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. The increased ground clearance and strengthened suspension improve off-pavement capabilities, but the Outback really excels at traversing deep snowdrifts and muddy roads. The Outback range includes 2.5i models with a four-cylinder boxer engine and 3.6R models with a more powerful 6-cylinder boxer engine. A number of trim levels range from basic to well-equipped. Competitive vehicles include the Dodge Journey, Toyota Venza, and Honda Crosstour. None of these vehicles can match the legroom, cargo volume, fuel-economy and affordable all-wheel-drive capabilities of the Outback.

What Changed:

New for 2015, the Outback is slightly longer and wider than the outgoing model. Engine options remain the same with a choice between either a 2.5l flat four or a 3.6l flat six.
