With the drivability and agile handling of a passenger car combined with the versatility of an SUV, the Outback is up for any adventure.
A sporty on-road presence, sleek exterior and rounded body mouldings mark the Outback as better, braver and bolder. Design dynamics are evident in the distinctive alloy wheels, sunroof1, hawk-eye headlights, large front fog lights and classic Subaru hexagonal grille, which all hint at its brooding energy. Outback’s powerful and distinctive appeal is further highlighted by a rear spoiler and roof rails with integrated crossbars, designed for active families with all the gear. Whether cruising down the motorway or making a dash for the weekender, Outback’s sculpted new generation body delivers improved aerodynamic performance, improved fuel efficiency and an impressive 213mm of ground clearance.

Outback's appeal lies in its unexpected twists and turns. A sophisticated off-roader with all the comfort and style of a city SUV.
The high-end interior of the Outback 2.5i Premium, 3.6R and 2.0D Premium variants boast all round visibility, stylish stitching on the seat cushions and leather seats1 plus eight-way electrically adjustable front seats2. Ergonomic cabin seating has been refined and expanded with copious shoulder, elbow, waist, head and rear legroom, plus excellent lumbar support for the front passengers.

Family shopping trips and school drop offs are effortless with Outback’s powered cargo door2 which can be operated from the driver’s seat switch, the button on the door or the keyless remote.

A touch of genius.
Innovative technologies place even more control at the driver's fingertips.
The Outback 2.5i has a large centre display with a touch LCD screen featuring audio and smart phone information using easy-to-understand graphics. Access to Bluetooth®1 is standard including a premium audio system with a range of simple touch and voice commands. In addition to this the Outback 2.5i Premium and Outback 2.0D Premium models offer a new level of on-board infotainment with the LCD touch screen displaying satellite navigation, vehicle information and Pandora® compatibility, while the Outback 3.6R comes alive with a harman kardon® 12-speaker sound system including subwoofer and custom acoustics.
A coloured Multi Information Display screen is strategically placed in the centre of the dual gauge instrument cluster displaying a range of colour-coded functions. The leather wrapped, three-spoke steering wheel evokes a sense of true control and lets the driver directly interact with the vehicle’s satellite navigation2, audio and Bluetooth®1 as well as SI-Drive and adaptive cruise control on petrol variants.
Outback features the latest in proactive safety with EyeSight® available on all CVT models. Selected variants see the addition of blind spot monitors, lane change assist and rear cross traffic alert which delivers an audio warning when reversing to warn of cross traffic. Auto dimming subdues the rear view mirror brightness automatically when headlights fill the view and conversely, the driver’s own high beam lights turn off automatically for oncoming traffic. Talk about super vision.

Safety without compromise.
The 2016 Outback incorporates advanced safety technologies.
Safety starts with a chassis and a body frame reinforced to increase frontal, side and rear crash safety. Designated crumple zones direct impact energy away from the reinforced passenger safety cell, while seven airbags - including dual front, side, curtain and driver’s knee airbags help protect occupants. Front seats have Emergency Locking Retractors (ELR) and pre-tensioners, and rear seats have Automatic Emergency Locking Retractors (A/ELR). The result is a maximum five-star ANCAP1 crashworthiness rating.
Safety designed to help prevent loss of control is delivered via improved Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) which constantly monitors vehicle movement, engaging a range of technologies when required. With precision timing the VDC controls the Antilock Braking System (ABS), Traction Control System (TCS), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), TCS Limited Slip Device, Brake Override System (BOS), Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) and Hydraulic Brake Assist (HBA).
Intelligent sensors activate Outback’s active torque vectoring, to automatically control braking and torque for improved cornering and more precise steering response. While an ultra wide-angle reversing camera provides a superior rear field of vision. Outback’s Hill Descent Control is linked to X-Mode (CVT variants) to manage speed, braking and tyre slip.
EyeSight® driver assist system monitors the road ahead using three-dimensional images captured by cameras mounted at the top of the windscreen2. EyeSight® provides audible and visual warnings to prompt the driver to take action in potentially dangerous situations and will also apply automatic braking intervention, when necessary, to help avoid or reduce the severity of a detected frontal collision.

They say that to be forewarned, is to be forearmed. That’s the philosophy behind the EyeSight® driver assist system offering a superior level of reassurance, with both field-of-vision and distance improved around 40 per cent1.
EyeSight® is a second pair of eyes that monitor the road ahead and recognise potentially dangerous driving situations. Using three-dimensional images captured by cameras mounted at the top of the windscreen, EyeSight® provides audible and visual warnings to prompt the driver to take action. EyeSight® will also apply automatic braking intervention, when necessary, to help avoid or reduce the severity of a detected frontal collision. New features include enhanced stereo camera performance and images at all speeds and better performance in poor weather conditions1.
