Subaru is expanding the availability of SiriusXM satellite radio across its entire model lineup. The automaker recently announced its full 2012 lineup will offer the popular feature, which will become standard on the Legacy and Outback and optional on other models for the new model year.

Car shoppers interested in the Legacy and Outback benefit most from Subaru's increased satellite radio availability. Until the 2012 model year, buyers looking for the feature had to step up to the upscale 2.5i Limited model, which starts at more than $26,000 for the sedan-only Legacy and tops $29,000 in Outback guise. Now, the feature is included on even the cheapest versions of the Legacy and Outback, which start around $6,000 below the upscale Limited trims.

But shoppers who want satellite radio in their Subaru Forester or Impreza will also see improved availability for the new model year. According to Subaru, all Forester and Impreza models equipped with its new factory navigation system will include satellite radio standard. That allows buyers to take advantage of SiriusXM's standard NavTraffic feature, which teams up with in-car navigation systems to re-route drivers around traffic incidents. Ultimately, that means drivers can avoid construction, accidents and road closures, allowing them to arrive at their destinations faster.

"Subaru is very pleased to offer our customers entertainment and data services from SiriusXM," said Thomas J. Doll, Subaru of America's chief operating officer. "SiriusXM satellite radio and NavTraffic bring value to our vehicles…. The feature has proven to be quite popular on our fast-selling 2011 Legacy and Outback models, so it made sense to expand availability to more Subaru customers."

All Subaru customers purchasing new satellite radio-equipped vehicles receive a four-month free trial subscription to the service, giving buyers more than 130 channels of commercial-free music, sports, news, talk and comedy. When the trial subscription ends, users pay between $12.95 and $16.99 per month if they choose to sign up for the service.
