8.7 Inches of Ground Clearance and X-MODE®

Conquer almost any terrain with 8.7 inches of ground clearance and standard X-MODE, which optimizes the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system for maximum traction on slippery surfaces. X-MODE also incorporates Hill Descent Control for stability and confidence when descending more difficult grades.

Flexible Cargo-Carrying Versatility

Standard roof rails with integrated crossbars provide additional cargo-carrying capability and can fold away when not in use. You get the versatility of hauling kayaks, bikes, skis, and cargo carriers on your adventures without added wind noise or reduced fuel efficiency on your daily commute.


In addition to an efficient 175-hp SUBARU BOXER engine with up to 32 MPG, the Outback also features an available 256-hp 6-cylinder engine for more performance and hauling power. Both engines boast a horizontal layout offering natural balance and a low center of gravity.

Packed with Technology

No matter what the journey holds, the Outback is equipped to help you pack accordingly.

60/40 Split-Folding Rear Seatback

The Outback comes standard with 60/40 split-folding rear seatbacks - featuring available cargo area release levers - that provide flexible cargo space for all your adventures.

Power Rear Gate

Open and close the available power rear gate with the push of a button on your key fob, or by controls on the dashboard or the gate itself. The opening height can also be adjusted when clearance is limited.

Power Seats with Memory

A 10-way adjustable power driver's seat with 2-position memory function and 4-way power front passenger seat help make every ride comfortable for drivers and passengers alike.

Safe and Secure

EyeSight has been found to reduce rear-end crashes with injuries by up to 85%.[1]

Blind-Spot Detection and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert

Using radar sensors, the available Blind-Spot Detection[2] system warns you with a visual indicator in each side mirror if it senses a vehicle in your blind spots. Available Rear Cross-Traffic Alert helps warn you of traffic approaching from the side as you are backing up, utilizing an audible warning and flashing visual indicator in your side mirrors and Rear-Vision Camera display.

Rear-Vision Camera and Reverse Automatic Braking

A standard Rear-Vision Camera enhances rear visibility when backing up. Its display includes guidelines to help you see the vehicle's path and judge distance to other objects. And with available Reverse Automatic Braking, your vehicle can even stop itself to avoid objects behind while in reverse.[3]

Active Torque Vectoring

Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) with Active Torque Vectoring helps provide sharper, more stable handling. It automatically senses steering and braking inputs to help keep the vehicle on the driver's intended path.

  2. Blind-Spot Detection, Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert are systems designed to assist the driver by monitoring the rear and side areas of the vehicle during a lane change or reversing and are not a substitute for safe and attentive driving.
  3. Reverse Automatic Braking is a system designed to assist the driver by detecting objects to help avoid a possible collision when the vehicle is moving in a reverse direction. It is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving. System effectiveness depends on many factors such as vehicle maintenance, weather and road conditions. Always exercise caution and use vehicle mirrors and Rear-Vision Camera when backing up. See Owner's Manual for complete details on system operation and limitations.
