Does anyone have a list of available port-installed accessories and list pricing? I'm probably going to add a few things to my order to save install costs, but I can't find a list anywhere.

I haven’t found anything yet either. May have to wait for the online configurator to go live. Otherwise we’d need someone from a dealership with access to the Subaru systems to share this full listing.

2nd-row sunshades - $76

3rd-row sunshade - $52

Someone else on here said that their dealer said they would have the list on Wednesday. So, take that with a grain of salt, but we shall see..
That was me and I still have not heard from the dealership about this.


Granted I'm really only looking to add all weather mats.

Nice JD33!!! That's a great start, Thanks!

I wonder if the all weather floor liners are like Weathertech's with side protection. I've been disappointed with the Subaru all weather mats and ended up just paying the small fortune for the Weathertech floor liners for the better coverage and protection from nasty winters.

Good to know maybe I'll skip ordering the all weather mats as I can always pick up a set later!:tango_face_wink:

I got the all weather mats for my Outback '15 but never used them. I ordered the Husky mats instead. At least for that year, they were better than Weathertech because they covered the left foot pad where I often rest my foot. I still have my '15 mats in their plastic bags. Nothing wrong with the mats but if you want full coverage and a side "lip", you have to go elsewhere.

Thanks for posting the list. I'm probably going to wind up with a few of these, certainly the hitch (as dealers tend to charge about $400 for the install).

Living in a northern state that gets messy winters we almost have no choice but to get Weather Tech mats or something with a higher side profile, unless people like getting salt stains on their carpets! They can be removed but always easier to prevent them in the first place

Essential Accessories?

What are the most commonly ordered accessories? Any that should be consider essential to protect the car or increase it’s longevity etc.? I may have missed it but can crossbars for the roof rack be ordered from the factory?
Hope this is the right forum for this question,post.

If you look at the 2nd popular package, you can't order it from the dealer right now because the crossbars can't be factory added. Not sure if that will always be the case. Other than adding the rear bumper cover (which I think should be standard), I'm not sure that I think anything is essential. I do think that if you bought the base model, you might want to make sure you could tow 5000 lbs instead of 2000 lbs. I didn't have the accessory options for the base model to see if that can be added.

Pop Pkg 2 is Ext Auto dimming, Rear Bumper Cover, Cargo Tray, All weather liners, and splash guards. It doesn't have crossbars on it, those are a stand alone accessory (that we can't order with new ones right now).

And I don't know what the difference is in the car itself is, but the Base Model is only rated for 2,000 lbs while the Premium and above are rated for 5,000 lbs. That probably has something to do with the trailer assist package that's only on the higher trim levels, but I can neither confirm or deny that at this point. Note also that for towing ANYTHING more than 1,500 pounds, Subaru recommends trailer brakes.

From personal experience, when I was towing my 12' cargo hauler with my pickup and hit a pothole, destroying the tire, making the trailer hit the ground, and then bending the axle, it's a VERY scary thing to have happen, even WITH trailer brakes. (I ended up having to call a wrecker to have my trailer towed in, even though I had a spare and an actual small floor jack, due to the damage to the axle.)

Carl I suspect the tow rating has something to do with the stability / sway control that is sorta mentioned but not really explained in any detail. I would be really surprised if it was some type of integrated trailer brake system. My guess is its just added smarter logic that you trigger with a tow mode switch and the stability system then has some kind of sway logic that plays with throttle control and the brake vectoring ability of the stability system.

The base model probably lacks the tow mode logic. But structuraly they are the same vehicles.

The base model doesn't have a tranny cooler. Here is a link that gives some insight to the testing involved in determining a tow rating. The Davis Dam test sounds pretty brutal.

Did Subaru really hot temp test? This might be a first for them regarding their tow rating. I know their prior ratings on other models were no where near hot temp climb reality.

I would be highly impressed if Subaru published that info. None of their competitors would do that.

Splash guards worth getting? How much value do they really add? When we get the car it will definitely see some dirt roads, snow, and ice so I am tempted to get the splash guards. I have also seen some aftermarket mud flaps on the outback forum. Any thoughts?
