2015 model year changes

The Subaru Outback is all new for 2015. It returns with new styling and a larger roomier interior. A more steeply swept windshield provides better visibility, while an aluminum hood helps reduce weight. Fuel economy is improved from 2014 models, despite the fact that the Outback is bigger in overall size. Plenty of new technology has been added as well, including hill descent mode, hill start assist and liquid filled engine mounts to help quell vibrations. All-wheel drive, as in all Subaru models, continues to be standard across the entire Outback range.

Special features for 2015

The genius of the Outback has always been its ability to straddle classifications; it helped create the crossover segment in the 1990s. As such, the Outback competes with both family cars, SUVs and of course, other crossover vehicles. With a base price just short of $25,000, the Outback should be affordable enough for families considering a new Camry or Accord. With better off-road credentials and a more usable luggage compartment, the Outback offers increased versatility over plain Jane family sedans. At the same time, the Subaru Outback offers the kind of fuel economy that most mid-sized SUVs would struggle to match.
The Subaru Outback is a popular option for those who are seeking a nimbler alternative to the crossover, standard wagon or SUV. A five-passenger wagon, this car comes in four different trim levels which include: 2.5i, 2.5i Premium, 2.5i Limited and 3.6R Limited. The base model offers 16” wheels, roof rack rails, power accessories, 60/40 rear-splitting bench, Bluetooth connectivity and a four speaker audio system with CD player and iPod/USB inputs. Upgrade to a higher trim level and get 17” wheels, fog lights, heated mirrors, powered front seats that are also heated, six speaker audio system and other useful add-ons like a sunroof, auto-dim mirrors, the EyeSight driver assist system with collision warning and lane departure warnings, GPS with backup camera and 7” touchscreen. You can choose from two different engines with this vehicle: a four-cylinder that makes 173 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque; or a 3.6-liter horizontally-opposed six-cylinder engine that churns out 256 hp and 247 lb-ft of torque. Both engines get between 21-24EPA combined mpg. The three-year/36,000-mile factory warranty can be extended to offer longer coverage for buyers.
