The fifth generation Subaru Outback, gracing showrooms since mid-March, continues where its predecessor left off: a sports utility vehicle that requires no sacrifice in its aspirations to be a practical lifestyle accessory. Previous generations have achieved this by remaining faithful to an engineering recipe which combines horizontally-opposed Boxer® engines with Symmetrical All Wheel Drive™, and a high-riding and roomy wagon body style that is ideal for going almost anywhere in pursuit of almost anything.

The Outback looks more purposeful thanks to the bolder grille, a more steeply angled windscreen, a lower rear roofline and a slight increase in overall width. Subaru’s trademark ‘Hawkeye’ headlamps with light-emitting diode low-beam assistance flank the hexagonal grille, and at the rear, wraparound light clusters also making use of LED lighting technology.

The flagship of the Outback range is powered by the EZ36 3 630cc six-cylinder boxer engine, which features four valves per cylinder, double overhead camshafts per bank, and variable ignition timing on both inlet and exhaust camshafts. Headline numbers are 191kW and 350Nm.
This latest generation of an engine which has become synonymous with refinement and effortless punch features new connecting rods, revised electronic controls, and a new exhaust system.

With the base of the windscreen now 50 mm further forward than before, the cabin of the Outback has a palpable roominess – yet still feels secure and embracing. The sense of space is complemented by an upmarket ambience, created with the generous use of high quality materials, in tandem with Subaru’s established reputation for superb build quality. A 6.2-inch touch screen takes pride of place and its graphical user interface (GUI) is the starting point for controlling almost all the non-driving functions of the car, as well as providing information such as the fuel efficiency history and X-Mode settings. It also displays the view from the reversing camera. The thin film transistor (TFT) screen mimics the swipe/flick/double-tap functionality that consumers have become so familiar with from smartphones and tablets and is intuitive and user-friendly.
