Exterior and Interior

Subaru Outback Interior

The Outback features a large refined interior, featuring leather seats, eight-way power adjustable seats for the front driver and passengers, and high-quality soft-touch materials. Choose from either black or beige interior trims.


The available AM/FM/CD/MP3/WMA infotainment system features an 8″ high-resolution multi-gesture capacitive touchscreen. This system incorporates Bluetooth mobile phone connectivity and streaming audio, dual USB ports/iPod control, auxiliary audio input and steering wheel integrated controls.

Leather Seated Interior

Automatic Boot Close

The power rear gate will take some of the work out of loading. Use the switch on the instrument panel, the gate or the key fob, and it opens or closes automatically.


The standard Harmon Kardon® audio system takes centre stage with a powerful 11 speaker set-up, subwoofer and amplifier.

Infotainment Compatibility

Use today’s most popular apps with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. Voice recognition capabilities allow hands-free use, keeping everybody safe while reducing distractions when you’re on the road.

Cross Bars

Built-in cross bars mean no need for separate cross bars. Simply mount a roof box to gain additional space for your adventures.

LED Lights

LED Steering Responsive Headlights with High Beam Assist actively track in the direction of a turn to enhance visibility. If you’re approaching oncoming traffic at night, auto high beams will sense the road ahead and automatically switch to low beam.




When activated, X-Mode with Hill Descent Control takes command of the engine, transmission, Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (SAWD), brakes and other components to provide the best traction and grip in difficult conditions. Hill Descent Control moderates speed and braking for you when going downhill, allowing you to concentrate on steering.


While most engines stand vertically, our Subaru Boxer engine lays flat – delivering handling that no other engine can. Sitting horizontally in the engine bay, it moves like a boxer’s fists with a punch and counterpunch action. With perfect balance and a much lower centre of gravity, it creates less noise and vibration too.

All-Wheel Drive

Permanent Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (SAWD) delivers power to all four wheels at all times, ensuring enhanced control of the Outback on or off-road – even in poor conditions. The entire drive system, from the Boxer engine to the rear differential, is mounted in a straight, symmetrical line, delivering the Outback’s stability and balance.

Dynamics Control System

The Vehicle Dynamics Control System monitors and analyses if the vehicle is following the driver’s intended course via an array of sensors. If a tyre slips or a high-speed turn causes the vehicle to veer off its intended path, the AWD torque distribution, engine output and brakes at each wheel are adjusted to assist in keeping the vehicle on course.



EyeSight Adaptive Cruise Control

EyeSight Adaptive Cruise Control lets the system automatically adjust your speed to keep a set distance from the vehicle ahead. By constantly monitoring distance and speed, it adjusts the engine, transmission and brakes to maintain speed in line with the traffic flow.

Rear Vehicle Detection

Subaru Rear Vehicle Detection features Blind Spot Monitoring, Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. It monitors rear blind spots for danger, makes lane changes safer and can also warn you of a potential collision. For example, when your reverse into a street with passing traffic.

Lane Sway & Departure Warning

EyeSight Lane Sway & Departure Warning both activate a chime sound when your vehicle begins to drift or is too close to another lane.


Equipped standard with front, side and reverse cameras to ensure you have optimal visibility when parking and manoeuvring around pavements, pedestrians and other vehicles.

EyeSight Pre-Collision Braking

If EyeSight senses an impending collision, a buzzer and a light on the dashboard warn you. If you don’t take evasive action, the system can automatically apply the brakes and reduce engine power – either preventing the collision entirely, or reducing the severity, depending on your speed. If you apply the brakes, but not hard enough, EyeSight applies more braking force to stop the vehicle.

Impact Absorption

In the event of a head-on collision, the Subaru Boxer engine and transmission are designed to absorb impact, and then break away from the vehicle structure and drop below the passenger cabin, for added protection. A total of seven airbags standard gives you peace of mind.

EyeSight Pre-Collision Throttle Management

Should EyeSight detect an obstacle in front of you while you are parked, and you put the vehicle in drive instead of reverse, you’ll hear several short beeps, see a flashing indicator and the engine will reduce power to help you avoid a collision.`

Impact Design

This proprietary advanced frame design strengthens the passenger compartment by linking the roof to the side pillars and the floor. As a result, impact energy coming from all directions is dissipated and then diverted away from the passenger cabin.
