Car video reviews:

Body style: Wagon (station wagon, estate, combi, touring)
Segment: Medium

Designed for people with an active lifestyle, the Subaru Outback was a combination between an SUV and a wagon.

Based on the Subaru Legacy’s platform, the Outback had a rugged outdoor look with added ground clearance and protective side cladding.

The tall suspension configuration allowed a ground clearance of 8.7 inches, while the SUV styling cues featured pronounced wheel arches that made the Outback look handsome and confident.

Offered with a single wagon body style, the Outback ranged from basic to near luxury, depending on the trim level chosen.

A perfect match for those who were looking for an outstanding off-road performance, but not in the body of an SUV, the Outback felt like a mid-size sedan while driving and unleashed its nature on bumpier roads.

One of the best on the market, the Subaru’s symmetrical all-wheel-drive system was available, providing maximum traction.

The long list of accessories included roof rails, numerous cargo organisers and even a dog mat.

The cabin was fitted with good quality materials, the tall seating offered the driver a good view over traffic and the roomy seats in the back were perfect for 2 adults. The cargo space was a good size and allowed storing bigger items.

The instruments were easy to read, and the controls were intuitively placed.

The base version was not equipped with standard steering wheel-mounted audio controls. The base 2.5i came with a 5-speed manual transmission, front side and side curtain airbags and 4-wheel antilock disc brakes, as well as air conditioning, keyless entry and cruise control.

The Limited versions offered a turbocharges or a 6-cylinder engine, more powerful than the underpowered 2.4-liter, an automatic transmission, a power moonroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, 17-inch alloy wheel and a premium Harman Kardon audio system.
