Subaru Legacy 2023 Outside Mirrors Touring XT
The exterior mirrors on the 2023 Subaru Legacy Touring XT are state-of-the-art and designed with safety in mind. These heated, electronically adjustable, and power-folding mirrors provide convenience in a variety of driving scenarios. Their turn signal indicators that are integrated along with potential blind-spot detection systems help to improve safety when changing lanes and maneuvering. The driving experience is further enhanced by features like memory settings and auto-dimming capabilities. The intelligent design and usefulness of the outside mirrors in the Touring XT demonstrate Subaru’s dedication to innovation and practicality, providing drivers with better vision and ease of use.
Convex mirror (passenger side)
Objects look smaller in a convex mirror and farther away than when viewed in a flat mirror. Do not use the convex mirror to judge the distance of vehicles behind you when changing lanes. Use the inside mirror (or glance backward) to determine the actual size and distance of objects that you view in the convex mirror.
Make sure to adjust the mirrors before driving.
