New front design
Two new colors

A new rear bumper
Around the back, the Outback gets a new rear bumper integrated with the rear reflector.
Upgraded infotainment system
The 2023 Outback multi-media system is upgraded to generation 4.5. The infotainment system now supports wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Subaru says the system gets new tweaks to make it more user-friendly. The cooled seats and menus are now controlled easily from the touchscreen, and you don’t have to scroll through multiple screens.
New fender cladding
The 2023 Outback gets new, more prominent cladding that runs above the wheel arch for added protection to the vehicle. It’s now similar to the look of the Wilderness trim level.
The 2023 Outback gets the improved EyeSight driver assist safety technology. It now has a broader field of view with new software and is more accurate in seeing danger ahead. Limited and Touring models now have a new monocular camera for pedestrian and bicycle alerts. Subaru also sealed the cameras for protection against fingerprints, dirt and dust, and damage to the viewing system.
Electronic brake booster
Subaru now uses an electronic brake booster with EyeSight for an improved automatic and emergency braking feel. The 2022 Outback had a mechanical brake booster.
Rear seat pockets
All trims above the Base and Premium now have a divided rear seat pocket for storing small electronic devices and more oversized items.
A new illuminated USB plug
It’s now easier to see the USB plug at night, which is now illuminated.
A new Smart rearview mirror
The new Smart rearview mirror, previously only available on the Ascent, is now available on 2023 Touring and Outback XT trims. A rearview camera mounted on the roof with a video feed shows the rearview for added safety when backing up.
