2017 Subaru Outback Exterior

2017 Subaru Outback Overview (See Available Styles)

The Subaru Outback straddles the divide between traditional wagons and crossover SUVs, and comes standard with all-wheel drive. It seats five, and can be powered by either a four- or six-cylinder engine.

Six trims are available: the 2.5i, 2.5i Premium, 2.5i Limited, 2.5i Touring, 3.6R Limited, and 3.6R Touring.

New for 2017
For 2017, Subaru has added a new top trim level, the Touring trim. It comes with unique dark gray styling cues on the grille and wheels, as well as a silver finish on the lower-profile roof rails. Touring models are available with the 2.5-liter four-cylinder or 3.6-liter six-cylinder engine.

Additionally, Outback models are now available with reverse automatic braking that senses a collision and stops the car. A new high beam assist feature is added to the camera-based EyeSight system, and it automatically switches the headlights from the high to low beams as oncoming traffic is detected.
