OUR NEW BOX OF TRICKS
OUTBACK MAKES ITS INTENTIONS CLEAR WITH CLASS-LEADING DRIVABILITY AND AN ADVANCED BOXER ENGINE THAT IS PURE POWER.
Outback owes its credentials to a choice of horizontally-opposed Boxer engines, plus a long list of technical breakthroughs, improved fuel economy and environmentally sensitive features such as Automatic Start Stop1. Legendary Boxer Engine Subaru’s unsurpassed horizontally-opposed Boxer engine is designed to sit lower and flatter in the engine bay than traditional engines. Due to this unique configuration the engine delivers less noise and vibration to the cabin, while the lowered centre of gravity improves stability, cornering and traction with the road. Coupled with the Boxer engine is Subaru’s iconic Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive which simultaneously drives power to all four wheels for superior grip and traction. Also, due to its low height, the engine is driven downwards and under the floor of the cabin in the event of a severe frontal collision to help reduce the risk of injury to occupants.
> Petrol Engine: The Outback’s petrol range includes a 2.5-litre four cylinder engine, which produces 129kW of power at 5800rpm and 235Nm of torque at 4000rpm and impressive fuel efficiency at 7.3-litre/100km2. While the 3.6-litre six cylinder engine has been mated with the new generation Lineartronic™ Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) for the first time in a Subaru. This combination produces 191kW of power at 6000rpm and 350Nm of torque at 4400rpm, for a smooth power delivery and improved fuel efficiency of 9.9-litre/100km2.
> Turbocharged Diesel Engine: The Outback 2.0 Diesel boasts precise control, turbocharged responsiveness, improved torque characteristics and impressive pulling power. Reduced overall emissions meet strict Euro 6 standards and outstanding fuel efficiency capable of traveling over 1000km on a single tank3.
The 2.0-litre four cylinder turbocharged diesel produces 110kW of power at 3600rpm and 350Nm of torque at 1600rpm – 2800rpm. The six speed manual offers a sporty driving experience, while recording an improved fuel economy of 5.7-litre/100km2.
The 2.0-litre turbocharged Lineartronic™ CVT Outback is superbly coupled with the Boxer diesel engine offering step-less or step shifting, depending on the throttle input. The combination offers smooth acceleration, optimal gear ratios and outstanding fuel economy of 6.3-litre/100km2. Subaru Intelligent Drive Driver enjoyment is further enhanced by Subaru Intelligent Drive4 (SI-DRIVE) which offers a selection of driving modes. Choose from Intelligent (I) mode for everyday driving or Sport (S) mode for enhanced acceleration and all-round sporty performance. The Outback 3.6R sees the addition of Sport Sharp (S#) mode for a truly thrilling drive.
1. Available with 2.5-litre engines only. 2. Results based on testing conducted in accordance with ADR81/02. 3. Based on a highway cycle of 5.5-litre/100km and fuel capacity of 60L in accordance with ADR81/02. 4. Only with petrol variants.
ALL WHEELS, ALL OF THE TIME
SUPERIOR VEHICLE CONTROL FROM THE GROUND UP.
The sign of a true performer is good balance. And when it comes to driving a Subaru, superior balance equals superior vehicle control. That’s why Subaru has built its reputation on its Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (SAWD) system and a symmetrical drivetrain that delivers an innate sense of balance from the ground up.
SAWD delivers engine power to all four wheels simultaneously. Having power distributed across all four wheels, rather than two on conventional vehicles, gives you twice the grip capacity. So under acceleration there’s more grip for cornering and more capacity to keep on track through the corners. Ultimately, having the driving force spread across all four wheels means greater control and confidence.
Driver enjoyment is delivered with Subaru Intelligent Drive (SI-DRIVE)1 which regulates key engine functions to suit your driving style. Working in unison with the Boxer engine, the SI-DRIVE manages and fine-tunes the engine’s power characteristics to offer optimum drivability and a smooth, responsive power delivery across the engine’s operating range.

SAFETY WITHOUT COMPROMISE
THE 2015 OUTBACK INCORPORATES ADVANCED SAFETY TECHNOLOGIES. Safety starts with an improved chassis and a body frame reinforced to increase frontal, side and rear crash safety. Designated crumple zones direct impact energy away from the reinforced passenger safety cell, while seven airbags - including dual front, side, curtain and driver’s knee airbags help protect occupants. Front seats have Emergency Locking Retractors (ELR) and pre-tensioners, and rear seats have Automatic Emergency Locking Retractors (A/ELR). The result is a maximum five-star ANCAP1 crashworthiness rating.
Safety designed to help prevent loss of control is delivered via improved Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) which constantly monitors vehicle movement, engaging a range of technologies when required. With precision timing the VDC controls the Antilock Braking System (ABS), Traction Control System (TCS), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), TCS Limited Slip Device, Brake Override System (BOS), Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) and Hydraulic Brake Assist (HBA).
Intelligent sensors activate Outback’s active torque vectoring, to automatically control braking and torque for improved cornering and more precise steering response. While a new, ultra wideangle reversing camera provides an improved rear field of vision. Outback’s Hill Descent Control is linked to X-Mode (CVT variants) to manage speed, braking and tyre slip.
EyeSight® driver assist system monitors the road ahead using three-dimensional images captured by cameras mounted at the top of the windscreen2. EyeSight® provides audible and visual warnings to prompt the driver to take action in potentially dangerous situations and will also apply automatic braking intervention, when necessary, to help avoid or reduce the severity of a detected frontal collision.

EYESIGHT® DRIVER ASSIST SYSTEM AVAILABLE ON ALL OUTBACK PETROL VARIANTS.
They say that to be forewarned, is to be forearmed. That’s the philosophy behind the EyeSight® driver assist system offering a superior level of reassurance, with both field-of-vision and distance improved around 40 per cent1.
EyeSight® is a second pair of eyes that monitor the road ahead and recognise potentially dangerous driving situations. Using three-dimensional images captured by cameras mounted at the top of the windscreen, EyeSight® provides audible and visual warnings to prompt the driver to take action. EyeSight® will also apply automatic braking intervention, when necessary, to help avoid or reduce the severity of a detected frontal collision.
New features include enhanced stereo camera performance and images at all speeds and better performance in poor weather conditions1.
1. Improvements based on comparison with previous generation EyeSight® system.
Pre-Collision Braking provides automatic braking to help avoid or reduce the severity of detected frontal accident impacts. Should the driver be distracted, or just not register the risk of a collision, braking will be automatically applied when a potential frontal collision is recognised by EyeSight®.
Pre-Collision Brake Assist recognises a potential frontal impact, alerts the driver and assists the driver by applying full braking force in a detected emergency-braking situation.
Pre-Collision Throttle Management reduces available acceleration when the system detects objects in front of the vehicle, which it is likely to impact. Engine output is restricted to reduce the possible impact force and frontal impact damage, and to help minimise injury should the driver mistakenly accelerate.
Adaptive Cruise Control maintains the speed set by the driver, but also regulates the vehicle’s speed in order to maintain a set distance from the car in front. The driver can select from different distances and the EyeSight® system will automatically regulate the vehicle’s speed in line with the traffic flow.
Lane Sway and Departure Warning monitors the vehicle’s position within the road lane markings and sounds a warning when it recognises the potential for the vehicle to unintentionally move out of its lane, or when swaying within the lane is recognised.
Colour Recognition EyeSight® can now see and interpret red brake lights to monitor a vehicle ahead and trigger a driver alert if required.
