2015 Subaru Outback Coming This Summer

The all-new 2015 Subaru Outback, in its fifth generation, offers the roomiest interior, most capable chassis and highest fuel-efficiency in the model’s 20-year history and is powered by a standard 175-horsepower 4-cylinder and a 256 horsepower 6-cylinder 3.6R Limited engine on the Premium and Limited trim lines which, due largely to its new Lineartronic CVT, achieves manufacturer-estimated ratings of 20 mpg city/27 mpg highway/22 combined. The wheelbase is increased by just 0.2-in., overall length by 0.6-in. and width by 0.7 in yielding a roomier passenger cabin, at 108.1 cu. ft. (up from 105.4 cu. ft.). New standard X-Mode, Hill Descent Control and Hill Start Assist augment the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive to assist the driver in navigating rough roads, slippery surfaces or steep inclines. The 2015 Outback arrives in Subaru dealerships this summer.
