Fun to drive

After a week cruising down city motorways, the Outback is restless for adventure. So, take it out of the city and take it off the beaten track. This is where some SUVs get nervous. This is where the Outback gets real.

With Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and X-Mode, coupled with Subaru's famous Boxer engine and 2,000kg braked towing capacity*, Outback is ready to take you there.

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.

2,000kg braked towing capacity

The braked towing capacity¹ has increased to 2,000kg – that’s 500kg more than the equivalent engine in the previous generation Outback, and 200kg more than the larger 3.6-litre engine from the previous generation.

 

1. Towing capacity is subject to regulatory requirements, tow bar and vehicle design and towing equipment limitations. Requires fitment of optional tow bar accessory. Ask your Retailer for details of Genuine Subaru tow bar capacity and availability details. Always refer to your Owner’s Manual for towing instructions.
