Overview of the Subaru Outback

Learn about the Subaru Outback

Summary

The Subaru Outback 4x4 is a four-door station wagon that makes an excellent alternative to an SUV with its smooth handling and on-road comfort. The latest models offer a powerful four-cylinder base engine, with the options of a turbocharged or V6 engine available—although the latter is not the most fuel-efficient choice. For added versatility, choose from automatic, manual or continuous variable transmission. All-wheel drive comes as standard in every model, so its spacious interior and off-roading capabilities make the Subaru Outback well suited to families who like to get off the beaten path.

Safety

The Subaru Outback offers the following standard safety features on all models since 2009:

  • Daytime running lights so that other drivers can always spot you
  • Anti-lock braking system to prevent wheels from locking when you brake suddenly
  • Electronic stability control—if the car loses traction, it corrects over- or under-steering
  • Driver and passenger airbags

Optional features include fog lamps and a rearview camera for assistance with reversing or packing. The Subaru Outback also comes with a comprehensive selection of driver assist technologies with its patented EyeSight® system, available on select trims since 2013. This suite of features includes a blind spot monitoring system, lane departure alerts to keep you from veering off-course and an automatic emergency brake, which is activated when the vehicle spots a panic braking scenario ahead. 
 

Interior

The Subaru Outback offers a diverse range of interior comforts. All models from 2008 onward come with the following as standard:

  • Keyless entry 
  • Illuminated vanity mirrors for the driver and passenger
  • Power steering
  • Adjustable steering wheel
  • Power windows, door locks and mirrors
  • Rear floor mats
  • Auxiliary power outlet 

High-end trims and new generation models feature bonuses such as heated seats, front reading lamps and leather upholstery. 

Technology

All Subaru Outbacks offer AM/FM radio, a CD player, an mp3 player and auxiliary audio input as standard. Since 2009, models also include a six-speaker stereo system with base trims. Newer Subaru Outback models have further options such as Bluetooth capability, USB ports and an infotainment system. Subaru STARLINK™ is available with the choice of a 6.5-inch or 8-inch touchscreen display, as well as steering wheel integrated controls. It offers smartphone compatibility through Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto®, as well as a navigation system and music apps. 

Space

The Subaru Outback has a spacious interior with comfortable cabin seating for five people. Models from 2010 onwards have added back seat legroom as well as fold-down rear seats with a reclining feature for versatility of its best-in-class cargo space. 

Comfort

If you’ve opted for the Subaru Outback’s continuously variable transmission, you might find it’s slow to accelerate from starting—but other than that, you’re in for smooth handling and an easy ride, even on bumpy roads and rough terrain. This is partly due to the vehicle’s soft suspensions, though that also contributes to reduced cornering ability. The Subaru Outback comes with air-conditioning as standard, and newer models offer voice-activated dual-zone automatic climate control in upper trim levels.
