The iconic AWD Outback Wagon provides all the room and traction that many people need from an SUV without the bulk and poor fuel economy. Increased ground clearance and strengthened suspension improve off-pavement capability. The Outback excels at traversing deep snowdrifts and muddy roads. Engine options range from a 170-bhp 2.5L flat-4 (2.5i) or a 256-bhp flat-6 (3.6 R). Transmissions choices include a 6-speed manual, 5-speed automatic, or CVT. The Outback 2.5i equipped with the CVT turns in a respectable EPA rating of 22 city / 29 hwy.

What Changed:

The fourth generation Outback is grows in wheelbase and width. The increased size adds to the rear seat increasing rear seat room and cargo volume. The Outback continues to offer a choice of 4- or 6-cylinder boxer engines. The displacement of the 6-cylinder engine has increased to 3.6L. Outback 2.5i models equip a CVT transmission in place of the traditional automatic. The CVT equipped models turn in better fuel economy than the third generation models.
