Subaru Outback range that will be available for sale in Australia from March 2021 has a heavily revised 2.5 litre Boxer engine with nearly seven per cent more power (138 kW) and four per cent more torque (245 Nm). The result is braked towing capacity of 2,000 kilograms.
Inside there’s the largest Outback cabin to date with key interior dimensions. There’s a larger, wider-opening cargo area.
A high definition 11.6-inch head unit vertical infotainment system that’s operated in a similar manner to a smartphone or tablet.
A clever feature is a passenger seat cushion airbag that’s designed to push up the front section of the seat during a crash. This helps to prevent forward movement of the occupant’s waist and also stops the body from sinking below the seatbelt.
