About Subaru Outback


Originally intended to be a stopgap for an SUV, the Subaru Outback wagon carved out its own vehicle niche, gathering a devoted following of fans who refused to make the jump from this all-terrain station wagon to a full-fledged sport-utility vehicle. Although it is currently available in both sedan and wagon body types, the wagon has always been the more popular option. The primary distinction between the Outback and the Subaru Legacy is ground clearance: The 2007 Subaru Outback has a ground clearance of up to 8.7 inches, giving it moderate off-road capability while making it virtually unstoppable in snow. Unfortunately, it has become evident that the vast majority of wagon and SUV purchasers have little to no interest in off-road driving. And, now that numerous crossover SUVs can match the Outback’s handling capabilities while providing more inside space, the Subaru’s advantages are shrinking.

The third-generation Subaru Outback, which was last revised in 2005, adapts to evolving consumer tastes. Earlier models had a rugged, backwoods appearance, but the contemporary sedan and wagon are sleek, angular, and available in monochromatic or two-tone paint. There are now three engines available, the greatest of which is a 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 243 horsepower. The turbo four has a new piece of technology this year in the form of the SI-Drive (Subaru Intelligent Drive) system, which allows the driver to tune engine performance for efficiency or performance by selecting one of three modes: Intelligent, Sport, and Sport Sharp. SI-Drive also modifies transmission responsiveness on Outback XTs with automatic transmissions. Subaru claims that Intelligent mode saves 10% on fuel, but in our experience, it makes the turbo Outback feel unduly sluggish in traffic. We anticipate that the majority of drivers would prefer Sport Sharp mode, which gives a quick yet smooth response to throttle inputs.
