The most significant change for the Outback is the new powertrain pairing. A world first, Subaru engineers have combined the popular 2.0 liter Boxer diesel engine with a Lineartronic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) which brings improvements in drivability, fuel economy and emissions while widening the car's appeal. With the new engine and gearbox combination the 2014 MY Subaru Outback will return 44.8 mpg and 166g/km CO2 on the combined cycle.

The Outback line-up has received a visual upgrade, refreshing the vehicle’s looks. Emphasizing the Outback’s sense of toughness and its ability to tackle all roads and conditions, the latest model features body-coloured cladding in place of the previous iteration’s black plastic. The alloy wheels now have a gunmetal finish as standard.

For the exterior there are new 17-inch gunmetal alloy wheels, along with body-coloured bumpers, body-coloured power folding door mirrors (with integrated LED indicator repeaters), and matching colour-coded door handles. Silver roof rails and a roof spoiler are other exterior accents, while a power-sliding glass sunroof (with sunshade) and UV protected front, side and rear glass also feature. Self-leveling automatic HID headlamps and rain sensing wipers add convenience for the driver. Further highlights include front fog lights, pop-up headlight washers, heated mirrors, rear window defogger with timer, front and side window defrosters, and a windscreen wiper de-icer function.

The upgraded cabin of the latest Outback features clearer and more modern instrumentation – including the addition of a liquid crystal instrument cluster display and new materials for a number of dashboard elements. Black metallic panels bring about a more modern and premium appearance and feel, while instruments within the cockpit have been moved to improve user-friendliness.

The new SX model provides the Outback with a wealth of useful equipment inside. Audio and cruise control functions are present on the leather-trimmed steering wheel, while new sports seats at the front are heated to provide extra comfort when the weather turns cold.

For further comfort and convenience of driver and passengers, dual-zone automatic air-conditioning, Bluetooth® hands-free system, audio system with USB connectivity and a VGA centre display with rear vision camera are all present.

Additional features of leather interior and satellite navigation are available as dealer fit options if the customers wish to upgrade.
