Get connected with Subaru’s StarLink Infotainment System

Subaru vehicles are known for their rugged versatility, awesome handling and industry-leading safety. We spend a lot of time talking about the benefits of features like all-wheel drive, Eyesight and PZEV technology, but those aren’t the only factors that contribute to the awesome experience of driving a Subaru. With the 2015 models arriving at Subaru of Niagara, we thought it’d be a good time to tell you about another feature that’s making Subarus an even better choice – the STARLINK Infotainment system.

When we told you about the 2015 Outback and Legacy, we mentioned the upgraded in-dash screen and standard rear-view backup camera. What we didn’t tell you about was the vehicles’ compatibility with your Apple or Android smartphone. Enter STARLINK.

Easy Connectivity

You can easily connect your Apple or Android smartphone to the vehicle’s head unit via the standard Bluetooth connectivity or USB port. When using the Bluetooth feature, you have the option of connecting manually through the vehicle’s touchscreen or with the voice command feature. Once your device is set-up and paired with your car, you can have text messages read aloud to you through the audio system and have the ability to respond by voice using 15 preloaded messages (on select trim levels only). The system also has the ability to store up to six different phones, meaning anyone driving the car regularly has the option of connecting their phone without removing yours from the memory.

Get music, news and weather sent to your vehicle

With the new Legacy and Outback, Subaru has also introduced the STARLINK app, available from the Google Play and iTunes app stores. The app, when downloaded and connected, pushes content from your phone to your car’s infotainment system. You can access calendar, news and weather information through the touchscreen and also utilize the included iHeartRadio feature, an all-in-one digital music service featuring millions of songs and thousands of radio stations. Additional apps and services that work with STARLINK will be made available in the future and won’t require any upgrades to the vehicle’s software!


The STARLINK technology is currently available on the 2015 Outback and Legacy models and will be offered on more models soon. We’ll keep you updated as more features become available!

Trick out your Outback with these great accessories!

As you can probably tell by the flurry of blogs and social media posts, we’re pretty excited about the 2015 Outback’s arrival at Subaru of Niagara. Earlier this week we told you about the trim levels available and what each comes with, but there is a whole lot more that you can add to your new Outback to really crank up the driving experience.

If you take a wander over to the Owner Resources section of, you’ll find the available accessories for all of our great vehicles and have the ability to check out what’s available for each model. Clicking on the Outback image on the Accessories page will take you to all the great add-ons that’ll improve the experience and look of your new car!


You can choose from an assortment of carrying attachments to mount on the roof via the standard roof rack or back end via an optional trailer hitch (also available). Cyclists will love the three different options for bike carriers that work on either the roof rack or trailer hitch, while those who catch their thrills on the water will be excited about the Kayak stacker attachment for the roof.  The carrying attachments for sports equipment aren’t limited to warm weather activities either. Drivers can also add a Ski and Snowboard carrier that will hold up to 6 pairs of skis.

If you’re looking for additional carrying space beyond the spacious trunk, Subaru is offering three sizes of roof mounted cargo boxes, suitable for any amount of additional luggage for equipment.  There are also other useful accessories for your interior cargo space including anti-slip mats, cargo nets and dividers.


One of the coolest accessories you can add to your Outback is a rear-seat entertainment system that integrates into the front seat head rests and matches your interior colour. You’ll be able to keep passengers entertained on long rides!

Audiophiles looking for better high frequencies in their music can add a set of tweeters to their standard speaker arrangement to gain a greater range of sound produced by the car’s audio system.

Visual Appeal

It’s no secret that Outbacks are great looking cars, but if you want to add some visual accents, you can choose from an assortment of deflectors for the hood, side windows and sunroof on your car. Drivers who want to stand out even more on the road at night can add Puddle Lights to the exterior of the car or, for notice during the day, moulding accents to the wheel arches.

Inside the car, you can give it a sportier look with a set of STI branded pedals and shift knob (Manual transmission only) or a leather wrapped option for automatics. Anyone looking for a really sleek and unique look for their interior can also add an interior illumination kit that’ll light up foot areas with a cool blue glow. And, of course, no car should be without a set of rubber floor mats to protect your floors during the wet winter months.

To see a complete list of available accessories for the 2015 Outback, check out the owner resources at, or visit Subaru of Niagara!

Take me to the Outback!

Organize your Subaru with these Must-Haves

Posted by Devin Kaulback

Apr 16, 2014 5:10:22 PM


We know you spend a lot of time in your Subaru, and why wouldn't you? We also know that you are already pretty comfortable in your vehicle, but we think we can make your ride even better. How? By helping you get organized. Subaru has some pretty amazing and cost-effective organization solutions for any storage problem you're having, so give Subaru of Niagara a call and we'll get you fitted with exactly what need, like:


Cargo Nets

Hearing your cargo sliding around your trunk when you take a corner isn't exactly a comforting sound. When you're having fun behind the wheel, you don't want to be worried about your valuables in the back. Solution? Get a cargo net that goes from one side of your trunk to the other to secure your stuff.


Cargo Box

If you have a lot of equipment to transport, but also a lot of passengers, you need a way to carry both. Folding down seats isn't an option, so we had to think outside the box...or inside one. A cargo box will allow you to store items up top so you have enough room for everyone and everything.


Cargo Bag

If you are constantly lugging things to and from your Subaru, you may want to consider a Subaru cargo bag. It keeps everything in one place with multiple compartments and is easy to carry to bring your items in. Best of all, it folds flat when you're not using it.


Of course, this is only a sample of what is available to help organize your precious cargo in your Subaru. Whether you're an avid cyclists, paddler, traveler or just need more storage, visit's Accessories listing or call Subaru of Niagara to talk about what you need and how we can solve it.
