The 2009 Subaru Legacy Outback doesn't have an especially long—or robust—feature set; even though all-wheel drive is standard, there's still a lot of room for improvement inside.
Edmunds states, "Standard equipment on the base trim includes 16-inch steel wheels, roof rails, air-conditioning, a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel...keyless entry, an outside temperature display, and full power accessories." Cars.com reports that all 2009 Subaru Outbacks "come fairly well-equipped with power windows and door locks ... and remote keyless entry"—but little more, which is a disappointment, considering the base 2009 Subaru Outback sticker price. A 440-watt Harman-Kardon premium audio system is newly standard for 2009.
The 3.0R Limited model can be lavishly equipped, yet prices will top $35,000 with a few options. And still, these vehicles are without Bluetooth, standard satellite radio, or iPod connectivity, features that are becoming commonplace in vehicles costing far less.
