Subaru Outback

Subaru introduced the 2013 Outback at the New York International Auto Show. This model is a roomier and more capable interpretation of the vehicle that launched the crossover trend 15 years ago. The car delivers enhanced performance, comfort and economy with the introduction of an all-new chassis and the new continuously variable transmission. The 2010 Subaru Outback has a smart size in comparison to other crossover vehicles. It has a mid-size interior volume in an easy-to-maneuver and off-road capable wagon body. The wheelbase has been increased by 2.8 inches and improves rear seat legroom by almost 4 inches. The dynamics of the chassis and rear cargo space are being improved by a new rear double wishbone suspension. The model caters with a wide variety of tastes and needs from customers. The 2010 line includes three 2.5i models powered by a revised 2.5-liter 4-cylinder Boxer capable of generating 170 horsepower. This sends the output to the wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission or through a CVT; either way both will improve acceleration, response and fuel economy. There are another new range-topping Outback 3.6R models powered by a new 3.6-liter 6-cylinder Boxer engine capable of generating 256 horsepower that uses a 5-speed electronic automatic transmission to send the power to the wheels. Actually, Subaru is the only company that features as standard equipment the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive on every vehicle in its product line. The 2010 model also has a greater road presence with a wider track and expressive wheel arches. As a new characteristic of the Outback, the D-pillars project a powerful SUV-like presence. The interior is not only more spacious, but takes another step up in refinement from an already-praised design in the previous model. It features high-strength front seat frames that provide enhanced protection against whiplash injury in a rear-end collision.
