SUBARU OUTBACK

Nothing to hold you back

EMBRACE EVERY MOMENT

The flagship of the Subaru range and all new for 2015, the Outback wears its colours as the world’s first crossover with pride. Outback pioneered a whole new genre back in 1995 as the first car to fuse the practicality of passenger estate with the go anywhere nature of an SUV.

Built for the long haul but also built for the road less travelled, new Outback really is a car for all seasons. 

Get involved

All Outback models are covered by a 5 year/ 100,000 mile (whichever is sooner) Limited Warranty. Terms apply.

Outstanding Safety

New Outback sets the standard for world-class safety. Among a raft of new technology, Subaru’s EyeSight driver assist system acts as a second pair of eyes for the driver to help avoid collisions. Enjoy the ambience of new Outback’s sumptuous cabin which not only boasts every conceivable convenience but reaches new levels of refinement.

But the Outback hasn’t forgotten its roots and Subaru Symmetrical All-wheel drive and a choice of petrol or diesel Boxer Engines, including with 7-speed Lineartronic, ensures the Outback has retained its sense of adventure.
