What Are the Subaru STARLINK Subscription Packages?

The multimedia system is standard in every new Subaru vehicle but varies from model to model; we'll cover the details below. The safety and security package is either optional or unavailable on most base-trim Subaru models but will be standard via a three-year trial when you choose higher trim levels.1 Availability of Subaru STARLINK Security Plus features follow the same pattern but involves a six-month trial.1

A Subaru STARLINK subscription is required to access the safety and security package. However, a Subaru STARLINK Multimedia system will be built into every new Subaru vehicle and available to enjoy at all times.
