Hold the Line: Subaru Announces Minimal Price Increases for 2014 Legacy, Outback

posted in Uncategorized |

Subaru knows its thrifty New England diehard customers don’t take easily to change—one look at the 2014 Forester explains that attitude—so for 2014, it’s only asking a few bucks more for the Legacy sedan and Outback wagon.

There won’t be much room for a riot, as Subaru has only bumped the destination charges, not the base prices, of most models. For the 2014 Legacy, that’s $25 for a total of $21,090. Not much changes on this all-wheel-drive sedan save for the All-Weather package that includes heated seats, mirrors, and a windshield-wiper de-icer; previously a $500 option, it is now standard on the four-cylinder 2.5i Premium model. Premium models also include a 4.3-inch display for the audio system and standard satellite radio. Together, all this standard equipment adds $300 more to the 2.5i Premium; in previous years these features were only available as part of a $2700 Harman/Kardon package. Pricing for the 2014 Legacy 3.6R Limited is unchanged from the 2013 version; the 3.6R Premium model is gone (don’t worry, we almost forgot about it, too).

It’s the same story for the 2014 Outback, except the $24,320 price adds an extra $30. Like the Legacy, the Outback Premium 2.5i receives the All-Weather package, the upgraded audio system and standard satellite radio for a $300 increase. The revised 2.5-liter 173-hp flat-four that delivered greater fuel economy in 2013 is here, along with an optional 3.6-liter flat-six developing 256 horsepower. The CVT stays on all four-cylinder models, save for the base 2.5i, which can still be ordered with a six-speed manual. The 3.6R model reserves the five-speed automatic; as with the Legacy, the 2014 Outback 3.6R Limited model keeps the same MSRP as the 2013 version, while the 3.6R Premium model is no longer available.

One more thing to remember: Subaru automatically tacks on an extra $300 for a “PZEV package” for buyers in the 14 states that follow California’s clean-air laws–including most of New England and Washington, D.C. New Hampshire residents can’t complain one bit, as they’re exempt from both PZEV and state sales tax.
