The Subaru Outback arguably set the bar for crossover vehicles when it debuted in 1996. Sporting the look and ride quality of a high-end tourer, the Outback, as its name suggests, is also a thoroughly competent all-weather terrain vehicle. And with Subaru's reputation for solid, nuts-and-bolts build quality, the Outback is one of the most well-respected estates ever created. 2015 sees a number of additions and subtle enhancements which will excite fans of this remarkable vehicle.
The Outback is equipped with a raft of technological features worthy of a crossover estate in the 21st century. Speed-sensitive power steering means that the driver doesn't have to work as hard when cornering at low speeds, while entertainment and communication are provided by Bluetooth® and MP3 connectivity. A 7- inch center touchscreen gives ability for the driver to control everything from their finger tips. The touch screen also displays the super wide view rear camera, allowing extra visibility.
Subaru's EyeSight technology (standard on Lineartronic models) improves safety on the roads by monitoring traffic on the roads ahead and reacts to situations quicker than the driver.
Adaptive cruise control is also a feature of Eyesight, when the cruise control detects a vehicle in front this adapts the vehicles speed and maintains a safe distance by monitoring the distance in speed. Specifically designed for motor way journeys the technology can detect break lights, which is a convenience in stop-start motorway traffic. For the longer journeys that may cause fatigue and drifting into other lanes Lane Sway alerts the driver with a flashing indicator and buzzer.
When it comes to safety you don't need to worry when driving the Subaru Outback - it has won the highest possible safety due to its highly rated Eye Sight Collison avoidance technology. In all of the car collision safety tests this incredible SUV achieved the highest score possible, as well as scoring 'superior' in crash prevention. The Eye Sight technology is fitted as standard and gives you extra protection by acting as a secondary pair of eyes for drivers, using two cameras to identify any vehicles or other potential hazards such as pedestrians or cyclists and maximisng safety accordingly.
The Outback's classic exterior design is instantly appealing to fans of both the manufacturer and aesthetic minimalism: elegant, unfussy lines and a trademark grille leave onlookers in no doubt as to the car's intentions. The larger sunroof welcomes more light into drives. Extra touches like 18-inch alloy wheels and enlarged fog lights help the Outback to stand out from the crowd.
The interior sets the industry standard for ingenious practicality, with clever placement of storage compartments helping to create a spacious cabin. The boot, similarly, offers 1,848 litres of space, ensuring that you'll never be short of storage capacity. The inside of the vehicle is more spacious then the previous model, giving front and rear passengers more room, comfort is added with reclining rear seats.
The Outback is equipped with Subaru's Boxer engine, delivering much greater responsiveness and power than other engines in its class. Going from 0-60mph in under ten seconds and a top speed of 130 mph. The Lineartronic transmission system allows for smooth, quiet gear changes, while efficiency is better than ever, at 46.3 mpg combined.
