Subaru’s new Outback will offer a new drivetrain, a visual refresh and improved ride and handling, it has been revealed.
The crossover, to be priced from £29,995, will go on sale on November 1, with a new 44.8mpg, 166g/km variant up for grabs.
A world first, the Outback will be available with a 2.0litre Boxer diesel engine with a Lineartronic CVT – prompting the fuel economy and emissions boost.
The 2014 MY Subaru Outback 2.0D Lineartronic variant will feature a new trim level, the SX.
Exteriorly, standard specification will include 17inch gunmetal alloy wheels, body-coloured bumpers, body-coloured power folding door mirrors and matching colour-coded door handles.
Silver roof rails and a roof spoiler are also included, while a power-sliding glass sunroof and UV-protected front, side and rear glass also feature.
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.
Inside, audio and cruise control functions are present on the leather-trimmed steering wheel, while new sports seats at the front are heated.
Dual-zone automatic air-conditioning, Bluetooth hands-free system, audio system with USB connectivity and a VGA centre display with rear vision camera are also present.
Additional features of leather interior and satellite navigation are available as dealer fit options.
