Subaru Outback Models and Outback History

In 2008, Subaru discontinued the sedan version of the Outback and added a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel and auxiliary audio jack as standard features. Meanwhile, a new instrument panel debuted and the front and rear were restyled. 2009 featured subtle trim level changes. In 2010, Subaru released a redesigned Outback with new styling features and a roomier interior. Model years 2011-2012 got subtle trim level updates. A restyled front, an upgraded four-cylinder engine, revamped suspension and a new continuously variable transmission (CVT) marked the major changes for 2013. The Outback would coast into 2014 relatively unchanged.
