Legacy and Outback models here now
Subaru's 2009 Legacy and Outback models have arrived, headlined by Special Edition 2.5i models which add luxury features at a modest price.
The Special Edition Legacy sedan and wagon in five-speed manual and four-stage automatic adds full leather upholstery and eight-way power adjustable driver’s seat to the standard 2.5 models for just an extra $1000.
The Outback Special Edition, with a choice of either transmission, adds full leather upholstery and eight-way power adjustable front seats to the standard 2.5 models for just an extra $1000.
“These special edition models are great value for money,” said Graeme Woodlands, the Managing Director of Subaru of New Zealand. “The package of extras is worth about $3000 at a very modest price increase.”
All 2009 Legacy and Outback models now have tinted rear side windows and rear window, a feature that was previously only available on the top of the range versions.
And the McIntosh 14-speaker sound system that was previously only fitted to the three litre and GT models has been extended to the 2.5-litre Luxury Legacy models.
Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC), Subaru’s electronic stability control system has been extended to all Legacy and Outback models, having only been fitted to the automatic gearbox versions up until now.
All Legacy and Outback come with symmetrical All Wheel Drive, six airbags, ABS braking and Electronic Brake-force Distribution, height and telescopic adjustable steering columns, climate control air conditioning, cruise control, trip computer, headlights auto off, alloy wheels, remote central locking and immobiliser security system with DataDots.
All models have an ANCAP 5-star crash test rating
