New 2025 Subaru Outback: Pricing, Release Date & Redesign! Subaru’s Outback is based on the company’s 30-year-old concept of elevating the suspension of a standard family station wagon to make a vehicle more akin to an SUV. Given the present and continuing fixation on trucks and crossovers in the auto market, why wouldn’t it?

The Outback has the look of an SUV but drives more like a sedan and has an enormous load capacity. The base engine is a four-cylinder, but a 260 HP turbocharged four-cylinder is available as an upgrade. Both of the Outback’s engines power the front wheels via a CVT, and all models feature all-wheel drive.

The interior is attractive, especially in the higher versions, but if you want something truly luxurious, you might want to look at the Audi A for all roads or the Volvo V 60 cross-country instead. We believe that the Outback’s competitive pricing and improved packaging may sway some consumers who were considering more expensive luxury brands for the 2024 model year.

The grille and front bumper of Subaru’s most rugged-looking station wagon, the Wilderness Trim, undergo slight updates that make it look even more ready to hit the dirt. Otherwise, the Outback will be the same in the coming year. The Premium version offers the most value for money because, due to its extensive standard and extra equipment, we believe it is not worthwhile to upgrade to a higher trim level in order to gain the turbo’s increased acceleration and the 800 pounds of additional towing capacity.

As the base model is only available with the 182 HP four-cylinder, an 11.6-inch touchscreen for GLT mobile hotspot heated front seats, power adjustable driver’s seat, additional USB ports, and other features are standard on the Outback Premium, but not on the base model. The option that includes blind spot monitoring, a hands-free power liftgate, and passive entry with push button start is the one we recommend.

Two different two five-liter flat four-cylinder engines produce 182 and 260 HP, respectively for the Outback. Both are coupled to an automated transmission that varies in speed, like an eight-speed gearbox reducing loud engine noise. All Subarus, with the exception of the rear-drive BRZ sports coupe, come equipped with all-wheel drive as standard, and the Outback is no exception. Our regular Outback test vehicle’s acceleration was ordinary, and its transmission was a bit sluggish.
