The Subaru Outback is a 5-seater versatile vehicle that's ready to go on- and off-the-roads of the Philippines. Tracing its roots back to the 1994, this station wagon turned SUV was named after the vast and remote outback regions of Australia - signifying an emphasis to its moderate off-road capabilities.
Subaru injected a bit of adrenaline into the Outback’s design. With its muscular fenders, a glance on its side reveals a sporty streamlined look.
The interior, on the other hand, sets the mood of the passengers for an engaging journey. Aside from the premium-grade leather seats, it also houses a dual-zone automatic climate control, and a 7-inch premium audio system with AUX/USB ports, routed through 8 Harman Kardon speakers. Driving information is displayed via 3.5-inch full-color LCD, plus a host of driving conveniences like cruise control and paddle shifters are standard as well.
At the heart of the all-new Outback is a redesigned FB25 3.6L 6-cylinder 24-valve boxer engine with 260 hp and 350 Nm of torque, mated to an 8-speed Lineartronic CVT. It is also available in a 2.5L 4-cylinder boxer engine, capable of churning out 175 hp and 235 Nm of torque. Engine enhancements include an improved ECU, repositioned tumbler generator valve, and reshaped intake port.
The Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive system with Active-Torque Split and X-MODE offers better driving performance on slippery or rough surfaces. When engaged, X-MODE matches engine, braking, and AWD performance to any given road condition.
Motor Image Pilipinas, Inc. (MIPI), the official distributor of Subaru vehicles in the Philippines, adds a new variant for the Subaru Outback, the 2.5i-S. As a treat, the first 50 buyers of this variant will receive a huge discount.
For this year’s Manila International Auto Show (MIAS), Motor Image Pilipinas (MIP) pulled off the wraps on 2 new Subaru vehicles. The first is the all-new Legacy and its crossover brother which is this, the all-new Outback.
