Starting at $28,910, the Outback Premium gives owners a chance to partake in more of what Subaru has to offer, so it’s no surprise that this represents the volume trim. At this point, Outbacks come standard with fog lamps, a power driver’s seat, dual-zone automatic climate controls, and body-colored exterior rearview mirrors that – thanks to the included All-Weather Package – are heated like the front seats and windshield. Also included is an upgraded Starlink infotainment system with a larger eight-inch display, cloud-based Magellan navigation software, SiriusXM satellite radio, HD Radio, and a CD player, plus two additional speakers.
Options here include the $1,695 Power Moonroof Package, which includes a moonroof (duh) and a power liftgate. The $1,995 EyeSight Driver Assist Technology Package adds the entire EyeSight safety suite (adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, and lane-departure warning with lane-keep assist) blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, automatic high beams, and the power tailgate. There's also a package that marries the EyeSight suite with the Power Moonroof Package and adds an integrated navigation system – it rings up at $3,590.
Also, from here on out, a subscription to Subaru’s “Starlink Safety and Security Plus” service – a SiriusXM Services-based alternative to General Motor’s OnStar – is available for $49 the first year ($149 for two after that), and includes remote locking, a horn-and-lights-based vehicle locator, security alarm and automatic collision notifications, and roadside-assistance and stolen vehicle recovery services, all via a built-in AT&T 4G LTE wireless setup.
