In United States Subaru will be offering diesel before hybrid

Subaru is busy creating their new hybrid-engine with help from Toyota, but the first arriving will be the diesel engines. Europe will get it next year and then later on the United States market.

`There are many opinions. But currently, the voices calling for diesels are stronger than the voices for hybrids` the president of Subaru parent Fuji Heavy Industries – Ikuo Mori told Automotive News Europe.

The first models getting the engine will be the Outback and Legacy. The diesel variants of the large-segment vehicles will debut next year at the Geneva auto show, said a Subaru spokeswomen.
