No matter where you roam, Subaru Outback is ready. An SUV with legendary capability and refined performance.
Engineered to power all over Australia, Subaru Outback is full of possibilities.
All wheels, all of the time
The sign of a true performer, is good balance. And when it comes to driving a Subaru, superior balance equals superior vehicle control. That’s why Subaru has built its reputation on its Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system and a symmetrical drivetrain that deliver an innate sense of balance from the ground up.
Symmetrical AWD delivers engine power to all four wheels simultaneously. Having power distributed across all four wheels, rather than two on conventional vehicles, gives you twice the traction capacity. So under acceleration there’s more grip for cornering and more capacity to keep on track through the corners.
Ultimately, having the driving force spread across all four wheels means greater control and confidence under all conditions. The traction and control delivered by Symmetrical AWD is further enhanced by the Outback’s suspension.
The wide track rigid front suspension produces more responsive steering and cornering, while the double wishbone rear suspension ensures a smooth, controlled ride with outstanding handling, comfort and quietness.
For you, the driver, it all adds up to an agile and responsive vehicle with optimum balance, control and confidence in a variety of driving conditions.

Think outside the boxer
Consistent across the Outback range is the famous Subaru Boxer engine that has been designed to sit lower and flatter in the engine bay than traditional engines. Due to this unique design, it delivers low levels of noise and vibration to the cabin, while the lowered centre of gravity improves stability, cornering and traction with the road.
Coupled with the Outback’s symmetrical drivetrain, this configuration delivers superior handling confidence, better balance, smoothness and ultimately, outstanding driver enjoyment. The intelligent drive systems incorporated into the Outback include an Electronic Throttle Control system (ETC) which seamlessly translates commands from the driver’s right foot to automatically select the optimum throttle position for an effortless performance.
The Outback's engine has also been finely tuned to deliver optimum fuel economy, power and torque, via Subaru’s Dual Active Valve Control System
