The new-generation Subaru Outback lost its six-cylinder engine, which was replaced by a 2.4-liter “turbo four”, giving out 264 liters. with. and 375 Nm of torque. In addition, a 2.5-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine entered the engine range, issuing 185 forces and 240 newton meters. Both engines are paired with a variator with eight virtual steps and all-wheel drive system.

Outback sixth generation has not changed much in appearance. The wagon is equipped with LED optics, additional body protection and new wheels. Ground clearance news was 203 millimeters. The luggage compartment – 2.1 thousand liters.

The new Subaru Outback is equipped with a proprietary set of electronic “assistants” EyeSight, which includes an active vehicle retention system in the occupied lane, a function to monitor driver fatigue, as well as a monitoring system for “dead” zones. The wagon will be offered with an infotainment system controlled through a 11.6-inch vertical display located in the center of the front panel.

The start of global sales of the new station wagon is expected this fall, the prices for the model will be announced later.
