Outdoor Enthusiasts: Check Out Why Subaru Outback is the Right Choice for Life in Culpeper

A lover of the outdoors, you're happy living the country lifestyle. So, when it comes to getting around here in northern VA, across rugged Old Dominion terrain and through some of the worst weather the commonwealth can throw at us, like your outlook, you're a do-it-yourselfer. But you're also smart with your budget, whether you're on the younger side and just headed out into the world or you have plenty of life experience behind you. That doesn't mean, however, that you're not looking for a car or SUV that's capable, loaded with the latest tech, comfortable, and fun to drive.

What time-honored wagon-become-modern crossover checks all these boxes and more for living in the Culpeper we all know and love? The answer may surprise you -- it's the new Subaru Outback. As the SUV has been updated for 2019, there's plenty for an orienteer to look forward to, both under the hood and in-cabin -- advancements you won't find elsewhere.

For one, two powertrain options appear, incorporating either a standard 175-horsepower, 2.5-liter, four-cylinder SUBARU BOXER engine or an available 256-horsepower, 3.6-liter, six-cylinder. Each is paired with an efficient Lineartronic® continuously variable transmission, and with both at your service, Outback comes ready to pull out all the stops to get you where you need to go dependably.

They dovetail with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, our automaker's standard, permanent, and always-on AWD system. It's proactive with traction as opposed to "slip-then-grip," like other manufacturers' electronic systems, better compensatory for both understeer and oversteer, and it builds in fewer moving parts than others, making it lower-maintenance. Bring a standard X-MODE®, standard Active Torque Vectoring, and 8.7 inches of ground clearance into the mix, and you can count on engine output and transmission ratios geared to reduce wheel spin as well as ample obstacle avoidance, no matter your driving conditions and especially around sharp corners.

Secondly, EyeSight®, a driver-assist system exclusive to Subaru cars and SUVs, now comes standard down the lineup, bringing to bear the safe distancing of adaptive cruise control, tracking abilities of lane-departure warning, lane-keep assist, and sway warning, and accident-evading capacity of pre-collision braking to bear on your ride.

What's more, a new Outback is prepared for almost any Culpeper adventure. Expect up to 73.3 cubic feet of cargo space with rear seats folded, roof rails with integrated retracting crossbars and tie-downs for everything from kayaks and bikes to skis and camping gear, and a towing capacity of up to 2,700 pounds -- ideal for a pop-up tent camper, dirt bike, or other small trailerful of weekend getaway supplies. That's not to mention that it's expertly equipped for one, with a choice of cloth and leather-trimmed seating, optionally heated front and rear, SUBARU STARLINK&#trade; Multimedia infotainment for entertainment control, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to connect your smartphone, available GPS navigation for finding your way, and more.
