Subaru Announces Prices for 2011 Legacy and Outback
Subaru just announced pricing for the 2011 Legacy and 2011 Outback, bumping up sticker prices slightly, despite having experienced exceptionally strong sales this year.
The Legacy sedan, redesigned in 2010, and its crossover brother, the Outback, enjoyed year-to-date sales increases of 87% and 128%, respectively.
Yet the 2011 Legacy pricing (ranging from $19,995 for the 2.5i on up to $31,395 for the 2.5GT Limited) increased a mere $300 to $405 due to more standard features (such as satellite radio, and in the 2.5GT Limited, a power moonroof).
The Outback was nudged up a tiny $200 for the lower trims and $500 for the upper trims, partly thanks to the satellite radio.
Though it's tempting to act now, we always recommend waiting several months before buying a newly introduced model so that supply has a chance to catch up with demand.
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar No-Haggle, CarsDirect, and Ryde Shopper are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
