New Subaru Outback teased…adopts new platform

New Subaru Outback

The new Subaru Outback has been teased today ahead of its on-sale in Australia in March next year (2021).

The new Subaru Outback celebrates 25 years on-sale in Australia this year and will be the latest vehicle to adopt the Subaru Global Platform. This platform has already been rolled out under Impreza, XV and Forester. 

The images we’ve included are the only ones Subaru has released, but Subaru Australia has said “it will launch with a specification unique to the market and confirmed the wagon will be built at Subaru Corporation’s Yajima factory in Japan”.

What we do know is that the new Outback will get the Driver Monitoring System from the Forester and the latest-generation Subaru EyeSight active safety system will be standard. All Outbacks will run the same 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine and braked towing has been increased to 2000kg.

Subaru Australia General Manager, Blair Read, said: “Outback continues to set the standard for safety and driveability with an advanced suite of safety and driver assist technologies. 

“Outback will have an incredible specification list cementing it as the flagship of the Subaru range. This will appeal to both loyal Subaru customers and newcomers, who are increasingly aware of the compelling whole-of-life value that Subaru ownership represents.”
