Is it a capable alternative to the SUV status quo?

Subaru has been doing remarkably well lately, posting impressive growth and sales numbers over the past several years. Helping to fuel that success is a strong stable of vehicles that cover a broad range of segments, including a few that manage to straddle the line between segments and still offer the benefits of both. The Outback is one such vehicle. Framed as the “World’s First Sport Utility Wagon,” the Outback nameplate has been around since 1994 and is currently the brand’s top-selling model, bringing all the capability and utility of a crossover, but in a wagon body style that’s a little closer to a traditional passenger car. It’s a nice combo, and to keep it feeling fresh, Subaru unveiled a mid-cycle update for the Outback at the 2017 New York International Auto Show, giving it new styling, an updated interior, more technology for safety and convenience, and a few bits and pieces that lend it a more premium feel.

The appeal for something like this is clear, and on paper, it looks like it should do well amongst buyers looking for a non-SUV that fits their particular active lifestyle. But does the 2018 Outback have what it takes to steal sales from folks more inclined to get a crossover? Read on for details.

Update 6/23/2017: The 2018 Subaru Outback is currently in preparation to roll into dealers in the coming weeks, and we now have full pricing information. Compared to the outgoing model, the Outback gets a mild price increase that ranges between $250 and $495, depending on the trim level. The base model officially starts out at $25,895. Check out the prices section below for full details on model and option pricing.

2018 Subaru Outback 50th Anniversary Edition

2018 Subaru Outback 50th Anniversary Edition

Looking for a limited-edition wagon?

The Subaru Outback isn’t making many headlines today, especially when compared to other wagons on the market, but it’s getting pretty good reviews. Sure, it’s not as fancy as the Volvo V90 Cross Country or the Mercedes-Benz E-Class All-Terrain, but it offers a spacious cabin, solid off-road ability, and a decent equipment package. And it’s more affordable than the aforementioned models too. Introduced in 2014, the latest model is still pretty fresh, but Subaru is giving it the limited-edition treatment for 2018 with the 50th Anniversary Edition.

No, the Outback nameplate isn’t 50 years old yet. It’s barely on its way to its 25th anniversary. Of all the existing model, the Legacy is the oldest, and it dates back to 1989. This limited-edition model was actually launched to celebrate half a century since Subaru of America was established. The Outback is only one of seven vehicles to get this treatment, as the celebrations include all nameplates offered in the U.S. (sans the upcoming Ascent). What does it have to offer on top of the regular model? Let’s find out below.

Subaru Unveils Big Batch of Not-So-Special Limited-Edition Cars in Chicago

Subaru Unveils Big Batch of Not-So-Special Limited-Edition Cars in Chicago

Celebrates 50 years in the U.S. with boring lineup

Placed right between Detroit and Geneva, two of the year’s most important automotive events, the Chicago Auto Show is rarely something to write home about. And in recent years it has become the venue where automakers launch many special-edition and limited-edition models. The 2018 even is no exception from this rule and Subaru just showcased eight limited-edition models to celebrate its 50th anniversary on U.S. soil. The lineup includes all but the recently unveiled Ascent crossover: the BRZ, Crosstrek, Forester, Impreza, Legacy, Outback, WRX, and WRX STI.

Subaru Dresses up its Three Favorite Models for an Outing in Tokyo

Subaru Dresses up its Three Favorite Models for an Outing in Tokyo

Technically, they’re not concepts in the traditional way concepts are created

Subaru’s ho-hum presence at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show - only the new Impreza made the trip to Germany - may have been a disappointment for fans of the brand, but not all is lost because the Japanese automaker will be out in full force at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show in October. We already know that it plans to unveil a special edition version of the BRZ at the event. Now, it’s adding to its list of debuts by rolling out three “concept” versions of its three best-selling models: the Impreza, XV, and Outback.

Truth be told; none of the concepts are actual concepts, at least in the traditional way we know of concepts. Instead, they’re more like “special variants,” each coming with unique exterior and interior features that none of their standard counterparts feature. Subaru even says as much, describing them as previews of what it calls the “new Subaru story,” presumably a launching pad for what future versions of these models could look like. The company hasn’t made it clear if it plans to roll out these models in limited edition numbers like the BRZ STI Special Edition, but don’t be surprised if it does, especially if the public reacts to it as favorably as Subaru hopes.

Ditch The SUV And Try One Of These Wagons Instead

Ditch The SUV And Try One Of These Wagons Instead

Ready to break away from the herd? One of these wagons might be the solution…

In case you haven’t noticed, American consumers are still enamored with the idea of driving around in a tall-bodied, relatively off-road capable SUV with loads of space to haul around many people and lots of things. Sales of such vehicles continue to rise, and automakers are responding by churning out new models by the truckload. But is there a better means to achieve similar ends? What if, for example, you want something with the capability, cargo space, and attitude of an SUV, but the maneuverability, ease of use, and comfort of a regular passenger car? Luckily, such a combo does exist, and we’ve got five of the best examples on the market lined up right here in this in-depth comparison article.

The five vehicles in question are (in alphabetical order) the Audi A4 Allroad, the Mini Clubman All4, the Subaru Outback, the Volkswagen Golf Alltrack, and the Volvo V60 Cross Country. That’s right folks – wagons, representing a diverse price range and wide array of tastes. Once the torchbearer of utility and practicality, the wagon body style has declined in popularity with the rise of the SUV. But just because something is trendy doesn’t mean it’s good, right? Read on to find out what makes these five vehicles fantastic alternatives to the SUV status quo. You rebel, you.

2015 - 2017 Subaru Outback

2015 - 2017 Subaru Outback

The wagon that thinks it’s a crossover

Considering the Subaru Outback is essentially the Legacy with a bigger booty, it comes as no surprise that Subaru wasted no time applying the updates from the 2015 Legacy to the Outback. As history has shown us, the 2015 Outback got similar exterior light units, grille, and overall styling. Inside, the Outback got the same redesigned dashboard, instrument panel and center console with softer, more premium materials. Of course, it won’t get the coupe-like styling in the rear because of its wagon nature, but that’s OK because it’s an Outback, right? As usual, the new Outback also got all the plastic body cladding and body-protective features normally associated with the Outback, you know, to protect it in case you really do decide to take a ride “out back.”

Of course, the powertrains from the Legacy carry over to the Outback, so there is a 2.50liter with 175 horsepower and 174 pound-feet and a 3.6-liter with 256 horsepower and 247 pound-feet. It what almost seems like an insult, the Outback is only available with a CVT transmission, and Subaru has no intention of offering the manual transmission the car deserves. It might be enough to kill the deal for some of you who might be considering the Outback, but no everybody likes to row their own gears. So, keep on reading to learn even more about the new Outback and what all it brings to the table.

Update 05/27/2016: Subaru has released pricing for the 2017 Outback. The base 2.5i trim starts at $25,645 while the range-topping Touring trim starts at $39,070.

2016 Subaru Outback 3.6R Limited – Driven

2016 Subaru Outback 3.6R Limited – Driven

The venerable Subaru Outback has been around in the U.S. since 1995 when Subaru added a wagon version of its Legacy sedan to its lineup. Now some 21 years later, the Outback is still going strong, especially after its last generational change for the 2015 model year. Nothing changes for 2016, a fact that’s just fine with most Subaru loyalists and fans.

The 2015 redesign mirrors that of the Legacy sedan, getting a cleaner exterior design and an updated interior, among other improvements. Both the 2.5-liter flat-four and 3.6-liter flat-six carry over, along with the CVT transmission. Neither are eye-opening performance monsters, but both work well at moving the Outback down the highway or trail.

Speaking of trails, the Outback comes with Subaru’s full-time AWD system and 8.7 inches of ground clearance – only 0.1 of an inch less than a Jeep Wrangler! And then there’s X-Mode, complete with Hill Decent Control, ready to tackle the really rough stuff. The Outback is no rock crawler, but it will take you anywhere you’d want to go short of needing solid axles, mud tires, and a winch. Perhaps that’s why the Snowbelt states are covered in Outbacks.

Despite the lack of winter weather in Central Florida, I recently had a week to spend with the 2016 Outback. My tester came packed with the 3.6-liter, dressed in the Limited trim, and wearing $3,000 worth of options. So what’s this high-riding wagon like to live with? Keep reading to find out.

2015 Subaru Outback - Driven

2015 Subaru Outback - Driven

I used to have a lot of love for the Subaru Outback. I owned one for a while, and it was one of the best cars I have ever possessed. All Subaru’s have a very special feel about them, like they are built for a purpose. They are a bit rough, a little uncouth, but that is what makes them special. There is this feeling that they will really take you over any terrain, and that they will never cease to function. Nothing quite drives or feels like a Subaru. But then my Outback died, and I have since moved on.

Now, despite this great drive, Subaru has long been lambasted for creating cars that are too poorly built, too uncomfortable and too unrefined. Now with the introduction of the all-new 2015 Outback, Subaru is promising that all those woes have been corrected and it is promising more power and fuel economy to boot. Is this new machine good enough to make me get rid of my Volkswagen go back to Subaru? Has Subaru managed to fix all its issues while maintaining that special feel and attitude that has defined the brand for decades? My Outback was a 2000 model; what has Subaru managed in 15 years over three more generations?

I spent seven days and more than 500 miles beating the new Outback on-road and off to see if it still had that special magic.

TopSpeed Podcast Episode 030 LIVE

Hopefully everyone enjoyed the show. We had a great time putting it on, and maybe it will brighten up your day when you hear it. As always, we appreciate anyone and everyone who listens and watches. Don’t forget to leave us your questions and Own, Drive, Burn suggestions below in the comments.

This week we have Justin back, and he has a new car for Weekly Wheels, so we let him start things off with a look at the Acura ILX. After that I get to talk about how the new 2015 Subaru Outback is a great SUV, but a terrible Subaru. Mark finishes us off with a look at the new Audi A3. Small spoiler, I like it more than he does, even if it is missing a door.

For the news segment of the show I spend some time talking about my new review for Forza Horizon 2. I think that is the only important part of our whole show really, but the other two figured that we should cover other news as well. In the end we talked about the Lamborghini Asterion, the death of the Lotus Evora, and Infiniti’s desire to build a car that it kind of already makes. We also have some truck talk with Mark as we discuss the fuel economy ratings of the new Canyon and Colorado trucks before we all get angry at GM’s latest “sport truck.”

We didn’t have any questions from last week’s show to answer, so we skipped the Question and Answer section to head straight to Own, Drive, Burn. Our own Ciprian provided us with a trio of the worst cars Ferrari ever made to choose from. I’ll be honest; it wasn’t a super great or entertaining ODB. Sorry about that.

As always, we all hope that everyone has a super great Friday and a wonderful weekend. We will be back next Thursday with another awesome episode. See you guys then.

Spy Shots: 2015 Subaru Outback Caught Testing for the First Time

Spy Shots: 2015 Subaru Outback Caught Testing for the First Time

The all-new 2015 Outback has been spotted roaming European streets while dressed in bulky camouflage garb. Though the car is fully disguised, its easy to tell Subaru has slicked up its best-selling model for the last half of the decade.

Starting with the updated front fascia that includes xenon headlights, lower fog lights, and the traditional-to-Outback high approach angle, the design seems to be more styled than before. The hood has some nice character lines riding just over the front fenders and rising into the A-pillars, which rise at a more sloped, aerodynamic angle.

Just below the A-pillars, the side mirrors are repositioned on the door. The body cladding along the rocker panel returns, as does the cladding along the lower front valance. The matte-black painted wheels should look nice one coated in a proper finish. Out back, the rear bumper still includes a step and large red reflectors. Up above, the rear glass enjoys a more forward rake, much like the front windshield. The roof rails return as well, assuring us the Outback won’t lose that utilitarian, do-anything, carry-all we’ve come to love.

Though it’s hard to see from the photos, the photographer notes the dash has an all-new design with two large gauge pods, a sportier-looking steering wheel with silver paddle shifters, and new HVAC vents.

We expect the Outback to get an updated version of its current 2.5-liter flat-four to serve as the standard mill. Rumors swirl around Subaru dropping the upmarket 3.6-liter flat-six for the 2.0-liter turbocharged flat-four from the Forester in premium-trimmed Outbacks, though nothing is confirmed. Of course, Subaru’s standard AWD will return, making this wagon a capable winter weather hauler and light-duty off-roader.

2013 Subaru Outback

2013 Subaru Outback

It’s time to take a little break from all the Subaru BRZ excitement and focus our attention on other models from Subaru’s line-up. This is especially important now that the 2012 New York Auto Show is getting closer and the company has announced a series of debuts for the show. The first is a restyled version of their Outback SUV. The 2013 model will receive a new exterior face, a new, more efficient powertrain, and a series of new safety systems. All in all, it looks like the Outback is prepared to be better than ever.

The 2013 Subaru Outback will be offered in three trim levels - Base, Premium, and Limited - and all of them are powered by a new double-overhead-cam (DOHC) 2.5-liter FB series Boxer engine that delivers a total of 173 hp and 174 lb.-ft. of torque. Despite the extra 3 HP, this new engine will deliver a fuel economy of 30 mpg (on the highway) - a 1 mpg increase over the previous version.

2011 Subaru Outback 3.6

2011 Subaru Outback 3.6

Back in the days when crossovers were just something ghosts did, there was the Subaru Outback, a vehicle that looked like a wagon, but was superb off-road. Established in 1995, the Outback became the synonym for durability, ease of use, and excellent all around ability.

The styling on the other hand, was always a bit low end. That really didn’t seem to matter at the time to buyers, but in today’s world, styling goes hand in hand with all weather ability so Subaru had to make a change. Luckily, they did and for 2011, the new Outback is better than ever.

Subaru has been one of the lesser-known Japanese companies for some time now. In fact, some people think they came from Australia, but that’s beside the point. While they might not have much influence on the American industry, they are resilient and during the economic recession, the company only declined by 0.8%.

With the new Outback, Subaru looks to continue their success, but this time things are a tad different. Before, it seemed that styling was about as important as the location of the light in the glove box, but now, exterior styling has taken a front row seat. The new 2011 Outback look pretty good, words that would never have been uttered about previous generation Outbacks.

Subaru issues another recall for the 2010 Outback and the 2010 Legacy due to wiring problems

Subaru issues another recall for the 2010 Outback and the 2010 Legacy due to wiring problems

The problems accompanying the 2010 Subaru Legacy and Outback aren’t over, according to the National Highway Safety Administration.

A few months after being recalled for a flawed CVT cooler hose that could potentially crack or split, Subaru has issued another recall for their two models, with this latest issue being a wiring problem in the steering column behind the vehicle’s steering wheel that could develop stress cracks and, in turn, lead to an eventual break. This break could end up shutting down a number of the vehicle’s electrical components, including the cruise and radio controls, paddle shifters, and car horn, in the process.

All in all, over 74,000 models of both the 2010 Outback SUV and the Legacy sedan built between February 16, 2009 and April 12, 2010 are being subjected to the recall.

Owners of the said models are now being requested to get in contact with any of their local Subaru dealerships so in the event their vehicles are covered in the recall, the dealerships can take action and replace any of the defective parts at no cost.

It’s not the kind of news Subaru – or any other automaker – is looking to be attached to, but now that it is, it’s good to know that they’re making the effort in fixing the problem before the situation gets any worse.

Subaru to recall 2010 Legacy sedan and Outback crossover due to faulty CVT cooler hoses

Subaru to recall 2010 Legacy sedan and Outback crossover due to faulty CVT cooler hoses

Japanese automaker Subaru has been tasked by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to have two of their new models - the 2010 Legacy sedan and the Outback crossover - recalled over a flawed CVT cooler hose. It turns out that these CVT cooler hoses are susceptible to cracking or splitting, which could then lead to a fluid leak.

When that happens while the vehicles are being driven, it could potentially turn into a dangerous situation when the vehicle stops and could result in a crash. All in all, the recall is said to affect a total number of 29,443 models in the US with Subaru already informing all model owners to drop by their local Subaru dealerships to have the CVT cooler hoses replaced at no cost.

So, any owners who have either the 2010 Legacy sedan or the Outback crossover that fall under this recall, please can contact Subaru at 1-856-488-8500 to inquire about how to get this situation fixed.

2010 Subaru Outback

2010 Subaru Outback

Subaru was having a little bit of trouble moving Legacy wagons in the mid-90s, so it raised the ride hight and added a little body cladding. The Outback was born, and since then it’s gone to replace the entire Legacy wagon line in the U.S. Since Subaru used the New York Auto Show to premiere the production version of the new Legacy sedan, then it’s no surprise the Outback was right there too.

The engine lineup is straight out of the new Legacy. There is a choice of the 170 hp 2.5-liter boxer four or the 256 hp 3.6-liter boxer six (the 2.5-liter turbocharged engine in the Legacy is skipped.) The new outback is wider, longer and taller than its predecessor, and offers the same distinctive “cat eye” look of the Legacy sedan.

Subaru introduces us to the 2010 Legacy and Outback

Subaru introduces us to the 2010 Legacy and Outback

Top Speed was invited to a special showing for an up close look at two new Subarus for 2010, the redesigned Legacy sport sedan and Outback wagon. According to the sales sheets more and more new car customers are being handed the keys to a Subaru because they had the fortune of being one of the few automobile manufacturers to turn a profit last year. Cash For Clunkers certainly didn’t hurt either, doubling their sales last month alone. Although the Japanese automaker’s market share in the U.S. may not be that big of a slice of the pie, rising from 2.2% to 2.5% this year, with a few anticipated improvements they expect to keep that momentum going by offering the right car to the right customer. Subaru plans on doing this by offering a range of new vehicles that meet the right: size, equipment and price requirements of the consumer.

Over the course of the afternoon we learned that Fuji Heavy Industries, the automaker’s parent company considers Subaru to be a luxury brand around the world and they are sold at a premium over other Japanese automobiles like Hondas, Toyotas and Nissans in Europe. However the general public doesn’t feel the a same way in this market. In the U.S. Subaru is seen as a niche brand reserved for the rugged duties of snowy northeast winters, but what shoppers fail to realize is that from rainy South Florida summers to the constantly wet Northwest where precipitation is an issue, these are also perfect places for Subaru’s symmetrical all wheel drive to shine.

Subaru Legacy & Outback to debut in Frankfurt

Subaru Legacy & Outback to debut in Frankfurt

The automotive arm of Fuji Heavy Industries has announced that the European versions of the new Subaru Legacy and Outback will make their world debuts at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show in September and will then go on sale in the summer of 2010.

The 2010 Subaru Legacy is being offered in two body styles, the first is a sedan and the second is a wagon. The upcoming Legacy will be powered by either a 2.0 Liter or a 2.5 Liter gas burning boxer engine as well as a 2.0 Liter turbo diesel mill. Both the sedan and wagon will be larger in both length and wheelbase which in turn will provide more legroom for the back seat passengers.

The 2010 Subaru Outback will be offered with a 2.5 Liter gasoline engine and a 2.0 Liter diesel power plant. The top of the line flagship version of the 2010 Subaru Outback model will have a 3.6 Liter flat six under the hood.
