Safety

All-round Visibility in the Outback

The Subaru Outback is designed to minimise blind spots, reduce line of sight obstructions and provide excellent visibility in all directions. Body pillar widths are minimised wherever possible, without compromising safety, to increase windscreen area and visibility. The front is designed to give you a better awareness of the Outback’s dimensions, while reversing visibility is given special attention for peace of mind in driveway situations and around busy school zones.

Second pair of eyes

Second pair of eyes

Subaru’s renowned technologies include the unrivalled ‘Driver Assist system’ called EyeSight®. EyeSight® is your second pair of eyes that monitors the road ahead and recognises potentially dangerous driving situations. Using three-dimensional images captured by stereo cameras mounted behind the front windscreen, EyeSight® provides audible and visual warnings to prompt the driver to take action. Depending on general visibility, it has a length of vision up to 130 metres. Apart from these built-in driver alert functions, EyeSight® will also apply automatic braking intervention, when necessary, to help avoid or reduce the severity of a detected frontal collision.

EyeSight®

EyeSight®

Through more than 30 years of development and many real-world tests and evaluation, EyeSight® has been developed to respond to many individual market’s traffic conditions. With multiple incredible features, EyeSight® works with Subaru’s acclaimed collision avoidance and collision protection technologies, working together to provide improved protection for you and your family.

Subaru’s Driver Monitoring System

Subaru’s Driver Monitoring System

Watching out for you, this innovative new system monitors the driver’s face for signs of fatigue or distraction and provides an audible and visual warning if it detects signs of fatigue or that the driver is not focused on the road ahead. The system is also clever enough to recognise the face of up to five registered drivers and will sync each driver's preferred settings including air-conditioning and MID display settings. Subaru Outback AWD Touring can also sync each driver's and door mirror position. Now that's clever!

Subaru’s Vision Assist

Subaru’s Vision Assist

Subaru’s Vision Assist is advanced technology that gives you greater awareness of the world around you.

Reverse Automatic Braking (RAB) senses and alerts you when it detects an obstacle behind you that you’re at risk of hitting. Plus it can even step in to apply the brakes in the event that you don’t.

Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) features sensors that let you know when there’s something in a blind spot to help make lane changes safer.

Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) can warn you that another car is approaching when reversing out of a car space. Cutting-edge technology to help keep your family safe.

Safety without compromise

Safety without compromise

Safety starts with an improved chassis and a body frame reinforced to increase frontal, side and rear crash safety. Designated crumple zones are designed to direct impact energy away from the reinforced passenger safety cell, while SRS1 airbags – including dual front, dual front side, dual curtain, driver’s knee and front passenger seat cushion are designed to protect occupants. The Boxer engine sits low in the engine bay, and is designed to help protect occupants by sliding below the cabin – not into it - in the event of a severe frontal collision.

1. SRS: Supplemental Restraint System. Effective when used in conjunction with seatbelts.

Performance

Fun to drive

After a week cruising down city motorways, the Outback is restless for adventure. So, take it out of the city and take it off the beaten track. This is where some SUVs get nervous. This is where the Outback gets real.

With Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and X-Mode, coupled with Subaru's famous Boxer engine and 2,000kg braked towing capacity*, Outback is ready to take you there.

*Towing capacity is subject to regulatory requirements, tow bar and vehicle design and towing equipment limitations. Requires fitment of optional tow bar accessory. Ask your Retailer for details of Genuine Subaru tow bar capacity and availability details. Always refer to your Owner’s Manual for towing instructions.

Fun to drive
All wheels, all of the time

All wheels, all of the time

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 (AWD) system and a symmetrical drivetrain that deliver an innate sense of balance from the ground up. Symmetrical AWD 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 traction 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 under all conditions. The traction and control delivered by Symmetrical AWD is further enhanced by the Outback’s suspension. The wide track rigid front suspension produces more responsive steering and cornering, while the double wishbone rear suspension ensures a smooth, controlled ride with outstanding handling, comfort and quietness. For you, the driver, it all adds up to an agile and responsive vehicle with optimum balance, control and confidence in a variety of driving conditions.

Think outside the Boxer

Think outside the Boxer

Consistent across the Outback range is the famous Subaru Boxer engine that has been designed to sit lower and flatter in the engine bay than traditional engines. Due to this unique design, it delivers low levels of noise and vibration to the cabin, while the lowered centre of gravity improves stability, cornering and traction with the road. Coupled with the Outback’s symmetrical drivetrain, this configuration delivers superior handling confidence, better balance, smoothness and ultimately, outstanding driver enjoyment. The intelligent drive systems incorporated into the Outback include an Electronic Throttle Control system (ETC) which seamlessly translates commands from the driver’s right foot to automatically select the optimum throttle position for an effortless performance.

2,000kg braked towing capacity

2,000kg braked towing capacity

The braked towing capacity1 has increased to 2,000kg – that’s 500kg more than the equivalent engine in the previous generation Outback, and 200kg more than the larger 3.6-litre engine from the previous generation.

1. Towing capacity is subject to regulatory requirements, tow bar and vehicle design and towing equipment limitations. Requires fitment of optional tow bar accessory. Ask your Retailer for details of Genuine Subaru tow bar capacity and availability details. Always refer to your Owner’s Manual for towing instructions.
