What Features Come in the New 2019 Subaru Outback?

Performance, cargo, safety, and technology improvements that are already giving its Ford, Jeep, Hyundai, and Chevy SUV competition a hard time on the trail, that much is for sure. You can check out how well the new Subaru Outback hoofs it to basecamp right here in Orange at Reynolds Subaru.

The rugged station wagon of adventures gone by has become an ultra-modern crossover just as hard-wearing as the Subaru tradition, and it's back in northern Virginia and ready for excitement. All-terrain enthusiasts can look forward to:

  • The return of the capable SUBARU BOXER® engine, in flat-four and -six designs, horizontally installed, offering a lower center of gravity and fewer power transfer points, all to optimize efficiency and deliver a spirited ride
  • Standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, X-MODE® and Active Torque Vectoring, a trio that compensates for FWD understeer and RWD oversteer, proactively reduces wheel slip, and takes corners like a pro, keeping the drive confident both across the landscape and through inclement weather
  • 8.7 inches of ground clearance to avoid obstacles
  • Plenty of cargo room for any outing, up to 73.3 cubic feet, with underfloor storage and a removable tray in the hold, easily accessible via a power rear gate; factor in raised roof rails, cross bars, and the ability to tow up to 2,700 pounds, and you'll have room for extras as well as a trailerful, pop-up tent camper, dirt bike, or jet ski
  • The gold standard in safety: standard EyeSight® driver-assistance technology with the ability to automatically brake before a collision, available SUBARU STARLINK® Safety and Security, and more
  • An available blind-spot detector and rear cross-traffic alert
  • Optional reverse automatic braking to help stave off a rear collision
  • LED steering-responsive headlights to illuminate your way around corners
  • Comfortable cloth and sumptuous leather seating options, available power-adjustable and heated front and rear for the lap of luxury
  • The technological forefront: 6.5- and 8-inch SUBARU STARLINK Multimedia infotainment systems with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as optional 4G LTE Wi-Fi capability

But these aren't all there is to the new 2019 Outback. Its history speaks volumes, too. ALG, for example, considers it one of the best value retainers in its class. According to IHS Markit as recently as December 2017, 98% of Outback models purchased since 2008 are still on the road today, and moreover, it has been best-selling all-wheel-drive compact SUV for the last ten years, with the highest brand loyalty in its class in 2017. The 2018 Outback even saw five stars from the NHTSA for the ability to withstand a crash, and the auto research and valuation experts at Kelley Blue Book call it one of the ten best AWD vehicles under $25K and twelve best family cars for 2018.

Needless to say, it's an experience, and one everyone's already talking about. If you're as eager for a test drive as we are, the new Outback is soon to appear at our dealership in Orange, VA!
