clearance (9.5 inches for Wilderness)
is greater than that of many SUVs, yet the
Outback maintains a comfortably low step-in
height for both front and rear passenger entry.
Standard on XT models, the 2.4-liter
turbocharged BOXER engine delivers robust
all-around performance with 260 horsepower
at 5,600 rpm and 277 lb-ft of torque at 2,000
rpm. Meanwhile, the standard naturally
aspirated 2.5-liter BOXER has a responsive
182 horsepower at 5,800 rpm and 176 lb-ft of
torque at 4,400 rpm.
All 2023 Outback models are paired with
a Lineartronic CVT featuring an 8-speed
manual mode function with steering wheel
paddle shifters. The 2.4-liter turbo delivers
an estimated 23/30 mpg city/highway and has
a 3,500-lb. towing capacity, the most of any

Outback in history. The 2.5-liter achieves up to
an estimated 33 mpg and a range of more than
600 miles on a single tank.
STRUCTURE AND SAFETY
Introduced for 2017, the Subaru Global
Platform has been optimized for the Outback,
boasting a structure that is 70-percent stiffer in
both torsional and front-suspension rigidity.
It is also 100-percent stiffer in both front
lateral flexural and rear subframe rigidity
compared to the previous Outback’s platform.
Crash protection is improved, as the new body
absorbs over 40-percent more energy in front/
side crashes than the prior model. When a
crash is unavoidable, the Outback protects
driver and passengers with eight standard
airbags, including a driver knee airbag. Subaru
expects the 2023 Outback will achieve top
safety scores when it is tested later this year,
including a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from
the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety
(IIHS).
Standard EyeSight Driver Assist Technology
includes Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control
with Lane Centering, which provides steering

assist when the vehicle veers toward the outside
of its lane, helping the driver maintain a
direct path. The DriverFocus™ Distraction
Mitigation System uses a dedicated infrared
camera and facial recognition technology to
identify signs of driver fatigue or distraction
and provides audio and visual warnings to
alert the driver and passengers. Additional
available driver-assist technologies include
Reverse Automatic Braking; and EyeSight
Assist Monitor with head-up display.
An available Front View Monitor captures
images within the driver’s blind spots in front
of the vehicle and displays a 180-degree view
on the 11.6-inch display, providing safety and
assistance when checking road conditions
ahead, parking, and off-roading.
COMFORT, CONVENIENCE, AND
VERSATILITY
All trim levels feature power door locks,
windows and side mirrors; Welcome Lighting;
Sound Insulation Windshield; and One-Touch
Folding Rear Seats. Moving up to the Premium
trim adds the All-Weather Package; a 10-way
power front driver seat with lumbar support;

and LED rear gate light. The Limited trim
gains Keyless Entry with Push-Button Start
and heated rear seats (outboard position). The
Touring trim adds ventilated front seats and a
heated steering wheel (360-degree) to its roster
of standard features.
For powering and pairing personal devices,
Outback provides front and rear USB A
ports and two 12-volt DC power sockets as
standard. Front and rear USB C ports are
added to Premium trim and higher.
With a cargo floor length of 75 inches with
the rear seatbacks folded, the 2023 Outback
offers up to 75.6 cu ft of cargo. And with
a wide rear gate opening, the Outback can
comfortably accommodate long items such
as camping gear, golf clubs or strollers. For
added convenience while loading the vehicle,
an available Hands-Free Power Gate allows the
owner to open the rear gate by simply waving
in front of the Subaru emblem (positioned in
the center of the rear gate), and a single-touch
lifting cargo cover provides easier access. For
additional cargo versatility, the Outback offers
standard roof rails with tie-down points and

SUBARU IN-VEHICLE TECHNOLOGY

vehicle features. Additional standard features
include new Valet Mode; Bluetooth® handsfree phone and audio streaming connectivity;

The 2023 Outback is the first vehicle in the
Subaru model line up to integrate what3words

that provides a simple way to communicate
precise locations using just three simple words.
W3W has divided the world into a grid of
10-foot squares and given each square a unique
combination of three words -- a what3words
address. Customers can navigate to and share
trailheads, scenic overlooks and other hard
to find places with precise accuracy using just
three words. The feature is standard on models
equipped with the STARLINK 11.6-inch
Multimedia Navigation system.
The Outback is built at Subaru of Indiana
Automotive (SIA) in Lafayette, Indiana along
with the Ascent, Impreza, and Legacy.
