Adventures often take you to remote places. In the Outback, you’ll come prepared. With 8.7 inches of ground clearance, and the venerable Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system, little can block you from getting there. Adversity? No problem! Simply activate X-MODE® with Hill Descent Control for even more control and confidence. And with up to 33 miles per gallon, the responsive SUBARU BOXER® engine has the efficiency to help you go farther, and the reliability to go the distance.
Both the Outback 2.5i and 3.6R come equipped with the Lineartronic® CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission), which enhances overall efficiency versus conventional automatic transmissions by keeping the engine in the optimal power range for improved performance and better fuel economy. Drivers can also enjoy enhanced control when they need it, thanks to its manual mode offering six selectable speeds via paddle shifters.
Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) with Active Torque Vectoring helps provide sharper, more stable handling. It automatically senses steering and braking inputs to help keep the vehicle on the driver's intended path.
Using radar sensors, the Blind-Spot Detection system warns you with a visual indicator in each side mirror if it senses a vehicle in your blind spots. Rear Cross-Traffic Alert can help warn you of traffic approaching from the side as you are backing up, utilizing an audible warning and flashing visual indicator in your side mirrors and rear-vision camera display.
The Outback features aluminum-alloy wheels, 8.7 inches of ground clearance, and standard X-Mode™ to help you safely cover almost any road your heart sets out on.
