Subaru Outback
Last modified: 04/22/14
The redesigned 2015 Outback is getting a major styling update, additional safety and convenience features, and improved fuel economy.

The Outback’s engines will be carried over: a 2.5-liter four-cylinder Boxer engine with 175 hp and a 3.6-liter six-cylinder Boxer engine with 256 hp.

The wheelbase has been increased to 108.1 inches, overall length grows to 189.6 inches, and the width has been expanded to 72.4 inches. Interior cabin room is improved to 108.1 cubic feet.

Inside, Subaru has added more premium soft-touch materials and thicker cushioning on the armrests and center console. The instrument panel has been redesigned and features a standard 3.5-inch display.

Subaru has beefed up the Outback’s safety features with a standard rearview camera and a rollover sensor that sets off the side curtain airbags. Higher trim levels will get a rear vehicle-detection system, blind-spot detection, lane-change assist, a rear cross-traffic alert, Subaru's EyeSight driver-assist program and steering-responsive fog lights.

It will go on sale this summer.
